Pai Thai won Best South East Asian Restaurant for the fourth consecutive year.

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant in all aspects; starting with the abra ride to Pai Thai, to the attention to good service/manners of the Pai Thai staff, our appetizer and main courses as well as the ambiance. Would recommend this to friends and family alike.

We had a lovely dinner experience. We especially appreciated the friendliness of the attentive staff. The food is excellent, fresh and we balanced. The ambiance and setting on the canal of the Madinat Jumeirah resort is romantic and fitted our occasion. The restaurant is certainly not cheap but given the location, service and quality worth the money for special occasions.

This is because the restaurant lights are above the fan and every time the fan moves it's propeller blocks the light and the shadow of the propeller can be seen on... More
