This restaurant is tucked away on a small street, just a few blocks from a main road. It is right behind, almost adjacent to, the Pantip Suites Hotel. The food was excellent, the service friendly, and the clientel heavy with guests from the nearby hotel. The owner (either a Brit or an American?) seems to always be there, making sure everyone is happy! Although the customers were mostly tourists, the food was "real" local Thai. Food was nicely spiced, moderately priced, and quite frankly, very good. If you are at the hotel, you definitely should visit the Mali. I am not sure it is worth a long travel distance, as Bangkok is filled with good restaurants. Lastly, as always, travel safe!

Stumbled across this restaurant while we were going to another restaurant! We decided to try it one night and we were not disappointed in the least.

It's quirky inside, or you can sit outside but covered, which again is quirky.

The choice of dishes is very extensive. Both western and Thai food is available so there is something for everyone here.

The service was very efficient and food was served promptly. The food was plentiful and delicious and at a price that could be looked on as cheap!! Very affordable and well worth the money. We had 2 of the set menus..... Best be hungry if you order this as there are a lot of dishes served, we couldn't manage to finish all the food, which was a shame.

Would highly recommend.

When I first saw the long list of menu options, I thought it couldn't be done! I was wrong! We ordered some of the most exotic sounding dishes on the menu, and were delighted with the results! From the spicy wing bean salad, spicy seafood salad, the eggplant curry, and even the pad thai, all using very fresh ingredients, and all delicious. We sat in a private room, and felt like we were dining in a tree house. After our dinner we had the pleasure of meeting the owners, one a retired Michigander, the other from Thailand. Enjoyed a lovely chat with both of them. Not having to traverse the streets of Bangkok as it is a one minute walk from our hotel, Pantip Suites, was an added bonus!

Great... After eating in 5 star restaurants where I have encountered inefficient service & indifferent expensive food, Mali was a real find! The food was very tasty, fresh & brought quickly to our table with a smile. The decor is quirky & may not be as stylish as other larger hotel establishments in the Sathorn area but with such good food... Who cares! Well priced... 4 people...all big eaters...1100Baht.... Compare this to the night before at Saffron...4people...7000Baht.

This fabulous restaurant has been recommended by a friend who we met at a hotel. The food was delicious and suitable for foreigners like us. Good service and easy to get to. However, the food price is not cheap, be careful what you order.
