Very good thai food

Food and price are the only positives of this restaurant. Maybe in the top 5 regarding taste alone. It was supposed to be a "thai fast-food" but it ended up as a regular restaurant. Dont bother going there, just order the food and be happy.

This place is nice and quiet. Wish staff was a little friendlier. Food is delicious. The yellow curry with shitaki fantastic! I have it everytime. They use no chemicals, no artificial colourings - as claimed by them.

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 make something close to... 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...
