If you like original Thai cuisine and you do not have time to sit quietly in a restaurant, then Ban Khun Mae is just what you need. Wonderful service and most importantly - very tasty real Thai dishes.

Being a big fan of Thai food I struggled for a long time to find a place that makes good Thai food in Dubai. This beats all other Thai restaurants. It's so so good and cheap! A must try!

Best Thai Isan and Laotian food in town and amazing value for money. The best sign of quality is seeing Lao / Thai people eating there regularly. Every dish is super tasty and prepared to order.

One of the hidden gems in Dubai. Nestled in the Ski Dubai Food Court of Mall of the Emirates lies one the best thai curry restaurants in Dubai. The penang curry is one of the best in Dubai. Reasonable prices also.
