Thai Smile Restaurant Review

: This popular Thai restaurant made an exodus from the Uptown Design District to a larger space and better location at the corner of Indian Canyon and Tahquitz Canyon Way. The husband-and-wife team of Piriya “Mai” Prayongyam and Nicha “Noi” Charnchalerm share culinary duties and they created a menu of flavorful dishes. Tofu pad thai is well seasoned and features a medley of sautéed rice noodles with fried tofu, bean sprouts, scallions and crushed peanuts in a mild sauce. The “sizzling combo” provides a taste of everything, with chicken, beef and shrimp, tossed with mixed vegetables, again in a mild sauce. You can create your own dish, too, by choosing vegetables and adding fried tofu, seafood or meat. Sauces tend to be subdued to appease Western tastes, but you can ask for any dish to be prepared spicy or extra spicy. Finish off with the coconut ice cream, which doubles as both a palate refresher and dessert.
