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.

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

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
