Cheap slop – I've tried this place half a dozen times now and have yet to be impressed. It's never been better than OK...but more often than not it's just greasy and bland. Worst phad thai I've ever had.
On each visit I've requested the spice level of 5 stars but 3/4 of the time did not receive anything even vaguely hot. Yesterday I politely made the request two times (the 2nd after it was obvious to me that the woman at the counter did not indicate the spice level to the cook). It still wasn't spicy in the least. This woman was rude and dismissive when I asked for a side of hot sauce. I'm always patient, polite, and too forgiving b/c I would like to patronize a family run business but I'm moving on. Yes they're fast and cheap, but this is directly reflected in their food.
Best luncheon spot – Over 60 Thai restaurants as ever tried,90% of them are good.Among them,some place
good taste but high price or poor service,some nice service but poor quality of food.
Mae Phim is everything perfect...Price,Speed and Friendly are all you can perceive there.
Homecoming ! – Right after arrived hotel yesterday.To be honested,my husband and I had no time to take shower.
We're so hungry to catch Mae Phim before closing.We really enjoyed Pad-Kee-Mao,Pad Thai,
Asparagus Shrimp and Yellow Curry Soup.We're so happy like homecoimg after 2 years moved to
New York,this place never changed in taste and it's unbeleivable in price.We will try lunch & dinner only here for a week.
Comment by Divo Taster – I'm so-called " Divo Taster " : I've tried among the best thai foods in Seattle in region from Tacoma till Cascade.It's absolutely given two thumbs-up for this place.The best price and the best taste as far as I tried.I highly recommend them to extend more business,widely.
Mixed results – Since Mae Phim doesn't have a feedback section on their website (yes, they have a website where you can place online orders) - I'll share my feedback with all of you. When Mae Phim is great, it's a delicious cheap lunch, and when they're "off" it's a sad dissapointment. My faves are cashew chicken & veggie curry. Their soups are also tasty. Whatever you do, stay away from the pad thai - it's the worst I've ever had. I ordered it the first time I ate there (I ususally consider pad thai to be a good measure of a thai restarant), and I just about never returned due to the noodles with ketchup taste. But it's so convenient! On a dissapointing day you might get mushy rice, oily, flavorless, overly salted food, with an overabundance of sharp undercooked onions. A bad day can curb any Phim craving real quick, and put me back on hiatus. Eventually though, memories of the delicious dishes and savory smells usually lure me back, after all it's close & it's cheap.
Excellent food! – Amazing, flavorful, and aromatic dishes. My personal favorite is the curry noodle soup without the fried onions with prawns, tofu or chicken (not a beef eater). It's the most amazing soup ever. I drive all the way from Issaquah every weekend for that. The restaurant is small, so if you have a party larger than 5 or so, I'd reccomend takeout. EVerything comes out super fast. It's maybe a 2 minute wait for a party of four to get all of their food. I've never dealt with a rude person at the register, maybe I go there on a day where she isn't working. I cannot beleive that every entree is only 5.50 for a whole lot of food. Really great for lunch, if you're broke, or just want amazing thai dishes. I highy reccomend this place.
Good Quick Food - Mean Lady – This place has great food! Some of the best Thai food I have ever tasted. I go about once a week on my lunch break. You must experience this place but watch out for the lady who rings you up when you get take out, she is always in a bad mood and is very rude. I would have given this a perfect score if it wasn't for her attitude problem. The other service is great though. Enjoy!
Happy Place – We all 7 persons,agree to vote this place as number one in Seattle.
Very cheap,very fast and tasty foods.Asparagus prawn is perfect,Panang chicken is Yum!
I love your foods and Thai songs there.
Best Thai in seattle – Awesome lunch thai restaurant. Every item on the menu is great. Authentic thai flavors and super speedy service.
perfect for downtown – I eat here on average about 3 days a week. The staff is always happy even when it is extremely busy and the service is superb. The food comes out fast and tastes very good. It is a little less than authentic thai food but what do you expect when it comes out in 2 minutes.
