We recently stayed in Pacific Grove. The first night, we were too tired to cook so we figured we'd grab some thai food and picked this place because it was walking distance to our rental and we'd already had some wine. I'm so glad we did, because it had the best panang curry I've had in a really long time.... More

This small, unpretentious Thai restaurant on Pacific Grove's main street offers inexpensive, fresh, and tasty meals - and low cost luncheon specials.

The place is not large, but charming and lots of street parking. We didn't have reservations, but we were there off season, so check when it is busier. I had the red curry which was recommended by many on this site. It came in a large bowl full of chicken and veggies. The sauce was absolutely delicious, spicy and full... More

Lovely spot in the charming village of Pacific Grove. Easy to find on a corner of the main drag, Lighthouse Ave. Easy parking. Delectable food. The fragrance of lemongrass, coconut, and ginger made me swoon before I had a bite. Typical Thai menu but cooked with love and thoughtfully presented. The secret ingredients of Kaffir Lime leaves and Thai basil... More

I ordered with my eyes on this one and wound up taking a lot of it home. I had Pad Ti and my husband had Garb that he said was fantastic and I felt the same about my meal. The owner greeted us and the staff were great. ! Love the prices!

My husband and I, true Thai food lovers, ate here twice a day during our stay in Monterey for ten days. The food was out of this word! We especially liked red curry with chicken and tofu, pad thai, chicken satay, and fresh spring rolls. The service was fast and curteous. The location is also great...right in the middle of... More

Busy place with excellent food. Dishes nicely spiced to your preferred heat - from mild to spicy. Good for families and small groups. Food arrives quickly and piping hot. On-street parking not a problem. A couple of outside tables for warm weather dining. Reservations recommended for especially busy times and larger groups.

This is our favorite Thai restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. The dishes are always well spiced with fresh ingredients and consistent in quality. The service is always great and the food is served in a timely manner. Love the curries, pad thai, and drunken noodles. Their soups are fantastic.

We were looking forward to trying this place as we like Thai food. We had been out all day golfing and were looking forward to a good meal. We found it a little rushed, not easy to relax and take our time. food was good but possibly lacked some of the flavours we were expecting from Thai food. Overall not... More

This is our go-to restaurant for Thai food. My favorite is their green curry with shrimp. Lots of fresh vegetables and plenty of shrimp and spice. Also love their Panang curry and Thai fried rice. Nice cozy atmosphere for dining in and fast service for takeout. Reasonably priced fare.

Thank forteMI
