Funny little place, food was pretty good. However when we arrived, every single table but one was dirty, covered with dishes. The waitress said “sit where you want”, but all the dirty tables with food & dishes on them really grossed me out. There was...only one other diner there at the time, so it wasn’t like the waitress was busy, guess she just didn’t want to bus tables.More

Excellent! Ordered in and was delivered with style. Loved the spinach leaves with assorted condiments and Thai iced tea. The veggie pad Thai was plentiful! Couldn’t finish all of it. Will visit or order from again for sure.

On our first night in Portland on our latest visit we decided to give this SE Belmont Street Thai eatery a try for some takeout. We’d arrived late in the afternoon after driving 5.5 hours on the I5 and just wanted something hot, comforting and...affordable. We’ve been by Mai Thai countless times on previous stays but never bothered to check it out for some reason. The place isn’t big but it’s clean and well organized. We placed our order after getting some helpful advice from the young woman at the counter and after about 15 minutes it was bagged up and ready to go. It probably helped that we did go in on a slow night for this restaurant so I can’t comment on wait times during regular or peak hours. The portions are quite fair for the prices and the food was well prepared. We thought the green papaya salad was a surprise hit and very spicy, too! Our other dishes were just as good. We will make future visits to Mai Thai.More

I was served the incorrect dish and owner would not refund. Customers are rushed. I ordered chicken satay and was served Tofu. I told the waiter 3 times CHICKEN as his English was less than understandable. There are many Portland Thai restaurants where one is...served with respect and not distracted confusionMore

This is a very good Thai restaurant. Beautiful presentation. Some food was spicy. We ordered from today's specials. All were good. The Crispy Wontons were excellent. Nothing was greasy.

Smaller building, they have a parking lot for customers which was great. Outdoor patio area, nice environment, warm feeling, not super fancy but nice. Went here with my partner for dinner and was super happy to know there were a lot of vegan options! We...got the Massaman curry, coconut rice, and the Drunken Noodle dishes both with veggies and tofu. Medium spiciness. We love spicy! And Medium was just perfect for us. Hot enough but not too hot so you can still taste all the flavors. Be sure to let them know when you are ordering that you want everything to be vegan. They seemed to have a great understanding of what vegan means which was really helpful. The prices were really good too! We got all this food for about $20 Enough for both of us to be full and have a bit to take to go!More

Ate lunch here. Food was good and hot but I asked the wait staff 3 times about the dish I wanted to order and did it have lots of vegetables and was assured it did. I also asked for it between medium and hot on...a scale that included xhot and xxhot. There were over 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes in the bottom of my bowl when I finished. Also, the receipt was brought to the table while we were still eating. What's up with that. Restaurant was not even half full. Rounded up because the food is light and fresh but service needs improvement.More

This neighborhood gem has it all-excellent fresh food with all the wonderful Thai flavors done perfectly and beautifully presented, a quiet comfortable atmosphere and excellent and prompt service. Usually no wait for a table although with this quality there should be!

A recent trip to Portland had us searching out Thai restaurants. Mai Thai had several good reviews. It actually was our second choice but choice number one was closed and I'm glad it was. This was the best Thai food I have had! The flavors...were nicely blended and seasoned. The veggies cooked to perfection! We asked for "3" spice for hotness out of four. We enjoy the heat and this did not disappoint! Not too much and had kind of a cumulative effect. I can't wait to go back! I would eat this six nights a week if we were closer! The location is a bit out of the way but well worth it. I hope you give Mai Thai a try!More
