The restaurant interior is a little basic, but the food more that makes up for any deficit in the décor. The food was wonderful and served the best Pad Thai noodles I've ever had (and I've had a few Thai meals when out on business). If you like Thai food and in Macclesfield try out Maliwan.

I have been going to the restauraunt with guests periodicaly since it opened and have seen it grow in popularity over the years. I can cook Thai food myself and have been to Thailand and think that the food is... More

Initially the staff were polite however it feels like the outside and inside needs a makeover The prawn toasts were very greasy like they had been soaked in oil. Felt a bit uneasy that the waitress grabbed up the vegetable lotus flowers garnishing the starter with her hand and piled them on one plate..does this mean if they a aren't... More

The service from our waiter was genuinely friendly, however his reaction to our complaint that the sweet chilli fish was really expensive for what it actually was (4 small pieces of battered cod in a bath of bottled sweet chilli gloop) was that "no one's complained in 6 years". It really is a pretentious price to ask for that plate... More

Was really suprised by some of the bad reviews on here as we had a fantastic experience here. Yes the decor could be better and the service was organised chaos but the food was delicious. Great sized portions and not bland like chilli bananas effort at thai food. Would highly recommend

I regularly use the maliwan for a takeaway or to eat in, the service is very relaxed and friendly, everything is based around the food, the look of the restaurant from the outside is quite off putting it looks quite run down, it was years before I went in as it didn't appeal from the outside however once inside the...

The staff are very friendly and it has a relaxed and casual atmosphere. which makes it a very enjoyable place to eat. If you want posh and stuck up then this is not the place... More

Always fancied trying here, wish we hadn't, current reviews are right, whose the idiot who is pretending to be the host??? joke, the review about the rice is correct, sticky bowl of white crap, starters were tasty, but small, and the main, £11 for some strips of beef, with chopped up green veg and a watery chili sauce, poor food,...
