The scallops flavor was amazing but also very grainy/gritty as if they hadn’t been cleaned …. Look forward to a much better experience next time I order the scallops!

Sat at the bar on Mother’s Day instead of waiting for our reservation. Robbie was our server and was phenomenal. He was very attentive even with a full bar. He even took the time to explain the dishes we were considering. The food came out in a timely manner and everything was delicious and hot! Do yourself a favor and order the roti and ask for Robbie.

Food was excellent. Service was top notch. Restaurant is nicely designed, but itself was a bit noisy between piped in music and the conversations. Overall, a very positive dining experience. We have eaten there before and we will return.

My girlfriends and I had our first experience at Malai Kitchen-Fort Worth to celebrate my birthday. They were coming from Dallas, Las Colinas, and Cedar Hill and could not stop raving on how the travel was well worth it. The food was spectacular, from the drinks, appetizers, entrees, and desserts. They are asking when our next visit to try out the brunch. Thanks for making it a wonderful experience and fulfilling my craving for some scrumptious Pad Kee Mow.

Just wanted to give special thanks for the absolutely incredible customer service. My partner didn’t like her entree dish and the staff went out of their way to let her order something else and not charge for the first dish! Neither of us expected this, and we wills definitely be returning to our fav local Thai restaurant :) keep up the good work!

This is the only restaurant we are visiting regularly these days. The menu is so varied we can put together an amazing light meal of appetizers as we did this time or we can settle in for an amazing main meal. Every single offering is delicious, beautiful and healthy.

We have nothing to complain about! The service was exemplary, the team worked in unison across all tables and seemed to enjoy their work, and the food and drinks were all delicious. Love their barbecue ribs plate and the margaritas, especially the jalapeño concoction. Would highly recommend for date night or a birthday outing, and the patio is a great spot to be.

Always great good! Our server was so good- he was attentive, caring, & professional. My only complaint is that it’s loud. Turn down the music- no need for it to be that loud since people enjoy visiting with each other & didn’t come for loud music.

Loved the food, choices, authenticity and fast service. Should take great care that chair seats are also cleaned after each customer group at any table. Making the patio dining area more cozy. Other wise, LOVED IT!! Thank you!!

Despite having a reservation we did have to wait a bit. There are certain things we looking for when we eat here: good food and great service. And the sticky rice bundle to munch on while waiting for our meal. Didn't get it this time sad to say. Had a couple of starters which were good. I tried the lamb shanks for the first time. Bit tough and the sauce was a little thick. Drunken noodles were good but tje chicken satay was not. Flavorless and overcooked. We will eat there again but stick with the noodle dishes

The food and service were GREAT! But, the cocktails were a bit pricey. The worst part was it seems like the air conditioner was struggling to keep up, and our party of 4 was sweating through our entire dinner. Also, there were flies everywhere in the restaurant, buzzing all around us, landing on our table, etc. That's not something you want to see in a place where you are consuming food.

One of our favorite restaurants in Fort Worth! Service, food, and ambiance are consistently exceptional. We were seated on the covered patio. Unfortunately, near by patrons had brought their dog which was barking very loudly during our entire meal. We love pets, however, it was difficult for us to hold conversation and we were several tables away. The servers were gracious and polite, given the circumstances. Otherwise our overall experience would have been perfect.

We asked for seltzer water twice, when it was finally brought, it ended up being sprite. Had 3 different people visit the table before the actual waiter introduced themselves 20 minuted after we were sested
