In Dubai also food has its own experiences, Pai Thai is one of them, one of the best for us. The boat to arrive to the restaurant, the smooth atmosphere there, the kindness and responsiveness of the personnels at the table, the tastiness and quality of dishes, are all combined to give something worth remembering. Of course you pay for... More

Take the boat from the hotel, and arrive in style at the restaurants private pontoon. A friendly greeting and traditional Thai music transports you to the heart of Thailand a welcome respite from the full on high-energy Dubai.

No, I am not connected to the restaurant in any way but I am overwhelmed by my experience of last evening. After the trip with the abra, the very kind welcome by the open staff. After mentioning my girlfriend is allergic for shellfishes somehow every staff member had been informed and with every kind of meal or sauce (even when... More

In brief, placed in a corner of outdoor area so no real atmosphere. Starters where great but main was very disappointing - the red curry fish dish was far too over cooked. The price also was for a Michelin star restaurant and this was way short of this standard ! Won't return.

Our fourth visit here and it remains consistently good. Do book and arrive early if you want a special table outdoors on the water and when the atmosphere feels more intimate and romantic for couples.

This is our first time here and definitely won’t be the last. The entire experience was amazing; our wedding dinner date begins with choices to go to the restaurant either by Abra boat or a Buggy. Of course, we choose to go by abra boat and I guess we made a perfect choice. I was fascinated with the whole ambiance... More
