The brunch was amazing, we sat outside with views of the fountains. Everything with the exception of the desserts were served to the table. The food was amazing and the staff were really attentive. It was a very chilled brunch experience. Would definitely go back one evening as the views of the fountains are amazing. Also, compared to the prices... More

We booked brunch with the family on Friday just after noon. Lovely setting (be it manmade) in an attractive restaurant with great views of the the (possibly best ever!) fountains. The brunch food included served cold starters, warm starters & mains and buffet puddings - all very good. Service was delightful, especially accommodating with younger children. Drinks package also good.... More

Thiptara is not shy of providing the best of Thai food, all served either attentive staff. The restaurant is a fine dining restaurant and has a posh feel to it. The view of Burj Khalifa, Dubai Opera House and most importantly the dancing fountains are the best you can ever get. Enjoy an outdoor romantic dinner (while the weather allows... More

Mediocre food of varying tepid temperature with ill trained staff that made us wait 25 minutes before serving drinks and despite 4 polite requests and reminders still get it wrong. Not good value and certainly not coming back. Table not being cleared and the list of faults continues. I don't blame the staff but they should stick to serving in... More

Booked after reading reviews and was not disappointed, the food was of a very high standard for Thai food and the service was exceptional, it is a bit pricey, but worth the value, especially if you get a table outside and watch the fountains dance the night away whilst you eat your lovely food. The wine choice is very good... More

What an outstanding and great night spent at Thiptara! Not many dining experience can you match the atmosphere where you're watching a Bellagio-like fountain display under the Burj Khalifa. I really enjoyed all the fresh herbs in their food. Thank you Thiptara!

Beautiful setting, greatest Thai food outside Thailand. I ve dined at many Thai restaurants around the world, but this is the best ever. The food tastes nice and fresh, beautifully presented and nice size portions. The price reflects this but well worth it. Definitely a must for Thai food lovers

Thiptara by far is the best Thai restaurant in Dubai (and I have been to many). From the friendly staff to the authentic ingredients everything is just perfect. We visit at least once a month and its a stop for any occasions - reunion with friends/family or a romantic night out. It never disappoints! Should be on the list of... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
