Known For

Thai

Unlike many of Seattle's Thai restaurants that are overrun with curries and coconut milk, Mai Thaiku is a neighborhood favorite for its interesting take on Thai appetizers, salads, and satays. Go for the pickled freshwater crab and papaya salad, or the goong che nam pla (a Gulf prawn ceviche), which aren't complete without a side of sticky rice. There are Thai takes on classic cocktails inside this homey, wood-laden space, too, like a rum/lime/mint mojito spiked with yohimbe and ginseng, punnily known as a Yohito.
