“Delicious Asian food in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I discovered this great little restaurant tucked away in Al Barsha Dubai. So easy to get to as we caught the metro to Sharaf DG station and it's just a couple of minutes walk away. I loved the Thai green chicken curry, my husband made a mess & was raving about the Singapore Chili Crab, and my daughter loved the Nasi Goreng. Portions were good size & staff were friendly. Would definately recommed for those that like authentic asian food.

“Disappointing delivery”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I haven't been to the restaurant itself, but did order a delivery on the basis of a flyer left on my door. It took 3 phone calls to pass a fairly simple address, an hour for the food to arrive (weeknight) and it was ordinary at best. The supposed "steamed fish" was actually drowning in oily sauce with a few vegetables, and the boiled rice was tiny. Overpriced for what it was as well. Tip - stick with eat and drink, a quarter of the price and miles better!

“Simple, quick and delightful. 4 Plus rating.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

As a former 10 year Thai / Malaysia / Singapore expat, who is used to eating from Hawker stalls, and Thai street vendors, where plastic tables and chairs are the norm, Chimes delivers the simple delicasies that our family longs. It was a nice find here in Dubai. It does not display the same decor as Singapore, but it doesn't matter when all you care about is the food. The Thai food is spot on (and inparticular the Yam Woon Sen Talay is amazing), the Malaysian curry is excellent and the Hainese Chicken Rice and accompaniment chili sauce, brought back great memories.
If you want fancy service and furniture, go somewhere else, if you want to hear the delightful sounds of the Thai language in the open kitchen, you will not be disappointed.
