“Used to be good - but not since moving.”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Small menu, in attentive wait staff, very pricy, cold room. Duck rice roll entree was good, Bland pad Thai, good beef curry. Mai Ake chicken (main) too dry to eat - still came up on bill. Didn't bother with dessert. So disappointed, this place was great at old venue.

“Great meal. Terrific service.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Just returned from a wonderful lunch at Mai Ake on the waterfront at Salamanca. On arrival we were so graciously greeted at the front door and shown to our table overlooking the water. Our waiter was so helpful and courteous throughout our meal. We ordered the steamed fish and duck curry and both were flavorful and delicious. Lovely surroundings, beautiful food that is good value for money and excellent service.

“New Mai Ake Restaurant on Hobart Waterfront”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I tried the new Mai Ake restaurant on Hobart's Waterfront (old Blue Skies site). Service was good although there were not many diners so it should have been. Chicken sate entrée was barely warm. Main course was lacking flavour. It was quite expensive for what you get.

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This restaurant has to be one of the best kept secrets in Hobart. There are not many restaurants that greet you at the door, with a welcoming smile, have the same high quality in Constancy of food and service and treat you as a very welcome guest these days.
I just spent some quality time there with a group of friends for a sumptuous dinner. Some had banquet, while others chose to do their own thing and have individual meals. All the friends were in awe of the food quality and value for money.
Bookings are a must, as other people have found this pot of gold as well.
I really find it very difficult to believe that other reviewers could write anything negative about this restaurant. Although I have never had a takeaway from there, I have been a regular eat in diner there for quite some time and have never had any meal that wasn't spot on, nor have any of my friends for that matter.
If I was pushed to find anything that was a little off putting, it would be that it can be a little noisy if there are a few rowdy groups having partaken in a few drinks, but that can happen anywhere and I do believe that there are whispers of the restaurant moving down to the waterfront in Hobart. I wish them all the very best with the move.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

This used to be my favourite Thai place. It was always a little bit pricey but totally worth it - until now! The meat was cheap and the curry was bland. The chicken satay entree was a waste of money! No happy Mai Ake! Why did you have to change? You used to be onto a good thing...
