One of the very best Thai Restaurants that I have been to! And being a Malaysian which is close proximity to Thailand, I have frequented many! I can surely vouch that every item on the menu is a hit!

I have been here several times in the last couple of years. The service is very good and the food is excellent. It is absolutely a restaurant not to miss when you are visiting Male.

Superb Thai food in a luxurious setting with excellent service! Off course when in Maldives you should have seafood.

The food was really excellent, and the service was Good; my friend who invited me is very fond of this place especially the Food and Management. It's his favorite haunt in Male' and when ever he visits Male', he would have a meal there. I also like the food at Sala Thai.
