I ordered with my eyes on this one and wound up taking a lot of it home. I had Pad Ti and my husband had Garb that he said was fantastic and I felt the same about my meal. The owner greeted us and the staff were great. ! Love the prices!

My husband and I, true Thai food lovers, ate here twice a day during our stay in Monterey for ten days. The food was out of this word! We especially liked red curry with chicken and tofu, pad thai, chicken satay, and fresh spring rolls. The service was fast and curteous. The location is also great...right in the middle of... More

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
