The food here is decent. A little bit all over the map, but the few dishes I've tried have been enjoyable. They have an extensive menu of local dishes, as well as SE Asian, South Asia, and western dishes. I'm not sure if it's a hookah lounge every night, but when I went there recently, the entire outdoor area was... More

Like most restaurants in Male, Aioli is set in a residential house within a compound, in a very central location; across the street from the Indian High Commission and Hotel Jen. Little has been done to make the entry and the general external outlook attractive (does not make its presence felt) and the internal furnishing and décor are equally low-key,... More

This is one of the buffets that provides good and tasty food at a very reasonable price. This is Maldivian food mainly and the fish curry when we went was good. The salad was fresh and the the two meat dishes were also good. There was only one desert available, I did not ask of there was anything else though... More

Male is a small island with narrow streets and tall buildings. There is not much to do but have a walk around, look in a few souvenir shops and have a bite to eat. We took the ferry over from Hulhumale to walk around a bit and then grab some dinner. We looked at most all of the restaurants in... More

I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant on two separate occasions in August and September 2014 respectively through a recommendation from a close colleague. There will be not much of a dining choice within the capital of Male. Therefore, this outlet would be a reasonable venue for a decent meal with subtle and cozy ambiance. The location of this...

I've been to most restaurants in the city and this particular restaurant has exceeded my expectations. The service was excellent. Our server, nishaa, was excellent. And the food that we ordererd was excellent. Definately will come back.
