I have dined at this Thai restaurant for years and always keep coming back. I would first like to point out this is NOT a Chinese food restaurant; it is Thai food although they have some dishes which might be associated with that type of...cuisine. I love their authentic Thai dishes and a chance to really spice up your order depending on how many "stars" you wish. I am crazy about the owner and the staff. They may seem distant (and even a tad rude to others) but it is because they remain extremely busy and don't have a lot of time for chit-chat. I would recommend this place to anyone.More

If you like authentic Asian food this is the place to eat in Frankfort. Always good at a rasonable price. Resturant looks like a hole in the wall but it hides its unique food quality

Love our Thai Smile! This is my place to sneak away for a quick lunch or have a quiet date night with my hubby. I love the nam sod- ground chicken, savory lime sauce, peanuts... it’s very tasty. The crab rangoons are awesome, as are...the egg rolls. My husband loves the garlic chicken.More

I have eaten here several times and they never fail me. Lunch time during the weeek is super busy so adjust accordingly and dont let it stop you from getting a good meal at a good price. The chicken pad thai is my go to...favorite right now.More

Our food was fair at best. I tried the pad Thai, the shrimp were cooked into little balls, they were so over done, the dish was tasteless. The service was fast and friendly. The atmosphere was loud. The group near us let their kids run...all around the restaurant, iPads were at full volume. We were disappointed in the entire experience.More

This little spot is hidden away in a half empty shopping center in Frankfort. The service is always expedient and attentive. Some of the Thai owners/servers are a lot of fun and will joke around with you while you order. The egg rolls are crispy...and hot. I had the Pad Kee Mao, which is stir fried rice noodles, chicken, basil, tomatoes, broccoli, egg (which I could not detect), and bamboo shoots in a sweet and sour sauce. You can order based on up to a five star scale (five being the spiciest, Thai hot). I do not think even Thai hot is particularly spicy, but this may be a personal preference/disposition. I asked for two extra cups of chili sauce. The first cup kicked it up a notch, but the second one changed the texture with too many seeds, without adding more spice (my fault, not theirs). Overall, though, good food. They also had a volcano chicken I was interested in (friend chicken with garlic sauce and bell pepper). They also had multiple combinations of meat, sweet, spicy, and even fruity (pineapple). Lots of things to try over serval visits! Large portions so there are plenty of leftovers.More

We stopped by for lunch on a Tuesday and the place was packed with what seemed to be workers on their lunch breaks. We were impressed with not only the food, but also the efficient set up and service. Take out orders are distributed at...a separate station, and tables are turned quickly by staff, who all help each other out. We were seated within a few minutes, and served our food very quickly. I noted there are earlier comments about having to order at the counter, but that was not the case. It was full service at the table. We enjoyed lunch portions of chicken pad thai, which were very good. We would definitely return!More

We were visiting from out of town & when I looked for an Asian restaurant this one had a lot of good reviews. The service was friendly. One of my boys has special dietary needs and the staff and cooks communicated clearly with each other...and made him a meal he could eat that was delicious! We all enjoyed our food. My youngest and I wanted to share the Nam Sod. I asked if it was spicy (youngest is 5). I was told it wasn’t, but it was. It was delicious, ...but too spicy for him. Fortunately there was enough other food he could eat. A lot of the reviews mentioned this place being cheap but I honestly found their prices comparable to other Asian restaurants. We were there for dinner, so maybe they have cheaper lunch options?More

LOVE Thai Smile! It’s my favorite Frankfort comfort food. It’s a must do for out of town guests. Everything I’ve had is good. My favorites are the Pad Thai and Pineapple Fried Rice. Large Portions insure late night snacks or lunch the next day. Check...it out.More

I've not had a lot of Thai food. I've never been to Thailand or anywhere in Asia. This could be a horrible representation of what Thai food should really be for all I know. But it's Delicious! It's not health food (at least not what...I order), but it's soooo good. It's a real treat meal for me and my family.More
