4.5

An outstandingly chilled setting and perhaps the best brunch in town.

This is one of my favourite spots in town, serving a delicious menu of Thai (in little tapas-style dishes) in an outstandingly relaxed setting. Head down in the evening for a romantic meal by the creek or opt for the excellent Friday brunch. Book an outdoor table (if it's not too hot) and watch your Friday afternoon gradually unwind.

Food and drink

Unsurprisingly, it's all Thai here. The main difference is that it's all served in little tapas style dishes, meaning you can sample a bit of everything and needn't settle for just one option. The quality is outstanding. If you like, you can even watch the chefs at work as the cooking stations are all housed in glass rooms within the main section of the restaurant. 

Recommended dishes

Being served in little tapas dishes, you can go for almost everything. However, if I had to pick just one dish, it'd be difficult not to veer away from the juicy prawn toast.  

Ambience

By night it's a rather romantic setting, especially the moonlit outdoor tables. The popular Friday brunch can get a little more rowdy (that'd be the all-inclusive beer and wine), but is still among the more sophisticated brunches in town. it's hugely popular with Western expats, but also tourists who have managed to hear about this excellent spot.  

Service

Excellent throughout.  

Location

The Thai Kitchen is found in the Mediterranean-style bliss of the Park Hyatt Hotel, on the Deira side of the Dubai Creek. The restaurant itself is sat by the waterside, nestled amid the hotel's white walls.  

Price advice

A meal for two will probably cost around 300-400 dirhams. The Friday brunch (12 noon-4pm) costs 225 dirhams with unlimited wine and beer or 175 dirham with softdrinks. 

Tables to book

If the temperature is favourable try to get a table outside. It's easily the best spot to be.
