Not to be redundant but the meal I had (Thai Basil) was far superior to anything I would expect to find in Boise. It was a healthy, tasty, well-prepared and attractive dish. I highly recommend Mai Thai if you are looking for exceptional Thai food at a reasonable price.

We stumbled upon Mai Thai in our last visit to Boise and were BEYOND IMPRESSED! The food was spectacular, we shared all 3 dishes amongst ourselves and with 2 out of the 3 of our party having been to Thailand, we were surprised at how much the flavors took us right back! Ohh, and the gluten-free accommodation was spectacular! The... More

My two lady friends and I had a wonderful dinner last night at Mai Thai before going to our Broadway series performance at the Morrison Center. It made for such a nice start to a fun evening. All three of us loved what we ordered for dinner, and the manager even let us use a coupon that wasn't meant to... More

While I haven't been here in the evening, I've been several times for lunch, and all of the food has been excellent. Service must be both good and seamless because I don't even remember it. I've had both the buffet and ordered off the menu. It's always terrific.

This was my first time at this restaurant and it was a great experience. 12 of us had dinner in a back room and everybody liked their food, drinks and service.

I highly recommend the Saturday brunch. So many good Thai and Asian dishes to choose from, including Sushi. Dinner is great too. A lot of great dishes to choose from.

You will most likely find this downtown Asian food delight crowded and full of life. Reservations are recommended. When you are presented your menu the task will be to form your own dish as they offer the basics and then the choice of added ingredients. That is Thai Fusion food. You will probably enjoy sharing your chosen dish with others... More

The dishes here are not completely authentic Thai as they have food from other countries, but it is good. Our favorite is the lunch buffet and the variety of food offered will satisfy the hungriest diner. The sushi if okay, but if that's what you are after go to a Japanese sushi bar. There is also salad, soup, fresh fruit,... More

A Thai lunch buffet is something that I just could not pass up as I was walking by. And here it was not so bad although the emphasis on string beans was entirely overdone Sushi rolls, soup, salad, fruit were available on one side of the buffet and, on the other, the real entres. Phad Thai chicken, phad prik king,... More
