If you like to Thai one on

Good Thai food at the restaurant behind the pool at the Hyatt but I could not get an answer as to why it was named after an Ahu on Easter Island since I've never found a Thai resaturant ( or a Thai) on Rapa Nui.

Food was nice and flavourful. Ambience is romantic. Service was amazing (gracias Rafael!), which is hard to find in Chile

Reading some of the reviews for Anakena one would think that it was indeed something to write home about, but that's certainly not the case. In any event, the letter would be SHORT, as in a menu with a very limited and lackluster selection; BLAND, as in food lacking the excitement and flavorful kick found in authentic Thai cooking; and...

This first-rate restaurant is located in the Grand Hyatt Santiago and serves one of the better menus of Thai foods in the city. Many of the city's restaurants stick to traditional regional fare, so a visit here is a great way to savor international cuisine. The menu features meats and vegetables cooked on an open grill or fried, depending on... More

Great thai restaurant located within the beautiful Grand Hyiatt Hotel. In the edge of a marvelous garden, the place is extremely pleasant and offers an impeccable service. The food is very good, made with great skill and the wine list is full of good labels, from the best known icons to the excelent findings of small producers. I highly recommend... More

My wife & I plus two close friends had a thoroughly delightful dinner here on Friday 12/19. We ate outdoors on their terrace overlooking beautiful grounds. We had a wide variety of delicious appetizers that we shared as our meal with fairly good wine & Chilean beer (I'm a fan of local craft beers). Service was gracious & helpful, but... More

Sitting outside was a wonderful experience. Original Thai food, good selection and nicely presented. Maybe not that spicy compared to restaurants in Thailand. Specifically the service was excellent, very prompt, efficient and very friendly. The waiter always asked if all is ok and if we we have any wishes.
