The best part of the visit was the food. It was very tasty. The service was quite basic, but worked well. The restaurant is quite small, so there is not much privacy. The strange thing was that the restaurant did not serve any alcoholic beverages, not even beer. With a normal drink selection it would have received a better review.

I was a regular until they raised prices for some dishes. Good food, good flavours but overpriced for what you get. A stir fried rice with vegetables/no meat is 16€ and a small portion. The restaurant is really quiet that you would feel a bit strange talking above mouse level. Really nice man though, attentive and polite. They need to... More

Lovely little quiet place, no fuss or faff, just a really pleasant man and really tasty food. It was a refreshing change to experience simplicity when dining. I would definitely recommend it.

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
