A wonderful restaurant. Fab food, great service. Highly recommend it. Very helpful as I am vegetarian. We commented to our server how great the food was and she called out the chef.

Paychaylen has been the only deception of our stay at the Anantara Eastern Mangroves. The Thai restaurant is meant to be a must in each Anantara hotel but this was a total fail, an epic fail like my son likes to say. First, with the overall ambiance - Jazz background music is lovely in a lounge but not what one... More

An excellent meal. Decor not as flash some but food is tasty & the service is great. We tried other Thai restaurants in Abu Dhabi but we enjoyed this the most. My husband loves spicy food & this restaurant did his food exactly as he requested which shows they listened. An enjoyable evening.

First Thai resto in the UAE to have served Miang Kham. All foods tasted good, staff were warm and attentive. Good for an ordinary dinner night.

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
