My husband and I went to this this restaurant for dinner, the food was great. You can tell the ingredients are fresh, and it is well made, and tasty. To start we shared the Rolinho Primavera fresco ( fresh spring roll) and the Rolinho de Camarao ( Shrimp in a blanket with Cilantro). I had the Tofu Green Curry, and... More

This is as close as you're going to get to authentic Thai food in Rio. This place makes all their curries and even hot sauce from scratch. You can definitely find heat and spice here. It's a fast food type setting, but it is not short on flavor. Unlike the other Asian or Thai restaurants in Rio, this place is... More

Thank you for your review. One of the great pleasures of restaurant ownership is when someone actually gets exactly what you are doing! Yes, we are lucky enough to have our own organic garden where we can produce the ingredients for our sauces and pastes. Our idea was to create a no-fuss place where we could let the flavors do...

I had a great experience ordering a green curry.... Having already eaten in thai restaurants in New York, London, Berlin, Paris and São Paulo, I can say that My Thai is one of the best thai meals I ever had. I also tried the CaipiThai, that is a brazilian typical drink with thai lemon grass (that btw has a really... More

The restaurant itself is nice, the workers are nice as well. The portions of pad Thai get your money's worth.

We enjoyed the food a lot and in Rio you will probably not find much better Thai food ;) The freshness of the dishes was excellent but the spices and seasoning could have been more particular. Prices are absolutely OK and service is nice and fast. Unfortunately, the ambiance was not too pleasant as it had a bit the feel... More

I live beside this restaurant and eat there several times a week. I really like it because the price is fair, the place is very nice and the employees are so kind. They have vegan/vegetarian options, just ask for them. You may not feel very safe after 9pm at this street, but be cautelous and take a taxi if it... More

The menu is small, but if you like pad thai noodles or Thai curry, you are in for a treat. I'm probably one of the few people who love Thai food but don't like pad thai, so I passed on the noodle dishes and got the green curry with chicken. It takes a while for the curry to arrive so... More

I was back to My Thai last week and seems that service improved a lot since my 1st visit. Food was cheap and great - we were 4 and took a "Starters Special Menu" = 4 different choices of Thai starters. We did two times as the first round just open our appetite... Good choice and very good value of... More
