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

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...

I also tried the CaipiThai, that is a brazilian typical drink with thai lemon grass (that btw has a really... More

The restaurant itself is nice, the workers are nice as well. The portions of pad Thai get your money's worth.

We enjoyed the food a lot and in Rio you will probably not find much better Thai food ;) The freshness of the dishes was excellent but the spices and seasoning could have been more particular. Prices are absolutely OK and service is nice and fast. Unfortunately, the ambiance was not too pleasant as it had a bit the feel... More

I live beside this restaurant and eat there several times a week. I really like it because the price is fair, the place is very nice and the employees are so kind. They have vegan/vegetarian options, just ask for them. You may not feel very safe after 9pm at this street, but be cautelous and take a taxi if it... More
