What a fabulous place. The food was so yummy. My partner was blown away with the xahar lunch and the scenery. Service was ok but the Thai food was spectacular. The salads were oh so good. I enjoy salads but this was something else. I will for sure be taking my friends and family here.

Great food (I recommend the curry). Great cocktails/mocktails. Great service. Great location. Nothing I can complain about, it was my 4th time already. When you love Thai food and have the budget to eat at a thai HOTEL restaurant: go there!

Firstly, if you're getting a taxi here then just ask for the Al Qasr Hotel. Once you arrive you have to wander through part of the hotel. Very opulent and grand surroundings. Then we got whisked away to the restaurant itself on a golf buggy. Listen out for the driver as he will proclaim which restaurant he is dropping at... More

Set within the magnificent surroundings of the Al Qasr Hotel this restaurant is superb. Really nice food, served well and plenty of it. The trip on the small boat around the river through the hotel adds to its appeal. A must visit but allow time to look around the place before getting on your little boat ride.

The restaurant is next to lagoon and is a amazing place for dinner. It is easy to find using the free boat or a buggy. We had very delicious Dim Sum starters and great main course dishes. You can easily choose a mail regardless of your preferences. The restaurant is not overpriced.

If you love Thai food, book a flight to Dubai, get a taxi to Madinat Jumeirah & go to Pai Thai! Everything from the ambience to the food is fantastic. You should try the Thai sampler starter to share & lobster curry with sticky rice. First class. Thank you Pai Thai. See you next year.

We all went for a birthday treat and had called two weeks prior to the visit emphasising which table we wanted and two birthday surprises to be presented simultaneously at the table. Well, upon arriving we were ask to be seated elsewhere and after some discussion with the staff, we got introduced to a table as anticipated. The birthday cakes... More

I loooove thai food and i have become quite picky with my choices of thai restaurants over the years... This one tops them all, by far. Set on a charming (albeit man-built and somehow artificial-looking) canal, the restaurant has got a wide outside terrace which you can reach with a small boat service. Alternative is to walk five minutes from... More

A truly amazing setting in the " Venice of Dubai " . Access is by boat , and outdoor seating in good weather is recommended . Portions are large - perhaps a bit too much especially for the starters . Can recommend the Chicken mince main course , Prawn cakes and red curries . Vegetarian options upon request . The... More
