There are a few cuisines in the world that have a global uptake, that can please all taste buds, stand the test of time and continue to convert diners, and Thai cuisine is a top contender in countless countries cross the globe. The good news is that Dubai is a city where one can experience cuisines from around the world without actually having to travel out of the country, and in the case of Thai food, we are blessed with many restaurants to choose from.

Trying new and exciting food can make us understand each other’s’ cultures and traditions better, be it Asian, African, Western or Middle Eastern. Thai cuisine in particular is popular perhaps because it has many layers of flavours and can be mild or spicy depending on how much heat you are used.

Some all-time favourite dishes would include the Thai green or red curry, satays, Papaya salad, fish cakes, chicken or prawns wrapped in Pandan leaves, shrimp crackers, Panang curry, pineapple fried rice, spring rolls with plum sauce and Pad Thai noodles.

If you haven’t tried Thai food yet, there are plenty of options to choose from here in Dubai, from budget friendly restaurants to award winning fine-dining options.

We recommend Lemongrass at Lamcy Plaza (+971 4 334 2325), Little Bangkok (800 226 4565) located on Sheikh Zayed Road and in Media city or Royal Orchid at Marina Walk (+971 4 367 4040). All three provide friendly service at an affordable price and food that would make your taste buds carving for Thai food again.

For more experienced foodies Thai restaurants such as Pad Thai at Al Qasr Madinat Jumeirah (+971 4 366 6730), Benjarong at the Dusit Thani Hotel (+971 4 343 3333) and The Royal Buddha at Holiday Inn Al Barsha (+971 4 323 4333) are definitely places to try during your stay in Dubai.

Thai food will for sure win you over as it is fresh, exotic and the variety is endless due to the endless use of seafood, all kinds of meats, spices, herbs and vegetables.

If you have been to Thailand and carving Thai food then we don’t blame you, Thai food is exciting and depending on what you order it can feel like you are eating straight from a Bangkok street or from a Thai home kitchen.

However, if you are trying Thai food for the first time, you could be under the impression that the cuisine is spicy, as it is Asian, however most restaurants are more than flexible and will make your Thai dishes according to your spice level. Either way give it a try you will be impressed for sure.
