With tables delicately littered around the Dubai Marine Beach Resort's luminous pool, it'll take some concentration not to fall in during your meal. Thai Bistro has many things going for it: it's good value, the food is impressive enough to go back for and the setting is the ideal place for a date or romantic dinner. Appetisers include deep-fried squid with salt and chilli, chicken wrapped in pandanus leaves, chicken satay and crab spring rolls, though there is an option to try them all as taster appetisers. There are a great deal of stir-fried dishes to choose from including numerous variations on duck, lobster, chicken and cashew, as well as red and green curries with your choice of seafood, prawns, chicken or beef. The pineapple fried rice with shrimp is fluffy and fruity and substantial enough to stand on its own. Still hungry? Devour the deep-fried banana and ice-cream dessert or go for something more traditional and try the water chestnuts in coconut milk.
Open 7pm-11.30pm. Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa, www.dxbmarine.com (04 346 1111).
