With quality service and friendly staff, Mai Thai Restaurant offers a variety of authentic Thai favorites, including vegetarian options, in the heart of Orange County. Mai Thai provides delicious dine-in, takeout and delivery options in Fountain Valley, CA. We had the opportunity to attend a media tasting with a Prix Fixe Menu last week, and we left with happy FULL bellies!
PRIX FIXE MENU
We had everything on their Prix Fix Menu except for the Romaine Wrap, Crab Fried Rice, and Pork Spare Ribs. There was so much food, we decided to skip a few items.
The Cream Cheese Wontons and Shrimp Rolls were so good! They both came with sweet and sour sauce, which paired up nicely with the crunchy wrappers and fillings. As for the skewers, we definitely preferred the Beef Satay over the Chicken. They were nice and tender, and the peanut sauce and pickled cucumbers were perfect.
This Tom Kah Gai soup was amazing. The base had a perfect blend of sweet tanginess that warmed our bellies. Not photographed was the Tom Yum Koong, which we packed up and took home because there was so much food! That was yummy too!
Our favorite salad was definitely the Papaya Salad. Nice crunch from the green beans, and the sauce was delicious. We added a lot more spice to it at the table, as we like it extra spicy.
RICE & ENTREES
We’ve been on a hunt for good Pad Thai, and we’ve found it! We are very specific when it comes to Pad Thai. The noodles have to be chewy and saucy (not soggy), and the sauce has to have a nice balance of tanginess and sweetness. Theirs was just right!
Although we were stuffed, we still made room for dessert! The Mango and Sticky Rice and Crispy Banana were delightful! A scoop of vanilla ice cream would’ve gone well with the Crispy Banana. We would’ve requested that if we weren’t so full.
Our dine-in experience was awesome. The food and service was amazing, and the owner, J, was super nice. You can tell they truly care about creating delicious experiences for all their customers. Our top favorites were the Beef Satay and Pad Thai. We’ll definitely be coming back for that combo! If you’re in the Fountain Valley area, stop by Mai Thai. We give them duo thumbs up, and they deliver locally too!
These menu items were complimentary; however, we retain full creative control over the content of this post, and our reviews are honest reflections coming straight from the belly!
