“Always good and authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

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.

“Pretty happy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

i love to say that the food here is great! The view of the Potomac river is awesome especially during the evening. I love the green curry and Thai Tea. The only problem is sometimes there are too many people and you have to wait forever to get a table. But the turn over and service are pretty quick, it's the amount of people that go. I love this place in VA.

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

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

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!

“Great location, but better Thai elsewhere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

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.
