Smiling BKK
Try Fun, Casual Thai At Smiling BKK
You'll find Smiling BKK tucked away on a side street near Safa Park, a spot where yummy food is topped with good humour and superb service. The cheekily named dishes are reasonably priced and you can expect pages from gossip mags as place mats. Participate in special theme nights such as 'Sing for your Supper,' which embodies the spirit that sets Smiling BKK apart. Ultimately though, it's delicious Thai food that will make you a return customer.

  • Respectable Thai food
    Smiling BKK is an authentic Thai restaurant that relocated from Garhoud not too long ago and now resides in the Al Safa area, which makes them the only Thai brand in the area I believe. While there are many Thai restaurants in Dubai, Smiling BKK is one of the few that is authentic and some what pocket friendly. You know a restaurant is authetnic or not by their menu offerings, by that I mean if you see the same dishes that you can find at every restaurant, chances are they are catering to local tastes. Smiling BKK have some dishes that are not even attempted nor thought of by these restaurants that sets them apart from the rest and offers a tasty experience. I had the Thai beef noodle soup with clear soup (which wasn’t so clear) and the dish tasted of something you can normally only find in Thailand, but SBKK has brought that to Dubai. The menu is massive and is a challenge to try one of each dish. The menu seems to not have changed since the last time I tried it over a year ago so it probably won’t change any time soon, which means I have time for the challenge and I am up for it.

  • Odd atmosphere, hard to get to & quality of food not great
    Me and my girlfriend visited the Smiling BKK as Thai is our favourite cuisine. The atmosphere was a little odd with a random / all over the place decor. There's a fine line between hip-trendy and slouch & lazy. Smiling BKK felt like the latter. We were one of the few in the restaurant and that is no coincidence. Service was okay however food quality was questionable. The restaurant is located away from all the attractions with no real interesting things to do nearby. Do consider this, specially if you're gettings cabs instead of driving yourself. It seems like the place

  • Never fails to deliver
    Went for an early lunch, as I haven’t been there for many years I was not sure what to expect, however the food was as good as I remembered, still very good priced the Thai lady friendly. I would say this place has Thai food as authentic it could be outside Thailand.
