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 :)

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
