You can get much more varieties of Thai food than elsewhere. It's real Thai food, the dishes are finely decorated and the atmosphere is very nice. There is a fine selection of Thai antiques so it's also interesting to sit at different tables. It's not always easy to get a table without booking, and this says more about their reputation.

We came to this restaurant for probably the fifth time and unfortunately we have seen the quality of this place decline. We (our Swiss friends, my wife and myself) had the Menu Saison and were looking forward to the fine, delicate Thai food we are used to. But nothing of that came to our table. Most of the dishes were... More

Great food, pretty good price (average at 35 chf per dish) and good atmosphere. You can request to be seated at the terrace across the street from the restaurant. Very much accessible by bus, closest stop is Rue du Port (bus 201). Will come back. They are closed on Mondays.

Excellent food. Must try when in Montreux. Sitting on terrace is being in paradise. Best THAI food in the whole region I have tried. Reminded me of Phuket 😀

Tried to walk in, only to find a bunch of empty tables that were reserved. The waitress said it's all booked up until day after tomorrow, and promptly sent me away saying it's all booked up. Who do they think they are? I find this restaurant very snobby.

Best Thai in the canton of Vaud. Amazing food full of Thai goodness. The owner is always seen walking around, which contributes to the consistency of the amazing quality. This place is always busy, and they have a nice terrace by the lake that's open during summer time!

After having a couple days of meat based heavy hotel meals (due to heavy rains) our dinner at Mai Thai was a delight. The appetizer Spring Rolls were large & delicious and the Cashew Chicken a nice balance of flavors. I thought the service was good but agree with other reviews the service staff seemed a bit stretched. That said... More

We did not reserve, so service staff quickly allocated us a table but not the best, while tables were not reserved and empty during the duration of our stay. Service staff looked harassed and I notice they did not smile to customers which is not Thai culture. They need to improve and conduct service with a smile to make guest... More

Servce was nice and I can say it is Thai fine dining restaurant instead of food. Food is not even thai taste.

Nice thai food but expensive. Try nueau pad prik. Really nice view - you can see all over montreux and the whole lake. Friendly staff.
