We sat at the terrace outside to take advantage of the marina view which was great. The seafood tomyam was authentic and spicy mild with two succulent prawns. The tomyam soup whilst flavourful with all the spices was a wee bit salty. Green chicken curry was tasty and again not too spicy. Hot plate prawns were fresh but the source... More

It's clear from the sheer size and breadth of the menu that this would be a jack of all trades pan Asian dining experience.. And it is.. Of note though I'd recommend the chili salted lobster and char kway teow and the duck red curry. Having said that... In terms of Asian options though... It's probably the best available option...

Went there for chinese food. The portion is big but unfortunately the food is tasteless. I will not recommend if you are looking for Chinese food.

Our dinner here was much better than expected, I was quite reluctant as usually these type of franchise like restaurants, with more than one type of cuisine (i.e. thai, mongolian, chinese) fail to deliver and have pretty much standard type of food catered to tourist. For our surprise the curries and noodles that we had were quite good, and the... More

Standard restaurant.. Chinese Food is good here but not on Thai food, However you will wait 30 minutes minimum if you order carry out when you get there. It wasn't until I asked for a refund at 30 minutes that they offered me some soup. Also check your order because they gave me the wrong order and I had to... More

Food was excellent and a great price. We had the Thai red curry and green curry and both were delicious Restaurant itself is small and very plain but it does exactly what it says on the tin There is no bar but it's great for a quick bite to eat especially if you're in the marina Worth a visit

Consistently good Thai/Asian food with friendly service. Indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor terrace with (a bit of a) view of Marina. Big menu, good dim sun and curry/laksa. Little bit on the expensive side for this type of food.

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
