We had Pad Thai and Stir Fry Beef with rice a soda and one beer and it cost dong 440k which we thought was quite a lot for this type of food

Food was quite tasty but this was let down by staff service and general demeanour.

They were either gathered at the front door chatting with their backs to us x four of them or texting with back to us one of the guys or standing against the wall staring at us two or three of them, which was quite uncomfortable

This could be so much better with a little more staff attentiveness and training

We ended up here as it was raining and close to our hotel

A so so experience

I ate in this restaurant 20 minutes ago. I like Thai food and this is far from it at its best.

I had pork with garlic and chili which was okay but not as tasty as it sounds. As a side I had crab omelette. This was poor - bland with crab shell in every mouthful.

There has to be better Thai cuisine in HCMC than this.

Used to regularly visit and always enjoyed the food and overall atmosphere. On our last visit the price had gone up considerably and the food was definitely well below par. The quality of ingredients had been cheapened and tofu used to be added to thai veg curries but even the tofu was missing. Unimpressed and will not sadly be returning anytime soon.

As residents of Thailand and Thai speakers we feel we are well qualified to comment on the food at this restaurant. We had intended to eat at The Elephant or Koh Thai. They asked us to wait 30 minutes at the Elephant and Koh Thai was a bit far so we decided to find somewhere else to eat. We spotted Malee and thought we would give it a try. What a disaster! We got the last table which at the time we thought was fortunate. The restaurant was dingy, the staff disinterested and the food virtually uneatable. Coupled with that it was expensive. I ordered Massaman curry which consisted of one chicken thigh and mostly potato. My wife ordered Chicken Red curry which was floating in oil and she left it. As we said earlier we know a thing or two about Thai food. This place is a disgrace.
