A wonderful in or outdoor experience for drinks, Thai dishes and a relaxing atmosphere. We asked for level 1 spice and got it, no lies.

Located at an upscale mall, maile is easy to reach with excellent, free parking. The food was excellent, albeit spicer than the Thai places we frequent at home. We had calamari and cold tofu for appetizers both of which were excellent. I also ordered the Thai salad which was perfectly dressed and very tasty. The cold tofu came out last but it was a perfect accompaniment to the heat of my masaman curry. My husband had the garlic lime fish and loved it. Like every place else in Hawaii this meal broke the $100 barrier.

Food was excellent, but one main course came before the appetizer and the other after. I had a “white sangria “ that tasted like mango juice with no wine in it.

Never got to dine at this restaurant. Had reservations for 6:45 and after waiting 25 minutes still wasn’t seated. Apparently the group that was at the table that we were to be seated in did not want to leave. While it is hard to blame the front check in person, I do have a problem of a restaurant that requires a credit card hold for reservations and a $20 charge for a no show, but no penalties for the restaurant if they can’t seat us at our reserved time. If the restaurant is going to have a policy of only allowing 1.5 hrs to dine to free up tables, there should be a mechanism to enforce said policy or at the least compensate the party that is either waiting for their table if they leave when the wait is too long.

Love eating here. Make reservations for the patio, and get a good table that keeps you plugged into the outdoor scene while still physically separated by a short wall. Inside dining is great too, but we love outside. my favorite drunken noodles on the island; we drive 20 minutes to eat here, passing several closer places on the way.

The food was outstanding! The server missed some orders a few times but was very professional.

Seating was very tight especially when a person in a wheelchair needs room.

They were quite busy so the service was a little slow, but definitely worth the wait. Everything was absolutely delicious and we had a large party so we tried several different items. The yellow curry was good. The fresh rolls were delicious. They wonton soup broth tasted a little too fish saucy for my taste. But overall the food was very very very good

The food is always great at Maile Thai. However the wait help is always a hit or miss. Again, our visit this time was "ok". I felt like she forgot us in the beginning and it took a while for her to take our food order once she deposited our drinks. The other staff also would walk by not noticing we needed refills. My iced tea was only refilled at the end of our meal and I had to ask for a refill. Then he forgot to bring it back...I had to ask again and by that time we were paying and leaving. Even a water refill was lacking. we keep going back because the food is good, but I always have to cross my fingers, hoping I will get par level customer service.

Made reservations on open table for 2 people at 4:30pm. When we arrived at 4:25pm we were told they’re not opening until 5pm. I told the male employee that we made reservations on Open Table. He then said that their lunch service ran late so they’re starting dinner service late??!! WTF?! That’s the stupidest thing I’ve EVER heard. Was a frequent diner there but NOT ANYMORE. Good job losing a years-long customer who supported your restaurant for at least 5 years.

Great potential but not quite there yet. Ordered Angel Wings which are usually stuffed fried chicken wings. What we got here was deep fried chicken wings with dipping sauce but no stuffing at all. Garlic shrimp and basil pork were good. Of all the food, the basil pork was the best. Also had deep fried pork jerky which was also good. Overall fair Thai food but the kitchen needs to step it up.

We booked the dinner and also got confirmation text. However, the restaurant was closed on Tuesday. We were so disappointment and ruined our mood for celebrating the birthday. Is it open table issue or restaurant issue?

I ordered from the vegan menu. The tofu rolls were pretty bland and the rice wrapper was a bit thick in some areas. The vegan evil princess was really good and had a lovely amount of spice and richness. Good covid protocols from the restaurant staff.
Overall, very good food and experience and I'll go back.
