I'm really fond of Thai food and this was one of the best green curries I've had outside Thailand. They used proper ingredients - Thai basil, kaffir leaves, fresh green peppercorns, the round thai aubergines - and it showed in the result. I tried the beef version which was excellent. I think the curry and rice was about 35 Dirham... More

I love Thai food. This has a decent variety of Thai food choice. The food taste is good. Slightly over priced I would think. Also vegetarian without fish ingredient is very limited. However, for the non vegitarian, the choice is good. I had Green curry with rice.

We had soups Tom Yum. Dried meat. Squid. Hammour and shrimp cakes. Everything eas tasty and good. Hoeever the waiting time was long and serve was not in order. Which means some of the food was cold by the time we started it.

Once upon a time, I lived in Thailand, my family loves to eat, and I tend to struggle when I have to recommend Thai restaurants outside Thailand. Well, I am more than happy to recommend this one. This is cafeteria food at a mall food court. I expected it to be cheap, which it was, but I didn't expect it... More

That's very strange because you enter in big aerea with many fast food in the shopping center and in the end you found this "restaurant". Yes because is a sort of fast food. You order the food with a book with a photo of all dishes and the very gentle waiter calls you with the bell when the food is... More

This has to be one of the most under rated Thai joints in town. Especially since it is located in the food court at MOE. The flavours of all their dishes are fantastic. On this visit we had the chicken satay with peanut sauce and Red chicken curry and veg Thai curry. All dishes were spot on with very generous... More

Had a lunch at Ban Khun Mae 2 days ago. WOW! The food is exceptionally good and the taste is fresh and pretty authentic for a fast food outlet which left me very impressed. I had a Pad Thai and a Papaya salad. Both dishes are cooked from fresh items and served in very big portions within 5 minutes (i... More

Well, it is a restaurant inside the food court, so don't expect any exceptional service. I live nearby and tried Ban Kun Mei monthly. It is a place where you are paying only for the food, not the service, or decorations. Great food and even if you order delivery, the quality stays the same. I love their grilled need salad,... More
