Sawasdee ka!

My name is May and this is my story.

I was born the youngest daughter to a farmer family with 7 children in Baan Som Sanuk, a north-eastern farmer village bordering the Mekong River. After having sold clothes in one of Bangkok’s wholesale markets at the age of 19, to pay for my younger brother’s education, I saw an opportunity to enter hospitality and started working my way up the career ladder. Ten years later and wiser I was somewhat tired of the global corporate standards, which often neglected personality, and hence wanted to start something of my own at the same quality, yet filled with LOVE and PASSION. 

In 2014 I left my corporate role and took to the streets, literally. I bought a street stall and started serving urban refined street food in a clean street ambiance at a food market in Pattaya, Thailand. The stall was doing so well, with cues for over an hour at times, allowing me to build a proper restaurant with a thatch roof.  That’s when I was approached to open restaurants for other investors and started first work on a franchise brand.

In 2017 MAYs Bali opened, followed by MAYs Factory and MAYs Dong Khoi in Saigon. In 2019 we opened MAYs Bangkok and were about to open MAYs Tulum in Mexico, MAYs Zagreb in Croatia and Thai Shack in South Korea. That never happened...

In 2022 we reopened MAYs Pattaya followed by MAYs Table in Colombo. Did we catch your interest to own a MAYs restaurant?


Inspired by traditional recipes, MAYs blends classic dishes with contemporary flavors.
