I need to emphasize on the food a lot on this review. That is because the ambiance is a bit dark/quiet and a bit boring. I guess when the terrace is open that would not be a challenge any more. Having a lot of places to have inexpensive Thai food in Dubai makes the choice a bit harder to dine... More

If you like Thai food, you should go here. Coming from NYC and having eaten a lot of Thai food, this place blows NYC Thai restaurants out of the water. Great service and food. The papaya salad and stir fried rice with shrimp as well as the chicken with cashew nuts were all delicious.

Food was good and quite authentic. Given you pay per head, suggestion is getting local fish grilled, recommend the Sherry which was done very well along with the prawn pad Thai. Overall good experience and cool layout

This restaurant accommodated us at short notice (11 including kids). This is Thai cuisine at its finest, though there are many Asian fusion dishes in the menu. We loved every mouthful and the service is excellent. Very attentive staff who go out of their way to make dinner an absolute delight.

On arrival i liked the restaurant lay out, comfortable seating with the open kitchen (glass house) in the middle. We ordered the jungle beef curry, stir fried jumbo prawns with chili and garlic, mixed veg and thai fried rice. While waiting for our dishes we received some mini prawn crackers and a sweet chili dip which were very nice. Our... More

The Spice Emporium is a tastefully decorated Thai restaurant in the Westin Mina Seyahi. There’s a quaint little food cart at the entrance which always makes me believe the restaurant has a street food bias set in the lap of luxury.  But that’s not entirely true as this is very much a traditional restaurant in the Thai Kitchen mould as...

One of the not so many places in Dubai that you can say the food taste very authentic. The potion is big and the service is at no fault. My favourite dish would be the steam seafood in curry paste. There are only few restaurants in Dubai that offer this dish so do try it if you have a chance.... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
