“Favourite Thai in Helsinki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

Maithai is my favourite Thai restaurant in Helsinki. Located in Kamppi, it is small and with a cosy atmosphere. The owner is kind and efficient (not too talkative, perfect Finnist style). Food is good and tasty and at affordable price. Try the papaya salad as appetizer (quite spicy). They have also lunch menu at fixed price, but the choice is limited to 3 dishes. Highly reccomended to anyone looking for Thai food in Helsinki.

I regularly visit this place about once a month. The food is always fresh, authentic Thai. Service is friendly and efficient. Value is excellent for central Helsinki. highly recommended.

“An Okay Thai Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

I had been waiting for this visit for a long while, as Maithai has received many good reviews. We came pretty late on a Wednesday evening but had time to order before closing time. I tried the vegetables with the house satay sauce. It was otherwise pretty good, but the eggplant was poorly cooked. I wasn't exactly disappointed, it's just that I expected better. But I guess I might try this place again, as the meny is interesting.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

I visited this restaurant during a quiet afternoon hour; the food was great and served quickly. I had no complaints about the service. I did not aim to order wine or beer this time but usually I feel that it ought to be served in a high-level restaurant. The Tom Yam soup was excellently hot, and the main course (chicken with chili and rice) delicious. Additionally, the courses are not overpriced at all.

“No wine, and used to be better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

I used to be a die-hard fan of this restaurant, but recent visit was a bit disappointing, relatively speaking. Atmosphere was not so great, a bit stiff and too quiet (my hot date was the highlight hoha), and there was no wine, alcohol or foreign beers. Still the Tom Yum was consistent, though the fish a bit dry.
