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

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 can't believe the reviews I read for Maliwan. I have been coming here for about 6 years and always find the food very tasty. 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
