This is our second visit to the place. We felt like home away from home once again. Stunning view , hospitable staff, royal thai food and manager visiting to your table to make sure whether you enjoyed the momentum. Definitely worth it even price is bit pricy.

This restaurant used to be good but now it has disappointingly plummeted down the drainage.. Staff run around like headless chicken and the food is tasteless.. If not for the view, the night would be totally wasted.

I hate ginger so i didn't enjoy this at all) -Chicken spring rolls (not much chicken in it at all, i... More

As a Dubai resident I have visited many restaurants in Dubai however Thiptara is in a league of its own. The food was delicious, we ordered the Sea Bream and Thai Green curry, I highly recommend both dishes. The location is incredible with fountain views and the music system is linked to the music of the fountains so there is... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and have not been disappointed. The views of the fountains are amazing and have always managed to get a great table when with visitors. A little on the pricey side, appears to have increased lately but does not stop me from going as it is one of my favourite restaurants on Dubai.... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
