Best dinner buffet on island. Lots of vegetarian options. Super attentive, diligent wait staff as well

Bad behaviour from restaurant staff. No proper indication of food we are vegan but don't see this as good option for vegan folks especially my wife didn't like

My experience was with breakfasts and 1 time order. Breakfast is very limited. Unbelievable amount of flies. Long queues on egg station. The 1 time I ordered pizza I asked them to finish in max an hour as I had an excursion, until I left...the room after 1.5 hrs from the order, nothing ever showed up. Not recommended!More

We stopped here to hide from the rain. Order pizza and coffee. Staff was friendly, a little bit scared. Pizza was bad (maybe unfrozen in oven?) coffee was nice. An average experience for the price

This restaurant offers buffet dinner. For 12 USD the restaurant does not offer good enough value for money. Sure its food, but nothing special compared to the other restaurants nearby. Varity, taste, overall quality and presentation could be improved.

We came here for dinner once. The service was excellent and attentive but unfortunately the food was not good at all and therefore we did not return the restaurant again. We ordered a butter chicken and a tuna steak as they didn’t have any shrimps...and prawns available even though they were presented at the menu. Though, this was quite a regular thing in restaurants in Maafushi. Anyways, you could eat the butter chicken, but it didn’t resemble any butter chicken meals I have tasted before. It didn’t really taste anything, and the chicken was so chewy that you needed to cut it down into tiny tiny pieces if you wished to eat it. The tuna steak portion was beautiful but instead of one tuna steak you got 3 small ones with loose skin and fish full of fish bones. It took a long time to separate the skin, fish bones and bad fish parts from edible ones and after the operation was over, more than 50% of the fish was something you could not eat. Worst dinner during our 10 days visit in Maafushi,More

I liked my big grilled fish with a fresh mango juice 🙂 The restaurant is clean and staff is nice. Located inside the Kaani Beach hotel

Tender fish and amazing service. I don’t like fish. I lost a bet and had to order fish for dinner. We’re on an island as you figured probably. So not everything is always available. After a short time of tried to find a fish I...was willing to order we found this place. I ordered the reef fish. And again I don’t like fish but tried many many times. This is the best fish I’ve ever had. It was super tender and tasty. The chef took his time and the server kept updating us on when I food would be ready. Going back there tonight!More

Beautiful setting for a meal in front of the hotel directly on the sand. Dinner buffet was $10USD each. Pretty bland tuna, but one of the local cats like it!
