Pai Thai is a must have dining experience when booking for Dubai or any resort in Emirates! Light, tasty and invigorating dishes burst with the traditional flavours of Thailand. There are plenty of choices here, from starters like sun-dried crispy beef with coriander, garlic and chilli sauce, to mains like river prawns with creamy red curry sauce, kaffir lime leaves...

For an abra experience, you can ride going to the hotel but we waited for more than 15 minutes to get an abra to the restaurant. But the food is great!

Simply amazing Thai food. This is the restaurant that I visit every time I go to Dubai. The food is delicious, and the service excellent. A reservation is essential as the restaurant is very popular in the resort.

The boat to the venue is a perfect touch! The food is absolutely fantastic, quite possible the best Thai food I have experienced! The service was fantastic, we ordered the staff recommendations and they exceeded expectations. Such a beautiful evening! Would definitely go back!

The waterside setting of this restaurant is really lovely. However, the food was very very average. Sauces were quite stodgy and nothing had that lovely fresh vibrant flavour that you normally get with Thai food. We asked the waiter to chose for us so presume he chose the dishes that he thought were best so I wouldn't have wanted to... More

The best Thai resto in Dubai. This is where we bring our friends and relatives who comes here for a visit, it has become part of the itinerary, literally. Everyone gets to see a closer look of the Burj Al Arab while enjoying the abra ride on the way to the resto. The staff are friendly, great ambience, delicious food.... More

Pad Thai is one of my favourite Thai restaurant in Dubai. The food is excellent, the choice of dishes wide enough to satisfy any thai food lover and the setup of the restaurant is absolutely unique with the inner open patio and of course the wonderful wooden deck over the waters of Madinat Jumeirah canals. A must try for couples... More

First you go through the beautiful Al Qasr Hotel, never disappointing. Then you must decide if you would rather take a golf buggy or an abra boat ride to get to the restaurant. Always take the abra, you have lovely journey on the waterways through the Madinat. From the minute you get off the boat at Pai Thai you are... More
