Malee

An unassuming place just off of Delft’s main square, the menu is limited but the food is delicious. Despite the inexpensive prices, it’s a great place for a nice dinner.

Food
Malee only serves dinner and only a prix fixe menu. It’s billed as a three course meal, but the main course is typically four different dishes plus rice. Typically, you’ll get a soup, then a sampling of three dishes and fruit for dessert. The main course typically consists of a selection of beef, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes.

The food is delicious. Everything tastes very fresh and bright and the quality of the ingredients is high. Despite this, if you’ve got picky eaters (or those with dietary restrictions) in your dining party, this might be a place to steer clear of. The options for substitutions are limited.

Ambiance
The space is moderately sized, with only a single room, and can get a bit crowded. It’s bright and decorated with typically Thai kitsch, like buddhas and elephants. Don’t be fooled by the price; Malee is certainly upscale enough for a business dinner or a date.

Service
The amount of English spoken by the staff is limited, but as there isn’t much to order aside from drinks, so it isn’t too much of a hindrance for non-Dutch speakers. Everyone is very friendly, especially the head chef/owner who is likely to come out of the kitchen and give you a hug before you leave.

Extras
No English-language menu, though there isn’t any menu available. The daily meal is listed on a sign outside of the restaurant. They do take away. You can call ahead or just pop in and order. It usually takes about 20 minutes to get your food.

Price
Dinner for two will cost about €40 and, considering the amount of food you get, it’s a bargain.
