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 :)

When we finally ordered our food we did not... More

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 deserve to call itself a... 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
