Restaurant name and location: Sofitel Hotel Downtown, Dubai
Atmosphere: Relaxed and Quiet
What they say: Zingy interiors enhance the delicate flavors of Asian cuisine in this new fine-dining restaurant in downtown Dubai. Delight in ornate sushi, spectacular Teppanyaki show cooking, and subtly spiced Thai curries. You can order from The Red Grill menu, too.
What to order:
Prawn spring rolls with a side of sweet chili – simple fried prawn spring rolls
Rice crackers with sweet chili – delicious starter
Chicken green curry – delicious, the coconut flavor is incredibly fresh. Pointer: The mild is still slightly spicy
Beef with black bean sauce – flavorful and a main course favorite
Pad Thai noodles (one of my favorite orders, the sweet tinge was just perfect accompanying the beef and chicken)
Coconut sticky rice with mango (my favorite Thai dessert and green spices aced it)
Service: Staff were incredibly accommodating and super sweet.
What I loved:
-They have a live chef cooking experience for the set menu.
-Just incase someone doesn’t love Thai food on your table, you are able to order from the Red Grill next door to the table.
-The traditional touches like how the waitresses would bring the dishes in a Thai basket.
Bill for two: AED300
