Thai Smile Palm Springs

Explore fresh, flavorful Thai dishes made with the finest ingredients at the original Thai Smile of the desert. A taste of authentic Thai food with traditional roots in a modern atmosphere. Thai Smile Palm Springs was established in 1991 by Yim Priddy. “Yim” is the Thai word for "smile," therefore; the restaurant was named for Yim and her pleasant personality. Current owners are Yim's son, Mai Prayongyam, and his wife, Noi Charnchalerm, who moved to Palm Springs from Boston where they operated a successful Thai restaurant. To ensure the highest food quality and consistency of flavors, Mai continues to follow family recipes and personally trains each chef himself. He also makes sure that his servers are competent, courteous and well-equipped to answer all menu questions. Awarded the Thai Select Seal of Approval by the Royal Thai Government Ministry of Commerce, Thai Smile Palm Springs has consistently been named "Best of the Valley" by readers of The Desert Sun.
