Thiptara is by far one of my favourite dining experiences in Dubai. The food and service are consistently good. It is on the pricey side if alcohol included but a nice treat. The view of the fountains is incomparable.More

How long will it take to get to burj khalifa from Thiptara? Is it shorter to walk through Dubai mall to get to burj khalifa? or shall we take a taxi ? We are planning to book a table at 6pm and buy burj khalifa ticket for 9pm. Thank you,
