The food was good. Only one server so service was a little slow. It's an older restaurant and seemed pretty authentic. I visited on a warm night. Not sure if they have air conditioning.

Huge servings of totally freshly prepared ingredients, wonderful flavors, beats all other Thai restaurants in the valley by far. Just the dining room is a bit outdated and would need to be made a bit more welcoming and "warm". but if you care about what's in your plate, you will love Thai Palms, guaranteed. Service was very good too.

Some friends re with tcommended the place, so we went to find out that one has to point at the menu because it's too difficult to communicate with the servers. The place is kind of dark I did not feel comfortable. Our table was not clean i had to take some napkins and wipe it. But if you like that... More

The food was wonderful. We had the Mango Curry and it was refreshing on a hot summer evening. Will be going back there on my next vista to Desert Hot Springs.

This thai restaurant's food was pretty good, so my view of the food takes me back to the Big Island of Hawaii where the thai food restaurants were forced to vigorously compete for the small population; so to survive there, you had to be very good.

Lots of food for your money! The pad tai was fantastic, as were the spring rolls! They have a vast selection of authentic tai food. I wish I lived in the area because I would eat lunch there every day!
