My brother and I were exploring Alhambra and decided it was time to for lunch. We drove around downtown and decided upon Thai Purple. There was plenty of parking spaces; However most of the meter spaces were for 30-45 minute and we thought it was too short a time for lunch. We parked and walked to this restaurant from the... More

Was there for lunch and the Thai artifacts and decoration was really great. The set lunch choices are very good. More than enough food, soup and drink.

The food here is really good! We had the pad Thai and it was so delicious. The spring rolls were different, not to our liking. They had shrimp in them and were very large spring rolls. Our biggest gripe of this restaurant where the televisions that were all over the small dining room. They were loud and huge and the... More

When first arriving to restaurant was not greeted right away. Only two tables were occupied. Two waiters with ear buds were standing ar the counter next to kithen. A table was pointed to me that was empty. Had to ask waiter to clean table when he brought the menu. After reading reviews, I decided to try the Tuesday special, Pad... More

I took my daughter here for lunch. The food is good. The wait staff was not very attentive. We had the lunch special that allows you to choose an appetizer, an entree, and comes with soup, salad, rice and a drink. $1 extra for white meat chicken. $1.50 extra for brown or fried rice. Also, we ordered a separate order... More

It's one of the best tasting Pattay in the SGV area. They have a pretty good deal with a buy two get one free drink, and they also have lunch specials which is nice.

If you've heard of Tuesday Tacos and enjoy the savings....Tuesday Pad Thai may be the thing for you. We go there on Tuesdays to get their special price for pad thai noodles. It is a good deal @ $3.99! Love it.

Heavy Thai atmosphere, and an extensive menu. I have only gotten the Pad Thai because that's what I like. But there is so much more. Parking is now resolved with the new adjacent city parking lot. Movie theater across the street in the center of town (at Main & Garfield). Just stop by after theater for a meal.
