In town on business, went down to main street because it was reccomended. Thai sounded good. It is a very small place as all of the restaurants on maim street are, but we had no problems getting a table. You can also eat at the bar. There is live music, at least there was the night I was there. The... More

Thai on Main is a small place with good, authentic Thai food. Dishes are fresh and very tasty. You can get a variety of spiciness. Pad Thai is excellent as are the various curry dishes. Tom Yum Goong soup is excellent. (hot and spicy)

For an early lunch or Happy Hour, you can't go wrong. Parking is easy during the off hours and the service is prompt when there are fewer tables. We have tried about half the items on the menu and they're all wonderful. The sauces are layered with flavors. The prices are fair and the Happy Hour makes it a deal.

My brother and his wife took us to their favorite Thai restaurant. He ordered numerous items from the appetizer menu that were half price during happy hour. Each food item was presented well and individually tasty. Two additional selections from the main menu were equally pleasing. Wine and beer selections were varied and paired well. Will certainly recommend.

Thai on Main's green curry, spring roll, and mango sticky rice are amazing. Food and drink is always great here. However, service is hit or miss. I'm at the bar as 3 servers are all Facetiming someone loudly at the bar. Doesn't make me feel particularly important as a customer. One of the bartenders is also drinking a glass of... More

We came in here while visiting a cousin in Seal Beach as it was a short walk from his house. The venue is conveniently located on the main drag, and we wanted some Asian fare. Its not bad, but their service is prompt albeit the restaurant was empty at lunch time on a busy Memorial Day weekend. That may imply... More

Thai on Main has a great lunch special with many choices. After a good lunch we returned for dinner a couple of days later. Enjoyed each meal that we had at this clean and friendly place.

Mediocre food, less than stellar service, would not recommend. There are so many better places to find Thai food that actually has flavor and authenticity. It's more a touristy bar for those who don't know any better.
