We ate at this restaurant since it was close to the Comfort Inn. The food was good as were the prices. The service however was not. We were seated and although not a busy as we were there, it took about 10 minutes for service. When our order was finally taken it was by the Dragon Lady herself. Not at all friendly and borderline aggressive in her demeanor. Felt like we were inconveniencing her. When she brought out the steam rice it was basically dropped on the table. I ordered Phad Si Ew but they brought out Phad Thai. Didnt feel like confronting the hostess and since I also like Phad Thai went ahead and started to eat it. It was a bit overcooked and clumpy but ok. A few minutes later the waitress returned and realized it was the wrong entre. We said it was ok since we already had started to eat. About 5 minutes later another waitress brought out the correct order. We tried to decline but she did not seem to understand. We thought perhaps since they had brought the incorrect entre we would not be charged for both, but not so. They charged us for Phad Si Ew and Phad Thai. No problem really since we ate both. Phad Si Ew was better. Ultimately it was the service that turned us off from this place, and the food was not good enough to make us overlook the service and want to return.

I live in L.A., and Mae Ploy is my favorite Thai place. Very tasty food, good portions, friendly, if sometimes slow service. Very reasonable prices. Always good. Been going there for 20 years.
