I had many good meals here, just try the the menu. Love that the kitchen has a clear view so you can see your food being cooked.

I would have to go to Thailand to have better food (and even after that, may not find the same quality). Although the location and interior are not breathtaking, the staff and the food make it an incredible dining experience. I will go back, again, and again, and again. Highly recommended!

Authentic, good portions, comprehensive menus. Nothing really to dislike although the cutlery a little eccentric! This place is inside the holiday Inn and quite a surprise to find a restaurant with food this good

I was there on a Friday evening, the restaurant, inside Holiday Inn Hotel in Al Barsha, has a very nice decoration. Food was very good and the portions were big (we had to cancel one dish since we were already full), service was efficient, quick and very nice.
