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

Highly recommend for very good Thai food - seriously authentic flavors - at excellent if not downright inexpensive prices (i.e., $15 large entrees). Many great Thai offerings - both for soups/apps and entrees. We were a party of four and everyone loved their food. And one of the best things - they kept right to our 8:30p reservation on a...

We ordered the Yin Yang appetizer which was crunchy with potato and cheese inside as well as the chicken thair mushroom soup which was wonderful. Our entrees were the pork and green beans as well as the massama chicken. Entrees were served with rice and well priced and portioned. The restaurant has a neat vibe and presentation of food is...

We had a nice lunch of classical Pad Thai and rolls as an appetizer. The area is great for a walk to see old Atlanta Homes!

This remains one of "go to" restaurants in the Virginia-Highland area. It is beautifully updated, clean, and bright. The service remains among the best of any of Atlanta's restaurants. And, the staff is extremely attentive and friendly. One can usually judge a restaurant by staff turnover. You will see the same faces here for one year to the next, and... More

We had the rainbow chicken and it was perfect. Very spicy and savory. We also had vegetables in golden curry sauce that was a big hit too. Whenever we visit we always get a massaman curry and this time we got the shrimp and loved it. Service was very prompt and attentive.

It's not often that a Thai, sushi combo restaurant is good at both but Mali really impressed. The Massaman curry was thick and rich with good spice. I had the Mali hot hot hot seafood which lived up to its name of being very spicy but extremely flavorful I've been searching for a dish that reminds me of the Talay... More

Ordered sushi and a sushi special. Both were fresh and very good. For dinner we ordered Shrimp with Crispy Fried Basil and a super hot shrimp dish (forgot the name). Big if those were really delicious but I think we favored the shrimp and basil best. For dessert we ordered the traditional mango and sticky rice with coconut cream. A... More
