We were greeted by a very kind hearted Nikki, who took the time to learn all our names. She was incredibly attentive to our needs, even brought me a glass of milk when she could see me struggling with the spice I thought I could...handle! The service from her was absolutely fantastic. The chef served the best Thai food we have ever tasted. She is incredibly talented and showed me and my family what real authentic Thai should taste like. Overall experience was nothing but positive and I would love to go back.More

Fantastic Thai food with a lovely view of the Marina. Started with the “Tom Kha Gai” which is meant to be a soup for ‘starter’ but wow was it huge and definitely big enough for a main and served with rice which I didn’t even...touch. Plenty of chicken and good flavour. Then went for the “Phad Thai Goong” which was stir fried noodles with prawns and shrimps. Huge portion size once again and really nice (only 2 prawns at the top which would be my only complaint). Lovely service and and a lovely ambience to go along the great food.More

My husband, self-proclaimed tomyumboy 🤣 and I enjoyed the dishes and service here! We dined last Wed and was sad to know that they are closed every Thursday. Tomyumboy wants to come back tonight before catching our flight and we will see the smiley faces...of Sandy and Nikki again! Thanks Nikki and Sandy for delivering great service! 🙏🏻❤️ Kob Kun Ka and Salamat!More

The restaurant staff were not as attentive or well mannered as the other restaurants we have visited in the past at the Marina. The waiter was very rude and seemed annoyed to serve us, and the waitress seemed too new to the food menu and...couldn't answer our questions properly. The food delivery to table took too long, the food was good but I imagine it would've been more tasty if served hot and fresh. The dessert how ever could've been better as the mango seemed a bit too unfresh. If you visit the Marina I would not suggest wasting and money your time here.More

We had the pad thai, pad kapraw and green curry. The green curry is one of the more popular dishes but it is spicy and the best of all 3. The pad thai was good if u love sweet pad thai. and pad kapraw is...so so. But it is a good place to get south east asian food in the area.More

Chicken boiled with fish sauce is very delicious! Soft chicken with great salt and sour sauce. Another dish that I really recommend is Pad Krapao neua, beef fries with basil. As I try many Thai restaurants in Maldive , Chef Mod is the best Thai...food’s chef in Maldives. If you wanna taste original amazing Thai food. I recommend here. 👍👍👍More

Absolutely delicious and authentic Thai cuisine! The spiciness was on point and there were relatively many vegetarian options as well, compared to other restaurants on the island :) The waiters were all more than friendly and were always looking out for us. Definitely recommend going...there if you ever get to visit saii :)More
