Surprisingly different, definitely good

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... read more

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!!

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!

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.
