(Re)Discover Chattanooga - Thai Smile

Sometimes it's sad when I think of the places in Chattanooga that have been here for a while, but I've never been.  I'm not sure how long Thai Smile has been in business, but it's long enough that they don't have a website or Facebook account, but still do good business. They rely on plain, old fashioned word of mouth advertising, and repeat customers.

This is going to be a quick post, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet,

  • Location:  Downtown, Chattanooga. Thai Smiles is right downtown near the Aquarium.  There's a Republic Parking Lot adjacent to their building, so if you don't mind paying to park, it's easy.
  • Decor: I liked it.  It's not super fancy, but its authentic, simple, bright, clean, and open.
  • Food: Really Good.  I like Thai food, and you can order each dish to your own taste spice wise.  They've got a good variety to their menu, and the 'standard' favorites you expect and love from a Thai restaurant.
  • Value:  Stellar.  I love it when the food is good and affordable.  The lunch portions are large enough to split with someone, and still take food home.  Our table joked that you can eat off one plate for 4 days. And you can never complain when the bill for 2 people is right around $10.
  • Service:  Can't complain.  The lunch service was fast, our drinks were never empty, and the servers never hoovered. What more can you ask for.

  1. I like these posts, and it makes me want to visit Chattanooga! Our womens basketball team played in the NCAA tournament 3 years ago at UTC first and second rd.

    Hopefully you're still talking to me after picking against your teams, at least Clemson won!!

  2. Phats: I'm glad you like these posts. There's so much to do here, and I love to be able to share it. I'm not sure if we're hosting any of the Tournament this year (not going to lie, I don't follow much women's bb, other than the CU coach on twitter) but if y'all ever play down here again you have to make a road trip!! I'll forgive you for picking against Clemson, especially with the effect it's had :)


Sooooo, the spammers have finally discovered my blog. I'm not sure if that means I've 'made it', but it does mean that I have turned on comment moderation for my older posts. Don't worry though, I get the notifications quickly, and promise to read and publish anything that doesn't include random comments or suspicious links.
