Good place, good view.

Good, convenient, nice setting.Food is decent, not the best Thai ever. We have been there a few times. Nice outdoors in the summer.

Mai Thai serves good Thai food but one dish is exceptional. They offer a whole red snapper that is deep fried and coated with garlic and Thai Sweet Chillie sauce.the skin is savory and crispy, and meat is sweet and tender. It will have you picking up the bones and sucking the goodness out of them. It's a must for... More

good service and consistently tasty food, even when ordering take away. their cashew chicken is lightly battered and fried, and it has a sweet sauce. not your typical Thai style chicken w/cashews. my sis enjoys their pad thai and the pad see ew is also very good. enjoy!

Food from start to finish was mediocre at best... And that is being kind...over cooked vegetables + flavorless entrees...Specialty martinis were virtually alcohol free... There must be a better choice than here

I've dined here many times. Don't be dissuaded if it looks empty on the first floor of the restaurant. They mostly seat guests in the well-adorned upstairs. The cocktails are delicious and my husband and I haven't had a bad meal there once. There are other Thai options on King Street, but this is our favorite.

I have been looking for good Thai food and this place hit the spot. Yum! I ordered takeout but now the location is also in a great spot at the base of King St. Food was delivered hot and fresh, one order of fresh spring roll was a lot (2 cut in half) with lots of dipping sauce and peanuts... More

Excellent food, great ambiance, and in a great area. Many tourists hit this place but it is actually very good thai food, better than the one up the street on King Street. The other place has a more intimate setting, but the food is nowhere near as good.

We were eating here after the Alexandria fireworks so it was late and a bit crowded but the restaurant was not helping the young woman who was responsible for all the outside tables. While we enjoyed the outside action, I do wonder if the service would have been better inside. Our dinners were served before our appetizer was brought out... More

This restaurant is located on King St in Old Town Alexandria right across the street from the Torpedo Factory and old docks. Service and food were both good, but nothing special. It was a pleasant place to watch the people stroll by on a nice Sunday afternoon.
