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.

I love Thai food and they have good food here. It has outdoor seating and good service. Very convenient King St. location close to the river.

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

We got a table outside and although the service was pretty good, the food was not. I ordered the "fresh" calamari which didn't taste fresh and it was over battered....ugh! My eggplant came and it was on the bottom of the plate which was topped with bits of chicken and basil leaves. Not too bad, but the sauce was not... More

The pad thai was delicious! Cute outdoor seating. They forgot about our reservation, so we waited awhile, but otherwise a good experience.

Visited Old Town with a couple of friends and decided to give Mai Thai a try. It's at the end of King Street close to the waterfront. We got a table upstairs by the windows so we had a good view of the river. We ordered a couple of their favorite dishes but I wasn't impressed with any of them,... More

While exploring Old Town yesterday, I stopped into Mai Thai to have a quick bite. There were plenty of staff milling around, but I wasn't greeted. I waited about 30 seconds when walked up and seated myself at the bar. Again, plenty of staff (talking to each other, eating at the end of the bar), but they were completely in... More

Visiting Old Town from NY and wanted to eat down by the water and enjoy a nice meal with family. We went on a busy Friday night but were immediately seated with 3 adults and one munchkin at a table upstairs by the window looking out over the water. Friendly service and the drinks and appetizers of fresh garden rolls... More

I brought a group from work for a holiday dinner in December 2013 (I realize I am late with my review). The food is delicious thai with the right amount a spice. They will adjust the heat level to your preference. I had the spicy string beans which were delicious, not soggy, with the right amount of heat (I like... More
