Even if I didn't live on the Island I would come her often. My friends get tired of me telling them that it's one of the best Thai restaurants in the region. Once you step inside you are literally in a whole different world with the found wood panelled walls and the old family pictures. The staff is always attentive even when the place is slammed which it usually is on weekends.

My favorites are the crispy watercress appetizer with it's zingy sauce. The pad thai which is mixed table side, the whole trout which is cut up tableside, the larb and the yellow curry.

There are now a few excellent restaurants on the Island, but this one is still the standout.

What a wonderful evening! We went for my birthday because this is one of my favorite restaurants, and they did not disappoint. Topped off a delicious meal with a surprise - they dimmed the lights and brought out a dessert featuring 4 different Thai ice cream flavors and the staff sang me happy birthday. Such a wonderful place with the best Thai food around and really warm staff. Highly recommended!

We had a great time and a great meal when we went to May's for our anniversary recently. The staff were sweet and attentive, and we were impressed with the speed of service this time around. For two entrees, an appetizer, side of yummy red rice, and two Thai iced teas, we spent about $60 (before tipping). An excellent value for the quantity and quality of food and beverages! We were even gifted a dessert for our special occasion. Thank you to the staff at May's for helping us celebrate!

The food was outstanding and authentic. We loved the atmosphere with the authentic wooden interior.
Although being seated near the door was very drafty. The cocktails were amazing!

Everything good but charging $3 extra to put a very minuscule amount of veges in curry is just wrong.

As alway, Mays is the best place to dine on Vashon as well as most of the Puget Sound area. We are so fortunate to have her on Vashon! All of the food is fabulous, the waitstaff impeccable, and my only complaint is needing a reservation most nights to get in!

Great! Servers Kate and Samantha were fantastic - polite and attentive without being "in the way". Food was as good as always, especially love the Tom Ka soup. A nice evening, and thanks for the free "anniversary" dessert!

Lovely experience. You can tell the owner and the employees care about their customers’ experience . The yum phak boong (flash fried watercress) was delicious and the dipping sauce tangy sweet and spicy all-in-one -my favorite dish of the night ❤️

A typical Thai restaurant that doesn't really offer up anything unique. Food is better than average but not worth the upscaled prices. Not many competitors when it comes to Asian food on the island. But if you're visiting from the city, you'll most likely have had better.
