It doesn't look much from the outside, but the food is very good and so it's the service. We ordered 3 curries, 2 rices and 1 noodles for 3 people and were fully satisfied. We left the waitress choose the curries and indicated level of spiciness, and they were spot on. Recommended!

Unlike many Asian restaurants which mix cuisines ,this one is quite purely Thai and proud of it. It has a fairly large menu but not space.Homely and warm and good service and an interesting Thai decor. The food has may choices and the chef is adaptable.I found Tom yum goong but also the more rare Tom Yam kai with chicken.... More

Really nice food, I usually get one of the curries served in a coconut and it's always fresh and tastes good, cocktail selection is good too. Staff are always friendly and accommodating, if a little slow when it's busy. Slightly on the expensive side but generally worth it, would recommend for any Thai lovers in Berlin!

This evening we had dinner at Mao Thai, it was a nice enough meal, tasty, fresh but not great. We had the pork ribs, chicken, cashew nut dish, clay pot duck curry and a beef red curry, I believe the duck curry was the best. Service was also sufficient, the young guy was lovely but the ladies seemed disinterested.

We enjoyed our meal here very much, the restaurant is situated on a wide street in a nice neighbourhood with several other restaurants around. It was a warm July evening and everyone was sitting outside, it was quite buzzy without being loud. We had 2 starters, 2 mains and drinks and the bill came to about Euro 50. Service was... More

The food is very good, if--compared to other Thai places in Berlin--a bit pricey. Service can be a bit slow and the not exactly the friendliest in the city either. A bit of an attitude, no apology for not serving me, merely: we didn't see you. But overall, good atmosphere and cozy. Good place to dine with friends when in... More

Staying in Prenzlauer Berg

Neighbourhood Profile
Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighbourhood has undergone a greater change than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays, thousands turn the park next to remnants of the wall into a playground for street artists, musicians, and flea market shoppers. This attracts young urban families who enjoy the balance of big city life and small-town comfort. Meanwhile, trendy, young, upper-class visitors from all over the world are attracted to the local high-end shops, cafés, and sophisticated bars and restaurants. The merits of this transformation are a favorite topic of debate around the city, but it makes for some of the best people-watching Berlin has to offer.
