May Kitchen + Bar Ratings and Reviews
In our wander around Vashon we asked the locals where to eat and they were unanimous that May was the place, and that you needed a reservation. We did a late dinner and it was lovely. The food was spicy and delicious, service with a smile and even the drinks were outstanding. Highly recommended!
Both our dishes had chicken as protein. We felt the portions of chicken were small. My kabocha/ chicken dish was quite heavy on the sauce. Including a small bowl of rice in the price of these entrees would make the cost more satisfying, adding to their value.
The place is a gem! The food is heaven in my mouth! It fills your tummy and your soul. The staff is wonderful and accommodating, they are all warm and kind people. We were surprised by oragamy and mind blowing magic that evening, which made the experience all the more special. Oh and do yourself a favor and get the fried bananas, you will not regret it!
I have yet to be disappointed in this gem across the bay. Well-worth the 20min ferry ride and quick run up the hill. The special appetizer of the night, little spare ribs with a vibrant and tangy red dipping sauce were a great treat. The green curry (a go-to in our group) was just as tasty as we remembered. From the fresh rolls to the coconut-fried banana dessert, we were on a high the whole time. Hold our table, we'll be back soon!
The best Thai restaurant I have been to. Amazing from the moment you enter the room. So much attention to detail, from the decor to the dishes they serve. The cocktails are unique and super tasty too, and the night we went there even was someone playing the piano which added to the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the place. The staff is by far the friendliest I have encountered in a very long time. A perfect location for a perfect meal.
We love our visits to May. Always a pleasure. The food is KILLER and very reasonably priced! We usually enjoy our server, Caleb, and his care and attention. New staff addition Abby was our server on this visit, she was charming, knowledgeable and caring. Top notch visit, as always. We love you, May Kitchen + Bar!!
It was a disappointing night. Date night for us on Valentine's day. Lights were turned down too low to read the menus or even find our seats. We ordered appetizers that never came. We ordered the two specials of the night for our entrees to share. Steak was really tough and hard to eat; and the trout was OK, but hard to see in the darkness. Dessert was a bust. Overall a disappointment for what we expected. This is our second poor meal at May's after a couple really delightful meals before then.
Beautiful decor, amazing food, excellent service. We came to celebrate and without the server or hostess knowing such, we were still treated wonderfully. Food is outstanding and flavorful. We had to change our reservation time and the hostess was really helpful to us. Thank you again!
Fabulous Thai cuisine tucked away on Vashon. The pad thai was mixed table side with an explanation of the flavors of the ingredients. Great idea and great taste! The short rib appetizer, coconut curry and pad thai dishes were sensational! Two thumbs up from this critic!
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!!
