The evening started with a Maldivian drink followed by a short video that educates about a bit of Maldivian history and the food of the region. The staff were very friendly and extremely attentive, explaining every Maldivian dish. The first night we ate there they...served a sample menu where you get to try every dish. Anything you like they happily serve it again. We had an awkward person in our party who doesn’t eat fish or cheese and they adjusted the dishes to cater for this. The chef came to chat for a while about the food, life and the universe…. The restaurant is build like a Maldivian house to add to the atmosphere. We went back for another meal another day and they were so friendly again. A thoroughly enjoyable evening. Like all the speciality restaurants you are offered to eat there once per week on average. The menu is not big but very unique and definitely worth a try.More

This is the first time we have tried Maldivian Cuisine. The staff were so accommodating, from the first moment we arrived, we were shown a small film of the Maldivian culture before a Maldivian appetitive. The meal consisted of a plethora of small dishes which...consisted of fantastic fish dishes and a couple of chicken and beef dishes. I am delighted to say that we are here twice during our stay .More
