Respond to Review of Mai Thai Restaurant and Bar
Review: I had to write a review after reading the previous reviews. This place both Eagle and Boise, I mostly the visit Boise location, are amazing!There are hundreds of dishes that can be made both vegan or vegetarian!! I dont expect that the staff at most restaurants know what I need and how to prepare it for me just because I tell them I am a "vegan" of "vegetarian". Many people say, "I am vegetarian, oh, but I eat fish". Servers often dont know how to distinguish, trained properly or not and I feel it is my responsibilty to inform them of what I can or can not eat. Just like an allergy. I let them know what I need and ask if this can be made accordingly. Enough of that!=) I usually make reservations if going with more than 2 persons between the hours of 6pm and 8pm on most days. I found the staff to be very well trained given the size of the menu and found them to be even more helpfull. I asked my regular server a few questions and what he didnt know he asked. I do know that all the cooks are from Thailand and dont speak much english, so at one point my server even called for the owner to translate what I wanted, to the cooks! In short the service is amazing!! Five stars! While there can be a wait for food during these busy hours and especially on Fri/Sat. I found that when going on "off days" before or at the end of "rush hour", that the food will come out too fast almost. Not enough time to enjoy what a great atmosphire Mai Thai really is. Great music, great vibe, decor and probably the most diverse people watching in the Capitol area! In short, this place is a senses gold mine! And whilst Mai Thai is not strictly veg. and the menu is obviously not design to be, it is without question one of the tastiest veg. meals in town and my favorite place to eat in Boise!!!! Did I mention that after diner you walk outside and are located within walking distance of everything downtaoen has to offer?!
