Get excited for authentic Thai food in Downtown Dubai as Café Isan Thai joins Time Out Market Dubai!

The home-grown restaurant launched in January 2016, with dishes coming from the self-taught Chef New. Her passion for food is strong, having grown up on her family’s farm in Bueng Kan in the Isan region of Thailand. Her family still farm rice, fish, fruits, herbs and vegetables there, while her mother also runs a restaurant and shop in the village. This farming upbringing also helped her understand ingredients, as well as focusing on zero-waste methods.

Unable to find the flavours of the Isan region in Dubai, Chef New, along with partner Lisa Knight, decided to set up Café Isan in JLT. Home-grown, original, high quality food and drink from chefs passionate about the city in a venue dedicated to showing off the city’s best. What more could you want?
