A bit of a surprise, we were shopping at Walmart and wanted to eat and saw Malee Thai across the road. We were staying near the Duke stature across town but enjoyed the food so much, we came back for two more meals. Enjoyed the Crab curry, Pad Thai & the Curry. There are so many restaurants tempting you on the way to Malee Thai.

Super spicy; medium heat or mild? Everything will be cooked to your liking. Can't have coconut milk? No problem. The Chef here creates every dish to please your palette. My daughter and her boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed the Thai sweet tea. It hits the spot on a hot and humid day. We had the Curry Crab dish, Pad Thai, and eggplant, summer rolls and fried squid. Everything was excellent and we had leftovers. The squid is very tender and tasty. The crab dish is super delicious, but I could just eat the sauce over rice and be happy. We finished with a mango rice dessert which my daughter devoured. If you live here, this is the kind of place that you should bring your out of town guests. Trust me, they will be impressed.

Excellent Thai restaurant which we have been visiting over the years when we visited Hawaii. Their prices are reasonable. As my wife is Thai, they would adjust the taste to suite her. They were able to cook Thai dishes that are not in the menu. Highly recommended!!

Actually planned on going to Masala which is next door but they were unexpectedly closed for lunch today. Instead we stopped here and we are glad we did.
The shripm Thai rice was excellent as was the Yellow curry with chicken (medium heat) and the yellow curry with tofu (mild/medium heat). The serving sizes were generous - left overs of all three entrees, and the price was good (roughly $10.50 each).
If you are near Ala Moana mall, skip the mall food and come here.
