Want to experience Thai cuisine the Royal way with views of the tallest building in the world? Then award winning Benjarong in the iconic 5-star luxury hotel Dusit Thani, should be at the top of your list.
The award-winning signature restaurant affords diners gorgeous views of the Dubai skyline whilst serving the unmistakable flavours of Royal Thai cuisine, highlighting centuries-old recipes straight from the palaces of Thailand. The restaurant’s majestic interior resembles the royal dining halls of King Rama IV, and the gentle sounds of their classically trained Thai musicians add to the authenticity of this unique dining experience.
Upon entering you feel like you have come into a spa. The smell and feel is SO Thai that it transports you to the serenity and beautiful architecture of Thailand. We were welcomed very warmly by the staff and the hospitality was up to the mark that Thai hospitality is known for.
We started off with a lusciously delicious coconut water. It was refreshing and unlike any i have ever had. And it looked beautiful too!
Then came the crispiest spring rolls I have ever had and they were truly perfection! The filling inside was tasty and it came with a side of plum sauce which was easy on the tongue.
I am not a big fan of papaya salad but for those who love this traditional Thai salad, they will surely enjoy the burst of flavours in this dish.
For main course I had the red thai curry which was so good with the steamed rice that we ordered with it. It was authentic and exactly like how i have had back in Thailand with better quality ingredients of course. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better spread!
To end our perfect meal came the perfect dessert in the form of sticky rice and mango (the best i have had in dubai so far) and as full as i was, i managed to finish the entire dessert. The mango was not too sweet and blended perfectly well with the sweet sticky rice.
Amd of course we needed something to wash this all down so what better than some fine Green Tea!
Benjarong is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for the perfect Thai experience. Perfect for a date night, or a business lunch, this place will impress anyone you take here.
