    Toller Platz um die Fontänen zu erleben. Es gibt wohl keine bessere Lokation. Das Essen wargut, allerdings wurde man nicht darauf hingewiesen dass die Gerichte Fleisch enthielten, was leider nicht ersichtlich war. Für Vegetarier ein no go. Wir würden aber wieder dort essen.

    we ordered limited food but portions were perfect (maybe green curry could have been more generous, rice was excessive) but the taste and presentation were excellent,, always a pleasure to be there when in dubai... it a "must" (we are vegetarians)

    Restaurant has a fantastic view of the fountains and Burj Khalifa. Food is excellent. Service great. Lucky for us, things are slow right now in Dubai so the restaurant is not busy. Great selection if you want an evening of free water and light shows in gorgeous downtown Dubai!!! The Thai food is very good - stands up well to the excellent entertainment.

    Food was exceptional. They made an effort to move my table after I requested a table with a nice view of the fountains at my original booking. Bit pricey but definitely worth it for a special occasion. This place offers probably the best view of burj khilifa and the fountains (if sitting outside on deck).

    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.

    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
