Sitting high atop his delicate bed of kaffir lime leaves and red curry sauce, the Evil Jungle Prince cackles heartily at all who have never dined at Mai Thai. While it might not be the most authentic Thai joint around--serving dishes like barbecue spareribs, vegetarian black pepper steak and the aforementioned Evil Jungle Prince entree--Mai Thai adds a dash of urban fusion flair to the Treasure Valley's ethnic cuisine scene. With a sleek location in downtown Boise and one in Eagle, Mai Thai keeps it classy, while also offering an assortment of budget-friendly bento boxes and a killer happy hour with apps ranging from 99 cents to $3.95. We implore you, readers, don't let yourselves become the butt of the Evil Jungle Prince's jokes. We hear they can get kind of dirty.
