Just minutes over the river in Kentucky, Mai Thai offers a variety of Thai dishes and sushi in the Northern Kentucky area. Located just off exit 180 of I-71/75, the restaurant is easy to find, too. Whether it's pad Thai or a California roll that you are after, the extensive menu at Mai Thai is sure to satisfy your craving. The menu is also available for take-out, so if you don't feel like making it a dine-in experience, call and place an order to go.
