Stopped by here for lunch as hadn't been for a while. Sadly it seemed to be a little lack lustre. The staff were friendly enough and the service was OK, but they acted as thought it was a chore. Food was again OK, but did not seem as good as it had been on previous visits

We went for lunch at Royal Orchid after our tour with the Yellow Boats. This was just after our holidays in Thailand where we had loads of traditional Thai food. I have to say that we liked what we were served. The food is definitely not internationalized and comes with a traditional Thai flavor. Tom Yam Gung and the Spicy... More

The Service personal was quite attentive and friendly. The Restaurant makes a pleasant and clean impression. The food, in our case Satay's and Beijing duck was well delicious and nicely presented. This visit was the second visit and it confirmed the good impression from the 1st visit 2 years ago.

To be honest, I was disappointed on my first visit. We waited a long time for our food; when it finally came, mine wasn't that great, although everyone else seemed to like theirs. Then we had to argue with the waiter about splitting the bill, honoring our Entertainer voucher (which we had presented before ordering, so they knew it was... More

We sat at the terrace outside to take advantage of the marina view which was great. The seafood tomyam was authentic and spicy mild with two succulent prawns. The tomyam soup whilst flavourful with all the spices was a wee bit salty. Green chicken curry was tasty and again not too spicy. Hot plate prawns were fresh but the source... More

It's clear from the sheer size and breadth of the menu that this would be a jack of all trades pan Asian dining experience.. And it is.. Of note though I'd recommend the chili salted lobster and char kway teow and the duck red curry. Having said that... In terms of Asian options though... It's probably the best available option...

Went there for chinese food. The portion is big but unfortunately the food is tasteless. I will not recommend if you are looking for Chinese food.

Our dinner here was much better than expected, I was quite reluctant as usually these type of franchise like restaurants, with more than one type of cuisine (i.e. thai, mongolian, chinese) fail to deliver and have pretty much standard type of food catered to tourist. For our surprise the curries and noodles that we had were quite good, and the... More

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
