Authentic Thai food!! We had Padthai, fried rice with veg & chicken and the redcurry veg with coconut milk. All three dishes were awesome, especially in the freezing cold weather. Definitely good choice

Tom kha soup was tasty, the seafood salad so so. I was unpleasantly surprised by custom service, the waiter was not nice to me, I felt like I disturbing him too much, but with local visitors he was very smiling and friendly.

I have been a regular guest at Maithai for almost 20 years. I have an addiction for their food, and you can find me having lunch every day when I'm in Helsinki. I have been traveling all over the world very frequently, and eating in the top rated thai restaurants. Have still not found a place with tastier thai food... More

The food was good but not ungorgettable. I would have liked a bit more veggies on my portion, but I'm far from specialiast when it comes to thai-food. The waiter really nice and polite, the food came quickly. Dishes and silverwear quite worn-out as well as the decoration of this tiny symphatetic restaurant.

Maithai has been around for ages and not without a reason. They do the best Thai lunch in Helsinki - a starter soup and a number of excellent mains to choose from every day. And all this for the usual 10 or so euros (the standard lunch price in Helsinki). Never had dinner there but the lack of an alcohol... More

This restaurant has been around long time and I always return here when I feel like having Thai food. It is small and cozy and I like the fresh style and small details like you would have in Thailand. This is not one of those eat yourself beautiful places that focus more on quantity than quality. My favourites are Phänang... More

We prepare food at home nearly on daily basis. Therefore, during weekends it is nice for a change to eat out . Unfortunately the Finnish Mafia, trade unions, have made it difficult: Most of the restaurants are closed due to the excessive costs of the hired staff during weekends. Fortunately most etnic restaurants are open. This time we considered a... More

The price was too high compared to the quality of the food. We had pork in satay sauce and noodles with vegetables amd seafood, which were nothing special. The waiter on the other hand was friendly and the ambience nice.
