We ate there twice this trip adding a dinner. what ever we have had there is good. Add a pandan dessert great end... More

We had a terrific lunch on a Wednesday. We walked in about 12:30 pm and the place was jumping. Only one table empty and they were a little bit in the weeds so it took a little while to get our server to come back and take our order. He apologized for the slower than normal service, luckily we were... More

We ate here at the recommendation of a friend, and were not disappointed. Thai is a cuisine we don't know well, so we appreciated our server's suggestions and his willingness to explain the various degrees of hotness and accommodate our preferences. A great introduction to this cuisine.

We regularly eat Thai food. This was one of the best. You can readily get your order customized. Large selection of items. Vegan friendly if that's what you want. (Couple we ate with were vegans.) Especially liked the tofu with spinach dumplings and the mango fish. You are "safe" ordering food medium spicy. It won't have too much heat.

Great food and great location! My wife and had lunch in their outdoor area which provides a nice view of the shops out front. I had the beef with cashews which was spectacular. My wife had the hot and sour soup which was likewise really good. These dishes are spicy!

We brought our girls to Malee's tonight and it was a huge hit, even with picky eaters! Consistently fresh and delicious Thai food! One of our favorites in Scottsdale. Best Pad Thai I've ever had! Honestly, I've never had a bad dish here. The service is top notch! Enjoy!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a tour guide. We had a late lunch here and were glad we decided on this spot. The food was excellent -- tasty, reasonably priced, and served promptly. Our leftovers provided a second delicious meal :) Personally, I think this meal was the best Thai food I've ever had!
