The first restaurant I visited on Malé. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the gang massaman curry. A little bummed they didn't offer coconut rice but apart from that, no complaints. Staff was friendly, and the atmosphere was very nice.

Very flavorful and freshly cooked food. Quality food takes time to prepare, so sit back and relax. It is a lovely quiet corner in a bustling city. Prices are not cheap.but you get what you pay for. Plus superb sitting area. Really enjoy our dinner
