MSG for You and Me – Almost everything is under $10 - big portions, huge menu. The Noodle Lord is a spicy stew that's every bit as exceptional as its name suggests. Do it.
DO NOT GO HERE! – What I ordered:
Crispy Spring Rolls
Pad Sei Ew
My egg rolls were very good and the sauce was great also, my Pad Thai was SO spicy that I could not eat it and had to order a bowl of rice to calm my mouth. My friend's pad sei ew was very good also.. Why I gave one star (I would give less)... TWO ROACHES CRAWLED ONTO OUR TABLE FROM THE WALL! The manager did not give us our money back and I ended up spending 14.85 on spicy food that was cooked next to bugs...
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY UNLESS YOU LIKE EATING WITH ROACHES.
Sucks – they have like 2 decent dishes at most....G4 is a piece of s**t just threw my order away was disgusting tofu was old, hard, gross, noodles tasted like crap. dont go there go get a pita instead!
Waitress Helped Herself to Tip – We generally have a good dining experience at Madam Mam's. A lot of times the food is awesome, but sometimes it's only okay. That's why I'm giving the 3 stars, because I think the food is worth a visit. However I'm writing this review because as far as I'm concerned a bad waitress has now stolen money from me, and I feel that deserves public comment.
The last time we went we had the worst wait staff ever. (Westgate location) I tried to flag down our waitress 3 times. We wanted to order dessert, but we were also out of beverages and with spicy food that's a no-no. I finally tried chasing her down only to have her disappear into the kitchen and not come out until someone else went to fetch her for me.
We were so irritated with the lack of service that we did not tip. We wrote 0 on the receipt and the total amount equal to the amount of the bill for the two of us. I was just balancing my check book and I see that she gave herself a $2 tip anyway.
We will be going in to complain, and I'm not sure I will ever go back to their establishment. If I don't get service then I'm not going to tip. If you don't like those rules then get a new job. The restaurant was not busy and there were plenty of people waiting tables. There is no excuse for her lack of service, and there is no excuse for her giving herself a tip that she didn't earn.
best thai food i've ever had – i go to madam mams every chance i get. the pad thai is amazing, though it is very spicy (get a 1 or 2 tops). also, the pad sea ew is too die for and i think it's my new favorite. the spring rolls taste awesome and go perfectly with the peanut sauce they come with. don't expect good service here, it's just not gonna happen, but the food more than makes up for it. oh, and they have the best tofu i've ever had for such a low price, even my meat loving friends like the tofu. and the prices are so low, even college students can afford to eat here at least once a week.
For all the people that like this place, just wait ...you'll change your mind – We used to go here (South location) all the time. I swear though, they don't give a cr*p about having good service or not. All I have to say is, you better know what you want - if you don't like it, too bad. First hand experience, if you find something inedible, they'll tell you - they can't help it if you ordered the wrong thing. My friend got something she swore was spoiled, ordered another dish and got charged for both. Had we known this ahead of time, we would have said 'forget it'. We tried to get it off the bill, they wouldn't budge. The food is decent, but I can't put up with the crappy attitude. Seriously - I'm not that hard to please either.
Disappointing – I ate here with a friend hoping to get some REALLY good Thai food... I was severely disappointed. This felt like just another crappy restaurant on the drag by campus who's food suffers because of high traffic. I've had some good Thai food from some really shotty looking restaurants, but this was not one of them.
I decided to venture away from the normal dish I get and took a suggestion from the waiter, the food smelled TERRIBLE and was NOT SPICY AT ALL when I asked for it to be. The taste was nothing like it had been described and the service wasn't great or friendly. I have heard that the original restaurant is supposed to be far better. I say try it and don't eat here unless you have no other choice.
Warning - Most Addictive Food Ever!! Beware – Okay, the atmosphere of the restaurant is nothing special at all. Kinda feels a little divey/dinerish. But don't judge this place until you put the food into your mouth. This is the best Thai food I have ever eaten. The flavors are absolutely amazing. I have had a lot of the items off the menu and the worst I can say about any of them is that they are jsut good. But there are a few of the items that I just sometimes find myself craving - the curry pork and the spring rolls especially. The good thing is that the food is priced so that I can fill my cravings whenever they happen - really affordable. If you are going to try the place for the 1st time, or if you are on a date, go to the South location across the street from the South Hyde Park Grill location - it is decorated a little nicer and you will avoid the hassels of trying to park on the drag. But be warned - you will become addicted to this stuff.
BEST THAI FOOD IN ATOWN! – My husband and I just got back from Thailand and this is THE only place that comes close to the local flavor. WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!! BYOB is a bonus!!! Try the panang chicken, and beef pad thai, YUM!!! We've never had a problem with the service and have been there nearly a dozen times now, maybe some people r too uptight...this is Austin people, u need 2 chill...
Just ok – I have had a lot of great thai food living in Chicago, but since coming to Austin, I've pretty much resigned myself to the fact there just isn't great thai food here, as Madam Mam's is supposedly as good as it gets. I've been there several times with groups of people, and it is just ok. The Pad Se Ew is always good, but that is not a very difficult dish to execute either. The last time I was there made me decide it was probably my last. My husband ordered a beef dish that was literally just a plate of inedible fatty gristle. I had a curry (panang I think) with beef. The beef was tough, and the broth was overly salty. No veggies in either dish. So between the two of us, we had some overly salted coconut milk, and plain rice. It seemed like such a waste of money. Grr.
