As others have gushed, the pad Thai is delicious! I also enjoyed the crab cakes and spare rib appetizers. We went on a Monday evening, and the place was quite dead. Be sure to leave room for ice cream next door!

May is an exceptional Thai restaurant in a lovely setting. The food is suberb, the menu creative and expansive, and the service is stellar. Don't miss the curried Kubota squash!

Both the food and the service were wonderful. The Pad Thai is prepared at your table with fresh banana leaves. It was absolutely delicious. The vegetable spring were very good as well as the Padang Curry. Would definitely go back!
