Michelle T. March 6, 2014 - Hands down the best place for thai food and sushi in SE MI. I've been searching for a thai place that matches Thai Chilli in Atlanta (my best prior experience with thai food). This place fits the bill perfectly, so I'll start with the awesomeness of the thai menu. Things to try: any of the curries, drunken noodle, coconut soup. Anything I have tried I have loved! The veggies are fresh and cooked just right. They don't over-fry their tofu. Their beef tastes great (many Thai places fail here). They make my extra-thai hot curry EXACTLY the way I like it, with lots of fresh thai chilies. Summary: Great, fresh ingredients, great spice, great price, huge portions. They even give you extra rice for your leftovers (yep, you'll have lots of leftovers).
The sushi is the cheapest in the area, the portions are amazing (no skimpy piece of fish atop a ball of rice here), and everything tastes very fresh. Yummy seaweed salad served with pretty flower petals. $4 for 2 pieces of nigiri or a $10 roll-- you cannot beat that!
Also try the ice cream. The mango ice cream tasted like it was made from real mangoes and had a nice, creamy texture.
Good thing Mali Thai is cheap, or else I would definitely be in the poor house (I am seriously considering just eating here for dinner every night).
Finally, the service is amazing. I think I have met the owner and he is always friendly, funny, and helpful. The wait staff is amazing as well. Definitely worth dining in. This decor is nice and it is clean. The music is oddly relaxing.
Bottom line: sushi and thai lovers would be crazy not to come here.
Taylor T. March 9, 2014 - Been looking for an authentic and flavorful Thai restaurant for a while. Stumbled upon this one and haven't looked back! I've tried a lot of Thai restaurants in the area and this is by far the best one! I'm so glad to have found Thai food made like the Thai restaurants back home in the Seattle area. Super flavorful food, authentic, fresh, and a great staff! The owner is delightful. I really like their shrimp ginger stir fry, garlic stir fry, and garlic fried rice with shrimp. As a huge Tom Yum soup fan, I am very particular about it... Mali meets my standards. Bottom line: Go here and go often - like me! :)
Fred F. March 22, 2014 - I told the staff today i was going to give them a glowing review and i'm keeping my word :) My sister gave me the menu yesterday and so today me and my friend decided to give them a shot. Immediately when we walked in we noticed how beautiful the place was decorated and designed. The staff was completely kind and attentive to us. These were already good signs. Once we tried the food that sealed the deal. Our sushi was freshly made and prepared with perfection. I ordered lobster and California rolls while my friend ordered the salmon. They were plated beautifully and tasted flavorful. After that, the staff was very kind and surprised us with a roll off of the chef's special menu on the house! We were completely blown away to receive something twelve dollars in value for free like that. So i owe it to them! Everybody in Plymouth Canton, i'm telling you, this place totally delivers. It was a fantastic experience and worth every penny.
Jan O. March 23, 2014 - There was not one thing I did not like about this place!
Our server, Lucky, was great - friendly, funny and attentive.
The vegetarian spring rolls are hand made. No frozen stuff here! They came out piping hot and were delicious.
Neither I or my dining companion really do sushi, but today we felt like being adventurous so we ordered the spicy yellowtail roll (salmon, spicy mayo, cucumber) and The Great Wall (tuna, avacodo, cream cheese, jalapeno, deep fried with creamy balsamic sauce). Both were absolutely excellent.
I typically stick to drunken noodle and pad see eww when ordering Thai, but there were items on the menu that I haven't seen at most Thai places. One such dish that caught my eye was the North Noodle dish with egg, broccoli, pineapple, carrots, water chestnuts topped with cashews and peanuts. I am happy that I didn't go for the old standby, because holy cow the North Noodle was GOOOOD!
The decor is simple, tasteful and relaxing. The dining area and restrooms were clean.
I'm going to enjoy coming back and sampling more of the menu.
Jana S. March 25, 2014 - Your advertisement flyer brought me in to see you. The excellent service and delicious food will be bringing me back! I just posted a 5 star review on Yelp, and I see that you have received more from other patrons as well. I love seeing individually owned restaurants get the business they deserve. Keep up the good work.

I wanted everyone at Mali Thai to know how wonderful everything was that my family ordered yesterday. Not often can I get my children to try anything new however everything looked so good that my children tried it and couldnt get enough. I will definitely order here again. Thank you.
Alisa M. April 27, 2014 Decided to try this place today, as other Thai restaurants I frequent are closed on Sunday, and I'm happy I did! Went in to order carry out, and was promptly greeted and helped. The restaurant itself is nice and has a relaxing atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly, quick and helpful. I ordered the beef vegetable curry with shrimp also added, and it tasted fresh and delicious. I also got the coconut soup with chicken, and it far surpassed my expectations. It was spicy, but not too spicy to where the many flavors were lost. Excellent!! One thing that was super fantastic is the carryout bag was given to me with a piece of cardboard at the bottom so everything stayed put in the bag. I loved the fact that they were smart enough to do this, thus avoiding a potential mess when driving. It's also great to know that they deliver in a five mile surrounding radius, which is awesome since I work at a nearby plant. This place is now my new favorite. 5 stars all around!!
Jianmin G. May 26, 2014 Best Thai food experience anywhere.Our favorites are South Curry Noodle and Pho. The food is simply fantastic, and we are craving for it all the time. We would be visiting more frequently if not for feeling embarrassed to be seen here so often.
Sherice Z. July 14, 2014 Let's be honest, this is strictly about the food. I could be petty or knit pick but this is about the food!! I had the Pho, my first time ever having this dish. Amazing!! I started to add spice to it and by the end of my bowl I was sweating all over! My daughter had the la da with chicken, equally amazing! So happy I get to have that for lunch tomorrow! My husband stuck to his usual and had sushi, miso soup and salad. He was very please with his meal as well, nice big generous bowl of soup, large chunks of tofu, plenty of seaweed, delicious! His salad was large too and plenty of toppings! Over all this was an amazing meal. $39 with tip, but I would gladly pay it again. The only thing they could different is add child portions. Such good food!
Cannabis C. July 16, 2014 I really have no complaints about this place. It was clean, open feeling and the food was tastey. I got a Miso soup, house salad, California roll and Philly roll. The rolls were nice and cold and tasted fresh. If I had to pick something I didn't like it may have been the Wasabi paste they use. But it was fine. The service was prompt and friendly. This was my first visit but I plan on going back soon. Prices are decent. For my entire meal it was around $14. My wife had a Thai soup dish that she loved. We are looking forward to going back to try other dishes.
