Very good Thai food. Compares well with other local Thai restaurants. Can be a bit noisy on occasion, but not always.

If by Friday eating at the hotel becomes a chore and if you are in Alexandria this is the place to eat. Get the trolley (free) down King Street to the last stop right by the river. If the high tide is in you may have to get out a few stops earlier and walk. This is not your fancy... More

Dropped in on Tuesday this week Service good and fairly prompt Food excellent but a bit "mai phet", presumably for US taste-buds. portions excellent (As I find usual in the USA the combination of a starter and main was too much for me, so we doggy-bagged enough for a late snack) I did have to ask for the "nam pla",...

We enjoyed this restaurant in the heart of Old Towne Alexandria. The food and service are both excellent and the outside seating (in September) was lovely. FYI...my husband had the Cashew Chicken and I had the Drunken Noodles with Shrimp. :) Delicious and fresh! Highly recommended!

We got there at 10:40p on a Saturday. We were seated. We wanted drinks, waiter tells us to order food 1st before drinks since kitchen is closing.. Ok cool, I can do that! Ordered spring rolls and drunken noodles. Waiter comes around and asks if we can pay the check already... We remind him we want drinks and he reluctantly... More

We walked in for dinner on Sunday evening. Sitting inside (2nd floor) we experienced fast and nice service and good Thai food. Will return when back in town.

We stopped into Mai Thai for a fast lunch before a visit to the Torpedo Factory next door. Since we were all hungry, it fit the bill. The meals were average, it's hard to mess up Pad Thai (although it can happen!). The restaurant is rather large and cavernous. Every sound echoed through the place. We were there mid afternoon...

I've come here multiple times because I love Thai food, and this is one of my favorite places to get it. Their peppery garlic dish with chicken is the best! Their spring rolls are amazing. However, every time I come, the service is horrendous. I don't really get it. It's never busy here, but it always takes forever to order... More
