Excellent food, we went there before the theatre so we were pushed for time, didn't want to miss the show. The service was quick and very efficient, also so very friendly. The whole place was spotlessly clean, and the toilets you could have eaten off the floor. The main was nicely presented in a classic Thai style, this has to... More

Decided to give this place a try as we were looking for a quick pre theatre Dinner. Our first visit since it changed ownership and btw it is now called Silver Tree Thai Restaurant. Bit apprehensive having read about some of their teething problems, but we needn't have worried. First impressions were a friendly welcome and spotlessly clean, bright and... More

Large group of us visited Malee last night. Things started okay but quickly descended into farce. Only 2 members of staff serving, one being a friendly young lady and the other a very nice Thai lady. Unfortunately this really wasn't enough to deal with our group and the other customers. When the food was delivered the sticky rice wasn't cooked... More

Change of owners and a big improvement. Much more traditional and better value than before. They deserve to do well

We went as a family of four adults, having visited last year, and then it was a lovely experience. It is now calling itself the Silver Tree, and although I appreciate that they have only been there for a week, I cannot see how they are going to get anyone to go back. They used to have waitresses in beautiful... More

Hadn't eaten here before so tried it for a meal for two one night. Not many people in dining area but some nice decor which made it kind of authentic. Service was ok, quickly served but the whole meal was ruined by one of the members of staff just staring at us the whole time we were eating!! Food was... More

This is my favourite restaurant in barnstaple and my usual place to eat on a friday evening. The food is fantastic and very authentic. It has to be said I actually prefer a couple of dishes in the Malee to what I received recently in Thailand. I have to recommend the massaman and the Panang (or 34 and 36!!). The... More

Have to say that we were sadly disappointed with our experience here.. we had the 3 course special lunch menu, we asked the waiter that as we both didn't want puddings could we have 1 extra starter to share to which he said no, but no reduction in price for the 2 desserts we didn't have. Starters very small but... More

I was involved in the organisation of a charity evening on the 30th. Our group numbered such that every seat was taken and the Malee Thai team delivered. The food was delicious and delivered with smiles despite the heavy demand. Lovely decor which creates a charming ambiance.
