Description: The Maï Thaï has opened its doors just a stone’s throw from the Comptoir Darna, at the heart of the Hivernage region of Marrakech. Nestled within a magnificent villa, the exotic Asian atmosphere is immediately apparent as soon as you cross the threshold; you are instantly transported to far-off lands. Refined decor and an unusual garden provide this location with a truly authentic feel. The varied menu features the best of Asia and specially Thaï cuisine and is all made with the freshest of ingredients crafted by their talented chef. Service is discreet and attentive.

“great food, ok service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

After a week of enjoying Moroccan food we fancied something entirely different. The food at Mai-Thai is superb. Really light and fresh and beautifully presented. My only issue was being informed that our choice of wine (which was the cheapest one ) was unavailable. We chose the next one, that too was unavailable so our choice of wine started at 300 dirhams. They offered wine by the glass, remarkably the wine that we had originally asked for. A little confused how they could provide a glass and not a bottle we questioned the waiter. He disappeared and returned having found a bottle. Odd that.

“How Horrible service at this restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

First of all,I am Thai who lives in Marakech and have known this restaurant since they just've opened which is a bit more than 2 years.

I've been going to this rest for many times and every time something went wrong ...either food (some time just ok or most of the time no taste)...or...SERViCE. Oh it's never improved I mean very bad...I stop going there for a very longtime since last bad experience, then today a friend of mind convince me to go and have an other try or chance. I then agreed and called to make reservation for lunch at 11.45am. They accepted the booking with no hesitate, when actually the rest is open for service at 12.30pm. My friends and I show up at 11.45. We received very rude welcome and treat badly from staffs instead of apologized and till insisted that it was our fault not theirs.

So an other bad experience from this place and it's going to be the last for sure... No more chance for someone who don't respect their business and clients..especially when they are in the business like hospitality.....good luck for someone who would like to have own experience....

“Amazingly tastey food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

The food was great. The Tom Yam soup was probably the best I have had outside Thailand.
My wife and some friends are vegetarian, and they still managed to really enjoy their food!

Service was also very good, and they looked after us well.
