We called here on a busy Saturday night although the streets were empty the restaurant was quiet. We choose the two course special option chicken skewers with peanut sauce and Thai green curry and rice 2nd option spring roll with beef ....... and rice. Cannot fault the food it was fresh and full of flavour.
Waitress was a beautiful Thai girl and such a sweetie.
Very pleasant evening. Wish them success in building up their customers.

The woman befor Mai Thai restaurant is desperate like Jehova´s Witness in her attempt to drag into this restaurant. I felt sorry for her and ... I came in.
Yes I knew her interest for me was fake. she aksed me where I came from.
- Serbia.
- Serbia?? Never heard of.
- Balkan...
- Balkan?? No.
- Ex yugoslavia, you know Tito, Non-Alighen Movement, Nehru, Sukarno, Nasser...??

Then she rushed outside to lure some other tourists, ANd she succeeded at this.
And no she did not hear of Tito and Yougolavia either. Great disappointment.

Ok, let´s talk seriosly.
Hot soup with shrimps (only two shrimps, though), and pork in curry sauce with fried noodles. - that was my choixe, and it was good. Well, almoust very good.

They had Singha - Thai beer, but no any indigenous brandy.

The chef of the restaurant is old man with black hair. Family restaurant. The picture of Thailand´s royal couple is hung on the wall at the entrance of the restaurant.

She did not know of Tito?!?! I can´t believe.

Never mind, the place is warm and cute, it is piece of shabby thai place in the midlle of equaly shabby Amsterdam. This is the tourist area, all right, but eat there anyway, and leave a tip, please.

They are open til midnight.

I'm go, with four friends in this restaurant in Amsterdam, since the restaurantes in general closed soon, we not had a large choise! The restaurant MAI THAI is a small restaurant in the heart of Amsterdam. The specialty of this restaurant is the Thai cuisine. The food was all tasty, pepper, very flavour but acceptable. The staff is helpful, very welcoming althought the late hour.

There are so many restaurants in the Museum Quarter, which makes it difficult to judge which is a good one to go for. My wife wanted to try a Thai restaurant and Mai Thai had a good menu choice. Service was very good. Not that big a place which made it cosy. It was bitterly cold outside, so I would recommend that you sit in the middle of the restaurant. The Mai Thai mixed platter was excellent - better than the main courses which were very good.
Overall, we both enjoyed the meal.

Worst Thai Restaurant.. EVER. Either it's tasteless or it tasted like bamboo shoots ONLY!! Waiters were uber unfriendly, which explains why the restaurant is so empty! Don't even bother going in, not only they serve not authentic food, the quality of food is so horrible you can even cook it yourself!
