Recent Quotes from Diners at Mai Thai…

By Chef Vern Bauer, Executive Chef at St. Alphonsus Boise
The Boise area has long been starved for a consistent Sushi venue that does justice to other styles of preparations in the same ethnic context. How many Sushi places do anything authentically Japanese besides the sushi – and then do it really well?!Conversely Mai Thai is kind of the Ying to the Yang respectively, in regards to culinary ethnic diversity. This tremendous Thai food restaurant also comes with this radically good Sushi menu as a huge bonus.The connection between me at Saint Alphonus RMC and Billy at Mai Thai started long ago when we sat down and said, “In order for sustainable commerce to really prosper – we need to join forces!” and so a bond was formed that I’ve been fortunate to help foster over the last 4 years.
Our organizations have very parallel opinions in how we treat our customer.
• Consistently excel at what you do -
• Go above and beyond when ever possible and -
• At the very business core, carry yourself with great integrity.
This has been the real reason our collaboration has worked so well. The staff at Mai Thai is always ready willing and able to complete a technical order or fix an issue on the spot. There has never been a time when I’ve heard, “Let me find a manager that can help you…” The delivery personnel is polite, professional & swift making the exchange of product in our busy account easy & flawless.
So I haven’t even mentioned the food part yet and won’t waste another moment before doing so. The Sushi and packaged meal offerings are top notch. I run a scratch based operation – so I’m extra finicky about signing my name off on another product that wasn’t made in my facility.
The Sushi comes in so fresh and is packaged so beautifully that it rarely makes it through the day. The avocado on the green Goddess is cut with such precision that you would have thought a machine did it. Our guests have pushed us for more product on the weekends and consume a ton of Sushi from Mai Thai for caterings on a consistant basis. The product comes in with exacting precision that has established quite a following.
I’ve personally visited Mai Thai and have the utmost respect for what Billy and his team have accomplished. The Mai Thai kitchen was spotlessly clean, tidy, and sanitary. The cooks that come here to roll on our Exhibition Sushi day are professional and function with a granular sense of detail. I highly recommend the crew at Mai Thai Sushi as Boise’s best local Thai & Sushi restaurant concept. They have brought value to our customers as I’m confident sure they’ll do the same for you.
