Pai Thai restaurant in Dubai, UAE, has resumed operations following refurbishment works.

Located in the luxury resort of Jumeirah Al Qasr, the revamped restaurant now features a new interior inspired by the home of US businessman Jim Thompson with an indoor-outdoor bar area. It is also decorated with Thai umbrellas and candles.

Additionally, Pai Thai has also added new items to its menu, which includes The Rite of Siam brunch and 5 Tastes of Thailand.

The brunch features sharing style dishes served every Friday and Saturday between 12.30pm and 4pm. Customers can also add soft and house drinks with this package.

On the other hand, 5 Tastes of Thailand is a five-course set menu with an optional drinks pairing.

The restaurant is operated by Sarood Hospitality.

Sarood Hospitality group executive chief Ben Tobitt said: “To support our plans, our culinary team underwent an immersive exploration trip to Thailand to scout the best Thai ingredients and find additional dish and technique inspiration from across the country.

“The new concepts that are being introduced provides our guests with the same experience as our team had in the heart of Thailand, with a key focus on authenticity, ingredients and atmosphere.”

Based in Dubai, restaurant operator Sarood Hospitality’s brands include Al Nafoorah, Khaymat Al Bahar and Segreto.

Last year, US fast-casual restaurant chain Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers opened its first international location at the Dubai Mall.
