A local gem....

This restaurant is family owned and the food is really quite good. Small number of tables, great for take out. Really good panang chicken, and pad thai. They will make the food thai spicey upon request...but be sure you really want it like that!! We love for take out and dining in.

I am so glad a friend told me about this restaurant. It's so small that you could easily miss it. Don't be put off by the small parking lot; there's public parking behind the restaurant and also street parking. I think they probably get a lot of business from college students walking from Wheaton College which is close by. It's... More

Amazing service. Truly HOT food. Most thai places, you ask for spicy and you get catsup hot....BORING! Not here! I asked for hot and I got hot, just the way I like it. No wimps here! Wheaton consists of college kids and attorneys. Neither of which deserve food and service this good. Great menu. Tiny though. Only seating for about... More

Have never eaten in the restaurant but have gotten take out many times. Food is absolutely delicious! Pad See Eew is awesome and so is Pad Thai. Almost everything we have tried has been wonderful. Prices are not bad and easy to get in and out for pick up. Highly recommend!

Small Thai restaurant with great tasting food and huge portions. All fresh ingredients made in open kitchen. Limited tables less than 10. But usually don't have to wait long. Every dish I get always tasty. Their hot is really hot.

I want great food when I go out to a restaurant and Mai Thai Cafe in Wheaton was great! Past reviews said the place was small and it looked that way when we walked up to it, but there were more tables in there than I expected. Prompt service and the surprise of a lunch deal until 2:30 pm that... More

Sadly, "Pop" passed away recently, but "Mom" and daughter have picked up the slack and the both the food and service remain excellent! Very few tables and it can get busy, but it's worth the wait. Limited menu but excellent food and attentive service. VERY reasonable prices and timely take out response time. No liquor available and I don't know... More

If you are looking for casual, quick, and somewhat exotic, this is perhaps the very best restaurant in Wheaton and the surrounding area. The food is just fantastic. Vegetables are very fresh and firm, the meat is tender and well-cooked, the rice is aromatic and sweet. My fiancée and I have very different tastes in food, but we both love... More

The green chicken curry is excellent. Served piping hot, full of flavor with fresh veggies. I ordered the mild and it had a good spicy kick. Generous portions. Carry out is fast.
