It was my second visit to this place after couple of years. Tables outside the restaurants were almost filled, and then I found a place inside the restaurant. I opted two plated from the lengthy menu, steamed red fish and fried rice with mixed meat. The man who served us was very polite, and served with pleasure. Fried rice was... More

I have been going here on and off for about 6 years and it is always a nice experience. Thai food is always good, especially the curries but others has been modified for the local clientele. Can also get pub food - steaks, pork chops, cottage pie etc but haven't tried - I usually stick with the curries. Can eat... More

This is a simple and comfortable restaurant in Maputo. The food is good, especially the pineapple rice, which comes inside a half cut pineapple.

I had a dish like nothing I ever had going back and forth to Thailand for 10 years, but it was tasty: fried rice, prawns and pineapple heaped up in a carved out pineapple. In the background hoots from the bar, and a mix of disco and rolling stones. Nice cold draft beer, but there's better beer at Piripiri around... More

This city has yet to find its own identity and because of this you can really only find, fast food places like KFC or Mundos or Portuguese establishments. Sometimes the pallet calls for something else, this little spot offers that something else!!!

We've been to Pekai a few times now and it's been reasonably good each time. The prices are okay and the food is good but it's nothing outstanding. The ambience is nice with just a few tables set outside within the garden wall. The best thing about it is that it's within walking distance from our restaurant. We'll continue to... More

Nice outdoor setting in pretty, quiet street and really delicious authentic curries. Great value for money and everything you expect but don't often get in a cheap night out.

A little bit harder to find than the other two Maputo thai restaurants it is a very good restaurant in a small backstreet with a pleasant outdoor sitting area. The owner is Thai so you know the food is authentic.
