Malai Kitchen is truly a gem in DFW. With locations in West Village Dallas and Southlake, these folks are consistent in their quest to provide impeccable and modernized Southeast Asian cuisine. It all began when owners Braden and Yasmin Wages paired their backgrounds in the culinary arts with their travels through Southeast Asia and thus bore this favorite hotspot for Thai and Vietnamese fare.

Not only is Malai Kitchen known for their exquisite dishes, they also have six house-brewed beers on draft so you can grab a pint with dinner, give the flight a try or take your favorite home in a growler. Our personal favorite is the Thai P-A - a smooth IPA with 5 hops and hints of various herbs. In addition to these fabulous brews, they also offer an extensive wine list and tasty crafty cocktails like the Punch Pot (made with Hangar One mandarin vodka, Aperol, lemongrass, lemon and curry bitters.)


Sit back, relax, and enjoy the refreshing flavors of the Thai P-A and the Punch Pot. 


Complimentary sticky rice and eggplant puree to start? Yes, please. 

Malai Kitchen aims to elevate classic dishes from Southeast Asia, and they go above and beyond. By using only lean proteins and the finest ingredients in-season, the team prepares most menu items from scratch. The Ahi Tuna Tartare and the Malai Favorites Sampler are standouts among the sharable plates, the latter giving you a chance to try the chicken satay, imperial and spring rolls and the Vietnamese meatballs.


Tuna Tartare for the win.

Lunch and dinner classics include fried rice, pad thai and noodles, and the specialties boast items like the hot pot, sea bass and lamb shank. Looking for something for a specific diet? Most dishes can be made vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free.

The Sweet and Sour Vegetable Soup wows with Vietnamese-style tofu, mushrooms, pineapple, tomatoes, spinach and rice noodles.
