I found this place on MapQuest while on a business trip. I was completely surprised. The food was outstanding. I had the Tom Yum soup with shrimp. Very light and flavorful. The vegetables were just right (not overdone). The Thai egg rolls tasted great and not greasy. Chicken Pad Thai had an excellent flavor. There was a little hint of... More

If I lived closer to this place, I'd eat here every week. I'm not kidding. I don't mind that it's crowded sometimes. I don't mind hanging out in the bakery section and pondering the delights behind the case. I'll wait all day for what very well might be some of the best food Thai food in the city. The soup?...

Mai Thai came highly recommended by several people and I finally had an opportunity to meet some friends there for lunch. It is small for its popularity so there was a wait to get seated, but service was prompt, friendly, and very helpful when we had questions. The food arrived in a timely fashion and was delicious. The decor inside... More

At first glance, my arriving food looked skimpy on the large plate, but it certainly was plenty of food. The Pad Thai had good flavor and no unwelcome (non-traditional) added ingredients. The lime wedge was there, and lots of my protein of choice, tofu. But based on the reviews before me and the snazzy, modern decor, I had hoped to... More

Do not let the restaurant's front fool you. It's on a smaller size with limited seating and low lighting. We visit this Asian Fusion restaurant and attached bakery often and have been very satisfied with our dining experience. There are rarely empty tables and often a short wait is required. It's worth it! I highly recommend this one to friends... More
