Description: AboutAuthentic and Exquisite Thai CuisineDescriptionCreating its presence in the year 2009 in Muscat, Oman with the launch of two of its restaurants in prominent locations of the city - Al Khuwair and The Wave Muscat, Shang Thai has become a favourite haunt for Muscat residents. With the success of Muscat, Shang Thai opened its doors to Dubai residents on the bustling street of Sheikh Zayed Road, and lives up to the mark of serving an excellent dose of tried-and-tested Thai recipes.Our cuisine and the love we put into it...The restaurant offers some of the most exquisite Thai delicacies in a manner that is freshly and organically cooked, just like it is at the homes in Thailand. Exceptionally flavorful, every dish has a texture and essence of its own, owing to its traditional cooking method, spelling out a recipe that entices the taste buds. With its most delightful and extensive menu, Shang Thai offers much more than just the popular Tom Yum Goong or Pad Thai, steering choices to an all- embracing fusion of flavours.Humbled being Dubai's only 'All Women Chef's' diner...Shang Thai holds a reputation of being Dubai's first 'All-Women Chefs' diner where an all-women team of culinarians hailing from the homelands of Thailand run the show with utmost fervency and remarkability. The team in the kitchen is led by the zealous and proficient Chef de Cuisine, Aphaimsee Phaprom, fondly addressed as 'Mamma,' owing to her passion in creating traditional and innovative Thai recipes and her wise and sagacious attributes of managing a team of experienced kitchen brigade.The insides and the aesthetics...This contemporary fine-dining diner makes no pretense with its ambience. The restaurant professes no culinary acrobatics or dazzle by way of decor and aesthetics. The natural lighting displays a sense of tranquility and calmness, enabling a distinctive mood. Lime green being the chosen color adds to the balmy and fresh outlook of the restaurant interiors. A unique feature that adds to the ambience is of patrons having the option to choose from an open seating or a cozy private booth, adding to the exclusivity of the dining experience. The authenticity is not merely restricted to the food served at Shang Thai but also to each element, design and decor that went about in making this specialty-cuisine restaurant. The delightful atmosphere is enhanced with the zen and meditative music in the backdrop, making for a comforting setting.

Tried out Shang Thai for the first time and I must say that I was impressed. The hostess, Vinny, was pleasing and she helped in selecting the dishes we wanted to try. Taste was absolutely authentic (the kitchen has a see through glass window and you can see that the chefs are all Thai). Right down from the soup to the dessert, we enjoyed it. The prices are a bit expensive though although portion sizes are decent ehough for most of the dishes.

Shang Thai is just off Dubai's very busy, Sh Zayed Road in an area fast becoming a little restaurant and cafe hub. Clean, spacious with pastel colors, the restaurant is very pleasant. We have dined here almost every month since it opened,last summer. Their soups, Pad thai and other Thai staples are excellent. But special mention must go to their, Bamboo Fish is clearly a masterpiece. Lightly spiced, tender, perfectly done. The service is patient, helpful and competent. Great experience every time.

We stopped in for a light lunch on a Friday and had some good soup. Contrary to the previous review the children were screaming full blast and actually this was the only thing we didn't like. Overall authentic food, maybe a bit too expensive given the location.

Wanted to share an experience at a restaurant today!!

Had my worst experience at Shang Thai jumeriah. We had gone for the Friday brunch as a group of 4 families. The kids were sitting at a separate table away from us.

The manager of the outlet kept walking to the kids who were laughing at their table and snarled asking them to keep quiet. They werent misbehaving or being a nuisance just happy to be with each other! From my experience Friday brunches are for families.

Then he walked over and picked up my 3 year old son and placed him on his chair and scolded him!!. My son burst into tears. When I walked over to the manager and asked why he touched my son, he said its his restaurant and the kids should have been silent!! He warned me saying he will ask us to leave. I was shocked at the episode!! Never had this happen at any restaurant anywhere!!
