I've never been a big fan of this 'restaurant,' preferring to refer to it as a cafe. The Chilli Banana is far superior, and just up the road from the Maliwan. With its paper table clothes, and drunk waitor who favours to sit on the tables as he impatiently takes your order, it just doesn't... read more

We go regularly and despite eating in several Thai restaurants in South & central Manchester, this is the best one we think in the locality. Great taste, fresh herbs, beautifully cooked and accompanied by good quality beer and wines.

I've been to the Malian several times and it's always been great food. The restaurant itself is pretty basic and cafe style but the staff are pleasant. This time I had tempura veg and friends had the Thai sausage , all really tasty. For mains we had red chicken curry , tamarind deep fried prawns and a ginger and soy... More

Fist time in this restaurant in Sunderland St, the food was very good,at I would say is an average price. the interior is clean but rather dated think 1970s. The guy who owns the place also serves he's a sought of pleasant Basil Faulty, but we will go back as we had an enjoyable and well fed evening

It must be said that this thai restaurant is in the rougher end of Macclesfield and if we hadn't heard it recommended by friends, we never would have ventured through the door but I'm really glad we did. Great place!The view out of the window is best avoided but the restaurant inside is clean and pleasant and the food was... More

I once went to Vienna, sat down in an Italian, ordered a curry - and it was rubbish. More fool me. So why should I go to Macclesfield, order prawn toast (a Chinese invention) in a Thai restaurant and expect it to be any better? Because I can and did - and it was splendid. Two of us were in...

I have eaten at Maliwan for years since it first opened, we use to go a lot and were never disappointed. But the last few years we have been having their take outs too which are also really good! The staff are lovely and Mark the host is great really friendly and welcoming. We have never been disappointed and will... More

Yes the place does need a facelift but that, for me, is it's charm. After eating in Thailand you know that the places with the best food are always the ones that look the roughest! The food is authentic with proper sticky rice - how it should be, all in a big lump. The currys are lovely and flavourful, I... More
