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

Went here for lunch and wasn't disappointed. They have really good lunch options and the price is great as well. All entrees come with soup and salad and rice if you order a non noodle dish. The Rainbow duck is delicious. If you have a taste for Thai food should give this place a try.

There was a strange smell that was bothersome as we sat down. We mentioned it to the server. She said she had sprayed the place with "glade," ...yuck. But, it kept emanating from the our table (strong incense smell). It was our napkins. They had soaked them in something stinky. I dug through my purse for paper napkins. The server... More

Good menu, a lot of different things to choose between. I only had the appetizer for meal, since it was big enough, and less than half of it with me home. So 11 dollar for tasty food and a meal the next day, is nice. We had very nice staff experience and good food, would go back here.

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
