An amazing experience from the start..... Easy booking by phone and explanation of location and arrival by car. Complementary Valet parking, courtesy boat to restaurant, fantastic menu, excellent service and an amazing way to spend our wedding anniversary. 5* all the way. After visiting Phuket last month we were not disappointed .... A must, can't wait to return for outside... More

The journey there on an abra, the service, the choice of food available and most importantly the taste was absolutely divine. We had some gorgeous chicken dumplings to start, and then pad Thai and massaman curry. So flavoursome. Hugely recommended.

Was really looking forward to dinner at Phai Thai, however unfortunately it didn't meet our expectations, or the standards of many of the other restaurants on the half board deal. The food was fine but I was expecting it to be superb. There isn't much of an atmosphere in the restaurant, despite it being busy, although I'm sure this changes... More

Been there twice in two special occasions!! Both of the times the food was great, big variety of choice and very good quality. Amazing taste and fresh!! Great Mocktails and really amazing service!! Everyone in/going to Dubai should try this restaurant!! Make a booking, get there on time, take the Abra(arabic style boat), and try to sit in the terrace!!

It has been an early evening and suddenly I have decided to spend some quality time. Indeed, it has been a nice idea to visit Al Qasr hotel and the Phai Thai restaurant. Service was excellent, the contingent of the venue was high profile. Now the most important part - Food. Food was cooked well and the presentation was nice... More

Very disappointing. Very beautiful surroundings. Staying at the amazing Al Qasr hotel, we arrived at the restaurant by abra along the wonderful waterways. The restaurant inside is very dreary, don't expect flowers or traditional sculptured flowers or fruit adorning your food. Food is unexceptional, especially for the price. All other restaurants we visited in the hotel were excellent.

Had a lovely supper last night in Pai Thai. It is an old favourite of ours that we often go back to. They have recently changed the menu and we tried a new duck dish which was totally divine. Possibly the best Thai dish I've ever eaten. It was deep fried crispy duck with some vegetables and a dark sticky... More
