Situated at a chilled location near the Jettys... but service was at its worst since there wasnt anyone to come up and take your order as well as once placed it took 1hr to get a tandoori chicken sandwich. Food was good overall and nice location.

I ate here during my lunch break. I love their menu selection. They have promotion available for lunch. Though food is good, their coffee is a little disappointing. My expectation is quite high as it was highly recommended by my Maldivian colleagues.

Food was tasty and the customer service was good. They have free wifi. But it is very slow, they need to upgrade it. Most of time it does not work.

After so many horrible attempts at sandwiches and shakes we've tried throughout the Maldives, it was nice to have some tasty sandwiches and shakes. Great spot to take a break before taking the ferry to airport or Hulhumale.

When one discovers superb customer service and food quality a certain magnetic field has developed. Shell Bean has become my favorite stop when in Male' in preparation to board the Airport Ferry or the Hulhumale Ferry.

You can get a decent coffee drink at Shell Beans. Both their tandoori chicken wrap is delicious and burgers are delicious. However, service can sometimes take a while.
