I lived and worked in Bangkok for a number of years and always have found it challenging to get authentic Thai food here in the states. Most places claim to have "Thai", but in reality it turns out the be Chinese with some spice added. Mali changes that game. Their Larb is delicious and just like I had back in... More

This is a long time restaurant in this location that has expanded and become more of a trendy restaurant. However, it has lost some of the charm and quality it used to have. Seating is tight and space is noisy. Service was rushed and not relaxed. Overall food was OK, but nothing exceptional. Everyone felt their main course was too... More

First time for my wife and I to dine here and we really enjoyed the overall experience. We sat in one of the low to the ground tables near a nice corner window up a 1/2 flight of stairs. Service was excellent, the food was really tasty, and prices are reasonable. Will return for sure.

I live in the neighborhood and had never eaten here until this week. Well worth a visit...We had Siam tofu, Tom Kha soup, pad Thai, and sushi and everyone left happy. The food was great, and the service was OK. Our server messed up two of our four entree orders, but fixed the sushi mess up quite quickly. At the... More

I have been wanting to check out this Thai restaurant for forever and finally got the chance to. First off let me say I absolutely love the location and ambiance of this restaurant. The hostess was super friendly but gave us an odd seat at a 6 top table next to a really loud family, was hoping for a smaller... More

We haven't been her in a year or so but decided to try it again, as we use to live in the neighborhood and loved it. We still do. Not quite as refined as our Thai food we had last week, but the tastes were great. We ordered Nua Nam Tok, fresh spring rolls, and chicken satay. We agreed that... More

I had not been to Mali in about two years. The restaurant had expanded into space adjacent to the original location. The new area provides the extra seating that was lacking in the old space. Unfortunately, the lunch entree I selected was not as good as in prior visits. The chicken Massaman curry was mildly spicy, but the chicken was... More

Mali is my favorite place for dinner in Atlanta. The food is amazing, and the atmosphere is open and inspired. Though it's a mid to small sized restaurant there's nothing cramped or dark about it. A totally beautiful space, with delicious food and great service. A full bar is in the upstairs dining area as well. This is the spot... More
