Small Thai restaurant but very nice since entrance of Anantara to Pachaylen. We were escorted by Thai lady name Molly and the waiter Thai i could not remember name. They both well take care and friendly service. Food was nice and fresh as well as cozy seat and relax ambience.

It was a nice evening spent at the restaurant; staff was very courteous; being vegetarian we were suggested something different to try and not the regular green sauce and red sauce curries..the stir fried tofu was indeed good.

Lovely ambiance and service. We shared the starter .. I cant remember the name but it's a sharing dish where you have a variety of fillings you use to create your own ' mouthful'. Sounds bizarre but the staff will tell you what is it. Best part of the evening. Main course were very tasty with fresh flavours.

Unlike 'liocdxb', our experience was totally brilliant. We have eaten here many times and we have never had a bad experience. As I cannot eat food which is too spicy, I love eating here as the chef's will cook whatever I choose to my preference, so I don't feel as if I'm missing out on the Thai experience. Everything was...

The food was superb with authentic Thai flavours and excellent quality ingredients. Also, great service, good ambience, reasonable prices, good wine list and easy parking. Another good thing was the roof top bar where we went to a pre-dinner drink.

Paychaylen has been the only deception of our stay at the Anantara Eastern Mangroves. The Thai restaurant is meant to be a must in each Anantara hotel but this was a total fail, an epic fail like my son likes to say.

An excellent meal. Decor not as flash some but food is tasty & the service is great. We tried other Thai restaurants in Abu Dhabi but we enjoyed this the most. My husband loves spicy food & this restaurant did his food exactly as he requested which shows they listened. An enjoyable evening.
