Fantastic!

Was on a road trip, staying at a local hotel and decided to get takeout from this place. Wow! Really good Thai food (I wasn't expecting this in South Carolina). Pretty authentic dishes, cooked well. Everything seemed fresh and delicious. A welcome dinner after a long day on the road.

I'm a lover of Thai food, and I must say that place was worth the drive on a rainy day! Authentic Thai food cooked by Thais! Mmmmm! Great service and decor, too! I will visit again!

Two absolutely wonderful dishes! The first one "Soft Shell Crab". From the menu "Crispy soft shell crab with house garlic & black pepper sauce on a bed of broccoli, carrot,zucchini, and potato." My two (grown) daughters both raved about this dish. I tried a sample and agree. The second one "Rainbow Duck". Again, from the menu "Boneless crispy duck and... More

Fresh, flavorful, plentiful food, fixed as requested. Especially liked theThai Tea and the Mango and Sticky Rice Dessert Special - enough for two. We did not feel rushed and the servers were friendly and attentive.

The food is good but the service is awful. It's a shame because the community has supported this business but their attitude is terrible.

We go there often for lunch. Love the duck salad. Have taken many co workers there and any time we go out for lunch this is the place we all want to go too.

Visited twice now and enjoyed it very much both times. Just one notch below Excellent only because the service, though good, is not overwhelmingly engaging. Doesn't really impact the experience but simply worth noting. The menu is varied...one of those where it's hard to decide on one item. Started with the Golden Angels, which are cream cheese Won Ton's that... More

Being a vegetarian can be tricky in the south when you come to expect flavorful, delicious options when treating yourself to a dinner out. I'm a huge fan of Thai, Indian and Japanese hot pot when they are done right, and Mai Thai gets it right. My favorites off the menu are the Tofu Drunken Noodles (super tasty, perfect spice... More
