First the staff is very friendly and service was good, unfortunately the food was terrible very disappointing. I had a chicken cashew dinner it was dry and overdone, my wife had an alleged seafood dinner some of the shrimp were uncooked, my daughter in law left hers altogether and said it did not taste right. We ate here once before... More

My husband and I ate here at the end of April. The food was outstanding and if you want your food less spicy, they will accommodate you. The staff are friendly and efficient. All their entrees are very good and substantial. I can especially recommend their golden triangles and their sticky rice with mango

Full confession. I used Yelp to find this place. It was cold and rainy. I ordered two appetizers, tom yum soup and the chicken skewers. I walked back to my hotel and prepared to just eat regular food. What I was unprepared for was the flavor explosion that occurred. I know my Thai food. I would immerse myself into a... More

Mai Thai was recommended to us by our B&B owner and she was not exaggerating! We thoroughly enjoyed our food - the chicken salad and country beef appetizers were fresh and tasty and my husband's peppered beef was a delight. The highlight however was the Chili Crispy Duck - I am still dreaming about it!! The restaurant was clean but... More

We were referred to Mai Thai by friends and now couldn't agree any more. All 5 entrees we ordered were excellent. I would eat there again and would recommend to anyone looking for Thai food in Old town!

We tried this restraint on a whem, the service was great, the food amazing. The staff was super attentive. The best duck dish I have ever had and I grew up eating duck all the time. Prices were about what we expected, fun place to visit.

On a nice night, you can eat outdoors, which is nice since you can watch or listen whoever is performing on the corner of the Torpedo Factory across the street. The Thai food is quite good, regardless of what you order. I had the steamed dumpling appetizer and drunken noodle with pork dinner. Both were yummy. My only complaint here... More

We ducked in to get out of the cold and were pleasantly surprised with the good food! We each had something different and all of us enjoyed our meals. We all started with soup and each soup was good! I had an eggplant entree and ended it with Mango Sticky Rice! Uhm Uhm Good!
