Smiling Bangkok! We finally made it! It actually took us 3 attempts to get there, it had become a joke "let's go to Smiley BKK" nearly meant "let's stay home and have pasta". For some reason there was always something in the way.
But we finally got there, it took us a lot of will and appetite but we made it to that Dubai institution.
First of all: it is impossible to find the place if you are not accompanied by someone who's been there before.
Second: we nearly were defeated when we thought the restaurant was closed. Always get out of the car and check, you might have a good surprise (especially in Dubai where we are used to big bright lights, that place is the most discreet of all)
Third: the place is small, cosy and very quirky and full of stuff, I absolutely loved it.
Fourth: the service is not great but the little yellow tambourine they give you to call them does help a lot.
Five: the food is good, not exceptionally fresh but it does the trick and if you feel like a spicy Tom Yam, this is definitively the place!
A very good evening in an unusual place for Dubai!
