Hostess is extremely rude,servers seemed hurried, stressed and overwhelmed. Very unfriendly,not at all helpful. Food was good but service was horrible. Would not return here. They do not deserve my hard earned money.

Mali is my new favorite Thai and sushi restaurant! It’s been at this location for 20 years and we went long ago, not considering it memorable—there are so many nearer to us that we liked. Then it fell off the radar. We ended up here by accident while running errands and are so glad we revisited it. We will make... More

Ok so I'm new to sushi but I've finally tried it and I'm obsessed so on my visit to Mali I tried theirs and apparently I was spoiled by my favorite spot and I just couldn't get that taste I was looking for that night at Mali. I spent a small fortune and was never really excited. They didn't appear... More

I lived and worked in Bangkok for a number of years and always have found it challenging to get authentic Thai food here in the states. Most places claim to have "Thai", but in reality it turns out the be Chinese with some spice added. Mali changes that game. Their Larb is delicious and just like I had back in... More

This is a long time restaurant in this location that has expanded and become more of a trendy restaurant. However, it has lost some of the charm and quality it used to have. Seating is tight and space is noisy. Service was rushed and not relaxed. Overall food was OK, but nothing exceptional. Everyone felt their main course was too... More

First time for my wife and I to dine here and we really enjoyed the overall experience. We sat in one of the low to the ground tables near a nice corner window up a 1/2 flight of stairs. Service was excellent, the food was really tasty, and prices are reasonable. Will return for sure.

I live in the neighborhood and had never eaten here until this week. Well worth a visit...We had Siam tofu, Tom Kha soup, pad Thai, and sushi and everyone left happy. The food was great, and the service was OK. Our server messed up two of our four entree orders, but fixed the sushi mess up quite quickly. At the... More

I have been wanting to check out this Thai restaurant for forever and finally got the chance to. First off let me say I absolutely love the location and ambiance of this restaurant. The hostess was super friendly but gave us an odd seat at a 6 top table next to a really loud family, was hoping for a smaller... More
