The food, atmosphere and service are great. Of all the times I've visited I've never been disappointed.

We were referred to Mai Thai by friends and now couldn't agree any more. All 5 entrees we ordered were excellent. I would eat there again and would recommend to anyone looking for Thai food in Old town!

We tried this restraint on a whem, the service was great, the food amazing. The staff was super attentive. The best duck dish I have ever had and I grew up eating duck all the time. Prices were about what we expected, fun place to visit.

On a nice night, you can eat outdoors, which is nice since you can watch or listen whoever is performing on the corner of the Torpedo Factory across the street. The Thai food is quite good, regardless of what you order. I had the steamed dumpling appetizer and drunken noodle with pork dinner. Both were yummy. My only complaint here... More

We ducked in to get out of the cold and were pleasantly surprised with the good food! We each had something different and all of us enjoyed our meals. We all started with soup and each soup was good! I had an eggplant entree and ended it with Mango Sticky Rice! Uhm Uhm Good!

I judge Thai by: - Tom Yum xxx soup (where "xxx" is the meat: Gai is chicken, etc.) - Drunken noodles - Tom Ka xxx - And most importantly, is the sweet component under control. ALL of the East Coast Thai restaurants use far too much sugar.

We enjoyed this restaurant! We come from an area where Thai food is hard to find ! So it was a treat to get some great Thai food! The service was great. There were a couple of loud customers beside us, And the staff graciously apologized as soon as they left. This location is wonderful too ! Enjoyed our dinner

Beautiful view of the water and spicy Thai food. Can't go wrong with this place. My favorite is the Pad Thai and the Mai Thai drink. I like this branch better than the one in Dupont.
