The royal buddha is situated in Hoilday inn barsha. The hospitality of Mr Prashanth and their team were out of words. I would like to highlight this because we were too humbled to see how they treat the customers . About the ambience, its dim...lighted themed with punch of red colours on dark ambience. Chef also was down to earth person to come to us and understand what we wanted. Making it peaceful place. So lets dig into the menu. 1. Som tum goong- papaya salad with fish sauce. It was so fresh, served with prawns. Presentation wise was so good. Tasted very nice. Not strong fish sauce flavours. Just the right feel. 2. Gai reu nuea satay- chicken skewers served with pickles and their peanut sauce. Needed to be consumed immediately when hot. Good food. Loved the peanut, pickly combi with satay. 3. Gaeng phed- its seafood thai red curry with good coconut flavour. Served on coconut shell and on the stand. Very beautifully presented and quantity wise was good for three. 4. Goong phad phong kra ree - this is also prawns curry and served on the plate and beautifully presented. Loved this curry the most. Prawns cooked just right. 5. Khao niew ma muang-dessert- mango sticky pudding. Something you shd never miss when u r in thailand or coming to thai restaurant. Loved every bit of it. I swear you shd try this out. 6. Blooming tea - not a strong tea. Just the aromatic feel of the tea. Makes it all peaceful after having heavy meal. 7. Siam tom yum- spicy special thailand drink. We chose the medium spice and it was perfect spice drink with the dishes. 8. Dimsum- for those who love momos, this dimsum is definitely ur choice. They have unlimited dimsums as well. We were served with 5 dimsums of different flavours. Chicken, prawns, supreme prawns and best of all, the bao. Yumm. Soft baos and i simply loved it. 9. Thaliand coconut drink- thailand is famous for coconut. So why not try it out 🙂. 10. Khao phad sapparot goong- pineapple fried rice with prawns served in pineapple 🍍 to give such a drastic beautiful presentation 😍😍. presentation was soo good not to break open it and loved the rice flavours. Im out of words.More

Tucked away in the holiday inn at al Barsha is a little slice of Thailand... With a dimly lit interior and and clean lines, this place is warm and welcoming. the staff who assisted us Mr prasanth was very attentive and friendly. *Drink-A fresh tasting...drink with Lemon grass, lemon leaves and red chili, This gives you the right amount of heat to enjoy. *Coconut- Fresh king coconut water severed in shell. *Starters - Gai Reu Nuae Satay- yummy chicken satay with the best compliment of Peanut paste. - Som Tu, Goong sod- Papaya salad, reminded me so much of being by the beach in Thailand -Assorted Dim Sum - flavorful steamed dim sum and Boa Mains- Their signature dish, which i would recommend is the Goong phad phong kra ree Prawns in a thick turmeric curry. -Gaeng phed- beautifully severed in a coconut shall is the famous Red thai curry. - Pineapple rice can you believed served in a pineapple... and last not not least the crowning glory of any thai food and my personal favorite dessert the Sticky rice and mango.. sweet mango served with warm sticky rice topped with sweeten thick coconut cream.. just yummy. And the close this amazing lunch off with some jasmine tea. Overall this was an amazing experience and for all those who love thai food do visit this place. The Chef- Namtap who was the sweetest person by the way is from Thailand herself.More

The Covid killed this place! I was a regular customer and this used to be one of my favorite Thai in Dubai. But what I experienced last evening was horrible! Even not a red Thai curry on the menu? What s wrong here? You need...to ask for it otherwise you will not get it! A Thai panang is s traditional red Thai curry in Thailand! Even available in the food court in Dubai mall.... next door! Once you get it.....new surprise! Be prepared for the new “standard” of the house......you can expect only four small Schrimps in your plate! 🤨 Same experience for my guests......whatever you take chicken of beef..... If you take a salad...... you ll get the rice! No worry! All in all.... Better to go for a food court next door..... you will get at least 7 pieces of meat in your plate! I don t intend to go there again despite so many years of good service! This was simply a rip off!More

All aspects of the meal were delicious and the portions are very generous. Don't be put off by the area or basic decor. The restaurant is a must to visit. I will definitely come back. I asked for a Thai green curry to be very...spicy. My mouth is on fire but that's how I love it. Top marks to the chef.More
