Great food on the waterfront

This restaurant is called City Garden, not Garden - it is, as another reviewer said, closer to Jetty 5, right in the center of the waterfront. Downstairs is great quality fast food (premade sandwiches, salads, etc.) but upstairs, the menu is extensive and all the food is great. The choices range... read more

This is the City Garden Restaurant. Clean and inviting, service a bit slow and food no more than adequate. What really got me was that they said they would accept US dollars. When I paid the exact money they refused to accept dollars in smaller denominations and insisted on large note and giving change in Maldivian money. Totally useless if... More

This restaurant deserves to be put in its proper location, closer to jetty 5 then to jetty 1 and the name is City Garden instead of garden restaurant. I've eaten here many times and never had a bad meal. The location is great overlooking the water and boating activities and the staff and service are lovely.

Great staff, great food and great service. Menu is primarily Thai/Indo/Chinese and it was all tasty. Convenient to airport ferry service and an easy walk to Nasandhura Palace Hotel. The upper level looks out over the water so you can watch the boat action and catch a pleasant breeze. Was also impressed by the cleanliness of the establishment (hand sanitizer... More

We popped in here for dinner having taken a trip to the mainland whilst waiting for our plane. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal! We had a few extra requests which were all provided no problems. The meal was very filling and tasty and very cheap! Easy to find and worth a visit!

One and only place that I'm having meal once I go Male. It takes some time to get the food, staffs are always busy due to lots of guests. But the location is just in front of Airport jetty so easy to access, price is reasonable and food is great.
