Malai Kitchen offers a modern approach to Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. Chef Braden Wages sources the freshest ingredients available to make as much as possible from scratch, including house-made curry paste, coconut milk, and sriracha sauce. Though the cuisine is inherently healthy, Braden takes it a step further by using only lean proteins—white chicken meat, beef tenderloin, and seafood. Since each dish on the menu is made-to-order, all can be modified to accommodate dietary preferences and intolerances. Half of the menu can made vegetarian and vegan friendly, while nearly all of the dishes can be prepared gluten-free.


Our beverage program focuses on specialty cocktails conceptualized by barman Jason Kosmas, co-founder of Employees Only, Macao Trading Co., and The 86 Company. Integrating the ingredients and flavors of Southeast Asia, our drinks are designed to complement the robust flavors of each dish. Each cocktail is crafted with care using fresh ingredients and premium spirits, including a house-infused green tea vodka and Kaffir lime gin.

Our wine list was thoughtfully curated by Braden and Yasmin based on their experience living and working in Napa, as well as Braden’s travels through France and Italy. Consisting of a unique selection of exotic labels, each wine pairs well with flavors and textures of the cuisines, but can also stand up on their own. Offering more than 20 wines by the glass, we aim to keep the selection approachable and value oriented. Also of note is the selection of draft and bottled beers, including rare brews from Thailand and Vietnam.



We also brew a small portfolio of beers designed to pair with our cuisine. After discovering Bia Hoi on a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam, we were compelled to share the refreshing brew with our guests. When we couldn’t find a domestic brewery to brew it for us, we decided to give it a try ourselves and acquired a brewpub license. We offer three styles: Bia Hoi (a light Vietnamese rice lager), Thai-P-A (a medium-bodied IPA infused with refreshing Thai herbs), and a Thai One On seasonal rotator.
