the buffet was extremely good both of us put weight on there was something for everyone even the fussiest of eaters. The cakes were to die for, All types of wine were good and the bar area was excellent, the iced tea was fantastic.

“Captive audience = exorbitant prices”
Reviewed 18 December 2011

We had about 5 hours to kill before our check in entered so wandered over to Mariyaad to grab a bite and have a seat. I'm not sure restaurant would be the right name for it as it appears to be mainly self service. A gent brought our burgers over though we cleared the tray and plates away.

In keeping with inflated tourist prices, we paid US$31 for two very plain burgers, a coke and mineral water. Fans abound, making it cooler but so did construction noises next door (lots of frequent loud crashes). Food was fine though.

Not much other choice as the other departure restaurant was like a boiling oven and we walked in and turned straight out. Seemed to serve more local cuisine there though.

Overall, if you've got loads of time to spare at the airport, remember to bring enough cash (or your own grub)....

“Hulhule Airport Restaurants”
Reviewed 22 December 2008

Mariyaad Restaurant is situated near to the departure terminal at the main (hulhule) airport. Offering a variety of so called snacks and usual beverages to passengers waiting for either transfers to their chosen resort or the opening of the terminal for their international flight check in.

I find very little positive to say about this outlet - maybe the best recommendation is to avoid it at all costs - due to the vastly inflated prices, inferior food options and excessively poor service.

The only thing that it has in its in favour is that it is a convenient place to sit and wait for the departure check in to open, Being the sole commercial restaurant outlet in a prime location seems to mean that the management doesnt really have to bother too much about any aspect of their operation.
