Enjoyed dinner at Malee's when traveling through Scottsdale. The first time we ate there we thought it was great. This time on a Friday night it was not as good. But will give it another try next time.

Hardly anyone I know has not been to Malee's on Main Street. Many claim is their "favorite" and return again and again. I am not a Thai guy, so the rating reflects that. Although I did finally find a dish, my friends are a better judge than I. Overall, after many decades on Main, you have to try it out,... More

First-timer, loved it. This place was not crowded on a Friday night, and yet everything was perfect. Sticky-Rice & Mango was perfect dessert. Going back!

I'm from Thailand and I will not recommend this place. The noodle soup we ordered was so bland. The broth taste like plain hot water. The cook is not Thai. There is not one Thai person in this place except me. That being said, the service and the ambience was good. Go have some good Tex-mex.

Start with the sampler appetizer and you won't regret it! We enjoyed drinks from the bar, excellent main courses and great service al fresco. It was the best meal of our trip.

We were visiting family in Scottsdale. This was our first visit there, but is one of their favorites. My husband and I agree food was very good, service was good, and a cozy place. We ordered 7 or 8 dishes to share amongst the 7 of us. Everything was tasty.

I heard the waiter say this was the busiest Sunday night he had worked at the restaurant, but I didn't have to wait to be seated. It did take about 15 minutes before he appeared and took my order and that was the one and only time he appeared at my table until I had finished eating and had asked... More

I've been to Thailand and this is the real thing. The food is awesome and spiced appropriately. I love spicy food and got the pad thai a 3 on a scale of 0 to 5 and it was perfect for me. The tom kha soup is my favorite. The service is lightning fast and it's a family atmosphere. A fully... More

I recently ate at this wonderful Thai restaurant in the heart of Old Towne Scottsdale. The food was authentic and excellent. I suggest ordering at minimum "medium" spice to appreciate the flavor. Excellent service as well.
