The Thai word “Marnee” literally means “gemstones,” which are dazzling, colorful, and highly precious. Thai rubies and sapphires are very well known all over the world. Similarly, we at Marnee Thai carefully select high quality herbs and ingredients to make sure all of our Thai dishes retain their original authenticity. Our first Thai restaurant in the U.S., Lotus Thai (opened in 2002, on Oak Valley Drive, Ann Arbor), has been well received by customers who seek authentic Thai food. This enthusiastic reception encourages us to open our second restaurant in the U.S., right in downtown Ann Arbor, Marnee Thai.

Our food was perfect and the service was extremely fast

I always love eating at Marnee Thai. Yesterday was particularly special. The restaurant was strangely empty. It was quiet. The food was delicious. We were three. Two of us were taking a former neighbor out for lunch. She's a "former" neighbor, because she's been hit with hard times. She moved out of her house after her huaband of 25 years announced that he was done with the marriage.. This restaurant proved the perfect spot for the kind of conversation we hoped to have. We succeeded. The owners were kind, soliticous, and caring.

Great food and good value. Decor has touches of Thai influenced pictures and fabrics. Go for the food, the ambiance is more diner than cafe.

We waited an hour for our food and the overall service was poor at best. The food was also very expensive. Of our two dishes, one was quite good and the other pretty bad. Overall, there are better Thai places to choose from in the area.

The food was well prepared. The coconut curry chicken was very good. My date enjoyed it more than the stir fry that she ordered (which was still good). The chicken satays were good, but the peanut sauce that came with them was exceptional. Spiciness levels were perfect. Portion sizes were large. We probably ate half of our entrees and took the remainders home. The amount of rice was just a little on the small size, considering how large the entrees were. Service was very good, even though our server admitted that he was not a regular server. The server was very attentive in regards to our beverages. Also, he easily fulfilled (twice) our request for some slices of lime.

Another great meal at Marnee Thai. A busy night, yet the food came quickly thanks to the hustling waitstaff and managers. Waitress pleasant and helpful. Food spiced to your liking. Gr at authentic options.

Nice place. Went with a party of 5 before a football game. Very friendly service. Food was good and served in a timely manner. I would recommend as a pre-game location.

Booked for 15. They then called & said could only accommodate 12. Food was very low quality, with a few dishes being inedible. No liquor license, so drink choices were limited. Only one server for entire restaurant, and he had a poor attitude. I realize people just have a bad night, but it didn’t help the overall impression. Also, the view is of a gas station.

Medium spicy can end up being Super spicy. Pad Thai lacked any composure or taste.

I have dined at Marnee Thai twice now and both time really enjoyed my food! The menu offers a wide variety of choices and you can adjust your spice level on most dishes (a must for a wuss like me when it comes to spicy food!). It can be served plated or family style so it's a good place for big groups or friends that want to eat a little bit of everything. I've left both times with left overs so it's a good value too. My only complaint is about the bar, I would love to see them expand their selection a bit and carry some more variety, especially in wine. I think there are 3-4 beer options, and 4-5 each of white and red wines. While all the bottles are very reasonably priced, I'd prefer to see a couple more expensive options because the wine we drank was by no means a great wine -- you get what you pay for though! The only thing to add about this specific visit was that we were asked to leave at the end of the night, politely enough, but asked to leave nonetheless. We had just boxed up our food and were using the bathroom -- we were a large group (10) so this wasn't quick given that they only have single stalls -- it was 9:35 and they had stopped serving at 9:15. I was told by the servers "not to rush you, but the owners need to lock up because they want to get to their other restaurant". At which point I noticed that the 3 people sitting in the corner booth were not customers but the owners. They had not been there all night so why they suddenly needed to lock up and leave was beyond me, or why one of them couldn't move on as we finished up -- it just didn't make sense. I don't blame the server because he was probably being told by the owner, but they didn't even make an effort to ask us how the meal was or if we enjoyed ourselves, he didn't even smile when I told him we'd be on our way as soon as everyone used the bathroom. Even after a wonderful meal with family in from out of town (out of the country, actually!) I was really rubbed the wrong way by this.

Disappointed after all the things I'd read. Slow service. We ordered appetizers that never came. They didn't have wine they listed and the server presented the dessert menu with a dismissive air... "we only have...."
