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

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!

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!

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!

Beautiful food and a stunning setting. Thanks for a wonderful evening! Only downside for me was being sat at a table that I was unable to see the fountain/Burj properly.

We had a lovely evening outside as the sun set watching the water show and light performance on the Burg Kalifa. We shared and appetizer and a main dish which was plenty for us. The food and service was outstanding.

We very rarely get a chance for date night but this was it for this year and Thiptara blew us away. Excellent food, service and overall it was just perfection.

Excellent location for amazing evening celebration. Service and food excellent. Exciting magic fountain show from close up. A little difficult to find, directions should mention restaurant in Palace Hotel, Dubai Mall.

We reserved a table in internet and indicated that we want seat near the water to see burn halifa. But when we came we saw that restaurant attendants see that with the first time, because they were surprised. We were seated at a table near water, make an order and officiant just forget about us.
• We didn’t get a table we want
• We didnbt get the attention of the waiter.

Great meal and venue

Pity about the loud music from across the lake near the opera house. Was out of place and distracting

Good team of people
