The food was superb and the service equally as good. We sat inside as we wanted to be cooler but the views from the terrace are beautiful. It's not cheap but worth it for a lovely meal.

Nice setting, excellent food, friendly staff. Ask for a table outside. Book in advance as it can get crowded. The duck curry is my favourite.

What a fabulous place. The food was so yummy. My partner was blown away with the xahar lunch and the scenery. Service was ok but the Thai food was spectacular. The salads were oh so good. I enjoy salads but this was something else. I will for sure be taking my friends and family here.

Great food (I recommend the curry). Great cocktails/mocktails. Great service. Great location. Nothing I can complain about, it was my 4th time already. When you love Thai food and have the budget to eat at a thai HOTEL restaurant: go there!

Firstly, if you're getting a taxi here then just ask for the Al Qasr Hotel. Once you arrive you have to wander through part of the hotel. Very opulent and grand surroundings. Then we got whisked away to the restaurant itself on a golf buggy. Listen out for the driver as he will proclaim which restaurant he is dropping at... More

Set within the magnificent surroundings of the Al Qasr Hotel this restaurant is superb. Really nice food, served well and plenty of it. The trip on the small boat around the river through the hotel adds to its appeal. A must visit but allow time to look around the place before getting on your little boat ride.

The restaurant is next to lagoon and is a amazing place for dinner. It is easy to find using the free boat or a buggy. We had very delicious Dim Sum starters and great main course dishes. You can easily choose a mail regardless of your preferences. The restaurant is not overpriced.

If you love Thai food, book a flight to Dubai, get a taxi to Madinat Jumeirah & go to Pai Thai! Everything from the ambience to the food is fantastic. You should try the Thai sampler starter to share & lobster curry with sticky rice. First class. Thank you Pai Thai. See you next year.
