“Good food but service wasn't great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We ordered pork curry, red chicken curry and pad thai. The pad thai was delicious! I also ordered a Thai iced tea which was incredible! Highly recommend it. Unfortunately our waitress was very sulky and they seems understaffed as we waited a long time for our food and bill even though the restaurant wasn't packed.

“A enjoyable meal but nothing too impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Mai Thai serves nice food in a pleasant atmosphere. It is good value but not the place to go if you are looking for something special. That being said the service was friendly and i left absolutely stuffed.

“ALWAYS AN ENJOYABLE MEAL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

I have eaten here half a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The set lunch menu is very reasonable - good for a fairly light lunch on a shopping day out. On the only occasion I have eaten there in the evening, mid week, the restaurant was very busy with a good atmosphere.
Would recommend to lovers of Thai food.

“we left after being ignored for 20 minutes despite being seated and offered menus”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Absolutely appalling levels of service as a result of inadequate staff employed for the evening. Only 2 members of staff were employed to deal with a full restaurant and thriving takeaway service. We were greeted well on arrival and then left only to see other diners dealt with before us. The food is excellent as we have eaten there before and it is very popular with Thai nationals. We were in a minority that evening and the Thai speakers on the larger tables were served: we were not. We left and really the person in charge could not be bothered to even attempt to put things right. We went to the Thai Balcony and were served food that was even better than Mai Thai from what we remember. Mai Thai is for those who like to be ignored, snapped at in response to trying to place an order, and for those who enjoy watchning others eat whilst sweltering for want of a drink.
