Benjarong

Thai in Al Bateen & Al Mushrif

This rather romantic, dimly lit restaurant replete with comfy leather seating, ruby-red rugs and gold accents sits snug at the back of the Dusit Thani's ground floor. Order up gaeng dang ped (roast duck, pineapple and lychees in a red curry sauce) or a beef phad king sod (chilli and ginger wok-fried dish) to chow down on Thailand's flavours.

Full marks for a great selection of vegetarian dishes too.
