This is a small place. The food was just so so. Not a place I will return to. But might work for others.

We ordered 8 entrees and everything except the Phad Thai was very good to excellent. Phad Thai was rather bland but all other dishes were well seasoned, fresh and not oily, with high quality chicken and/or tofu.

Had dinner at the Thai Smile Restaurant. We were there early and the only customers about 4:30. Started filling up before we left. Seemed like repeat customers. Food was good, service good, family owned.

Solid neighborhood Thai. Cozy. Incredibly friendly. Good basic American-style Thai food. We are never disappointed. We go elsewhere for the more authentic and edgier Thai food, but this place is definitely our neighborhood joint.

They don't call it Thai Smile for nothing. The owner, who is also the waitress, is always smiling and laughing. But don't come here for that, come here for the great Thai food. I especially like the curry noodle soup with shrimp and chicken. Not...More
