Although I hadn't thought to request it, we were shown to a table right next to the water, where we were treated to the fantastic water display every 30 minutes. The service was initially on the slow side - I really don't like to have to wait too long to get a drink while I look through the menu. However,... More

Arrived slightly late for our outside table, and despite the rain, thunder and lightning was one of the most enjoyable meals we have ever had, table was rather wet when we arrived but was dried and cleaned immediately. We had front seats with the best views of the fountains in Dubai. Food was fabulous, we had the chicken and beef... More

Our concierge at our hotel booked dinner for us dining outside on the verandah at Thiptara....very romantic overlooking the lake and watching the fountains. Food was great except the thai green curry...very strong tasting as if was just the curry paste. Rest of the food was excellent. We complained 3 times. The first and second time the waiter/waitress didn't come... More

Service was slow to begin with. Once the wine was served and the order was taken the staff were attentive and happy to help. The food was delicious and my daughter and I enjoyed our different meals. We had a good evening especially enjoying the fountains from our outside table.

A wonderful setting with fantastic views of the Dubai Fountains (ask for an outside table) which made a spectacular setting to a wonderful Thai meal. Pricey but worth it.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
