We called ahead as soon as we checked into our hotel room on a Friday night, and Pacific Thai held a table for us when it was quite busy. My spouse and I shared the pad Thai and the red curry with a side of brown rice. The pad Thai was okay, but not really spicy at all. The red... More

Had a late meal here....only two tables and they did mess up our order somewhat but hey on holidays so it didnt matter. Green chicken curry was heavy on the fennel which tasted a bit odd. Nevertheless it was a good all round meal

We eat at Pacific Thai two or three times a month. It's comfortable to eat there and we often take out to eat at home. Excellent value and excellent food. The owner is working on the floor and all the staff are friendly an very experienced. This place is frequented by locals and tourists alike

We were whipped after hiking in the redwoods and wanted something different. We found Pacific Thai and ended our day happy. Good options for our vegetarian and I got my yellow curry craving knocked out with a great mix of chicken and veg. YUM.

Booked. Unnecessarily so. Two other groups one left pretty soon after we arrived. Food OK. Made the mistake of ordering spicy Green curry and spicy fried rice. Total misunderstanding. Food spiced up with chilli flakes. Totally uneatable. Not all their fault. Tom Yum soup probably OK but couldn't eat it because out mouths burning. Made a quick exit having eaten... More

Visited on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. We did not have a reservation so we went a bit later than usual. We still had to wait about 15 minutes as the place was packed. Four of us ordered dishes and did not share. We were all happy with our choices and the reasonable prices.

We came here because we thought it was a Thai restaurant. While they have a few curries, it's not really a Thai place but a mix of different cuisines like a lot of places in Carmel. It was very good however.

Best drunken noodles ever. Great green curry. Would skip the soup; lacked substance.Will go back next vacation. Hang with the locals.

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.
