I went with my husband and his friends’ family and it’s so joyful to visit this restaurant. The appetizers are yummy such as Chicken Satay, Fried Egg Tolls, Fried Coconut Shrimp. The foods are tasty and in a big portion. I’m Thai and I’m good with cooking Thai foods so I can say that it’s a good or bad after taste and yes the foods here are awesome. I asked the helpful waitress named Ms Jojo to suggest any spicy menu for Thai people like me and she told me to try Lad Nah Noodle. It’s not a spicy menu but if you add 2-3,teaspoons of roasted Thai chilies in it, you’ll get very hot and spicy dish haha. I’m glad this restaurant keeps a good standard of Thai taste. Its location is in downtown so it’s hard to find a parking lot in front of the restaurant so I suggest you to walk there and park your car at parking space nearby.

This small restaurant is right downtown Austin. Since we were planning a larger feast for Valentines evening, we wanted something on the light side for lunch. We found it. The lunch special included coconut milk soup. Usually, the luncheon soup in so many places is lightly seasoned broth, but this offering was chock full of chicken and fresh mushrooms. The entrees were the typical Thai offerings, and at $9 (including the soup) were a real bargain. My wife had the Pad Thai Cashew, with pork. I opted for the Thai Ginger, with scallops (a $2 supplement). Both were excellent, with the perfect sized serving of brown rice.

I was working at SXSW this March and ate at a different restaurant downtown near the Convention Center every day. I was surprised to find this little "hole in the wall" Thai restaurant, I have lived in Austin for 15 years and had never heard of it. It's small, it's unpretentious but it's REALLY good! Super authentic, reasonably priced, quick enough to get in and out for lunch on a busy day. If you like Thai food I recommend finding it and checking it out. One of the days I ate there it was cold outside and the soups were really warming. The servers can answer questions and make recommendations.

In an area chock full of steakhouses wife and I decided to do something different checked out this small Thai restaurant and it did not disappoint. Both the Beef Mussaman Curry my wife ordered Beef Pad Kee Mao I ordered were lovely to look at and loaded with flavor! The seasoning and ingredients were perfect. Too, the portion sizes were generous and prices were reasonable - if we’re back in ATX in the future we’ll gladly return to Mai Thai.

Outstanding Tai food! The curry was very spicy & delicious. Taste wasn’t sacrificed for heat. Service was quick & friendly. Highly recommend.

Hubby and I came here for dinner. We ordered a pot of Po Tak which is a seafooTomYum Soup. It had shrimps, mussels, squid, scallops, mushrooms, and all the other goodies all of which I like. This soup though is clear and not reddish in color like the atom Yum Soup we are used to, and the flavor is milder. Nevertheless we enjoyed it. I pot is just a perfect serving of soup for 2 people. I ordered the Pla Lard Prik which is a huge fried tilapia fish in a sweet and sour chili sauce. The fish was crispy fried to perfection, the way I like it, but I didn’t like the sauce. The red chili sauce was too thick for my taste and all I can taste was that sweet thickness and salt. I think the taste of the sauce didn’t have balance and harmony for me. While my husband ordered himself a Pad Ped with pork as his chosen meat. This dish is a stir fried rice dish with red and black peppers, krachai (a Thai aromatic herb), onion and chili in a special red curry sauce. My husband enjoyed his meal. Overall it was a good meal. Also remember they close for a break from 3:30pm-5pm. As for the ambience, I like the place a lot. It gives you a great ambience for a meal, it is clean (including the restroom), and the service is great! I recommend you try it.

Nice Thai place close to convention center. Pad Thai was better than average. Host was working his butt off. I noticed a ton of take out orders.

Easy dinner - made a reservation for 6pm on a Sunday. Did not need to (but better safe than sorry). Server was very attentive. I like spicy, often get Thai hot - their heat levels are a bit higher than my experience so maybe start one level lower than your usual. Portions were very generous, the substitutions I requested were accommodated graciously (I like more veggies, no rice). Tom yum soup was good, a little sweet. My chu-chi salmon was very good, would have liked a slightly crisper skin. Two at the table had tofu-basil (Pad Kra Prao), very happy with their choice. My son said his chicken satay was good. We all enjoyed our dinner. Would give a 4.5 if rating scale allowed.

Delicious authentic Thai food. Busiest with pick-up/ take-out orders, so seating was not a problem. Use apps to order your takeout or order on site to go (15 minute wait).

Food was great, busy but was able to get a table by just walking in. Only a 10 minute wait. 25-30 minute wait time for our food. Friendly staff. They could probably use more wait staff as too many tables for just 2 wait staff but overall good visit. Will visit again.

I’m picky about my Thai but this place was crazy good! We went for lunch and it measured up to Thai in bigger cities!

We walked in and got seated right away. The food was very good. You can opt for brown rice which was nice. The servers were very responsive.
