Fabulous setting and decor. If not staying in the property but one of the others you can get to it via buggy or abra. There is an indoors and outdoors area and the weather was nice enough to sit outside on the terrace that overlooks the waterways. The service to start was excellent but as the place filled up it...

This place is so wonderful and beautiful. You take a small boat out to get there through beautiful canals at Madinat. The food at the restaurant was absolutely awesome, best thai food we ever had. Our only problem was that we felt like the staff forgot about our table in the corner all the time.

Beautiful little boat trip from Al Qasr to Pai Thai set the scene - although pricey, the food is excellent, and they also offers deals such as 3 courses for 280AED (not bad for a restaurant of this standard and the quality of food). Definitely worth a visit if you are tourists, or have guests from home visiting. It's absolutely... More

I have visited this place multiple time this month and never seem to get enough of the selection they offer. Everything was excellent and there are so many varieties to choose from.

Pai thai was recommended to us by several people so we were really looking forward to it. Sadly we left feeling a little disappointed. I starters arrived before we even got our drinks, seems they were forgotten as we had to ask for them again. I felt the spring roll starter was from a box, and not home made. The... More

Vegetarian friendly menu, great taste, good service and excellent ambience! Negative is the wait to return to Al qasr, we wanted to take a buggy back, waited almost 20 mins to be told no buggys are available and it's advisable to take the boat back to the hotel!

It is my 3rd time to Pai Thai, it is a part of heaven I can say, quiet only music in background and good atmosphere. Along with excellent food and drinks come's the staff which are extremely devoted and polite. Highly recommend to be there at least 1 time in your life.

They skipped one of our orders. And I can... More

Restaurant in a wonderful setting, transport via boat smooth and nice. Wide selection of food of good quality (but not outstanding), drinks rather overpriced. All in all a pleasant evening in a very nice location.
