A terrible experience. Poor quality food and obscenely expensive, even by Male standards. The table was filthy. We had to ask the waiter to change the table cloth. We are experience traveller in many third world countries so this was not a timid traveller's experience. I initially mistook this restaurant for a local, family restaurant of a similar name where...

Had dinner at this hotel. Had a Thai green curry with rice. Quantity of the dishes were quite ok for 1 person. The taste was ok, nothing very special. The prices were on the higher side but then Maldives is supposed to be more expensive than other places. It was quite clean but rather dim lighting so it sort made... More

happened to pass the restaurant and decided to eat here. It was an okay experience - the restaurant was really dim, food was so-so, price was rather high.

This is a reasonably priced , clean restaurant in Male. Pad Thai is delicious as are the freshly squeezed juices.

The food is great, a little expensive compared to other restaurant serving Thai food. The steam fish in light soy sauce and garlic was fantastic.

They serve Indian and Thai Food and other Dishes as well. I really don't like the Thai Food they serve , But the Indian food selection is good. Try the Chicken masala with Rice or Parata. If you are tourist and go there with a guide be aware they might over charge you, And don't let them rip you off.... More

Tourist trap. I ordered and is expecting a whole fish, we got big chunks of a larger fish, very tough like rubber we suspect it's shark meat. I inquired where's the fish head, tail, bones and the reply was "it was deboned". I returned the fish and cancelled it. Tom yum kung was like a clear soup, used canned mushrooms... More

The menu boasts a great variety of dishes and after trying quite a few I favour the Indian selection. It is a lot better priced and full of aromatic spices and flavours. I had the Fish Masala and Dahl Fry today and it was most delicious.

I really liked the Maldivian soup called Garudiya which is kind of a clear soup with chunks of tuna and lots of flavour. The service in Lemongrass was good. It's not a fine dinning but very good value for money and tasty food.
