I love this place!!! They have the best Chicken and Rice Soup, and their fajitas are excellent! Their menu has a big selection which includes all of the usual favorites, expertly prepared. Their salsa is excellent and not too hot. I also love their Chile Relleno. They have a great patio area for dining.
I took my dog to Ladera Ranch Animal Hospital for her annual immunizations. The reception area was very clean and welcoming. They were extremely friendly and took great care of my dog. She even came out wearing a cute little bandanna around her neck. They had a basket of "gift give-aways" that you could take that included doggie toothbrushes, dog treats, etc.
Kanpai is a good sushi restaurant. The service is always fast and friendly. The fish is always fresh. Their rolls are pretty basic, nothing too fancy. Very clean place.

If you are looking for something fun to do with your family, try the dolphin safari out of Dana Point Harbor. The catamaran ride is very smooth and we spotted a pod of dolphins within 30 minutes. It was so exciting! They swim right next to the boat and are so amazing to see up close and personal. They swam around our boat for quite some time. Great photo opportunities! On the ride back into the harbor, they serve home made brownies....great way to end a spectacular day!
Thai Smile is located in the charming River District in Rancho Mirage. The food is actually good, however the owner is rude and arogant. The service in general is very good and the ambiance is charming. The food is very tasty and the flavors are unique. If you don't have to deal with the owner, you will be sure to return!
