If you like thai food then you must visit this restaurant. One of the best. Arrival is by boat, an experience in itself. The food is to die for, the service excellent, the setting fabulous, would definitely go many times.

Came to the restaurant without any reservation but they still accommodate us though they are busy. The service and food was great thank you Wai Lo, Indira, Ferdie who look after us. Chef Apichat and Tim who came to our table. Thank you Pai Thai team. Best Thai restaurant in Dubai.

The first impression was miserable and actually a bit shocking. Al Qasr is one of the highest regarded addresses in Dubai, but... More

I have visited Pai Thai twice and had two very different experiences. The first time I was part of a group of 4. The food, service and atmosphere was great. We took one of the Abra's from the back of Madinat Souk to the restaurant and the ride was amazing going through the man made waterways. The second visit was... More

Took my wife as was recommended by some friends here in Dubai. We weren't let down as the food was excellent. The quaint boat trip to the restaurant was a nice touch and the surrounding were beautiful. I will definitely be visiting again in the coming weeks.
