Having lived in Thailand for several years, I'm pretty picky about Thai food. We've tried every Thai restaurant in Old Town and Mai Thai is definitely the best. They have a great location with lots of tables upstairs, downstairs and outside. Their dishes are always authentic, good and come out quickly. We've taken guests there several time. The location is fantastic -- right on the waterfront and across from the Trolley stop, which is good when we have guests who have trouble walking long distances. If you want Thai food, this is the place to go on King St.

Good Thai food! Perfect location near harbor. Friendly staff. We had the Cashew chicken, fried spring rolls and Mai Thai fried rice.

I have nothing but good things to say about the food and drinks that are served at this establishment. The prices are also very affordable in comparison to other places in the area. The service needs a little help...our waiter was not very proactive on getting us drinks(alcohol)...I'm sure the owner would not be happy with that!

The location is great, but there are so many better choices in Old Town to dine. For Thai food, go to Rice & Noodles on Franconia Road in Alexandria.

Disappointed we chose this out of dozens of restaurants. The service was very slow outside, the couple at the table next to us gave us sweetener for iced tea, not our waiter. The steamed dumpling appetizer- well I have had better from the freezer isle at the grocery store.
Only plus- prices were low, there was no wait on a Saturday night (should have known better).
