This is one of my favorite restaurants ever. Everything is fantastic. There are large portions made with fresh ingredients and they will cook to order. I love the crispy green beans and wings for appetizers and the Pad Thai and Ginger Chicken for main course. It is BYOB which I like. And the service is amazing. We have celebrated many... More

We have eaten Thai food up and down the New England coast from CT to Maine and this place has to rate near the top of over dozens of restaurants. A little gem of a place in the growing downtown scene in New Britain and we went on a Friday evening and business seemed brisk. The staff was very attentive... More

Authentic tasting Thai food. They customize the spice level on a scale of 1-5. I like it hot and their 3/4 is perfect for me. The service is always great and the value is definitely there.

Its a good place for a casual dinner. The menu has a lot of choices. We've had good service. Look for a Groupon or other certificate.

We were visiting my daughter and had a craving for Thai. We checked Trip Advisor and saw Mae Kong listed in downtown New Britain. I was a tad skeptical except I've never been steered wrong by TA. We found it easily. It's not a large space but not tiny either. The restaurant was clean, bright and cheery. We were immediately... More
