We went for lunch. Food was good, price reasonable and service first-rate. I will go again. The tempura prawns were great as was the papaya salad and the green curry. My favorites in Thai cuisine.

Visited Aioli with a friend for dinner. The place is simple and away from the din of the older parts of the city. We ordered Indian food for our dinner. The preparation was authentic and the taste was just right...I understand from my friend the prices were typical for Maldivian standards as well. A good experience and recommended for anyone... More

I can't speak for the pizza and pasta dished, but the curry was absolutely delicious. I had the mutton rogan and my collegue had the masala, both had rice and garlic naan breads. If you like a good curry then this ticks all the right boxes. The restaurant is pleasant with an indoor air conditioned seating area as well as... More

The restaurant was recommended in several tour books so I figured it must be good. I do not even remember what I had to eat....just average food.

Visited after reading about this place, and it was a quite nice place. Atmosphere is great, with candle lit dinners. Has an outdoor seating available upstairs and you can dine under the stars. I tried the Murg Makhani and it was quite a mouthful for me. It was a bit pricey but I thought it was quite worth it, especially... More

The newly renovated Aioli is set up in a quiet alley between two main busy streets. The decor is tastefully done, and the food is delicious. The place certainly offers a fine dining experience in Male. And the food is fairly reasonably priced.

Setting: good ambiance on an upper floor with good lighting. Menu: surprisingly decent- more than just Pizza! On our table we had - Chicken Biryani- excellent Tandoori Prawns- disappointing Mussels - very good Curry chicken- very good Tandoori pizza- OK (flavours didn't blend well). Lime soda- excellent! Service: Very good. Our group being eclectic, some misread the waiter's seriousness. He... More

Prepare to pay to London West-End prices. Most of the menu was not avilable. Staff were farily curt and rude and pretended not to understand. Food generally was good and tasty- good sized potions.
