Café Isan is down-to-earth, vintage Thai inspired by the flavours and distinct character of north eastern Thailand (Isan): its food, people and culture.
Thai owned and managed, the restaurant brings genuine Isan, Thai food to the Middle East’s Thai community, whilst playfully re-interpreting it in a way loyal to its roots for the rest of us.
In general Isan, Thai cuisine is lighter than standard Thai, and Café Isan prides itself on serving only the freshest, handcrafted, delicately balanced dishes daily. We're also committed to providing very high quality food at great prices.
The Isan region of Thailand is 70% of the country, and is its lush rural heartland – the land of farmers, ancient temples, festivals and the birthplace of Thai funk or ‘Morlum. ‘ Its people are notoriously warm, welcoming and embrace the lighter side of life. Karaoke is another regional passion, hence Café Isan’s group karaoke table!
