Enjoyed a special holiday with family in Dubai. The experience started with walking through the soul markets seeking the boat to the restaurant and uncovered quite a network of shops with all sorts of local items. The gondola-sequel float to dinner was the highlight for the young ones and the ambiance of the place was the perfect backdrop to the... More

I have to start by saying how great the staff were, I called up about 3 times to change the time and they were very accommodating each time. The food was AMAZING! The massaman curry was the best I've ever had and so were the dim sums. We loved everything about this place. I think it's worth the money, especially... More

The fact that you first have to take a boat in the Al Qasr hotel to actually get to the restaurant is already magical and amazing. The food and the drinks add up to the experience. Service was great, we got a nice table by the water. Would go there again!

I visited Pai Thai with my partner and a friend during a visit to Dubai! Spectacular location, and having to get a free boat to its location really makes it quite special! We had reserved a table outside which offered great views and was a lovely setting! Menu was very good with authentic Thai dishes on offer! Food was good... More

We arrived before our booking time, were offered seats in the lounge before table was prepared, got cold wet towels to refresh and were seated in next 10 minutes. Restaurant was empty in the beginning but filled in quickly with guests so you need to have booming in advance to secure table. Arrival from Al Qasr hotel with abra was... More

The food was very average. A typical Thai or Chinese restaurant will probably be better. The prices are way too much for dishes that are so average. The service was below average. They know they don't have to try because the location is great. The location alone still makes it a worthwhile visit. Use a free boat ride to get... More
