I found this place on MapQuest while on a business trip. I was completely surprised. The food was outstanding. I had the Tom Yum soup with shrimp. Very light and flavorful. The vegetables were just right (not overdone). The Thai egg rolls tasted great and not greasy. Chicken Pad Thai had an excellent flavor. There was a little hint of sweetness that some may not like. I loved the food. I will always come back when traveling through Columbia SC.

If I lived closer to this place, I'd eat here every week. I'm not kidding. I don't mind that it's crowded sometimes. I don't mind hanging out in the bakery section and pondering the delights behind the case. I'll wait all day for what very well might be some of the best food Thai food in the city.

The soup? Tom Yum. Oh yeah. Subtle, salty/sour broth with fresh veggies served crazy hot. Perfect meal starter.

Mai Thai rolls? Crisp, flavorful. These are not some throwaway appetizer that you might find at a traditional Chinese restaurant. These are delicious and made with care. Use the dipping sauce!

Hot Basil Chicken? I could swim in that sauce. Spicy but not too, packed with flavor, filled with tender chicken and perfectly cooked onions and bell peppers. Insanely good.

The service is friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is casual.

I can't wait to go back.

Mai Thai came highly recommended by several people and I finally had an opportunity to meet some friends there for lunch. It is small for its popularity so there was a wait to get seated, but service was prompt, friendly, and very helpful when we had questions. The food arrived in a timely fashion and was delicious. The decor inside was very pleasant and tasteful, and a contrast to the outdoor shopping strip exterior. Definitely going back.
