Always a great meal at a reasonable price near the waterfront in Alexandria. The pad dishes are generous and delicious.

Mai Thai is a solid Old Town Thai food joint. Nothing spectacular or innovative to satisfy the foodies, but consistent. It's a fairly standard menu with a pretty good selection. Full bar, decent service. The location is convenient and the prices are fairly reasonable for Old Town.

My friends and I wanted to try a new place, and I love Thai food, so we read about Mai Thai and decided to give it a try. The restaurant has a casual but nice atmosphere, with large windows so you can see the river. Service was quick and efficient. There were several dishes on the menu that appealed to... More

We always tell the waitperson to be sure the food is served hot in temperature as this used to be a problem with the need to send it back for getting heated. Our last visits have seen this matter improve a lot. Their stir fry ginger dish is my favorite and my wife likes the chicken and vegetables. Glad they... More

An expansive menu that offers the full range of traditional Thai food along with some intriguing specials. Our choice for today's lunch included chicken with cashews, shrimp curry and Pad Thai along with veggies rolls and chicken satay. Very good food, but slow service. Choose a table by the windows on the second floor for a great view of the... More

We stopped here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised. We came in the early afternoon so there were not many customers, and the service was superb (so I cannot speak for how it is during peak hours). The food was excellent-with clean, fresh flavors. We absolutely will be back again!

Nice place to spend the evening for a dinner, close to the Potomac river, food is very tasty, Mojitos are really good! The only thing is a little too expensive! spend $100.00 for a dinner on a couple! (Dinner and 1 Mojito each person) it could be better.

The ambiance is nice. They have a nice little outdoor area that is near the water in Old Town (but not on the water with a view), so we stopped for a quick lunch since we live down the street. The service was fine but the food was like bad Chinese food. Dishes that should be hot were sweet and... More
