Fans and regulars of Madam Mam's are nearly always borderline obsessed with the restaurant, but who can blame them? The food is divine and very affordable. All the authentic Thai homestyle dishes served in this very popular campus-area spot are "Mam"'s family recipes. Try the restorative Tom Kha, coconut soup with chicken, the definitive Thai Beef Salad, and the fiery, sinus-clearing Pad Cha Catfish, and you'll be hooked.
Appropriately, Pad Thai has pad thai on the menu, as well as traditional curries. A bright interior, large portions, and friendly service add up to make this a regular stop.
The cuisine is just as vibrant as the paper umbrella covered ceiling. Their Tom Kha always makes us feel better when we have a cold.
Friendly, attentive service and an affordable menu characterize this tiny neighborhood spot.
