Consistently excellent food. It has been our favourite restaurant in Male for the past 10 years, and we always eat there if stopping over in the capital. Very flavorful, freshly cooked food. Don't expect to dine and dash - quality food takes time to prepare,...More

Had an excellent authentic and interesting Thai meal here whilst overnighting in male. Standard Thai dishes such as satay and fish cakes were done really well as was the tom yum. Main courses didn't disappoint either and really good service. Would definitely come back again.
