Get Set Gobble

Ambiance | Stepping into the restaurant, yo will feel you have been transported straight to Thailand. They have a gorgeous traditional ambiance having paid special attention to detail form the to — the crockery. Melodious Thai music being played live in the background complemented by some beautifully flavoured dishes ensure that you end up having a good time. Chose to dine in one of their private rooms or sit by the window and enjoy beautiful views of the Burj Kahlifa…either way, we aren’t complaining.

Food | Personally, I always begin my Asian meals with Khow Greb Goong or Prawn crackers….love dipping them into the roasted chilli sauce. So if like me you’re tired of ordering the same old papaya salad give their pomello salad a try. The Yum Som O is beautifully flavoured with a sweet chilli mix that subdues the strong flavour of the pomello. It was such a lovely change for me to try this.

IMG_9713If you are in the mood for sharing, we recommend you order the Hot pot that comes in 3 options, Vegetarian, Seafood or Meat. Be prepared to indulge in a huge bowl of simmering hot soup to which are added ingredients like glass noodles, tofu, mushrooms, morning glory, egg, fish cake, chicken, prawns and more at the table. Giving it a couple of minutes to cook, the server helps you out during the entire process to pour the hot soup additionally flavoured with a spicy tofu paste. There is a lovely balance of flavours in the soup and you certainly won’t be complaining about the quantity.

Their Goong Phad Med Mamuang, which are  prawns tossed in a chilli sauce with cashews, is simply out of this world. Pair this with the Goey Cee Mee which are crispy egg noodles loaded with a variety of veggies for a lovely combo.

To sip ask for the Lemongrass Tea that is beautifully fragrant or the fresh Thai Coconut water served with a pretty orchid on top. If you are full beyond compare by the end of the meal, simply order a portion of the Ice Cream Kra-Ti to finish on a sweet note. The coconut ice cream is absolutely delicious with pieces of fresh coconut inside as well that are complemented well by the savoury roasted peanuts. Delish!

So head on over and take your taste buds straight to heaven!
