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.

Dear Poojah2020: * I was very excited to eat here * Thank you for the review. We are not a vegetarian restaurant but we do try to fight the exclusionary tendencies of many restaurants towards vegetarians.

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
