A great Thai restaurant in The Palace Hotel, which is a great hotel by itself. The food is delicious and the view to the fountains is just superb.

The restaurant is placed in the middle of the Burj lake which offers you amazing views on both the Dubai Fountain and Burj Khalifa. Recommend to take a menu. Especially the Wague Beef dishes are amazing

Fantastic Thai cuisine - the best Thai outside of Thailand. Sensational views on the fountain show every 30 minutes. But what really turned the evening into our best in Dubai were the waiters Dilli and Amin!

Returned to this incredibly located restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by the elevated level of food quality since my visit a number of years ago. Otherwise, the high prices would not have been justified

The best Lamb Massaman curry I've ever had. The ambiance was amazing and not to mention the water fountain show was a great attraction as well. I found the waiters to be a bit snooty at times, but the food was amazing.

What a fantastic Thai restaurant with epic views of the Burj and fountains. We were treated like royalty and couldn’t ask for better service or food. They even accommodated my wife’s allergy to certain spices. Cannot wait to go back
