Malee’s Thai Bistro

Cuisine: Thai

Price: $44


Call it serendipity. One evening back in the early 80’s, I wandered into a Thai restaurant by chance. Having Never sampled the cuisine of Thailand before, I was curious to try different dishes. By the end of the evening, I’d fallen in love with the exotic tastes, and flavorful spices of this exciting new food.

I soon became a regular at the restaurant, and continued to explore many others. But as I sat at a table one night, surrounded by walls empty of artwork, with no wine list to peruse and a waiter who didn’t understand me, I realized that as much as I loved Thai food, I was less enchanted with most Thai restaurants. Such wonderful cuisine deserved a better setting. That’s when I began imagining how I could make the Thai dining experience more enjoyable and inviting. A short time later, as I pondered a career change I decided to pursue my dream.

The name “Ginger Monkey” comes from the time Jackson and Doug were backpacking through Thailand. A red haired monkey followed them throughout their journey, all the while stealing clothes, beers, and even passports. After many attempts to negotiate with this red haired primate they were finally able to befriend him and smuggled him back to Arizona! He now proudly sits atop the bar and watches over his new kingdom!

Okay, the true story…Doug and Jackson have been friends for many years. Doug has tabbed Jackson “Ginger” in response Jackson has called Doug “Monkey” and hence the name “Ginger Monkey.”

Please enjoy your visit here at Ginger Monkey and let us know if we can do anything to make your experience a better one!
