This was my first experience with Thai food and was not bad at all. Service is excellent and attentive.

There was a Thai restaurant on site. Went to look, all beautifully furnished & great décor but no-one there so decided not to go that evening, went down the following day to re-look at the menu, we both love thai food, have travelled there many times and also cook Thai, so always looking to see if anything a little more...

I have eaten Thai food around the world. From street dives to luxury restaurants. This place is quite good and I found the food to have just the right level of kick and taste. Enjoy!

We had a lovely meal here. The food was beautiful and the staff very attentive. There weren't many diners but we didn't feel rushed at all.

The "starter" offered by the chef was the best suprise! I have been to many Thai restaurants but this was uniquely different. Otherwise the ambiance and food were great quality. The location of the restaurant is excellent.

Quality of food was so so ! Restaurant is nicely set with good deco. Liked the desserts and the chef made a extra touch to it. Noodle dish was not as good as in Thailand but acceptable for UAE

As we were late to get to the restaurant for dinner (10:45pm), they kept the service open and accommodated us for dine-in. All the recommendations were fabulous. We felt as if we were transported back to Thailand.

Had a meal here and I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was very well cooked, the curries had a good heat and the noodles were perfectly cooked. Even the dim sum platters were good and seemed to be home made. The betel nut leaves as an amuse bouche were very tasty and quite novel. Well worth a visit.

Don't be turned off by my title. If you're into good food - come here! We are regulars as it doesn't get better than this for excellent Thai food in Abu Dhabi. However, if you want somewhere dark and moody for a date, this isn't your place.

Service: 10/10 Atmosphere: 10/10 Furniture: 9/10 Cleanliness: 9/10 Welcoming: 10/10 Taste: 8/10 Really liked the place with a modern touch of thai hospitality. Fancy stuff!! The other thing I enjoyed was the live performance of thai music. It was calm and soothing.
