I go to Malai Thai anytime I want to eat some very good thai food. In my opinion they cook the best Tofu in Turku, but all the food here is amazing. Service is fast and people are very nice.

Originally we only chose Malai Thai because another place recommended to us was full, but what a piece of serendipity! Malai Thai is on a quiet street a few blocks from the city's main square, and well worth the walk. We all ordered different dishes and the food was uniformly excellent. Nothing was overpowering, rather each dish presented an exquisite... More

We have been to this restuartant once in the spring but believe it has new owners now. Nice tasty food served in a very clean and nicely authentic decorated restaurant.The service was very efficient, but found the atmosphere very lacking and it was cold inside.

This place has new owner since the end of August 2015. I can't say anything about the food during the previous owner but ate here now and food was delicious. Menu is very extensive, there are a lot of choices. They also have alcoholic beverages such as long drink, cider, beer, cognac, whisky etc. Lunch is served lunch time. Interior... More

I had late lunch here, I ordered some green curry which was really good. At the time (in between lunch and dinner) I was the only customer in the restaurant, so the service was very quick. The restaurant is very clean and tidy and nicely decorated.

Little walk from city centre and not that easy to notice, because they only have small signs on their window. Friendly waiter(owner?), but unfortunately she was working alone, so it took over 45mins to get our take away dinner, although there weren't that many customers. Place isn't that big and interior is what you can imagine for Thai restaurant. But... More

The food was very good and the ingredients were fresh. The service was a little bit slow and we waited for our portions for quite a long time because there was only one waitress working. My portion was a bit too small for me.

I had a take away dinner in that restaurant - the lady in the reception was very kind. The food was OK, tasty and spicy as I like it, but not well presented (it was a take away meal anyway so hard to really say if the food served in a plate looks like the same). I paid 25€ for... More

Had surprisingly good meal in this restaurant. The spring rolls were fresh and crispy, the main course (red curry chicken or red curry pork) also delicious. The service was friendly.
