Great Thai Food and Great Service

We have been going here for sometime now. We go here a lot with work and have always had a food meal. I have read comments on here about the decor needs updating and it is not very posh which yes I can agree with but if I am honest it is just like sitting in a authentic restaurant in... read more

This is another of my regular places to eat in Macclesfield, the food is consistently great, the owner and chef are really lovely, weekly specials add to the already great menu, and it is great value for money. I prefer this to many of the Thai places in Manchester.

We have experience of Maliwan for many years now and the owner has always been quite a character. We will never go there again after my experince there earlier in the week. There was a group of 9 of us, we arrived at 8pm, we spent around £180. My starter was forgotten although the owner noted several times that I... More

I found Maliwan to be one of the best Thai restaurants I have visited in years. Friendly service and excellent, extremely tasty food whereas I found the food in Tom Yam in Poynton which Tom F of Macclesfield mentioned in his recent review of Maliwan to be rather insipid.

So let's get this out of the way, Yes Chilli Banana is a nicer restaurant but that doesn't mean it serves nicer food! We have been saying for years we wanted to try Maliwan as regular Thai food eaters but finally got round to it! So the Manager is a bit quirky so what he was a genuinely nice bloke... More

Great place with friendly, informal and helpful staff. Food is reasonably-priced and freshly made. Have had both takeaways and eaten in; both are to be recommended.

I love this restaurant. The food is always excellent and freshly cooked to our individual tastes. The Tom Yam chicken soup is particularly good. The restaurant has its own unique character and dining there is always an enjoyable experience looked after by the host Mark. The takeaway menu is equally good.

The restaurant doesn't look particularly luxurious from outside but the food is excellent. Good range especially when you can order from the takeaway menu. Food tends to be on the hot side but you can request it toned down. Good unique service, if you're ok with the quirkiness :)
