PAI THAI – GOURMET THAI IN THE HEART OF DUBAI
An incredible journey of discovery, Pai Thai restaurant ranks particularly high in dining experience.The evening begins with an abra boat taking us to the restaurant, and once seated we enjoyed the views across Madinat’s serene waterways.
It was our 3rd marriage anniversary so we decided to go somewhere special,as recommended by one of our friends we booked Pai Thai 15 days before hand.The manager asked us about the occasion so we let know him about our anniversary.Located at Dar al Masyaf hotel,Madinat Jumeirah but we were lead to Al Qasr hotel,Madinat Jumeirah as we get Abra rides from there to the restaurant.Its very easy to find out and the staffs were always there to help.
And then the culinary magic begins within the waterways of Madinat and we were in our destination.The first look at it was just an “WOW” from me.As it was weekend we were seated by the manager in a beautifully designed room with full of Thai sculptures and cultures.We were offered the most beautiful seat across the serene waterways and it made our occasion more special and romantic.
Light, aromatic and invigorating dishes burst with the traditional flavors of Thailand.
For Starters we ordered GOONG YANG (grilled prawns with lemongrass and Thai sauce) and a soup TOM KHAR GAI (tangy chicken soup with coconut,mushroom,tomato,lemongrass and ginger)
For the main course it was GOONG GRA TIEM PRIK THAI (crispy tiger prawns with garlic,coriander and green pepper sauce) , GAENG KHIEW WAN GAI (green chicken curry with eggplant,coconut and basil) which was completed with 1 bowl of Thai Jasmine rice…
The taste of every bite was heaven in my mouth so well mixed spices and herbs with the prawns and chickens giving the perfect combination.The traditional Thai dancers were all around dancing in their tunes to entertain the guest and beautiful soft Thai music was played all over the place which added to the perfect experience of the tradition and culture.The manager and the staffs were always coming up to ask for anything we needed and to the experience of how we felt.
Last but not the least they made our day by giving us a cake (complimentary) to celebrate our anniversary and it was just too delicious and mouthwatering.Good things has to end so we headed towards the abra to go back to the hotel.
