Nice little restuarant in a quiet area. Service was pretty decent, food was good but not as good as expected and no where near the quality of thai resturants in England.

Delicious food in a restaurant with a great ambiance. The restaurant has an English menu and the staff spoke English quite well. We thought the appetizers were fantastic, though we also very much enjoyed the entrees. We highly recommend!!

It's my favorite restaurant in Rio. The food is a rare experience and the desserts are simply heavenly. It's a little pricy but it's totally worth it.

This is a very beautiful restaurant in the upscale Leblon section of Rio de Janeiro. The extensive tile designs on the walls as well as the floor only add to an exotic yet relaxed atmosphere. We dined there recently and found the cuisine and service to be on pare with other fine dining restaurants in Rio. One bit of quirk... More
