Great carry out place. Always fast, super consistent. The potato curry is fantastic. Super reasonably priced and you get a lot of food.

I have been patronizing this local family-owned Thai carryout restaurant for more than 15 years. The food quality is very good, prices are reasonable and service is prompt. It has simple decor and is mostly carryout, so not really set up as a table service restaurant, but still my favorite one! Great food!

Very easy carryout, pretty reasonably priced. Ordered the pad sew and a side order of fried rice for only $2. This place is clearly family run, which I always appreciate. The pad sew was high quantity and good chicken,but too sweet for my liking. Fried rice is a great deal that you can't beat for $2. They have 4 or... More

I get take out here often. always good and they are always fine with substitutions. I've been a bunch of times for take out with orders for around 10 people and they're always fast and I can't remember them ever messing an order up.

I tried to keep an open mind after seeing how rough and drab the interior of this place looked, but sometimes the best food is served in a mediocre spot. I ordered the fried rice with veggies, which only had a bit of carrots, eggs with scallops. The veggies as dismal, not sure I would qualify as a small handful... More

We tried this place this evening for dinner carry out, after having been out of the area for a few years. Note there are two entrances -- one fronting the north side of Nine Mile Road and one from the large parking lot behind the restaurant (i.e. further north). GOOD: Solid (but not wide) Thai menu. We ordered a Thai... More

While you get a decent portion size, it's cheap ($7 - $8.50) and everything seems to be fresh, the one thing that lets it's down is how bland my meal was. We ordered a take out, the service was quick and everyone seemed pleasant enough the lack of flavor would be enough for me to think twice about returning unfortunately.

I went to May's Bangkok Express on the recommendation of the receptionist in my Optometrist's office. I had the chicken pad thai. The place is bare bones and more of a take out restaurant with disposable plates, utensils and cups. You order at the counter and pick the food up when it's ready. If you're looking for a fine dining... More

Always a terrific lunch. Fast and friendly. Big portions and reasonably priced for the quality if the food. I eat here as often as any other restaurant I go to and the food is always a big treat. For $7.00 you can't go wrong, and you get to use plastic silverware too!!

I drive past 4-5 other Thia restaurants when i go there. It's not fancy (plastic silverware) but the food is terrific. I typically get the Curry Chicken. Great food at a great price, what else do you need.
