Really good meal here. Views of fountain and Burj Khalifa. Great menu with a plethora of tasty options. For me i couldn't go past the soft shell crab. Very tasty. Great wine list with some decent pairings. Staff pleasant and efficient.

Thiptara is part of Palace hotel facing the creek and The Burj Khalifa. The food is authentic and very tasty as we almost ordered everything from the menu. The chicken satay and beef Pan Ang were my favorites.
