Busy place with excellent food. Dishes nicely spiced to your preferred heat - from mild to spicy. Good for families and small groups. Food arrives quickly and piping hot. On-street parking not a problem. A couple of outside tables for warm weather dining. Reservations recommended for especially busy times and larger groups.

This is our favorite Thai restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. The dishes are always well spiced with fresh ingredients and consistent in quality. The service is always great and the food is served in a timely manner. Love the curries, pad thai, and drunken noodles. Their soups are fantastic.

We were looking forward to trying this place as we like Thai food. We had been out all day golfing and were looking forward to a good meal. We found it a little rushed, not easy to relax and take our time. food was good but possibly lacked some of the flavours we were expecting from Thai food. Overall not... More

This is our go-to restaurant for Thai food. My favorite is their green curry with shrimp. Lots of fresh vegetables and plenty of shrimp and spice. Also love their Panang curry and Thai fried rice. Nice cozy atmosphere for dining in and fast service for takeout. Reasonably priced fare.

We went to Pacific Thai Cuisine for dinner. We had Red Coconut Curry Shrimp and Sticky Rib, both with sticky rice. The service was excellent, meal was delicious, and we were out of there in about 30 min. The red curry sauce in particular was phenomenal.

My wife had just returned from Thailand and I have visited there myself many times. Thus,we do have some knowledge of what authentic Thai food is like. We found the restaurant quite authentic and the food very well prepared. The atmosphere was very nice and cozy as well. Parking was easily available on the street. Service was also excellent. The...

The fog rolled in and we wanted something warm and ...... Thai. Found this place as we were driving around and had to wait for a table....always a good sign when visiting a new town.

We were in town on a busy weekend, and looking for a reasonable meal without a long wait. Pacific Thai fit the bill, and then some. There was a very short wait when we stopped in on Saturday night, though the restaurant was packed. The service was fast and friendly, and we were very pleased with our meal. The drunken... More

Stopped by for a quick dinner with my wife. The service is fast and friendly but the food really did not excite us very much. The mood was set pretty low when we were seated right next to the restroom and the place was almost completely empty! The spicy Thai basil entrée was quite good. The portions are large as... More

Thai me up! This place is amazing. Cozy dining spaces and limited seating so reservations are recommended. The service is prompt and the food very delicious. The prices were fair, about $15/person for dinner, excludes any liquor. Limited street parking too so lunch might be a problem. We were there Saturday night for an early dinner around 6 PM and...
