After you have seen Galeria Luis Sottil, come to this restaurant. Thai food is good here. Eating nicely cooked dumplings, papaya salads and chicken is what a number of clients advise.

The nice staff works hard, stays positive and makes this place great. Fabulous service is a strong point that plays a great role for the success of Mae Thai. Prices here are reported to be attractive. When inside, the ambiance is calm. Google users assigned the rating of 4.4 to this place.

This would be a 4 star based on the fact this is PDC but i had to keep a consistent rating. I thought things were going to be terrible after the starters - these were dire and clearly straight from the freezer (some wonton thing, a steamed dumpling thing, spring rolls, chichekn satay, a fried shrimp) and definitely needed at least a minute or two more of cooking.Things were rescued with the mains - green chicken curry and papaya salad were acceptable (but despite asking for "thai hot" this was western-level chilli exposure) but the fried grouper and basil stir fry with tofu (i think a pad prik sot if i remember correctly) were really quite good. The veg and the basil in the stir fry were really juicy and fresh and you could tell they had been kissing a searingly hot wok - just as it should be.Then dessert came and this really brought it down again. coconut flan so dense and lacking in any coconut flavour. sticky rice and mango made with bad quality sticky rice, ruining the lovely mango and warm coconut milk. If it had just been the coconut milk and a bowl of mango that would have actually been quite good.
Very romantic and well articulated restaurant close to Piola and 7-Eleven.. Nice place to bring a first date and have great conversations. Lots of fans to keep the guest cool but no AC except inside....few tables inside and many outside wirh small yellow lanterns.
Pretty good pad Thai
