4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

This is the perfect place to catch your breath after a wonderful boat trip. We cooled ourselves at the shades in their courtyard. The meal was fantastic, one of the best we’ve had in Male and the staff will make you feel specials. They have a very good Indian cuisine that will make you lick your fingers. Surrounded by a friendly atmosphere, this place for sure made us to think about it next time when we come to Male. I really recommend it.

“Good food, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2013

After our boat trip from our island we were staying at,& a visit to the Friday Mosque and the Sultan park, we had worked up quite an appetite not to mention a thirst, as the sun (although glorious!) had been very hot, and there was 'nt much shade around, so we were more than glad to find a nice restaurant in the shade, where we had a very tasty meal & a long cold drink, both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. The Royal Garden Café, had a large courtyard on the premises, where lots of the locals seem to congregate. They were all very friendly, and the staff were really courteous & helpful & the indian meal was delicious

“Yumm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

A local favourite, conveniently located near the biggest office building in the Maldives and among a popular tourist attractions.

One thing great about this restaurant, and something hard to find in Male' is that the taste of a dish is overall the same every time you visit and order. So my friends and I have favourite dishes there and we are guaranteed that the taste would be the same - satisfaction guaranteed!

Most of the waiters are also quite pleasant.

Be ready to see lots of local men enjoying a coffee and many tourists as well.

The food is OK. The little courtyard is charming though. It is popular with the locals, especially men. The place is conveniently located near the Sultan Park and the Friday Mosque.
