We ate at this restaurant both nights we stayed at the hotel. The food is all cooked fresh to order and is totally authentic Thai food. The staff were very attentive and helped discuss the menu and our likes/dislikes so that we ended up with our perfect meal.

It's a pleasant surprise to find the best or one of the better restaurants in Male to be a Thai restaurant! Service was good, ambience is rustic yet classy and food is fairly authentic - minus the ferocious Thai spicy flavours!

Definitely check this place out if you like thai food. Great food, fresh, delicious. Good service. The portions are very LARGE, so you can easily share any soup for 1 and it will be plenty for 2. The other dishes were also pretty large. It is real Thai, so unless you are used to eating that spicy, you can tell... More

I had their special iced coffee and it was very refreshing. The lamb rice dish was delicious and savory. I found the prices comparable to other restaurants.

Small communication problem with the waiter/cook, asked for no dried shrimp in the dishes as a friend is allergic. He said he understood and played accordingly but 2 items still had the dried fish. Luckily we caught... More
