I came to this branch when it first opened and loved it, thinking it was one of the best Thai newcomers to Dubai. Since then, and I’m talking maybe three, four years ago, the Little Bangkok franchise has grown…a lot. And, although I’ve been to several of their other branches, I’ve not necessarily been impressed, especially with the one in Motor City which is nearest my home. So, it was with great interest that I returned to this first branch.
I think one of the reasons Little Bangkok appeals to so many is that it no longer serves authentic Thai food. For authenticity (at this price point) you would have to visit the likes of Smiling BKK. Now those guys really rock! The food at Little Bangkok is good, no doubt, but it doesn’t taste Thai to me anymore. It seems to have evolved into something…near-enough Thai, which appeals to everyone. That’s my opinion. The packed restaurant I had lunch at tells me that I am obviously in a minority.
Service has actually improved, and to me is the best part of the restaurant. That said, I will stick to the Smiling BKK for my Thai food.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
