The staters were slightly above average but what really stood out was their curry. The Penang curry was very good and I very much recommend this as a main. We will be going again. The outside looks old and uninviting but the food is definitely worth getting past that if you can get a table.

Maliwan may not look that inviting to view from the street, but you know what they saw about judging books by their covers.

This is a lovely small restaurant with a great atmosphere, enhanced by the enthusiasm of the owner and the delicious fresh food.

It is always a real treat to eat here and is truly recommended.

Amazingly authentic food, well very similar to our experience in Thailand! Unprepossessing exterior belies the food within, but if your priority is the food you must pay a visit. Fish in tamarind and ginger fantastic.

We went to dine at Maliwan late on a Friday evening. There is only one room and itbwas was full of people enjoying themselves, in a lively atmosphere, all seemed to be enjoying their food. We chose easily from a manageable and attractive simple menu. Each course was perfect, very good quality Thai dishes, and plenty of it. The manager Mark makes time to chat to all his guests. We are certain to go again.

If you are looking for a swanky restaurant with stifled service, Maliwan is not for you. But if you are looking for quality food, a good atmosphere, and entertaining service, then you'll probably really like Maliwan.

The menu is simple, the food is fantastic, and the prices are sensible. I can't knock it.
