Decent place for Indian Food

Basically a hookah joint located in an prominent place. Not very difficult to find. Food items are very decent. Most of the items what we ordered where good except the Panner which was hard (May be because it was the last plate). Service was decent. Over all the ambiance was not up to the mark... read more

Aioli has a beautiful deck and lounge area. The drinks are popular and they also offer hookahs. Their food isn't bad but not particularly good either.

Close to both the speedboat jetty and the airport so ideally placed to grab a quick bite to eat. Great choice of local dishes and specialities and the staff were really friendly and keen to talk when they realised we were English!

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
