We love Thai cuisine. So even though the reviews were mixed we decided to give it a try. Mistake. Not enough staff for amount of customers in the restaurant. Unfortunately they were working hard but a couple of bar trays would of helped with the serving of drinks. Two trips to a table for four drinks is a little crazy.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant otherwise we would not have eaten there. The room was worn and dated. As there were only a few diners the service was good. The food was excellent which made up for the overall look of the place. There appeared to be a lot of local people coming in for take out which was a... More

Thai Palms has good food but the service is a little off. The luncheon special delivers! Soup, salad, main course, rice and egg roll for under $8.00. They will cook the food to order in terms of spiceyness as well as choice of meat. Vegetarian selections are available. Atmosphere is fine. Family owned and operated. A bargain in today's economy!

Went here on recommendation from hotel and we had not had Thai food yet on this trip, so decided to give it a try. The atmosphere is pretty sparse, but the food was great. We had Yellow Curry which is not always on Thai menus, and it was great!

The food was good. Only one server so service was a little slow. It's an older restaurant and seemed pretty authentic. I visited on a warm night. Not sure if they have air conditioning.

Huge servings of totally freshly prepared ingredients, wonderful flavors, beats all other Thai restaurants in the valley by far. Just the dining room is a bit outdated and would need to be made a bit more welcoming and "warm". but if you care about what's in your plate, you will love Thai Palms, guaranteed. Service was very good too.

Some friends re with tcommended the place, so we went to find out that one has to point at the menu because it's too difficult to communicate with the servers. The place is kind of dark I did not feel comfortable. Our table was not clean i had to take some napkins and wipe it. But if you like that... More

The food was wonderful. We had the Mango Curry and it was refreshing on a hot summer evening. Will be going back there on my next vista to Desert Hot Springs.
