This restaurant is tucked in the back of the reception lobby of the Holiday Inn Al Barsha. The restaurant was a little dark for me, but the food was really good. We had a sweet and sour dish and a stir fry that couldn't be faulted especially after two weeks of bland food on a cruise ship. Lots of flavour... More

Everything was sooooo delicious! We had the mixed entree, a seafood curry that was served in a coconut and a chicken mushroom oyster dish. The chicken was so tender it just melted in our mouths. The service was great. Honestly if your close by (lucky for us, just upstairs in the hokiday inn apartments!) You MUST come and give this... More

Sweet people had a wonderful time here with 8 of us. Authentic Thai food. Excellent juicy Beef don't miss. Service was very slow specially the main course took a million years to come after 5 reminders .probably they were ensuring a good appetite.

I was here many times before and it was always good. But now on my visit april 22 I was very disappointed. Service was poor - I was early and not many guests, but the service was bad. Also the food was not what I was used to be. I would not recommend it anymore.

Went there with my business college who just moved to Dubai to discuss business. Was pretty empty at the time (7 PM). We both ordered curry. As I like the green one with shrimps this was my choice. BINGO! Taste was fenomenal. Just exquisite. Highly recommend.

Went for their Friday dim sum "brunch", basically all you can eat dim sum for AED 79 each, a great value meal with soft drinks. Two of us only managed a total of 3 rounds as one course is plenty of food for one person. It's located inside the Holiday Inn and offers great service and value for money...
