Owner is super friendly. Food is really, really good. Best quality and taste in Maldives. Its a fairly small place and always busy, so try to go just before or just after the lunch and dinner rush.

The restaurant is easy to find. It's clean and the waiter was kind and gave us good service. Every dish is a lot of food and it tasted delicious.

Authentic Thai food made with quality fresh ingredients flown in from Thailand each week. You can definitely taste the difference. Have not tried a dish here that I did not like :)

Dear M_Boin, have a feeling that there is something to clarify, first of all, all our ingredients are authentic and from Thailand, maybe you can imagine that to fly is in on a weekly basis is a very costly exercise? Also the chefs are from Thailand, with us since opening in 2007, the rent for properties in Male are on... More

The food was amasing and the hospitality a treat. All our future one day going through Male is solved. Sala Thai, looking forward to taste... More

I agree with previous comments that this is the best restaurant in Male - but there does not appear to be much competition.

The service was attentive, sometimes overly so as we were the only... More
