Smiling Bkk

Smiling Bkk is a recommendation from a Thai friend of mine who has since left Dubai. He mentioned that Smiling Bkk can be counted on for some pretty authentic thai dishes.

Tracking down this place in a bit of a pain as they are located in an alley behind the petrol pump along al wasl road.

The decoration of this place is somewhat eclectic and they would fit right in a suburb in Bangkok.

We took the recommended Smiling Bkk platter with thai fish cake, spring rolls, money bags and prawn crackers. They were pretty good with special mention given to the thai fish cakes.

We order Phadthai with prawns as our main dish but it was a let down. It was too soggy and sweet for us and I can’t find the taste of the fish sauce that essentially makes the dish unique.

The deep fried whole fish was served with a nice sweet, spicy and sour salad that was lip-smackingly good!

Dessert was durian with sticky rice that was just average.

Smiling Bkk has its hits and misses but I reckon that it could be a nice place for a pretty authentic thai meal. Ps they have interesting names for the dishes in the menu but pls do note that they do not accept credit cards and deal only in a cash basis.

Dinner for 2 worked out to be AED185.
