Always to best!! We live on Vashon and consider May's our go-to dining experience for celebrations, out-of-town guests, and our own quiet dinners. The service is always gracious and timely! The food is exquisite......we have ever eaten every time we are there!

Had heard good things about May's, so expectations were high. I wasn't disappointed, to the contrary. Best Thai food I've ever had and drinks delish. Service was attentive, pleasant and personable. Loved the ambience and decor, definitely not the last time I've dined at May's!!

This is our second visit after being blown away our first time. Our second visit didn't disappoint.
What wonderful food and service. From the warm greeting from the hostess to a real pro waiter,
Caleb, we couldn't have been happier.
The attention to detail is remarkable. A wonderful experience that I highly recommend!

It always exceeds our expectations: I take friends & family there when they visit and we regularly celebrate special events there. It is well known as THE best Thai restaurant in Seattle (even though it is located on Vashon Island). Look for the 2 elephants on the roof as there is no sign, but inside lies a magical Thai world of hospitality, fine food and service.

It's been on my Vashon bucket list - first time I had opportunity to fit in with its Wed-Sun schedule. Food was a unique twist on authentic Thai. Seated near piano player and front door so the noise level was too loud and busy for conversation. Excited to go again

Went to dinner with friends and family. A few of the dishes were way too spicy even when asked to reduce the spices for the dish.
But, overall would go to this restaurant again. Food, and ambiance is overall above average.

This has always been a favorite restaurant for special occasions. This past experience was mediocre at best. The dishes which we had enjoyed so much in the past, were oddly different. The waiter was seemingly inexperienced and inattentive; service was quite slow and the food arrived cold.

Outstanding and consistently excellent. We've tried about all of the menu items and have not ever been disappointed. Reservations are a must and it is truly a great experience. Even allowing for the ferry ride, it's only 30 mins from West Seattle!

This was an awesome experience. The food was amazing from presentation to flavor and portion size. Our server was exceptional. She was very knowlegable about the food, paced everything perfectly, and very pleasant. We will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to friends.

As always an absolutely delightful experience. From the friendly, welcoming & knowledgable service right through to the last (of too many) forkfuls. Every dish thoughtful, delicious and satisfying. Beautiful cocktail pairings give May a special edge up. Can't wait to come back.

Loved this olace. Exciting, different and apparently authentic Thai menu. Better than virtually oll of the Thai restaurants we've been to. Also fascinating cocktail menu including a number that sounded great even though we hadn't heard of some of the ingredients. We went for the Chile pepper infused Margaritas--spicy and good. The fried watercress appetizer was different and outstanding. Main courses were also excellent. As an added treat, we were treated to a personal magic show by their multitalented owner/host.

This is got to be the best restaurant on Vashon Island and the best Thai restaurant I've been to (and I've eaten all over the world). The place is so popular that service can be a bit slow. But the food is terrific, especially the pad thai with tofu (our favorite everywhere). Other dishes are great. We've been there many times and will continue to go there. Tnx/RSE

Eaten here many times. The food is marvelous. The service this time was a bit under par. Waiter seemed I'll prepared for the job. Couldn't hear him or understand him. Didn't relate the menu or options very well. Out of Thai ice tea and we were the first through the door upon opening. The piano music isn't appropriate. Makes it feel like just more noise. However, still the best Thai food in the Puget Sound area!!!!

Waitress was a little slow on drinks and forgot to put in one our dinner orders, but she took it off the tab and had a great personality. Food was FANTASTIC!! Have yet to experience anything 'mediocre' from May's!

The food was delicious as usual, and -- as usual, we received kind, attentive service. I had mentioned in my reservation that it was my daughter's birthday, and they indeed gently celebrated her. We love this place!
