  • Fantastic venue, great service and food
    The terrace affords an amazing view of the magnificent Dubai fountains, matched by superb service from our waitress Ha This who guided us expertly through the menu in such an engaging and pleasant manner. The food was then excellent try the Black Cod in banana leaves was excellent.

  • Location Good but that’s all!
    We went here on a recommendation for my wife’s 50th birthday. We booked it directly with the hotel who asked if we were celebrating any special occasion. On arrival several members of staff passed us waiting and ignored us. Very poor at a 5 star hotel. There was no mention of the birthday celebration throughout despite it being on our booking. We were then taken through to the outside seating which has fantastic views of the Burj Khalifa and fountains. Food was ok but nothing special. It is expensive but the £20 bowl of rice isn’t what you’re paying for - it’s the view that costs the money. Staff were ok but they take customers for granted as they know their location will keep people attending. Saying this there are numerous other restaurants that have the same view so try these and hopefully Thiptara will then up their game. It won Best Thai in Dubai for 2020 - best location maybe but not best food!

  • Order starters first and then see if you want a main.
    This place has everything going for it. Location, service and great views of the fountain but the food for me was a real let down. I was lucky because I ordered a selection of starters and thought I would decide on the main later which I do a lot in Asian food. But the food for me was terrible and I would honestly say 1 star would be pushing it. I love food from the street vendors to fine dinning and would just go on the side of caution with this place. It might of been an off day with the chef because it gets great reviews. My advise is try a few starters first before you jump straight in. On a plus the service was great.
