There are not many restaurants where getting there is part of the experience, and that’s one of the things which makes a visit to Pai Thai so special. You can arrive at the restaurant via traditional abra after a journey along the tranquil waterways of the amazing Madinat Jumeirah, disembarking at the waterside restaurant’s own station. And the outstanding experience continues with the extensive menu. For starters, the round fish cakes come recommended, while for mains, choose a dish such as vegetable green curry, or for meat eaters, the duck curry. Both are full of flavour and come with generous portions of ingredients. With wooden floors, ceiling fans and traditional music, as well as waiters serving rice from traditional baskets, the whole place has homely feel. For desserts sample the best tasting traditional mango sticky rice this side of Bangkok. Book an outdoor table for the best experience at this terrific Thai hot spot.
