Tastes of the Capital: Benjarong

Eating at fantastic restaurants is one of the main pleasures in life here in Abu Dhabi.

There are lots of amazing places to dine, with everything from the finest Japanese cuisine to high-end French fare on offer, and everything in between.

To celebrate all that is brilliant about the capital’s dining scene, we here at Time Out Abu Dhabi have teamed up with The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi) for a very special six-week event.

Tastes of the Capital powered by Time Out Abu Dhabi will include 50 of the capital’s very best venues, which will be offering special menus from Monday July 1 to Thursday August 15.

You can find details of all the restaurants taking part at our dedicated section here.

As well as super meal deals there are also fantastic staycation packages on offer and loads of prizes to be won.

Benjarong is one of the restaurants taking part in Tastes of the Capital.

Dining at this elegant Thai hotspot at the Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi is always brilliant from start to finish.

The vibrant dishes are full of fresh ingredients and flavours, and the recipes are as authentic as any you’d find in Thailand.
