Lunch buffet

Good food, fresh, all you can eat, fair price. Lunch buffet is a great place to come to eat lunch with your friends. Particularly nice is the all you can eat sushi, if that's your thing! It's mine, but there are only three or four kinds of sushi to choose from. This is a Thai restaurant, so... read more

Our First visit for lunch and we're hooked. Friendly & responsive service, relaxing atmosphere and most of all, an impressive & varied array of Thai delicacies as well as tasty sushi and miso soup. Asian wraps to fall off the bone perfectly spiced ribs, it was all delicious ! Asian fusion, suppose so; however the chef definitely hit the mark... More

We arrived as a group of nearly 15 persons. We could have been a waiters worth nightmare. Arriving at different times, wanting separate bills, and different dinners. The staff handled our group very professionally and remained positive throughout. The food arrived quickly after ordering and it was delicious. Some of my colleagues said it was some of the best food... More

If you crave thai and looking for a classy date night spot, this should be on your list. Though I have never been on a date here, I have seen plenty of happy couples enjoying a meal, for us it is a family favorite when we visit Boise. We have been coming here for years and have yet to be... More

This is a true favorite in Boise. I saw it being ranked around number 300 in Boise on TripAdvisor? It is in the top 10 for sure. Great food and great drinks. I have been coming monthly for 10+ year and I am not easy to please.

We had dinner at Mai Thai with some friends who live in Boise. It was actually a college game night but it turns out they actually are not that busy on game nights. We were seated in the back in a prompt manner, received recommendations on the menu and ordered some fun drinks from the bar (an old fashioned MaiTai... More

This place was awesome. First walked in and the decor was very nice. Then was greeted promptly and with courtesy. Then the server was very prompt and politely. I had the Lunch buffet and it was not very big but had some great items. The sushi was all rolls but had a few variety. The hot portion was pretty good... More

A very cute little restaurant in the heart of Boise. Our waiter was really friendly, welcoming and attentive. The food was delicious, especially loved the Papaya salad. There`s a small terrace with about four or so tables where you can enjoy your meal outside. The inside is neat as well with a really cool lamp. I`d eat here again anytime.

The green curry dish was out of this world. I can't even explain the deliciousness. I ate more than I should have, but it was worth it. My husband ordered the fish on fire. It was perfectly done. He even ate a couple of the baby bok choy. So worth it. This is a little gem In downtown Boise.
