“Hmmmm Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

We went to this restaurant after an afternoon matinee and we were duly impressed. My wife and I had been looking for a good thai restaurant ever since Chaing Mai closed in Portsmouth. The interior had been newly remodeled and was tastefully decorated. Our server was very helpful in explaining the menu and was quick with our drinks. We ordered 3 appetizers, one of which was a double tasting platter and our friends ordered pot stickers and crab ragoon. Really really very good. Our main courses were the crispy duck, a chicken stir fry in ginger sauce, chicken larb(?), and crispy pad thai. We shared as it was all so good and we wanted to taste it all. For desert we had a mango special with sticky rice. Sounds odd but it was delicious. Surprisingly unlike chinese food, it's 3 hours later and I'm still stuffed

“Absolutely the best Thai food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012

We started going to Mekhong Thai in Kennebunkport years ago, and were very pleased when they opened the restaurant is Wells. We also enjoy the Portland restaurant and are pleased to hear they are going to open another restaurant (The Best Thai) in Bath. If you love Thai food like we do, then one or all four of these restaurants should be on your to do/to go list. They are without a doubt the BEST Thai food restaurants around. We agree with Rocco that they make you feel like family back in Thailand. Try them and you'll love them...

“Real Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

You can eat there or take-out. We prefer to take out. We go for the crispy duck and it is simply fantastic. Always ask what are the veggies with it ... or you will have a surprise if you side order the steamed vegetables.

“The VERY BEST Thai Restaurant...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2012

We have lived all over the U.S. and the BEST Thai Restaurant anywhere is Mekhong Thai. We're very fortunate there are three Mekhong Thai Restaurants; Wells, Kennebunk and Portland, Maine. The same family owns all three but their menus are just slightly different (all great). We have friends who drive up from New York just to visit and eat at one of the Mekhong Tahi Restaurants. The food is superb, the atmosphere makes you feel you are really in Thailand and the waitstaff are friendly and make you feel like you are one of their family members. We recommend you try them one time and you'll be hooked. We love the eating experience and you will too.

“Best Thai food around!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2011

We love going up RT 1 to Wells and having dinner here, they have the best Thai food around. The staff is always friendly, and they always play quiet music in the background so the atmosphere is nice too if you decide to dine in. We'd recommend the Tom Kha Gai or Tom Yum soup (both are out of this world) or the satay chicken w/peanut sauce and the thai curry puffs which are absolutely delicious! We always share a plate of crispy pad thai since there's enough for 2 people. (Plus with the appetizers you get full fast!) And the Thai iced tea is a must!!! We love this place and they definitely do it right. It beats out anyone around the Seacoast NH area that's for sure.
