Staying near milford for four nights. I love Thai food, so we went here last evening. Very friendly and welcoming. I orderef an eggplant dish, Thai hot (#10). I could have had it a little hotter, but it was very tasty, indeed. Eggplant dishes can be a little greasy in Chinese and Thai restaurants, this one was, but I was prepared for that. I'd go back!

This is my go-to Thai restaurant for my lunch break at work. I always get the curry and I've had every kind, none of which have been disappointing. They have very affordable lunch specials. I usually get vegetable soup, white rice and curry for only $6.50. The services is usually very good. A couple times it's been slow but we had a different guy both those times who may no longer work there. Regardless, their food tastes amazing and I'm always looking forward to coming here.

First of all, I'm a highly critical person. I tend to write negative things, not positive ones. But I LOVE this place. My wife and I worked in restaurants combined over 20 years. It's really hard to find privately owned restaurants that we like. This is our favorite.

We drive all the way from Mason to go here at least twice per month. I've eaten Thai at about 20 or so restaurants including all of them in Cincinnati except Lemongrass and Teak Thai (??), both of which I'd like to try but they are even farther for us to drive.

The owner's here are always friendly, they welcome you and seat you themselves, family basically serves you and cooks for you too.

We've tried the Pad Thai, all the fried rices, Garlic Chicken, Garlic Green Beans and essentially a lot of the menu. What we come for, though, now more often than not is the Coconut Chicken Soup, Eggrolls and especially the Jungle Curry (Red Chicken Curry with coconut milk). We've also developed a real fondness for the Thai Spicy Beef. Both are so consistently excellent we have a hard time ordering anything else.

Service is friendly, food is reasonably priced and it's the best Thai by far that we've had in Cincinnati (and if we make it to the two above we've tried them all). Hands down it's not even close that these guys are much more tasty.

Their carryout business is strong, dining room so so. We'll certainly keep coming back.

Katherine and I went to May-Thai for lunch on this overcast summer day. The exterior of the restaurant isn't much to speak of. It looks like a little restaurant in a strip mall, and with all of the blinds closed, it looked like it might not even be open, except for the small neon Yuengling sign in the window.

The interior was painted in tasteful, bright colors and pleasant decorations were placed about the room. It was a cheery and clean dining area. The dining room felt fresh and modern. It was quiet and perfect for chatting, and we didn't feel rushed.

We were seated at a table in the first room and greeted by a very friendly and accommodating server. We both ordered water and placed our orders not long after that.

I ordered one of their lunch specials, the Pad Thai with Beef ($6.25), for which I chose a spicy level of 2 (out of 10), as I'm not really into a lot of spicy food. The entrée came with soup, so I selected the Vegetable Soup.

The Vegetable Soup had different vegetables floating in a clear broth, mostly broccoli, mushroom, little shavings of carrot and baby corn and some type of lettuce or cabbage. The soup was okay, and was served with thin crunchy noodles that could be added, which did improve the taste.

I had never had Pad Thai before, so I'm definitely not an expert, and don't have much to compare it against. I liked the meal and would definitely order it again. It didn't have a lot of flavor, but perhaps that is my own fault for not raising the level of spices in the dish when I ordered it. The noodles were somewhat chewy and the dish had a light, slightly sweet taste to the sauce. It looked like there was mostly bean sprouts, carrot, garlic chives and bits of egg in there with the beef and noodles. There were ground nuts on the top, which I assume to be peanuts. It was served with a lime wedge. After finishing the meal, my lips were tingling, so perhaps level 2 is all of the spice that I can handle at the present time. It was good and I look forward to comparing it with other Pad Thai experiences in the future.

Katherine ordered the Royal Noodles with chicken lunch special ($6.25), and selected the Egg Drop Soup. She commented that the Egg Drop Soup was just the way she likes it, with only egg, a thick broth, and spices. It was rich, golden, and velvety: perfect!

Katherine writes: "My royal noodles were spicy and filling. I ordered them with a 4 out of 10 spiciness, and that was just about right. The heat was balanced by a delightful sauce with just an edge of sweetness to it. The vegetables could have been just a touch more done, but they weren't so underdone as to be objectionable. There was plenty of meat with the noodles, too, so I felt like I definitely got my money's worth."

The complete lunch for the two of us, including tax and tip came to $15.31. On the whole, with the restful and friendly atmosphere, the delicious food, and the egg drop soup (which warrants its own separate category!), we will gladly eat here again and again.
