Thiptara should be one of the most romantic restaurants in Dubai. This Thai restaurant has so much going for it – not least, a prime spot on the edge of Souk Al Bahar, with one of the best views of the Dubai Fountain in town. It feels special. Staff offer a warm welcome and the atmosphere is set with dim lighting and dramatic torch fires flickering away in the twilight. But that atmosphere can be instantly smashed by the booming house-pop beats that are piped straight from the sound-system of neighbouring bar Fai. While strictly a Thai restaurant, there are daring fusions that vary in success – a Thai take on dim sum underwhelms. However, more traditional dishes such as som tam and curries are spot on – although expect to pay handsomely for them. But really it’s the peerless location and intimate vibe one forks out for – if only they’d sort that pesky music out. Thiptara

    This was a great venue with excellents standards of food and service. The view was superb - great views of the fountains without the bustle of Souk al Bahar (yet this is only a few minutes away); I would certainly suggest that you book the outside terrace if the weather permits. Really enjoyed the duck dishes - incredibly tender. The meal was good value for money - a similar price to other Thai restaurants in the immediate area but far superior in quality. I would reccommend this venue for both intimate meals for two or for larger groups.

    I was 'taken out to dinner' by friends. LOVLEY experience, the view of the fountains was amazing. The waiting staff on that night seemed to be 'stretched' [as if not enough available], but the staff we did have were very attentative. The food was very very good. I can't star the value because I didn't pay the bill, but from what I ate, I'm sure I got full worth ! I would certainly go there again on another visit to Dubai, and recommend to others.
