Everything about this place was amazing... the food, the setting, the atmosphere. But most of all the staff were fantastic.Especially the female Front Of House who was so accommodating. I had just got engaged before we went to eat here and I could have not asked for a more perfect restaurant. They made the night even more special than it... More

I've heard nothing but good things about this restaurant and therefore decided to take some guests here. The reservation was handled well and our arrival was handled well too. The staff seemed friendly and handled our food allergies well. The food was very good and definitely of a quality that you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber and... More

We went for the Friday brunch. We didn't have a reservation and we showed up about midway through the brunch but the staff were happy to accommodate us. Really nice food, very friendly, welcoming, helpful and efficient staff, lovely drinks and an all-round good time.

Inside the Palace hotel there is a nice veranda by the lake while dinning. It is in the expensive side of the moon but the ambience and service are impeccable. Spicy, tasty, innovative Thai food. Everything was excellent. Servings are generous and the dinner was magnificent. Highly recommended.

The best restaurant location to view the burj khalifa and the fountains. The Thai food and the service was also of a very high standard. Remember to ask for a table outside when the weather is good. Excellent and memorable night out. Prices reflect the quality of the restaurant but are justified for the all round experience.

We were overnight in Dubai as part of an UAE cruise and wanted to see the fountain show whilst having an evening meal. I requested a seat on the terrace but when we arrived it did not have a very good view and we requested a move to another table which was quickly carried out. I should mention that we... More

Visited this Thai restaurant last week and will say we were impressed with the service. Brunch was not the typical buffet style but set menu for starters and mains then buffet for the desserts. The starters were more fish/Seafood based than meat, pleasant enough. My favourite on the mains being the black pepper beef and the Green Thai curry. Reasonable... More

My husband and I truly have nothing but positive things to say about our experience at Thiptara! We were seated at a table right on the water, which was a lovely surprise since I had not requested when making the reservation!

Food standard is good except for couple of dishes which were not... More

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
