My girlfriends invited me for a farewell dinner at this restaurant at the Westin Dubai, as I was to move out of Dubai. The music was great, the food also. I loved all the dish choices, particularly the shrimp/rice that came in a pineapple shell! Worth a visit!

Having our first night dinner at the hotel we decided to eat at Spice Emporium and am I glad we did. We are regular Thai Restaurant fans and visitors to Thiland and we found all the food to be fresh, tasty, well presented and extremely authentic!!! We had a child with us so they accommodated for her taste as well.... More

I'm not a great thai food lover I find the use of lemon grass overpowers the other flavours but here I really enjoyed. Not sure if I was lucky in my choices but these dishes were good. Was tempted to go again!

We booked for a meal with family, anticipating a special meal based on reviews and meals at other Westin venues. We are a friendly and polite bunch and despite trying to engage and deal with issues in a friendly manner the situation wasn't remedied. Our waitress was unhelpful, unhappy and didn't refer issues to manager. Drinks orders were confused, late... More

Amazingly authentic flavors, love their pad thai and tom yum in particular as well as many other dishes on the menu, nice patio and indoor seating with great service, I'd strongly recommend for a taste of Thai food.
