I'll just admit right up front that I've never even tried anything other than the Pad Thai but I return again and again for that delicious offering. Mai Thai has the best Pad Thai I've ever had anywhere and believe me, I have it a lot. I love that they will adjust the spice level to your personal preference. Be... More

They downgraded their service to be an eat-in carry-out. Thai food is very good. My choice 25 times. Esp the ginger chicken, but others swear by the curry.

The food is very good. I have a pretty high tolerance for spicy food and ordered my basil rice 'medium' spicy and it was way too hot for me. Like I couldn't taste anything else. Not that they didn't warn me (see photo) I'll go back but next time will order mild or mild 'plus'. The cashew chicken was very... More

Fair food, paper plates, stirfry noodles soupy not much flavor, asked for it medium spicy, server said would be to hot for me, so it came out not spicy at all and not very hot temperature wise, sweet sour soup not good. Go somewhere else. Counter service was friendly. Bus your own tables.

First of all, the food is authentic, outstanding, and tasteful. Second of all, the portion allocations are wonderful, providing for a second or third meal, depending on one's appetite. Third, you will want to come back again and again, whether for dining in or takeaway.

My friends shared $10.50 pad thai and thought it was good. I opted for the Tom YUM with coconut milk soup but felt the broth was too thin compared to soups I sampled in Thailand. I also didn't feel like there was much of an atmosphere for dining in and noticed most of the dinner business seemed to be carry... More

I was in the mood for some curry so I decided to check it out. Some of the best thai curry around. I haven't tried their other thai dishes but will check them out next time I am in a thai mood.

This is not a full service restaurant. Order at the counter, collect on the other side of the hooded stove, enjoy great Thai food, on paper plates, and bus your own table. The food is fresh, spicy, and delicious, very close to real Thai food (Lap needs more veggies with which to pick it up, and no faux crab sticks... More

If Thai is what you want to eat this place will satisfy. If you want ambiance, wait staff that expect tips, etc., this is not your place. I haven't met the owner yet, we just moved here, but as with all businesses, the complexion of the business reflects the person running the business. This is a no frills place. Again,... More
