My experience at Malia's is that it is dependably good food and service in a very pleasant atmosphere. The menu is varied enough to please most people and the place is usually busy at lunch and dinner so reservations are suggested. Since Aiken is not a very big place it is good to have a dependable go-to place, especially if... More

Arrived late to a business lunch and in see our party, proceeded to go to the table, expecting to be expected. The maitre'd took great offense at being circumvented and and proceeded to be VERY RUDE and made an obscene comment as he returned to his station. I assume that he had never heard of "customer service". As a consultant,... More

Food was cool and rather tasteless. Waiter was distracted and complained about his problems getting the meal. The place was noisy.

Since Malia's was rated #1, my buddy and I made reservations last Wednesday evening. He always has a beer or glass of wine with dinner. I had had a long hard day, so I looked at the beer list. OMG They had Tusker beer!!!! OMG Tusker is from Kenya East Africa. I had not had one since my daughter and... More

My friend and I went to Malia's two weeks ago for dinner. Although I have been there many times, this particular evening's meal was superb. I had the lamb chops and my friend had a pasta dish with lobster and scallops. The service was impeccable. Stop in soon.

Delicious Pork scallopini with a side salad ( great vinaigrette ) for my wife, vegetable risotto for me. Really good food, professional waitstaff, comfortable seating, pleasant contemporary ambiance. A great choice for lunch.

My daughter and I recently enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Malia's in Aiken. We were both very pleased with the subdued ambiance of the restaurant and the delicious curried chicken salad and shrimp skewers. For dessert, we couldn't resist the mocha chocolate crème brulee! We can't wait to go back this week! This is probably among the best, if not... More

Drove an hour to eat lunch at Malia's. Definitely worth the drive! Both my friend and I had the Tilapia Flatbread sandwich--we should've split it because it was definitely big enough to share. We shared the Raspberry Pie, which was a walk through heaven! The food is all very fresh and elegantly prepared. The service is impeccable.
