Description: Kotai pirmsākumi meklējami 2000. gada pavasarī, kad tā dibinātājs, tolaik vēl tikai vidusskolas absolvents, sakravāja koferus un pārcēla savu iedzīvi no Latvijas dzestruma uz Taizemes tveici. Jau pirmajā dienā pēc ierašanās, saskāries ar vietējās kulinārijas maiguma un pikantuma galējībām, mūsu varonis sev apsolīja, ka no tām vairs nekad nešķirsies. Nekad, nekad.Pavadījis nākamos 12 gadus apceļojot Āziju krustām šķērsām, kāre pēc eksotikas bija beidzot apmierināta. Bija pienācis laiks apmierināt kāri pēc Latvijas. Jau pirmajā dienā pēc atgriešanās, saskāries ar pašmāju ēdināšanas iestāžu taizemiešu virtuves pliekanumu un nebaudāmību, mūsu varonis nolēma cīnīties pret šo kulināro netaisnību. 2012. gada vasarā durvis vēra Latvijas pirmais autentiskās taizemiešu virtuves restorāns Kotai. Pateicoties ēdienu sastāvdaļu autentiskumam un taizemiešu pavāra apmācīta personāla profesionalitātei Kotai piedāvātie ēdieni tiešām garšo tieši tā, kā tām būtu jāgaršo. Tie ir asi. Tie ir maigi. Tie ir burvīgi. 2014. gada sākumā, tā vietā, lai baudītu īstu Āzijas nūdeļu neatkārtojamo garšu, Tu nez kādēļ sēdi un lasi šo stāstu. Droši pasūti un mēs atvedīsim!

First of all: this is NOT only a take-away restaurant even though the title states it. It has a small seating area with tables and the interior is all in all simple, yet stylish. The food was cheap, tasty and spicy, just as they promised. You can choose the spiciness from 3 different categories, according to your own taste. The... More

Let me just say that I've lived in Thailand long enough to consider myself a connoisseur, if not an expert, of Thai food. That being said, I've been to quite a few Asian food restaurants in Riga looking for that deja vu taste only to find disappointment and eyebrow-raising checks instead. Then again, when you see both sushi rolls and... More

Old Riga is filled with many expensive places to eat so I was happy to find this affordable place. It is the only Thai restaurant in Latvia and while it wasn't the best Thai food I've ever had, it was certainly acceptable. Also not the most authentic Thai restaurant but given that this is Latvia and it would be difficult... More

Never see Thai restaurant so bad. There is no Thai shef. Tom yam soup is based on cabbige. Where do you cook something like that in Thailand. Padthai is based on black soya souce. The basic of padthai is tamarin souce. If you would like to eat you can eat but you can not smell or taste Thailand.
