Trendy Thai restaurants to try in Dubai
Mango Tree Thai Bistro
From its roots in Surawong, Thailand, this family founded chain has spread across the world and has now returned to Dubai after a brief hiatus, having once occupied a prime spot at Souk Al Bahar. Taking tastes from all four Thai regions, the dishes are both home-style and thoroughly fit for royalty.

Your pronunciation of the vast array of excellent dishes might leave you a tad, ahem, Tong-Thai’d but this brilliant Business Bay eatery will make you lick your chilli-kissed lips like few others. The crispy tiger prawns are a particular highlight.
