For Brazil, its good enough

It was a good surprise to find this cozy little place in Botafogo. The food was good (of course if you cannot compare with real Thai food, in Thailand) and a good get away from the boring Brazilian cousine. My favorite thai dish is Green Curry and, I have to say, this restaurant puts effort to... read more

This restaurant serves nice Thai cuisine, the atmosphere is okay but service was pretty slow and not attentive. During we ate other customers left the restaurant and nobody cleaned up the tables. New customers left because there were no clean tables available, if it would be caused through busyness okay - but the waitress phone was more important, that's not... More

It is a very good choice for a quick, healthy and taste asian food. It is not about size for me, is about quality, ingredients, ingredients,ingredients. It is unfortunate that someone could not have help in English, because I've never had a problem there. I really recommend it.

It's a good Thai food. Overall you have good flavors and can choose from hot (spicy) or just mild. There´s a good variety of choices. One can order out or just sit and eat, most people have it as a take out/delivery, but portions are bigger when you eat at the restaurant (I speak by experience). A tourist friendly staff... More

Dear client, thank you for your kind review. We just would like to clear something up. Our portions are the same both for the restaurant and for the delivery, the ingredients are preportioned and in fact, more often than not, the cooks are informed that the dish they cooked is for the restaurant or for delivery only at the moment...

Hey there, I am surprised that everyone is speaking so highly of this restaurant. The food was ok, very small portions but good taste. The prices are relatively high compared to the meal size... nobody was able to speak English... so all and all we were not happy and would not recommend it to friends. Sorry guys

Dear Client, We were sorry that our employee-in-training did not understand your son´s request for extra rice on your first visit. In reading past reviews you will have noticed that we do not offer service, have no waiters, and try to keep prices down by not charging a service charge. So to give us a poor score based on service... More

I have never been inside of the restaurant but I ask a lot of delivery through Disc Cook. Their chicken curry is to die for. I love it!!

An English friend of mine turned me on to My Thai about two months ago. it is a bit off the beaten path, but definitely worth a visit, especially if you want something different from the standard Rio de Janeiro fare, which is a piece of meat or fish sauteed on a griddle, 2-3 starchy sides, and (maybe) a lettuce,...
