Place is modern and does not reflect the Indian culinary setting. Service was good and food was fresh. Not an experience to die for but the place is well located if you are hungry while scrolling along Male seashore

Not only did I often eat there, I even stayed a couple of times on their 1st floor staying facilities. This was primarily for logistics convenience.

Not the best, But they do serve Good Indian Food. One of the few Indian Speciality Restaurant in Male Located in the Main Street Majeedee Magu. Nice to Have Tali Meal or your favorite Indian Biriyani. They also serve food Thadoori Chicken and Tikka Masala. A Place to remind you the taste of Indian Food.
