Time Out Says

For many Dubai residents, heading to Palm Jumeirah represents something of a journey, especially to a venue almost at the end of the Crescent. Mekong, however, is worth the drive. Set in the beautiful Thai-style Anantara resort, the dining room is a grand space, all red and gold with vibrant Asian imagery on the walls. Service is welcoming without being overbearing and if you need help navigating the menu, which mostly features cuisine from Thailand, but takes detours to Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and China, it is there. You can expect to pay prices in line with the super location, especially if you’ve eaten any of the dishes in their home countries. Thai dishes really shine, and if you’re not too adventurous, the curries are great, especially the massaman, which has a rich, creamy sauce and the ever-present hum of Thai basil. Deep-fried sea bass is another highlight, as are the various dim sum. This former Time Out award-winning restaurant isn’t somewhere you’d eat weekly, so get dressed up, try something new and enjoy.
