Thai Smile is a nice, little neighborhood restaurant with good Thai food, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. Good place for lunch or dinner with a variety of meat and vegetarian options.

I don't know what it is about Thai Smile but I enjoy this Thai cooking over all other Thai food. I've tried about a dozen different restaurants and this is still my fav!
