Had lunch here with a friend. My first time here and it was a wonderful experience. We sat at the tables outside in the perfect spring weather. The spring rolls were very tasty and my chicken pad thai was delicious. The service could have been better but overall it was a great place to have lunch outside. Parking is a... More

We wandered around on King Street and with the kids they seem a bit restless. After looking at the menus and the different prices, we settled for this place. Granted, this was not as spicy as some of the other places we have had in Houston we were able to order the spicy tray of peppers to add more spice.... More

If you are lucky, you might get a seat outdoors or or a table near a window that offers a view of the river. The food is only OK and served without style. This restaurant can be very crowded with tourists, but I doubt locals come here often.

Late night dinner of delectable spring rolls, rice and shrimp, with a small outside seating area adjacent to the main dining room. Prices for the food is quite reasonable for this area. Service was fast, friendly and efficient . Our waitress was very patient .

Loved their food and very good service too. On a nice weather day, sitting outside we enjoyed their small tables on the pavement. A must go for good Thai food near waterfront in Alexandria.

I have been frequenting Mai Thai for years but have never written a review. The food here is consistently good. My favorite dish is the drunken noodles. The service is always very good as well. The only reason this restaurant does not get an excellent rating is its décor. The place is starting to look a bit old and worn.... More
