We returned to Mai Tai several times during our stay in Lamai. Food is very good, portions are generous. We'd recommend the spring rolls, chicken satay, green curry with pork, and various Thai noodle stir fry's. The menu is huge so everyone is sure to find something they like. The only tip I would give is not to go there... More

I will... More

Nice restaurant in the quite area of Ban Tai close to Mae Nam. Good range of traditional thai food all prepared and served in a simple and tasty way. Prices are cheap. We ordered 7 Pad Thai to take away for 650THB.

Really good traditional Thai food, and especially great desserts. And good value for the money. And they even changed one of the dishes to make sure it was vegan for my daughter.

I loved the food here. It was very cheap, and super tasty. There is an extensive Thai menu, the som tam was especially good, and I particularly enjoyed the mango and sticky rice.

We love Mai Tai. The restaurant is a family run business, what you see is what you get. Huge menu choice and it is worth taking the owners advice on what if fresh from the market that day. It gets busy with both tourists and locals and the staff are always smiling. looking forward to visiting on our next trip... More
