My boyfriend and I go to Mai Thai a couple times a month and we love it because the food is excellent, but every single time we come we spend minutes talking about the terrible service. They only have 2 servers and although the place is small, it is crazy busy all the time. MAI THAI NEEDS TO EXPAND AND... More

Went for a nice lunch yesterday. The Mai Tai rolls and Pad Thai are very good. The service is nice and attentive.

The restaurant is not much to look at from the outside but is charming on the inside. The staff is friendly. The food is amazing and the service is amazing. You sometimes have to wait since it is not a very big restaurant but it is definitely worth the wait. One of our favorite places to go out to eat.... More

This was our first visit to Mai Thai and will be the first of many. My wife and I were there with another couple for an adult evening out without the kids. Pulling up to the restaurant there was a short line of people waiting to get into the restaurant (busy Saturday Evening). We waited about 20 minutes for a... More

My coworkers ordered lunch, take out and everyone enjoyed it! It took an hour from when we called in at 1:45 to be ready so I'm guessing takeout isn't their thing. The Pad Thai was good and we will go next time.

As always when I am in an unfamiliar city I rely on TripAdivsor to get me to the good spots to eat. Mai Thai was no exception... Service was good although a bit unorganized, food was good, and portions were adequate. Price was reasonable.... Would definitely eat here again!!

Thai food does not get more authentic than this in Columbia. The ladies that work there are all so kind and provide great service! I always get their coconut soup to start off with. If you don't like the sound of coconut soup, their Tom Yum soup is amazing too! I have also given up on trying any other restaurant's... More

Loved the food . Disliked that it is rather small so it fills up quickly as the food is very good. They have a great variety of dishes.

We've been to Mai Thai several times and still agree that it's the best Thai in Columbia. From the outside, this place looks totally sketch (strip mall, black-out tint on widows, random neon sign), but the inside is quite the opposite. The decor is very unexpected: peaceful, trendy, and very clean. It's a little cramped, but not overwhelmingly so. The... More

I agree with my friend Leon Bouknight, this is the best Thai food in Columbia. The restaurant is small, slightly understaffed, but has excellent food. I had the coconut soup with the tofu and then the Eggplant Shrimp Amazing. The amazing is the sweetish peanut sauce that is the same as the one used for the Pad Thai. You get... More
