We have eaten Thai food up and down the New England coast from CT to Maine and this place has to rate near the top of over dozens of restaurants. A little gem of a place in the growing downtown scene in New Britain and we went on a Friday evening and business seemed brisk. The staff was very attentive... More

Authentic tasting Thai food. They customize the spice level on a scale of 1-5. I like it hot and their 3/4 is perfect for me. The service is always great and the value is definitely there.

Its a good place for a casual dinner. The menu has a lot of choices. We've had good service. Look for a Groupon or other certificate.

We were visiting my daughter and had a craving for Thai. We checked Trip Advisor and saw Mae Kong listed in downtown New Britain. I was a tad skeptical except I've never been steered wrong by TA. We found it easily. It's not a large space but not tiny either. The restaurant was clean, bright and cheery. We were immediately... More

We have Thai once a week and have tried most in the area. The food was better than most and on par with the best. Mae Kong will be our go to Thai restaurant

I found this restaurant online through a Groupon offer a couple of years ago. I didn't even know it existed. Wasn't I ever excited when it turned out to be a little gem right downtown not far from my house. The prices are reasonable and the portions are large. You definitely get your money's worth. After the many times I've... More
