Reviewed 7 September 2013

The restaurant was easy to find a few blocks back from the riverside. A nice welcome from the waitress and we were quickly seated and with menus in hand. There’s quite a good selection on the menu and interesting to see the range of curries on offer – fairly extensive. We shared starters of Som Tam and some chicken sate, I enjoyed the salad a bit more than the sate, but both were good and nice to see the sate come with a jad as well as a peanut sauce. Mains were chicken and beef with Thai basil, ped grapow. Nice and spicy and tasted good but not the minced type that I prefer, but it did taste of basil and have a good hit of chilli. Singha beer washed it all down and service was lovely. All in all better than I expected and the portions are quite large rather than Thai size so possible to share to keep costs down, although prices are fairly reasonable for Finland.

Past experience with Thai food in Turku meant I went to Malai Thai with low expectations, but this place restored my faith a great deal! We shared an order of chicken satay skewers and fresh spring rolls - both were satisfyingly large portions and tasted great. We both had shrimp dishes for main course (one spicier green curry and one milder red curry with pineapple). Again both portions were large with a good amount of vegetables thrown in and more than enough rice. Service was fast and helpful. I would happily eat there again!

Turku is a town that has been lacking a good thai restaurant so far... Not anymore! Malai thai really deliveres awesome thai food with affordable prices. I've been dining in this place already for many times and not once have I left the place feeling nothing but happy. I really recommend this place for all the thai food lovers out there. Also they don't shy away to make it extra spicy in case that is you're cup of tea. Go and see for your self!

I had tiger schrimps with red curry and my husband had duck in red wine. Our portions were big and they tasted fresh. Price was about 17 euros/portion and lunch is 8-9 euros.
Restaurant was clean and it is located very close to the center. There is a place where children can play.
We will eat there again.
