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.

We went to Mai Thai again this past weekend and we're not disappointed. Everything we had was great from the drunken noodles to the curry chicken on spinach. The view is always nice too. We love this place and find ourselves there every time we have a taste for Thai.

I visited Old Town with a colleague for some shopping and dinner and found this treasure that was recommended by our concierge. Our server was Paul and I had the grilled shrimp as an appetizer - delicious...and the Ginger chicken stir-fry. My colleague had the Musaman curry. Both meals were delicious! We also had 3 drinks between us (Heineken and... More

This restaurant has good food! I ordered their special, which is, fried eggplant with ground chicken on top and it was super delicious! I also ordered and tasted for the first time a drink called Thai tiger and it was also delicious even though it had a red chili in it! Overall this is a very good restaurant but they... More

Located in the Old Town section of Alexandria, this flavorful restaurant has a lot to offer! Everything from the food to drinks along with ambiance are on point. The restaurant has two floors, the second being my favorite, offering a pretty view overlooking the water. I highly suggest 1) veggie spring rolls 2)House salad (amazing basil vinaigrette) 3) vegetable curry... More

This is my go - to Thai place in Old Town, Alexandria, at the bottom of King St. The menu has an extensive selection of appetizers, soups, entrees, and a great full bar. We had pad thai, chicken with basil, a nicely done curry dish and a spicy mango appetizer salad that was delightful and 'hot'. The restaurant has an... More
