My family has been coming to Malee for years. We have tried every item on the menu and it is all excellent. But a few of our favorite dishes are Chicken Panang, Pad Thai, Kai Med Ma Moung, Roast Duck and Pad See Eew. The soups and appetizers are also delicious. The quality of the food, the service and atmosphere... More

very nice location, though every now and then the train rumbles by outside, other than that, it's a nice quiet spot in Ridgewood, NJ...prices are above average for Thai, but the food is very good, service is attentive. Bring your own wine, beer, etc.

we live in Ridgewood, and despite the great selection of local restaurants, the choices for Thai are not that great. we have been to others but came away somewhat unsat. Malee is consistent, if not innovative. that is ok. Family run, really nice people and I am happy to support them.

Went for lunch in January. They try to keep the cold out with a heavy, velvet curtain, which helps, but if it's cold out, try and sit away from the door. I was in the mood for something spicy, so I ordered Pad Gra Pow with chicken and you're given the option of "mild, medium, hot or very hot" for... More

This Thai Restaurant, tucked right next to the train station, has great appetizers. The sampler has some wonderful choices and equally wonderful accompanying sauces. It's worth the trip alone. We had high hopes for the remainder of the meal... But this BYOB is lacking in the entree category. Both of our entrees including a classic pad thai done with chicken... More

I thought we are eating in the best Thai restaurant in my last review (of a different Thai restaurant in Bergen County) - wrong! This one is the best!! Plus the ambiance and the quality of ingredients - top notch! Sorry for the gushing it's just so hard to find a real good authentic Thai restaurant.

My husband and I LOVE this place! Bring your own, inexpensive food -- what's better than that? DELICIOUS FOOD! We ate here for the first time a few weeks ago and have been back 2 times since. Love their spring rolls! My husband had a curry chicken dish and loved that as well! You won't be disappointed!

I keep searching for authentic Thai food and have been 90% disappointed until my first visit to Malee Thai Restaurant. This is Thai done in a Traditional manner, you ask for hot you get hot!

This is my spot to go to for a quick and delicious lunch. The price for lunch is worth it.. Better than most lunch spots.. The server is very understanding of the amount of time you have away from the office and ensure that you get out in time. All my lunch choices has come out to my expectation. I... More
