I wanted to like this restaurant but it was disappointing. The Pad See Ew was average in taste, seemed less in portion size, and slightly higher priced at $9. The soup that came with it was thick with cabbage and red pepper and had an unusual after-taste. We ordered tea (Japanese Green Tea) which was weak after a long steeping... More

The service is good and the location is convenient, but the Thai food did not measure up better Thai restaurants in the local area. Prices were on the high side.

Awesome food, quick service, and pleasant atmosphere. Outstanding basil chicken. Even with a good appetite, left overs to take home.

This is my go to place for Thai food. Parking is a little tight but I always phone in my order and pick up in 15 minutes. I always get the Pad Thai, just as a warning the spicy is very spicy. My kids love it as well.

I absolutely love Thai food, so I was thrilled to find Mai Thai! We didn't get there till well after the lunch crowd yet they were one of the few restaurants that had a good amount of customers still eating. We tried pad Thai, 3 curries and an order of spring rolls. EVERYTHING was delicious! Each curry and the pad... More

Food was lovingly prepared. We enjoy each visit. The downtown Wheaton location is great. We eat and go for a walk around the city.

Mai Thai is a small seater with carry out or dine in options. Run by a family, this place is always busy and consistently delicious. Word to the wise, always state your "hotness" preference. "Hot" is usually off the charts hot while "mild" still gives you a good deal of heat. Just about everything on the menu is delicious but... More

This is a tiny shop absolutely redolent with the flavors and spices of Thai cooking. We eat in as often as we take out, but just know you will be close to the other diners. It never feels too noisy to me. My kids love the Pad Thai, potstickers, and hot and sour soup that comes with the lunch special.... More

The Yum Nua is so fresh and delicious! The steak was juicy and very tender. The dishes can be very hot, so be careful! The Crab Rangoon was also very flavorful and they did not skimp on the stuffing! Everything was very fresh and our server was very pleasant!
