MaiYaj Asian Bistro
155 S 11th St

MaiYaj Asian Bistro has been described as a wonderful delight in the middle of Montague. This newer-to-Siskiyou restaurant offers authentic Southeast Asian comfort food. Specializing in Hmong, Thai, Lao and Vietnamese cuisines, they are known for their creative specials and use only the freshest ingredients. Owner and Chef Pom and wife MaiYang came to Siskiyou from NYC. Pom’s appearance on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay is only part of his impressive resume’. They pride themselves on serving dishes authentic to their families’ Asian cultures but also like to mix things up with fun themed specials like their Asian Cajun Seafood Boil which has been known to sell out!
