Thiptara - Palace Downtown
Overpriced. Can walk up to the floating patio and see the fountain lights for free instead. We spent AED350 on 1 glass of wine, 1 bowl of soup, 1 chicken dim sum and 1 scoop of ice cream for dessert. I can only imagine the bill if we arrived hungry.
That said, service was excellent and food was tasty.
We really loved the fantastic views, and exceptional service at Thiptara. The food was brilliant Thai quality, although definitely on the pricey end (Green Thai curry 155DHS). We sat outside and it was stunning. The only disappointment was that I had mentioned it was for a birthday and could a cake be brought out (Happy to pay for) on the booking, but nothing was done for this on the night.
Just average very overpriced food. View was nice.
Nice place and location to see the fountain show. Food is ok, but for that kind of money you expect something special not ordinary - but still solid - thai food.
The thai food is unfortunately not really authentic, also no Thai employees working there.
Nevertheless, the food is delicious and its quality is very good. Given the unbeatable view to the fountains and the overall atmosphere makes it worth the money and is 100% recommendable
You can see rhe fountain show, if you book in advance.
Beautiful fountain side restaurant with views of Burj Khalifa and great thai food. Very pricey though so good for special occasions.
We had the sharing menu and all the food was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic and the views over the fountains were excellent. We really enjoyed our visit and would recommend.
Amazing views of Burj kalifa
Great food, great service, great atmosphere.
Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you book a table on the terrace !!!!
absolutely favorite!!!! best thai restaurant we’ve ever been 😍
Staff was excellent from the moment we came until we left!
The food and service was great. The view of the waterfall was mind-blowing. I'll definitely recommend.
Ich vertrage kein Knoblauch und das bekam die Küche leider nicht hin
Die Nacht danach war nicht so schön
Ansonsten tolle Lage und preislich schon höher
Lovely meal, had the second sharing option. Service was great.
Get a seat outside to watch the fountains - saw 5 different shows in our dinner.
Can’t fault this place at all.
Absolutely stunning food and setting overlooking the Burj Khalifa fountains. A little hidden gem in a fantastic city. Will definitely return on our next visit
Try the Paenang curry, and ask for spicy. Medium spice had no heat at all.
Amazing view, delicious food. Phenomenal service and the overall experience was just wonderful!!!!
I came 4 times before and this time was very dispointing apart the fact we are in front of the fontains but you can enjoy as well in front of the mall
The server does not know the Thai names for the dishes
The food was not exceptional and you definitely don’t get the value for the cost!!
We specifically booked Thiptara as we heard good things about the view (of the fountains) and the food. The food was very good - not overwhelming. Pass on the Pad Thai but order the Cod. The Chicken Satay was also delicious with a great smokey bbq flavor.
We were disappointed in the fact that our table was off to the side (not near the fountains). When we asked to be moved to one of the many empty tables that sat right under the fountains we were told it was their smoking section!! As nobody was sitting there, we said we’d be fine sitting in the smoking section for the great view. They hesitated for a minute then told us no. They told us we could not move into the area with the good view as we had our teenagers with us and they were prohibited from sitting in the smoking section. Again, we said we didn’t mind as the section was nearly empty and no smokers.
They did try and move us a little closer but still we were off to the side and not under the fountains. A bit of a let down and not the best start to our special evening with our family and friends (visiting for the first time).
Definitely keep this in mind if you are booking.
Was absolutely amazing! Beautiful experience, food, location, ambience was wonderful!
Had a large group table on the terrace viewing the dancing Dubai fountain show in front of the famous Burj Khalifa - SPECTACULAR 👌🏽
Beautiful setting and delicious food infront of the fountains. Only thing that spoiled it slightly for us was the music/ DJ coming from the rooftop of the opposing building
Was very pleased with the family style menu. The portions were perfect and getting to try so many things was fantastic! We had excellent service with Jafar!!!
I made the reservation for three thru open table. My sister in law called the restaurant to make a reservation for the same time. So when we arrived. She gave them her name instead of mine.
Love bef the restaurant. Our favorite so far in Dubai
Delicious food and on the entertainer 👌👌👌. Great service, staff v nice and accomadating for a birthday
Had a lovely dinner, great service and good food. Was hoping it would be a bit spicier since I ordered Thai spicy. Got a lovely dessert for my anniversary. Thank you to the staff for their hospitality and amazing food!
Excellent food and great friendly service.
The best restaurant in Dubai! The only restaurant we revisit when in Dubai as there are so many options but nothing comes close to Thiptara!
The most delicious Thai food, this was our second visit as we ate here last Sept too. Cannot fault it in any way and would recommend to all!
I requested a birthday plate for my sister which was only served after the bill was paid and we had all got up to leave, very disappointed with the this service, and we have dined here before! My sisters birthday meal was ruined
The best Thai food I’ve ever eaten, had a wonderful night for my birthday, beautiful watching the fountains as you eat!! Will defiantly be back!
Excellent food, great service and the view of fountains was an added bonus
What an unbelievable place!!!
We told them beforehand it was our honeymoon and they really made the evening so special! Gave us a great table overlooking the fountains and decorated the table with flowers and the food and service was world class! Will recommend this restaurant to any family or friends visiting Dubai and we will be back too!
Excellent choice. Authentic thai taste and very nice view of the fountain show
Staff was very good and attentive.. they granted my request for a small cake for my friend’s birthday. Excellent food and service! Will go back for sure.
Excellent food selection and lovely relaxed atmosphere.
The staff were helpful and attentive.
I would definitely try this restaurant again.
This place is amazing by far the customer service received was outstanding and the food and quality is amazing I hope to visit again on my return back in the future. This was a special occasion for my wife birthday they gave her a complementary cake to surprise her the views are outstanding seeing the fountain show and the Burj Khalifa cannot wait to return
The toilets though are very often looking untidy with water and paper on the floor
The service, location, atmosphere, drinks choice and food was all excellent. I would definitely return if visiting Dubai again and would highly recommend anyone to go!
