Expensive restaurant giving regular quality food.
I went yesterday, took my boyfriend there for his BDay dinner thinking it would be awesome and i felt it is a total rip off.
A restaurant of that reputation needs to work on the menu and the quality of the dishes.
The service, described as amazing on timeout reviews was horrible, they brought me the wrong order, so they took everything back to the kitchen and food came back one hour later.
in addition, the waiter wasnt very helpful when we asked about the menu.
we spent 500 dhs and i totally regret it. Dubai has many thai restaurants with same or way better curries than the one we ate there.
as a conclusion, only go there if you want to get an abra ride..

Pai Thai’s best feature is the ambiance! My fiancée and I were invited to the restaurant on a Saturday night. We took the boat ferry and the ride was just surreal. We docked in front of the restaurant where we were greeted cheerfully and handed fresh wet towels before being escorted to our table that was on the terrace on the water front. I must say this is the best setup I’ve seen in Dubai so far.
The food in general was very good. The complimentary prawn crackers were really good and the sweat chili sauce that came with it just perfect. Starters included green mango salad that was delicious and very refreshing, fried seafood on lemon grass skewers that was also exquisite. The glass noodle salad was a bit mediocre though.
The soups were out of this world, we had two soups between the four of us, the prawn tom yam was just perfectly balanced with galngal, kifir lime, lime leaves, fresh prawns, a hint of coriander and lemon grass!! Flavors that blend in a wonderfully tantalizing broth! The chicken coconut milk soup was equally splendid.
The main course was the chicken green curry with two Thai eggplant varieties was good but not the best in town. For one thing, the curry paste was not flavorful enough and not spicy enough (we asked for medium got very mild). It was also a bit thin. The barracuda deep fried fillet on the other hand was divine. Crunchy and deep fried to perfection just to be smothered with a chili-lime sauce that really complimented the flavor. The last main dish was a seafood pudding flavored with lemon grass, lime leaves and chili and steamed in banana leaves sealed with a wooden toothpick. To say the least, it was truly tasty and exotic innovative dish.
To finish the meal, we all shared the mango with sticky rice and coconut cream dessert which was perfect. Sticky rice steaming hot and perfectly cooked with cool mango (I think they actually used the Thai variety) and the creamy sauce laden with creamy goodness and coconut flavor to compliment.
Throughout the meal we were entertained with soft yet live Thai music and dancing. This added to the surrealism of the experience. While not the best, Pai Thai is surely among the best, the surrounding is definitely superior. I’d definitely go there again.

Location excellent, beautiful views and great weather!
A lovely Thai dancer for entertainment.
However; terrible service, the restaurant manager wouldn’t accept guests with any form of discount card or voucher. She insisted that we couldn’t pay on the spot but had to charge to our hotel room.
The food was average.
The dessert options were poor
Everything tasted like nutmeg.
Overall, very disappointing.
