About Malee Thai - Highton

Malee Thai’s popularity is such that there’s not one but two outposts of the restaurant. Here in the leafy Geelong suburb of Highton, Malee Thai is a local favourite when the craving for fragrant and flavourful Southeast Asian food hits – and let’s be honest, that’s more often than not. Located in the village centre, on Belle Vue Avenue among the clutch of small shops and boutiques, many set into heritage, iron-filigree buildings, Malee Thai is as popular for a lunchtime break for shoppers as it is for diners looking for a Thai meal with distinction come evening. From hearty curries to delicate salads, Malee Thai is everything you want from a quality Thai restaurant, and the service is, of course, delivered with a smile.

Fantastic food and ambiance. We had two entrees and three mains so we got to try a range of food. The glasses of wine were quite large which was a bonus. We will definitely go back here again.

Food was good. We really like the massaman curry and have it everytime. Our waitress seemed so unhappy and disinterested that we didn't have seconds or be asked if we wanted dessert. So we left a bit confused and disappointed. It didn't feel that we had properly finished the meal. We will be back though, for sitting on the verandah peeking through the trees on a summer evening is a joy.

The greatest pineapple and pork curry I have had for a long time And the service was great, very quick and efficient meals that do not take long to be served. My family liked their meals as well. Well done.Regards Col mcintosh.

Great flavoured food and great service. Only issue for some diners would be it is extremely noisy if there happens to be a large table of diners. Also like the tables outside. Can envisage sitting there for "happy hour" on a balmy night . will definitely be back.

Glad we had booked because they were packed and very busy. We were kept well informed about any delays in our food arriving which didn't bother us as we always love the food. The staff are always friendly, attentive and very well trained. Another delightful experience.
