Great value

I have had the pleasure of eating take out twice, each time a different meal, but never disappointed. The restaurant is small so you may expect a wait on the weekend.

I can't believe Chick-fil-a is the number 1 restaurant in Florence on trip advisor...Mai Tai deserves the #1 spot far and away. Great food and service. The mango curry was excellent and the Thai fried rice. Great sushi as well. And I've spent my far share of time in both Thailand and Okinawa Japan so I think I know what... More

The restaurant was smaller than I expected. The wait staff was very nice. I was surprised at how slow was the service to take my order, receive food, etc. I will say that the wait was worth it...food was delicious! The restaurant was a little busy...but maybe the size of the dining area is also a reflection on the size... More

We went to Florence/Newport for a birthday trip. Had a taste for Thai & came across Mai Thai on a map search. After reading the reviews, I thought it was worth taking a chance. WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED! The menu has a lot to offer, with pictures, and the service was terrific. The food came fast and was expertly prepared.... More

We found Mai Thai on Trip Advisor and are totally amazed at how good it was. We are from CA where we get great Thai food and this little gem competes with the best if them. We had both Thai food and Sushi and they were both fabulous. The service was also impeccable.

This place is special. The service is always top notch, the people genuinly seem to care, and the food is out of this world. My favorite is the Pad Kee Mao and Mango Curry which I have never seen at any other Thai restaurants. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Thank Nicholas T
