May Restaurant and Lounge, Seattle WA

Location: 1612 N 45th St, Seattle, WA 98103, USA

Our one friend recommended May Restaurant to us as a great Thai restaurant. Now Thai is one of my favorite foods so I am always looking for another great restaurant so we decided to check it out. We started with the fresh vegetable rolls. These tasted like they had mango in them which I am allergic to so I didn't really eat much of them, but they were tasty from what I did have.

Then we had the Golden Noodle - wide rice noodle, Thai broccoli, onions, red bell peppers, chopped green bean, bamboo shoot, mushrooms. This was alright. Not the best flavor really and not something I would order again, but it was just alright.

We also had the pumpkin curry - Pumpkin in yellow curry with fried tofu, bamboo shoots, red bell peppers, baby corn, and fresh sweet Thai basil. I was really excited for this as fresh pumpkin is delicious. This dish however...was horrible. The top was just a thick coat of oil - WAY too much and it was just...not good. There were a few large pieces of pumpkin that were still rock hard - even with a knife it was hard to cut it into pieces so you could actually eat it. Way undercooked and since that was the main was very disappointing. That coupled with the oil slick on top and the just not very good flavor of the curry itself and it was just a disaster. Just not good at all.

Overall - I would not recommend May's. It was just not good. I think their dish is the pad thai and we probably should have gotten that - then maybe we would have had one dish that was amazing.
