Unfortunately Thai Marlai closed down in Aug 2014 and there are no plans to reopen. The owner has decided to take this opportunity to retire.

I was excited 6-7 years ago to learn that the owner of Thai Marlai had opened the restaurant at exit 28. I ate there sometimes as much as 3-4 times a week. My wife finally refused to go there more than twice a week. Two...More
