Visited on a Saturday evening in September. The walk to the restaurant is lovely as it's located in the palace.

We ordered spring rolls, chicken satay, duck red curry, chicken green curry, rice and chocolate spring rolls. With a water, 2 pepsis and 2 glasses of wine it was around 800 AED. We had a voucher from the entertainer for a free main though so it was about £130 in U.K. money.

The staff were lovely and we had a free cake and photo for my partners birthday.

The views are lovely as you can see the fountains outside. Too hot to sit out though!

Thiptara came highly recommended by several friends of ours prior to our visit, so it was on our must dine list. We made a reservation well in advance of our September visit to ensure availability, which I would suggest if you are attempting to dine on the weekend (Fri/Sat) if possible request a table with a view of the fountains or on the patio if it isn’t too hot out.
Our table had an excellent view of the Dubai fountains and we were able to see a few of the different performances while we dined.

We tried:

Poh Piah Phak (Crispy mixed vegetables, mushroom spring rolls, sweet chili sauce)
Som Tum Thai Poo Yaak (Spicy green papaya salad, Alaska Crab, Thai lime chili dressing)

Pla Talay Neung Manow (Steamed fresh sea bream, Thai herbs, garlic, lime chili dressing)
Phad Thai Goong (Thai style fried noodle, fresh shrimps, bean sprout, peanut)

The meal was excellent, especially the papaya salad which was exceptional. Portion sizes are generous. The bill came to roughly $200 CAD (no alcohol, though it is served)

The food, service and the location was fantastic. Especially when you take a place at the terrace. The price is a bit high but we would for sure come back. It was a fantastic evening.

Brought my friend here who was visiting from the UK and we were blown away by the food and service. We were advised on how many dishes to have and on what spice level.She loved watching the fountains and when we got too hot after sitting out there for a while, our waiter was happy to move us inside. My friend was also brought a complimentary birthday cake which was delicious.
