MAY KITCHEN + BAR
Overall great experience. My only suggestion would be the Massaman Curry to use stewed beef as the strips of beef were tough and grisly . The curry gravy in the Massaman was excellent.
Service was beyond perfection.
Some of the best Thai food I’ve ever had, beautiful presentation, excellent service
Dining early was quiet and great. The trout was amazing, and we loves the said appetizer. Reservations were a must, and so glad we had a great evening.
As always, the food and service was outstanding. Well worth a ferry ride.
Excellent food, service and ambience! One of my favorite restaurants on Vashon
Not just our favorite Thai restaurant, but our Favorite restaurant. The food is consistently superb and the entire staff delightfull.
I love this restaurant but was disappointed in the beef salad we had. It was so tough we could not eat it. I hope in the future they are more aware of the quality of ingredients they are serving.
Always a wonderful dining experience, with a lovely server, and beautiful presentation!
The service was perfect and the food was amazing. We had the spring rolls, green curry and pad see ew and we were both satiated and delighted. I cannot emphasize enough how good our server was. She was knowledgeable about the food and wine and was able to give thoughtful recommendations. Her timing was perfect. Great ambience, beautiful wooden decor.
As usual the food was amazing and service fantastic
Excellent food and service.
The food here is a superb treat and the service is very good. It typically fills up and you need a reservation. The only downside for me is that the wood seats are hard and uncomfortable, especially the high stool tables and bar stools. There are a few normal height tables with chairs that appear to offer adequate comfort but I have yet to sit at one. The high stool tables don't offer much space and the whole room feels a little crowded. However, you have probably never had Thai food as good. Seriously! It is by far worth a slight discomfort.
I had the pad see ew...great Smokey taste.....my wife had the fried trout......perfect.
Dinner on Saturday was delicious. The Tom Ka soup was comletely on point. Took me back to the beachside cafe in Thailand where I first tasted this soup. The other dishes were delicious with just the right spicy kick. I will be back again and again.
Everything about May's is excellent, highly recommend!
We love the food the people and the environment. We have introduced many of our friends zinc they all love it.
Cool ambience, excellent service, delicious authentic food.
Always a great experience. Wonderful food and service. The only problem this time was a gin and tonic with flat tonic, which was graciously changed. Thank you. Can’t wait to go again, especially as I left my umbrella there!
We enjoyed the food as usual, but were particularly enchanted by the First Friday magician.
May's is always amazing. Thomas was there performing amazing magic tricks and ambiance is always great there. The food was amazing, although not quite as good as usual. Not sure if it was because we are early or what. Will still go back again and again.
Always a wonderful food experience! We were concerned that a first Friday dinner reservation would impact, but it was lovely.
always nice, but some things have changed and we did not have the same great food as we have had in the past.
Amazing food, clever cocktails, great ambiance. The check in process could be better.
Love love love it. Amazing thai food and great ambience. A wonderful and unique experience and always awesome food.
I can't recommend May Kitchen & Bar highly enough. Everything was (and always is) outstanding. The servers and owners are gracious, the atmosphere is lovely, and the food is beautiful and delectable. May's is so popular that one must plan ahead to make a reservation. It would be great if you opened for lunch, at least on weekends!
Loved the food, loved sharing delicious dishes with friends. Will return.
The food is WONDERFUL. This is by far my favorite Thai restaurant. Even though May Kitchen earns five stars just from the quality of its food, the ambiance is awesome. I truly felt like I had stepped into a different world. I highly recommend it.
Party of 5 and all really enjoyed dinner, service and ambiance! The Phad Thai is the best I've had anywhere.
May’s Kitchen never disappoints. The ambiance is warm and comfortable, the food is wonderful, and the service is excellent!
Nice place with Thai charm and a modern twist . Reservations required. Only open for dinner time starting at 5pm. Cocktails were tasty. Appetizers were great. Dinner was pretty good, but not atypical of a good Thai restaurant. Live Pad Thai was a nice interactive dish mixed at your table with some special ingredients. Complementary birthday ice cream desert sampler was flavorful and unexpected. X
Good destination for visitors to Vashon Island. Street parking out front or a block or two away. The downtown stores all close at 6pm so make a day trip out of it. See the light house on Maury island with panorama views of Mt Rainer on a clear day. Check out the bike in the tree, stop at the general store across the street from the bike at the park and ride, get some coffee or beer, do some shopping downtown Vashon and eat dinner afterwards. Take the Fauntleroy ferry back to West Seattle after dinner for a sunset over the Olympic mountains.
Quality and Service continue to make MAY the only place to go for special celebratory dinner !
Everything is top notch here. Always enjoy the table side Phad Thai presentation. Service is excellent. Cocktails are creative and fabulous. And, the food! Yum!
Best Thai food you'll ever have. Ever.
always so helpful for us vegans with dishes we love that needed to be slightly tweaked for us! THANK YOU!
I don't know what's happened to May Kitchen, but the quality has really declined. I love the ambiance and the food, but the last few visits into May's have been really disappointing. There have been times when the wait staff behaved as if they could care less about the service we received. The quality of the dishes do not seem as flavorful or carefully prepared as they once were. Even the freshness of the ingredients doesn't seem up to par. It isn't bad, but just not as spectacular as it was. I don't mind paying the higher prices but only if they reflect the quality of the original May Kitchen!
I love May kitchen and I want it to return to the overall quality that it had when it first opened.
Dinner with kids and grandkids awesome place fir special occasion
Thai food....makes me think of a strip mall and pad thai noodles. May is SO much more. One of the best dining experiences I've ever had anywhere. Make a reservation. Highest recommendation I would give any restaurant.
Amazing food, beautiful surroundings and very kind and attentive staff. Love this gem tucked away on Vashon Island. Reservations are a must, however!
May's is my go to spot on Vashon. If I take guests to dinner, we always go to May's. Everyone loves it. This time I had my grand daughters and they had just flown in from Texas. They were very tired but hungry for Thai. May's staff helped them get fed quickly and well.
May's can get a bit loud and the tables are pretty close to each other but in general the ambiance and decor are fine. One tip--you almost always need a reservation.
I love Thai food, and I go to May probably once a month (I don't eat out a lot). They make the best dinner on Vashon Island.
