I ate breakfast here, wonderful! They make their own bread and jam! And they are both delicious. Dinner was so delicious and I always felt bad for not being able to eat all of it! You won't leave hungry:) The location is a lovely place to be, in the garden, on a patio.

Malee's offers good traditional Thai food and is reasonably priced. You can sit and look at the mountains and forests and watch the birds in the garden. The food is plentiful and I could never finish it all. So, a good place to eat.

unless you're really picky there is nothing about Malee's to dislike.they like you to order meals early as there is a small kitchen staff.We had an early call as we were climbing the mountain and the staff had made us a packed lunch.A great place to stay.

lovely tasty home cooked food; with a good selection of dishes, breakfast was excellent and the pancakes to die for. Malee was always willing to alter the spice of a dish particularly if you prefer very spicy food as we do. Loved every minute of our few days here.

The charm of Malee's eatery is not fine dining, nor regional spreads. It is simple good home cooking provided by charming hosts at a reasonable (not bargain) price in a friendly environment. But it has one added and important virtue. It is on the site of excellent great value accommodation close to an awesome National Park. You spend zero effort;... More

Dinner at Malee's was a fabulous affair, don't expect the Royal China to be rolled out it is not that sort of place, the emphasis here is on taste and home cooking and hospitality at its best. You wont find anywhere that has a closer bond between the owner and the guests, Malee is a larger than life presence in... More

The food here is overpriced for what it is but you pay for the ambience I guess. It is right at the foot of doi chiang dao and the views are superb. They have piles of National geograohic books to read and they are all up to date.

This small set of bungalows are located at the foot of Chiang Dao mountain and a great pit stop if you are heading further north on a road trip (as we were). The owners are very friendly, the food was good, but the setting makes this place. Very peaceful amidst all the nature. Get up early to walk the 500... More
