Extraordinary and Awesome Food

The ambience is very unique and inviting. The service is impeccable. Our boat ride to the hotel was a unique experience, and the food is absolutely delicious. The best Thai food I have ever tasted!

Our 1st port of call to our favorite restaurant upon our return to Mina A'salam. Mixed starters yummy, mains to die for (as was doggy bag as portions generous), deserts over tempting. Service 1st class. You gotta go see for yourself.

Great location with excellent cooking. The appetizers were perfect and the sea bass and green curry chicken one of the best really authentic Tai

Great service, menu and wine list. Smart casual. Highly recommended with family or as a couple but probably best without children.

I had lot of expectation but I was disappointed. Food and set up is good but service is very poor. I booked our reservation 3 months prior of our arrival in Dubai.

Have to thoroughly agree with the review from 'ramseys' this place is the biggest let down ever. We could barely get a reservation in this restaurant whilst staying in the dar Al masyaf, so when we finally did at 10pm on a Friday night, we expected great things!

A fantastic restaurant for Thai food with enough options for vegetarians. It's impossible to write how good food actually is. A tip for those that like their food spicy - opt for either mid-spicy or actually spicy because the food as is would taste bland! The boat ride to Pai Thai is a nice way to tease your senses for...

We went there for my birthday. In previous years we have been to other Jumeirah restaurants locally and had a great experience at some. Having read the reviews we were really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately we were beyond disappointed. Compared to (eg) Zheng He the restaurant was cramped, had no ambience, noisy, with distracting fans we had to... More
