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.

Nice environment upstairs, with a view over the see. We ordered panang curry chicken and seafood in paradise. We served quickly but both meals were barely warm, and prawns and scallops on the shellfish plate was dry, had no flavour and the sauce was very plain. This was also one of their specialities. The panang curry was also boring, especially... More

Pleasant setting in Old Town. Service was prompt and pleasant. Food was average. I had a daily special of Sriracha Noodles which was mild but tasty. Prices good.

The food was really bad, and the cashew chicken the worse I've ever had. This is the kind of food you would expect to get at Panda Express.

It is easy to find on the water. Look for parking or a parking lot. Order all the soups. The food is typical, but severed elegantly. I love to go off hours because they can become very busy. Also, mid day you can get a window seat.

We ordered two easy staples of Thai cuisine - Pad Thai and Panang curry, The Pad Thai was soggy and way too sweet for my taste. In my last 6 trips throughout Thailand and cooking several Thai dishes during cooking classes in Bangkok, I have never had such an awful Pad Thai. The curry was just mediocre and didn't taste...

If you are love Thai food, Mai Thai is well worth the visit while you are in Alexandria. Honestly, it is some of the best Thai food that I have had in the states. I decided to have dinner here based on the reviews and I am so happy that I did. The service was excellent too!
