To my surprise, my partner proposed to me at Thiptara restaurant on Sunday 7th December 2015. The team had apparently been amazing in helping him to plan - we had our own little outdoor pagoda, with a view of the fountains. The table was covered in rose petals and there were candles everywhere. They had done so much. I believe... More

Sitting outside by the fountains is a great experience. Food was amazing. Was able to eat without booking a table in a Monday night. Waiter informed us that we had ordered too much when trying to order good which was nice. Expect to spend a good amount, minimum spend outside is 300 Dms each. Having eaten in the UK and... More

When you have visitors first thing you want to show them is fountains. Most of the outlets with fountain view are always crowded and they have to compromise on service. This venue is a simple combo of good food / service / atmosphere and value for money. Take a terrace table, you will not regret it. I give it a... More

Fantastic restaurant and atmosphere. We had a table on the veranda overlooking the Burj Khalifa and the fountains on the lake. We were watching fountain show while enjoying their amazing food & drinking bubbly. A truly great experience and highly recemmonded place to visit when travelling to Dubai.

We've been having dinner here (usually taking our guests for the fountain views) on a regular basis for 3 years now. The food never disappoints, although our guests are probably to busy to notice while watching the fountains. Thiptara is a lovely place, service is excellent and the wine list is extensive. My two regrets: 1. They somehow fail to... More
