Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food here is absolutely fabulous. We could have eaten here every night (or lunchtime). The chefs are amazing and they couldn't do enough for you even changing the menu for me. Everything is cooked fresh and served by the wonderful Ziyan. Special mention to...the bartender Vinod for his wonderful Mai Tai's and Ricky's. Also to Ameesha. Thank you for the wonderful breakfast tea. This is Vilamendhoo's best kept secret. It's an amazing place to sit and watch the sun go down before dinner. They have extended the decking to accommodate more people. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. 5 star all the way. Cannot wait to go back in 2025.More

We have had two great meals here both as part of the AIP. We've bought a couple of extra dishes too. The food and service were excellent and their attention to and ability to work with my wife's gluten free intolerance was exceptional. We would...highly recommend eating here to anyone. Thank you guys brilliant service.More

Food was amazing, modern jazz playing (the kind of music that sounds like an orchestra warming up (just a mess to the ears) we combatted this awful music by wearing iPods during the meal

A wonderfully romantic setting right next to the ocean with the fish swimming peacefully around whilst you enjoy some of the best Asian food on offer and all served with a lovely big smile!. Thankyou.

Everything about this meal promised so much; the beautiful location, our table at the water’s edge, just feet away from the clear, blue, lapping Indian Ocean brimming with life and the mouth watering choices on the menu. My senses and tastebuds had been seduced and...were ready to be spoiled. Sadly the food did not come close to my anticipation. It wasn’t bad, it was just, okay. MyTuna sashimi was average, the crispy reef fish tasted like small soggy sweet and sour fish fingers on clumpy Jasmine rice and the dessert, a kaffir lime tart, had no flavour at all, it was just a firm flavourless gel in a pie crust. I expected an assault of crunch, the bite of sourness, the zing of lime, perfumed sweetness and delicious spice, I got none of those and the only saving grace was the cinnamon ice cream. It felt like we’d gone to a perfect venue and been served food from a local Chinese takeaway. The lowest point of our holiday so far.More

I'll simply say, just skip this place. We did do the special Tuesday night on the beach 4-course lobster dinner, which was great. But Asian Wok at this resort just isn't worth the extra cost.

A restaurant over the water with attentive service and very good Asian food. Best to book ahead. Outside tables overlooking the sea add to the calm enjoyable atmosphere.

We decided to treat ourselves one night during our stay on Vilamendhu and we were not disappointed. We sat outside and had a magnificent view - both of the island and of the reef, which was lit up. It was lovely to have our meal...watching the reef sharks go by and we were also treated to an eagle ray. The food was very good and the service was great. Whilst we loved the buffet restaurants on the island, it was nice to have our meal served to us that night.More

We had an inclusive plus package whilst staying for our honeymoon and meeru island but wanted to try the Asian wok restaurant for dinner whilst we were there - it did not disappoint! The food was beautiful, the service was fantastic! Dinner isn’t until 7pm...but try to arrive for a few drinks between 5.30pm-6.30pm so you can enjoy the sunset!! Amazing!More
