“Good, not great, food. Poor service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Unfortunately, not that great. Good location and ambience, but the food was only OK (my Ka Pow was not spicy at all, calamari was good but not great, etc). And the service was terrible. Appetizers brought out after main dish, drink orders forgot (and then delivered to the wrong table), very little follow up. Just really poor.

“Always good and authentic”
4 of 5 stars 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 stars 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.
