While out wandering around we decided to have Thai for lunch and Mali Thai was the first place we saw. Very glad we found this place the food was very tasty. My wife got the cashew chicken and I got phad Ginger and we shared. Both were flavorful and not too spicy. We will definitely come here again.

I often visit Thailand and love good Thai cuisine. The Mali Thai restaurant fulfills all I desire. Everything from the way in which the food is prepared to the way it is presented, makes it a very real Thai experience.

Our lunch at Mali Thai was very pleasant. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and immediately seated. A delicious cup of hot soup was delivered right away along with a glass of ice water, neither of which we had to ask the waitress to bring. Our waitress gave us plenty of time to peruse the menu and to look... More

My husband and I eat at Mali Thai when we have a craving for Thai food. Our favorite is the Chicken Cashew, and we end up sharing it because the portion is quite generous. It is very delicious and that's why we keep coming back. The service is good and we're usually served in a timely manner. The servers are... More

Excellent small Thai eatery. The food was excellent and delicious. I have eaten there on numerous occasions and would go back. Good prices for what you get.

I am fairly new to Thai food and have really enjoyed the choices at Mali Thai so far. I noticed some reviewers note that the service hasn't been great. I have had only positive experiences there - it also hasn't been extremely busy when I've gone so I don't know if that affects the level of service here. The servers... More

Food is good but the service is the worst. Asked if they could fix my order and twice I was told they don't do it that way. Sent it back and they still charged me. Won't be back with all the competition in town and places with great Thai they won't be in business long if they don't step up.

I always trust my sister's recommendation for Thai food when I am in the Seattle area, and once again, she recommended a winner! I tried the duck red curry, which I have never had anywhere before, and it was TO DIE FOR! The flavor was rich and flavorful and 3 stars was perfect for me. My dinner companions had the... More

This has been one of my "go to" places for Thai food in the Southcenter area. It is quick, nice atmosphere and good food. The chef special of the Thin noodle dish is even better than Phad Thai. I have always enjoyed it and the service is usually adequate though not great. Last night it was awful. They were feeling... More

Everyone loves Phad Thai, but there's is pretty great! Another dish that was amazing is the Pineapple Fried Rice, it has a taste of curry and with tender pork, yummmmm!
