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.

The best spring rolls ever ! We had the tofu with basil, rice noodle, shaved carrot, lettuce, and the house peanut sauce- so good. Next pad Thai was nice succulent shrimp and chicken. About the pad Thai , something in the sauce was missing maybe the tamarind? We had mixed vegetables in a light sauce sadly there was no green... More

My friends and I come here often. The service is always friendly and timely. Their food is great. I highly recommend the sticky mango rice dessert. Not too sweet, but very satisfying. They also have a great $2 beer happy hour and live music.

Visited Thai on Main when traveling in Seal Beach. The restaurant was extremely well priced (Dinner for 2 with an appetizer for only $30) and just steps from the beach. There was also live music on a Wednesday night. My only suggestion... order a Thai Ice Tea immediately because even their mild dishes were extremely spicy for me and I'm... More

Any time I try a new Thai place I keep it simple for comparison sake. Pad Thai. It was very good here. A lot of veggies and not too saucy. Service was good. The place is quiet, not too busy. Parking is a challenge everywhere on main street.
