The food here is very good. I recommend the sampler pack to taste 7 different dishes. The place is small and very simple, nothing fancy. And the neighborhood may be scary specially at night.

I ate here two evenings in a row. I liked the food so much! Their is absolutely nothing wrong with food. However, I would not call it Thai. I would call it a amalgamation of Asian food..Lot of Indonesian, Thai, Vietnamese and Indian flavors. The Ginger chillie chicken is worth dying for. highly highly recomended! The guy sitting on the... More

I've been recently to Thailand and Vietnam and have tried lots of asian local food. This was my first Thai restaurant after returning from this trip and I was quite surprising by the food quality and taste due to my raised standards. Me and my girlfriend had the raw springrolls (I thought they were okay), a green curry (really well... More

This is essentially a takeout place with seating options. While the food is tasty and very reasonable, the atmosphere is fast food practical. Not for romance but good with a family.

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

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. It took us some time to answer to it due to the bizarre accusation, but thanks to the visit of 14 Thai nationals last Saturday, who loved our food, we decided to answer you because we couldn't let your false accusations just sit there. Our Thai costumers, like you, had the green curry,... 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.
