I was in Rio for a few nights and a friend suggested going to My Thai. What a great experience. It´s a hidden gem. Nice surroundings and friendly staff. But it´s the FOOD - it is something else. If you like Thai food you have to go there. All natural ingredients and at a great price. I enjoyed it so... More

We sought out an Asian restaurant in Rio as a change of pace after 10 days of grilled meat and black beans. Although not a top tier restaurant, this fit the bill nicely. The quality of the food was pretty good, not great. This is not a pretentious place - you order your food at a counter like fast food... More

We have eaten Thai food all over the world, everywhere from Australia to Alaska, including Thailand. i can honestly say that until today I had never had a bad Thai dining experience. Unfortunately, the food being served at My Thai, just doesn't qualify as Thai! The defining dish of all Thai cuisine is chicken green curry. At My Thai we... More

I was very excited to eat here after the reviews, but it wasn't as fantastic as I had hoped. Limited menu and much fewer options for vegetarians. Small casual restaurant.

This time I went with friends, as it was a tuesday we did not have much to do. Even if the decoration is very neutral it is completely forgotten once the food is served. Do not be afraid of telling them how the food was like they are very easy going. As my friend did not know about thai food... More

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...
