The lavishly decorated terrace and traditional culinary sensations culminate in a quintessential Thai experience, where it’s all too easy let your mind wander to the River of Kings. Pai Thai won Best South East Asian Restaurant for the fourth consecutive year.

We went here for our 1 year anniversary. Must take the abra boat ride to and from the restaurant, a great little addition to our dining experience. The food was very good, we love Thai food (got married in Thailand) and enjoyed everything we ordered. The pomelo salad, Tom Kha and the Red Duck Curry were outstanding!

We visited whilst staying at the Al Qasr hotel recently and would visit again. Excellent service from their team and great Thai food.

My husband surprised me with a visit to Pai Thai on my birthday last night, and it was a great experience!

First of all, when you reach Al Qasr (via which you get to Pai Thai), the opulence and grandeur are something of a stunner and even as you are soaking it all in you are asked whether you'd like to arrive at Pai Thai by a buggy or by the boat. Yeah, you heard it right, by boat! I recommend the boat or abra as its called here, coz it adds to the romanticism of Pai Thai; cruising past the twinkling lights and serene looking residences at the hotel, we finally arrived at the restaurant, where we were met with the pleasant hostesses.

Since it was too hot to sit outside on the terrace, we made our way to an inside table. The decor is woody, warm and inviting. We had no complaints about the service, as our table was handled by a very efficient host; he answered all my queries about the menu and made some good suggestions.

The food was delicious, aromatic and fresh, which is what Thai cuisine is all about. The Thai green curry and crispy duck were excellent. For starters the crisy chicken in Pandan leaves is a great choice.

All in all, it was one of the most romantic meals I have had and I would like to go back to it again...if not just for the food, for the very James Bondish boat ride that gets you to the restaurant.
