Café Isan is an authentic Thai Restaurant in JLT Dubai that brings the tastes, sounds and atmosphere of the Isan region to Dubai for the first time. This genuine Thai restaurant is famous for delicious dishes such as the Papaya Salad, the Masamaan Curry, the Green Curry, Penang Curry, Coconut Chicken Soup, Dry Garlic Beef and the Colonel Beef Noodles.
Simple, down-to-earth vintage Thai restaurant has taken inspiration from the flavours and distinct character of north eastern Thailand (Isan) perceived in its food, people and culture. The restaurant is Thai owned and managed, Café Isan brings genuine Isan, Thai food to the Middle East’s Thai community, whilst playfully re-interpreting it in a way loyal to its roots. A lot more than a Thai restaurant – Café Isan is a home away from home for the UAE’s Thai community.
Owner and Executive Chef “New” started out by cooking privately for Dubai’s Thai Community and was happy that the demand was high, eventually leading to the opening of Café Isan in Jan 2016. Clients share continued love, support and feedback to the staff and appreciate the journey evolving with authentic food, service, events and community.
Isan, Thai food is lighter than standard Thai – especially when the curries. Soups are clear as opposed to having a coconut base, and most dishes are traditionally spicier including Thai red chilli that is crushed, dried or made into pastes.
The Isan region of Thailand is 70% of the country, and is known for its lush rural heartland – the land of farmers, ancient temples, festivals and the birthplace of Thai funk or ‘Morlum’. Its people are warm, welcoming and embrace the simple and lighter side of life. They entertain themselves with Karaoke – which is another regional passion, hence Café Isan features a group karaoke table!
Café Isan takes a lot of pride in serving only the freshest, handcrafted, delicately balanced dishes each day. They are also committed to providing very high quality food at great prices. The restaurant welcomes takeaways/deliveries and online orders.
