Nice food in perfect place

The restaurant situation is already a good appetizer. When comes the menu, the most complicated is to choose from so many proposed and various food. After the selection is done, you can enjoy a delicious food. And you already planning your coming back.

A beautiful setting for this Thai restaurant, had to get a boat across the river to access it! Well worth a visit, very attentive and helpful staff, a beautiful setting and amazing food, extremely good value for money. Our family enjoyed everything about our visit there, would definately recommend to others!

My partner and I both rated this restaurant as the best Thai meal we have had. The food is incredible but it's the friendly staff and stunningly beautiful setting that make it such an incredible experience. Unmissable if you are going to Dubai

We quickly realised why you need to book in advance. Quality of food was excellent as was the service. Kids menu available for those too young to like Thai. We were treated to a traditional Thai dance on a boat which drifted past this restaurant which sits on the water's edge. The overall ambiance of the restaurant and quality of... More

Pai Thai is located on the edge of Al Qasr hotel in Madinat Jumeirah, along the waterways. It has a quiet and romantic setting. The food is good and authentic Thai cuisine, not less, but also not more. Service is friendly and competent, and prices not cheap, but adequate for a restaurant in such a setting. So if you are...
