Ministry of Crab was created as a culinary homecoming for the Sri Lankan Mud Crab and has now made its way to the Maldives. Opened in October 2019, Ministry of Crab Maldives is housed in a charming colonial-style waterfront building at The Marina @CROSSROADS, a 15-minute speedboat ride from the bustling capital of Male. Ministry of Crab Maldives offers stunning views of the marina, breathtaking sunsets, and the gentle coastal breeze.
As the first international outpost directly owned and managed by the flagship restaurant in Colombo, listed among ‘Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants,’ we are built on a foundation that prioritises the freshness and quality of our ingredients. To uphold this standard, we air-freight the finest Sri Lankan Mud Crab twice a week to Maldives. We also adhere to the same strict no-freezer policy as the one in Colombo, which is a testament to our commitment to freshness.
Our star attractions are the iconic Mud Crabs, ranging from ½ Kilo (500g) Crabs to 2KG ‘Crabzillas,’ plated in variety of flavours from the zesty Pepper Crab to the unique Garlic Chilli Crab, and the decadent Crab Liver Pâté. We also celebrate Sri Lanka’s fine seafood, from the giant freshwater prawns found in the lakes and reservoirs of the island, to the fresh clams and oysters from the lagoons, while featuring dishes that highlight Maldivian ingredients such as the Hiki Mas Chahan.
