With so many tasty flavours and textures to enjoy, they are the perfect addition to any meal. So, without further ado, let's explore some of the best Thai fish cakes you can get your hands on in Dubai.
1. Tod Mon Pla
Fish starters are a great way to begin any meal, so make sure you grab some of the Tod Mon Pla served over at Nom Nom Asia next time you're feeling hungry.

The deep fried fish bites hit the spot every time, made with a fresh fish paste, red curry paste, long beans and kafir lime leaves for a deeply satisfying and delectable starter dish. Here's a tip: You may need to place a couple of orders for the table as they will go down an absolute treat!
2. Koi Tiow Ta Lay
If you are looking to enjoy your fish cakes along with a tasty Thai meal, then the Koi Tiow Ta Lay served at Shogun is right up your street.

This yummy rice noodle soup is served in a seafood broth where each bite is accompanied by delicious fresh seafood and comes with a serving of perfectly fried fish cakes. We agree that Thai fish cakes need to be a part of the main event and not just a starter, which is why this dish is perfect for fish cake lovers all over town!
3. Tod Mun Goong
The Tod Mun Goong served at Benjarong is a simple yet totally addictive shrimp cake which will have you begging the chef for the recipe once you've finished eating them.
