We very much enjoyed the really good and nicely presented food and the wonderful setting right by the waterfountain show and the Al Khalifa Tower. Try and sit outside if the weather allows. The service was OK, not over the top, but absolutely correct. They have a kids menu featuring non asian meals which might be helpful for those with... More

the food is really good, though it's definitely pricey. the service is nice and not the usual dubai overbearing, hovering by your table kind; which is really good. try to get a table outside, you'd have a wonderful view of the fountains. and when they say a food is hot, they mean it's hot, crazy hot, so maybe try the...

This is a superbly situated restaurant with wonderful view of Dubai fountains. We have visited other restaurants over looking the lake & would say so far this is just in front. The food is wonderful & beautifully served: no one rushes you & every dish is carefully prepared. It is not the cheapest but you would not expect it to... More

This is a great restaurant. I went here with friends during a recent visit to Dubai. The big attraction is the view of the fountains. I didn't pay, so I can't speak to the value quotient, but overall the meal was very good.

This restaurant offers good food and service, and great views of the fountain if you are outside. Be sure to book in advance. The food is very good but I find often with this style of food, there is not a huge difference between high end and a small little family run restaurant. So in that respect, it seemed a... More

Along with some friends we booked a table at the Tipthara for a Sat night. It's a famous Thai place at the Palace Hotel (near Dubai Mall). Smart dress is required but managed to get in 3/4 pants and t-shirt. The hotel boasts a host of accolades collected over the years. The ambience and surroundings of Tipthara is formidable. The...
