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.

“Happy moments!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is probably the best asian restaurant in Marrakesh.
A lovely little villa in the quite Hivernage, the place is lovely, with a special mention for the soft lighthning.
The food is excellent, nice wines choice and the prices are not too high.
The owner is very present so the service is good too.

If you get slightly bored of the same old Moroccan food then look no further for simple but delicious Thai food on a par with the best?service was a bit quick!wine came after the starter!setting great but Thai music would have made it better?overall though we had a terrific time here.

“Perfect choice for a Thai craving- but very poor service..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a beautiful restaurant and surprisingly sleek looking. I consider myself quite the connoisseur of Thai cuisine and this restaurant hit the nail on the head! Fantastic food and I thoroughly recommend it.
However 2 things are very annoying: it is expensive for quite small portions and on the night we visited the service was a joke. There were only 5 tables seated ( around 21:00 ) and with 3 waiters present you would think they would be very attentive. Not so, we had to wait a good 17 mins before even getting the menus and being able to order a drink. When our wine arrived ( very good by the way ) I had to get up and top it up myself because the waiter was busy moving cutlery around on the next (empty) table. All other guests had the same issue apart from 2 local men who obviously were very good friends with the staff. Not good enough and if the food hadn't been so satisfying we would have left.
On another note the food arrived within minutes of finally ordering so there's hope left!

“Expertly cooked food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had no reservation so had an inferior table even though there was plenty of availability in the better part of the restaurant all the time we were there. So, not a good start to the evening. Service was brisk, a little too much so, as we had no time to rest between courses.

The food, however, was good quality and well cooked although there was a very restricted choice for vegetarians, and we found the portions small.

Please don't order a Mojito unless you like a very small one with few ingredients!

“Not So Spicy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

As an Asian traveling in Africa, my expectations were high. Looking at the chili levels from their menu, I thought that those labeled with red chili will be really spicy but it wasn't. I did not feel a thing. I liked what I ate but it wasn't what I was expecting for. The restaurant's ambiance was really nice and they accepted us even without reservations and wearing slippers. People who come here seem to be very fancy. I wish they can play legit Thai music though.
