May Kitchen & Bar

Reviews:
A little weird, this place. Vashon has been horny for a Thai place for years, so there is much enthusiasm when one actually opened for business. Though it's obvious that a lot of effort went into the planning of May Thai, I cannot see myself eating there more than once every six months. The decor feels like an opium den. Heavy dark furniture, windows totally blacked out by designer curtains, crafty wood space dividers. All this would be far more appropriate in an office building in downtown Seattle. Vashon Island is a small town, and I like to look out a window, or have a sense of a window when I eat in a restaurant because I don't have a desire to block out my community. Besides, it is too darn dark half the year around here and no windows in January would be depressing. I guess the pretense would hold some if the food was really good. But it's not. Or rather it's hit or miss. The spring rolls were light, nicely presented and tasty. But the dipping sauce is presented in a tiny serving plate with a munchkin-sized spoon. Too awkward to enjoy to the fullest. I don't understand why they would scrimp on the sauce when you are paying so much money. The Thom Ka soup was OK, similar to anything decent in Seattle. Again, the serving presentation was awkward as the bowls were strangely shaped and the tureen too tall. Your thumbs are destined for getting hot and wet in the transfer process. The Phad Thai had a classy presentation on a platter with a banana flower on the side. The kind employee then mixes the ingredients on the platter at your table. This part is good. Unfortunately what results is a greasy, gloppy concoction that got me sick for hours later. Phad Thai should be lighter and looser with the textures of the ingredients remaining. And it should be 25% cheaper too. I think May Thai is worth an initial visit, if only because there are few decent places to eat at on Vashon and this one has some entertainment value. In the longer term, however, the food is too dense and unremarkable enough to not inspire a return visit for what I think will be a long while.
This is the best Thai food I've ever had, the food was great! The service, that was just amazing though. Everyone was so polite and were constantly checking on us. I think this is the kind of restaurant service that other restaurants should strive to become. Delightful staff, food and environment.
Beautiful atmosphere, cheerful service, good Thai food (for the most part.) Unfortunately, it's pricey ($16 for Pad Thai takeout.) They get my business on account of being the only Thai place on the island, but you could definitely do worse.

Better management has made this as dependable as any good subway. I rarely eat at any location because ( not to sound snobby or haughty) I know how to make a sandwich and it's less than five minutes from my house. Common sense directs me homeward. This place is clean, has friendly service, and maintains attention to quality. If I were a commuter, worked in town or I was a student I would probably eat 33% of my meals here for the work week. It's worth noting in trying economic times there isn't a lot of practical reason to hate something that's clean and inexpensive. As far as corporate shills go I don't think Subway pays substandard wages to it's distributors or contriutes to third world suffering. But it would be more of an Island experience to take those Sandwiches to the beach , free concert, or the Village Green and soak up the pleasant bits of our rock.
Like the guy said a few reviews down. You are only gonna get 8 olives no matter how nicely you ask.
Its Subway and these owners run it perfect. If you walk away with a bad meal you have no one to blame but yourself.
