I really liked this place

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... read more

This restaurant was very nice. The food was extremely tasty. Good service if a little slow. All at reasonable prices. Worth a visit.

We were surprised that this was featured in Lonely Planet guidebook as a 'must go'. We did not find the taste authentic and representative of Asian cuisine. One of our dishes was curry but I only tasted sweet coconut sauce and not much curry. It also taste like coconut powder was used instead of coconut paste. We are skeptical of... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance wandering from our hotel in the Multi Cine Building on Arce. We were delighted to find an Asian restaurant in La Paz let alone one with such a lovely decor and kind staff. They have some amazing fresh juices, smoothies and teas and the staff even gave us free smoothies to try. We... More

This place is reasonably priced and has some pretty good Asian food. The egg rolls were my favorite. We also ordered pad thai and fried rice. Both were good but be careful if you ask for spicy...it's really spicy.

The restaurant has a great vibe, good atmosphere, but took a very long time to get our food. Also, the menu is actually really expensive for the amount of food that you get. I ordered the Pad Thai and frankly, it wasn't very flavorful at all. My friend got a curry chicken dish which was much better, but still the... More

We had to wait nearly 2 hours for our food so by the time it came it was 11.30pm and none of us felt hungry anymore. We were a group of 7 and the place wasn't that busy so we couldn't understand why the food took so long and no apology was given by our waiter. When the food finally... More

We went as part of a group and had a reservation. The restaurant wasn't equipped for the 2 groups it had and it took 2.5 hours to get our meals. We had expressed our concerns to the owner, and instead of dealing with us, he got mad and left the restaurant. We had all ordered our meals according to which... More

Had heard mixed things about Maphrao On, and definitely dubious about any restaurant claiming to be Asian "fusion", but we had a great night. Firstly, as others have said, do not go expecting authentic Thai or Indian cuisine. It has been Bolivianised. It is however very tasty, portions are HUGE (we ordered 3 starters and two mains and couldn't finish),... More
