Excellent food with cheerful staffs all around small colorful back ground yellow with nice pictures on the wall... food portion was good.. yummy.. but the most spicy food was not spicy at all to me may be due to thai touch .. but was not disappointed at all with anything excellent ....

It's definitely one of the lousiest Thai Restaurant I've been to. We visited the Jumeirah branch during non peak hours and regret checking the place. The fried rice lacks the "thai flavor" I longed and the fried dishes, like calamares, were still dripping with oil when served. :(

One of my fav restaurants in the city! I am absolutely addicted to their extra-spicy Tum-Yum soup (with prawns). YUM!

Black Canyon is a well known chain of coffee shops which are also Thai restaurants. I went to the one at Dubai Festival City. They have two menus, one for coffee, tea, milk shakes and desserts, and the other menu for food, mainly Thai and a couple of other oriental dishes. I tried the salad with grilled beef with cucumber... More

We had dinner at Festival City. The service was friendly and quick. Food was tasty with decent size serves and well priced. Too full to try dessert. It wasn't noisy and we had a casual stroll back to Crowne Plaza.

This review is for the restaurant on The Walk - Jumierah Beach Resort. We love Thai food and really enjoyed our meal here. The restaurant wasn't very busy. The service was good and it was nice and clean. We would definitely return.

Visited the Festival City outlet. Not too busy: warmly greeted: service prompt. Food very tasty & well cooked. Against its peers this is fine & competitively priced. Ideal for one course lower budget type visit. Would readily go again. Obviously if you want better then Mango Tree more likely but as you would expect more of a wallet stretch.

We were warmly greeted, the restaurant was not particulalry busy for a friday night but it had a nice atmosphere. We ordered 7 dishes - we really liked the fact that you can ask the waitress how mild or hot you would like the... More

We visited the Festiival City branch twice this year. The ambience and setting is nice, however, on both occasions, we felt that the cuisine lacked standards of good thai food - portion sizes were average and thai ingredients were substituted for cheaper alternatives that are not normally used in thai dishes. Personally, I found it to be more of a... More
