“Authentic”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

I went to the restaurant on Pike St and it was authentic. I ordered Tom Yum Goong, which is like a sweet and sour broth soup filled with seafood and it was good. And then i ordered pad see ew which is a flatten rice noodles cooked with shrimp soy sauce etc. That was pretty good too. Overall, the taste is pretty authentic. Too bad everything downtown closes early (9 ish i think).

“Surprisingly Good Food”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

We wandered the streets of Seattle trying to decide where to stop for lunch. Finally too famished to walk another step, we stumbled into Mae Phim. We hadn't had Thai food in awhile and were suddenly in the mood. We were a little hesitant walking in the door because the décor is pretty minimal and there weren't many patrons at the time.
There was no wait for seating mid-afternoon, nor was there any wait for our food. We perused the menu for about ten minutes, and our lunch arrived in about five. I ordered Phad Thai, which was prepared slightly different than I'm used to but was delicious. My dining partner ordered sweet and sour chicken. We shared the meals, and the S&S chicken was also wonderful.
We spent only $15 on two entrees plus hot tea. Service was pleasant, portions were large, and the food arrived hot and in short order. I'd eat here again.

“Quick and good Thai food.”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

No longer working in downtown Seattle, I really miss Mae Phim. It was really quick and served very good Thai lunch. Because the food moves so quickly, it is not the best Thai around, but very dependable. The one dish I've not been impressed with is the Phad Thai, which is too bad because this is such a staple for most Thai menus. But, the Panang Beef is great.

“Just like Thailand.”
Reviewed 10 February 2013

The food is cheap, fast, and - as best as I can recall - just like the street eatery's of Thailand. A simple laminated menu with pictures is all thats needed. The wait staff directs your food orders to the kitchen by smart phone. The cashew chicken was excellent. There is a reason this place was packed with locals!
