My Thai is the Best Thai – I'm a happy regular customer. My Thai is the best Thai in Philly. I've tried several Thai restaurants in the city and they just don't compare. Service is usually good, the food is uniquely different, and portions are satisfying. Here's a tip: the best way to beat the crowd is to come in before 7:00.
A very good choice. – If you're looking for quality Thai food at a reasonable price, it's hard to go wrong at My Thai. Everything always tastes wonderfully fresh, the curries are perfect, and the portions quite satisfying. The only dishes I ever found disappointing were the vegetarian entrees on the menu (too bland for me), but you can ask for virtually any of the standard dishes to be prepared with tofu instead of meat, and I have a vegetarian friend who has always been happy doing that when we eat there.
The decor is pleasant and attractive. I would definitely recommend showing up early, however, as this is a very popular place in the neighborhood and really fills up by 7pm. I wish they were open for lunch as well, but I can understand that there probably isn't the business to support lunch service for them in this neighborhood.
Pleasant Dining Experience – I recently tried My Thai for the first time. I was surprised at how busy it was (on a Saturday night). We got a table pretty fast. I didn't know what to order but the friendly waitress recommended the chicken satay as an appetizer and the shrimp panang, a peanut curry, so I had that and it was great. My friend got the prix fixe special (a soup, appetizer, and entree) for less than $15. We had to wait a bit for our food because it was so busy but it was well worth the wait.
my thai is the best – My Thai has great authentic Thai food but they also have some interesting fusion dishes with a touch of American and Italian influences, like the Hawaiian Shrimp Pasta and Veal Chop. If you want authentic Thai food, go for a curry, stir-fry, or their famous Pad Thai-it's the best in town. They allow you to substitute vegetables and tofu for most meat dishes and they will make dishes as spicy or mild as you like it. Don't forget to order a soup! They are all delicious-but don't take my word for it!
Consistently good – I've been there around 5 times in the last two months. The service has always been good, and I've liked every dish I've ordered. And whenever I've ordered curry, I've always offered extra rice !!!
favorite thai ever – service is consistently excellent, staff treats you like a real guest in their home. if you specifically ask for something extra extra spicy they will not hold back, their XXX hot and sour shrimp soup is one of the spiciest dishes ive ever eaten and unbelievably addictive. this is my favorite overall restaurant of any type in the city. in fact we were recently in San Francisco (a great food town itself) and dreamed of getting back to My Thai the whole time!
Feels like Home – I went to My Thai last Friday and it was wonderful! The service was attentive, the atmosphere was comfortable and the food was delicious! Very reasonably priced too! I had the pork spring roll and the filet with the peppercorn sauce. I went with a big group so I got the chance to sample a little bit of everything. I was really impressed.....I'll definatley be back to dine at My Thai soon.
