We enjoyed our evening at the Pai Thai - although a number of things disturbed us: 1. The poor light (at night) makes it difficult to read the menu. In addition, my highly liberated wife objects to being presented a menu without prices 2. In the absence of being able to read the menu, we put our trust into the... More

The Madinat Jumeirah itself is a spectacular space, but the romance of travelling by Abra to Pai Thai took it to another level. Very good service, great food, beautiful ambience. I had my perfect birthday dinner with my husband. Definitely a must-try.

We dined in the evening so the atmosphere was intimate and dark, so individual lights were provided so we could see the menu. Staff were attentive and fun and the food was excellent.

My husband booked us a dinner here for my birthday and it was pretty good. The flavors were authentic Thai. Wine was good and the setting is absolutely beautiful. Slightly pricey but guess the ambiance comes with a price. Ideally the setting is romantic but even though it was a weekday, the place was very busy and hence noisy. My... More

Pai Thai is a nice relaxing Thai restaurant where you can enjoy an almost authentic taste of Thailand. The dishes are light, blasting with flavors of chilies, lemongrass, Thai coriander and other spices. The surrounding and ambiance is suitable for a dinner with your family.

Best Thai outside of Thailand I've ever had (and that says a lot, actually). The starter was absolutely delicious - crispy prawn wrapped in fried noodles. For the main course I picked, what I always do at any first-time visit to an authentic Thai restaurant, green curry and it didn't let me down. Simply the best (since that one on... More

I visited here last year to celebrate an occasion with some friends. The boat ride out from Souk Madinat Jumeirah was great to set the scene.
