It has a great view of the fountains and Burj Khalifa and fountain show and the service was better than average, but the I felt the food did not warrant the high price tag.

It's my first time trying this restaurant. The food is very nice, with same taste as you get in Bangkok for fine dining. The view is great especially if you are on the terrace where you can enjoy the fountain show every 30 minutes. The only constraint is that you have a minimum spending of 350 AED per person and...

Lots of Thai restaurants in Dubai I would say maybe a 4 out of 5 only because the service was outstanding and they were super nice and caring 😊 I had a great beef salad which was a little spicy but just right! My main course was not what I expected. Ordered Lobster/Shrimp served with sticky rice. Salad and service... More

Thiptara is one of the upscale Thai restaurants in Dubai. Located in the Palace Downtown, the restaurant features indoor as well as outdoor seating areas but the Al fresco dining with an uninterrupted view of the mesmerising fountain is truly an experience worth 350 AED per person. We went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. At the time of table... More

Really great ambiance in this lovely Thai restaurant. Good prompt service and the expected amazing views over the fountains. Star of the show the food though, extremely flavoursome.

I was staying in the Palace hotel and decided to try Thiptara on my last evening; I was delighted with my choice! From the initial welcome, through to paying my bill, everything was faultless. Staff very professional and attentive throughout. I started with a cocktail followed by Chilli prawns and then one of the house specialty curries which was stunning!... 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.
