Great food, original cooked and prepared in frotn of your eyes. Probably the dancer is not necessary but is ok. All the menu is good, they also serve wines.

A good Thai restaurant attached to the Westin complex. If you stay here you should go here and enjoy close to genuine Thai food. A bit expensive, but with good atmosphere and alcohol license.

Took some visitors here for dinner. The food was excellent and portions were plentiful, however the service wasn't great. Several times I had to try and catch a server's attention, which was disappointing given that it was not busy. Thoroughly enjoyed the chicken satay and the stir fried chicken with cashews and chili paste.

This would easily qualify as one of the worst meals we ever had in Dubai. It certainly would qualify as one of the worst Thai meals we had anywhere. Nothing tasted like it should. Nothing tasted good. To add insult to injury, the service was sub standard. Slow, unresponsive and inattentive. Our main course sat at the kitchen window for... More

Having had some brilliant experiences at the Italian and Spanish outlets at the Westin we were looking forward to some value and taste at the Thai restaurant. This was by far our worst meal and the service was also absent. We now realise why it's kept so dark.....

We went for a family dinner, and had a lovely outdoor table on the patio, with Thai dancer performing nearby. The food is all very good and uniform standard: from the pomelo salad to the curries, to the stir fries.The soups are good too, especially the tom yum. Lovely place with great setting for Thai food, and not unreasonable considering... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
