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

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
