It's my first time here since many of my friends recommended that it's the best Thai restaurant in town (They've been to many Thai restaurants and they voted Royal Budha as the best one). When I first entered, I hear Thai music (yes, I am Thai). I was impressed and thinking that my dinner's gonna be amazing, and when they... More

What a spoiler on our Anniversary evening..we went for the Dimsum Friday and the service was one of the worst we have experienced. The servers behaved as if they are doing us a favor by serving, would like to mention we are paying for the service plus food. In the mid of the food we waited for good 40 minutes... More

After living in Thailand for 2 years, I know what authentic Thai food taste like so my expectations were high! Well this place did not disappoint! We had sea bass, pineapple fried, and cashew chicken. It was excellent. In my opinion. I would recommend the spicy glass noodle salad...delicious. They also have a nice selection of wines. Service was outstanding!!!!

A modern-style Thai restaurant inside a Holiday Inn hotel. They have a fast and attentive service, and the portions seemed authentic and they were really tasty. The price level was a bit high in my opinion. Most importantly, they do serve alcohol.

I have been here 3 glorious times and without a doubt, this is absolutely the best Thai restaurant I have ever been here in Dubai. The taste of the food at this restaurant is catered to the Thai platter so that alone makes all the food authentic. They have unique Thai dishes that I ate regularly when I lived in... More

If you don't care about sitting with a view and simply about the food, this place is the best Thai Restaurant in town. Impeccable service and real Thai food from different regions of Thailand.
