The Green Curry reference for excellence

Food this good has no business hidden away in the corner of a food court. It’s simply amazing. In addition to their Green Curry try the Pad Thai (Phad Thai Goong) – beautiful, if a little too sweet for my pallet. I tried their Ton Man Pla (deep fried fish cakes) which were so good I ended up... read more

Ordered sweet sour hamour. But the fish turned out to be cream dory, one of the cheapest frozen farmed fish. When asked, the staff pleaded ignorance. I find it extremely unethical as it os quite pricey. Loaded with MSG too. Better equip yourselves with big bottles of mineral water. No more Ban Khun Mae for me.

Bad news first: it's located in a shopping mall food court without its own seating area. The decibel level in this solid surface sound amplifying environment leads me to say, take the food back home or to your hotel. The good news is that the food here is good. Also good value with our meal for 2 coming to around... More

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
