Celebrate Songkran at one of our favourite Thai restaurants
Time Out Dubai staff
Benjarong: The preponderance of wood, quiet live Thai music and slightly old-fashioned finishings lends this Dusit Thani restaurant a traditional, homely feel. Most nights the place is busy with businessmen dining alone or together, as well as the odd married couple. The service is superb: waitresses are friendly and efficient but not overbearing, and laidback enough to give good advice and have a giggle. And the food? The unique rice cracker and minced chicken with peanut sauce makes for a light but tasty appetiser, while a spicy prawn soup is loaded with flavour and gigantic tiger prawns. For the mains, the spice in the red duck curry with pineapple, grape and tomato will gradually crept up on you, while the Massanan chicken curry bears a hint of zing, and is not as thick and heavy as the same dish in lesser eateries. Call 04 343 3333 for more information.

Went to Mango Tree Last Night
Total Disappointment with the service starting from the manager to the rest of the staff excluding the bar tender!!, main courses were poor with its taste and to add that it was costly. I wonder how they got a reward in 2010 by Time Out !!!!
WILL NOT RECOMEND IT ALL AND NOT GOING THERE AGAIN.
ALOT OF CHANGES REQUIRES TO TAKE PLACE.
