Great Thai food

The penang curry was great as were the fish curry and chicken satay that we has to start. Best Thai we have had in south America so far.

This restaurant is a very pleasant place to stay. The wooden building seems to be a mountain chalet and the interior design is absolutely warm and refined. The owner speaks fluently in English and the quality of the food is very good and not expensive. I had the fried prawns with chili, the tum soup with squids and shrimps and... More

Initial visit as part of group of 10 left me impressed with food, attention, service, ambient music and décor - certainly value for money and worth a return visit. Second visit was an anti - climax sparked by a large party of Death Bikers and understaffing. Apart from an Indonesian Salad being drowned in a sea of hot stock the... More

Life in La Paz on your own isn't really that easy, even for just a few days. Whilst it never feels terribly unsafe, it always has a little bit of an edge to the hustle and bustle, which is actually part of it's crazy charm. On my second last day there, I needed some good sustenance, and had had the... More

An unbelievably top-notch surprise in La Paz! The ambience is spotless and gorgeous, with tasteful Asian decor and groovy electronic chill music in the background. The service is impeccable and extremely friendly. But put all that aside: THE FOOD IS OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD AMAZING. Granted, I had just traveled 24 hours on a bus from Chile without eating anything when I arrived... More

This place was a good 40 minute walk from our hotel but it was well worth the walk. The restaurant is quaint little wooden building and inside the ambience in the place was very nice and cosy. The food was delicious with plenty of choice for vegetarians. I had veggie Thai red curry which came with rice and was very... More

We heard good things about this place via previous reviews, but unfortunately we were let down. The waiter did a mediocre job so I can't blame him, but the food took over TWO HOURS to arrive on our table. Many tables waited even longer, one table even left before their entrees arrived. I understand that there was one large group,... More

Great Pad Thai, we loved the food and drinks. The noodles seemed home made, the sauce was not too spicy so if you like spicy order it hotter. My husband had the cashew chicken and also loved it.

Reading the reviews here and I almost passed on this dining opportunity! Honestly, if you are looking for authentic Asian food anywhere in the world . . . go to Asia!! Or go to a China town etc!! Now that I've got that out of my system, I'd like to say that I had a great experience. All the food... More
