Based on other posts we arrived as early as we could on a Saturday night to avoid a long wait, knowing we had a group of 7. Luckily we didn't have a long wait but this restaurant was hopping! Just a few servers juggling multiple tables but they did it with beautiful smiles and were very attentive. It took a... More

As a South East Asian who has been living in Columbia for years, I'd acknowledge Mai Thai as the best place in town for authentic Thai foods! I always took my family here every time we craves for Thai food. Small tip: come earlier during weekend or you will wait in a long line.

You would never know such good food was hiding in this out of the way strip mall. The service was efficient but not pushy. The decor was surprisingly nice (clean, fairly trendy). Pricing is very fair. And of course, the food is excellent. The coconut soup was fresh; the pad Thai was one of the best I have had lately.... More

I love Thai food, and I wasn't disappointed with Mai Thai. It is a small place in a strip mall but when you walk in you wouldn't know it. Excellent Mai Thai duck,Spring rolls and Coconut soup. I don't live in Columbia but if I did I would be a regular. When back up there I will go again. A... More

I continue to have really good meals at this restaurant. The fried eggplant/shrimp dish is my favorite and so good! Pad Thai is very good, too. If you go at prime dinner hours be prepared to wait but after you get the food..you'll be glad you waited!

After Thai Lotus closed, I desperately needed to find a new Thai restaurant. Mai Thai is actually better than Thai Lotus ever was because Mai Thai has consistency in its food and I love all of the servers. The server ladies (and occasionally 1 man) there are so sweet and friendly and they all work together as a team. I... More

We usually go there for lunch. The restaurant is probably the best Thai restaurant around Columbia sc. You need to get there early to be able to leave after 1:00 pm. We get there as early as we can during the weekdays, no matter how early we go we still have to wait at least 30-40 minutes for our food.... More
