We took a boat from Madinat to Al Qasr, it was very romantic (a bit hot as it was summer but nevertheless...), we were greeted with a smile as we entered the restaurant, our waitress was wonderful and very attentive. We had the tiger prawns (best prawns I've ever had) and roast duck (amazing, with tamarind sauce), the food was... More

I can't remember the dish I got but it was a chili, chicken with sweet sauce and rice. I got the gondola to the restaurant, it is a magnificent ambassador for the holidaying brilliance of Dubai. Experience was phenomenal.

The great thing about Pai Thai is not only the food, but the ambience (when the weather is cooler!) Sitting outside by the Madinat Jumeirah canals, with the small abras going by, the ambience is very relaxing. It is matched by the excellent Thai food (we took some friends there last year and when we saw them again over summer... More

So nice we ate here twice (in one week)!!!! Pad Thai offers an exquisite culinary experience. The explosion of flavours truly wowed me and took me on a journey that I don't want to forget. The menu is not too extensive, they have cherry picked the best of Thai dishes which means that anything you order will not disappoint! I... More

Visited this restaurant after a long day travelling. The staff were wonderful and happy to explain anything about the menu, and the food was simply the best Thai I have ever tasted. Not cheap, but if you want cheap don't go to Dubai.

Pai Thai was one of the best restaurants I have visited. The food, service and experience was truly amazing. Starting from the boat ride to restaurant to wonderful service followed by some mesmerising food.
