My Thai boasts of big portions at reasonable prices–you will be leaving full! Start with the fresh spring rolls (ask for the warm peanut sauce to dip them in– it is SO good) and the ginger stir fry with chicken. Their most popular dishes are their Papaya Salad, Tom Yum Laab and a whole lot more for the Best Thai food in Coachella Valley.

Order potstickers to taste the uniqueness of Thai flavor that you don’t find very often in this kind of places. My Thai is a great place you’ll love!

While Thai is one of the most prevalent vegan options in many towns–which is to say you probably have a hometown favorite–Pepper’s is still a must visit in Palm Springs. The service blends empathy (“You’ve been waiting too long, you’ll get the next table regardless of its size”) with curt efficiency (“Here’s a menu what do you want?”)… plus their (online) menu states with extreme confidence that they know what vegan means. The food extols the kitchen’s command of flavor–like these Fresh Summer Tofu Rolls. The rolls themselves are standard, even somewhat sloppy, but the sauce excels. The yellow pool of peanut sauce kick you in the face with fresh kaffir lime, the plum sauce really tastes like plums. • So, did I lick these plate clean… of course not, I’m not a 5 year old… I scrapped the sauce bowls with my fingers and sucked them clean like a 6 year old 😝. • . #ILoveSauce #VeganSummerRolls #VeganPalmSprings

For an awesome Best Thai food in Coachella Valley, go to Peppers Thai Cuisine. If you’re looking for Thai flavor with perfect heat then this is the place to go! Some of their bestsellers are the Pad See Ew and Green Papaya Salad. This place is also popular for veggie lovers for their Tofu soup and veggie dumplings.

The food here is phenomenal and it feels a very hole in the wall since it’s in a great location but not on the busiest part of the Palm Springs strip. Have the best ever “Fambam” lunch or dinner here in Peppers Thai Cuisine.

4. Le Basil

Le Basil is at the 4th spot of the Best Thai food in Coachella Valley because they’re also known for their restaurant’s great ambiance and chic decor but when it comes to food they have totally delicious Pad Thai, one of the best in town. You’ll definitely get hooked of their crisp Orange Chicken and Chicken Panang.

One of their highlight dishes is the Asian eggplant. Order it with chicken and for sure, you couldn’t get enough of it. It’s fresh, al dente, and melts well with the other vegetables and sauce. Just wow!

5. Blue Orchid Thai Bistro

73030 El Paseo, Ste 102

Palm Desert, California 92260

Last but not least of the Best Thai food in Coachella Valley. Blue Orchid Thai Bistro offers a variety of amazing lunch specials. Each one comes with either Tom Yum or Gai. Gai Satay appetizer is one of their best sellers (the cucumber sauce is so amazing!). Try their lemongrass chicken on the appetizer menu as it is to die for!

Blue Orchid is a go-to for very authentic Thai flavors with that welcoming family-owned restaurant feeling! They serve a wonderful variety of dishes that you will not find at other places.
