The service was excellent and the food even better. We also enjoyed the opportunity to sit at a table on the street. With these positives, I would say that the portions could be bigger. But we would definitely return!

Went for dinner with friends. Nice decor, very contemporary Thai feel and excellent staff and service. Like previous reviews I really enjoyed the starter selections - they were all very tasty. The mains were good sizes and looked the business but they weren't the same as we get at home in Sydney. Regardless this place is well worth a visit,... More

From what I've read, finding Thai food in Brazil sounds like a challenge, so we were really happy to stumble upon this place when looking for somewhere to eat in Leblon. A bit pricey but the quality of the food was excellent, the service good, and the atmosphere lively.

Was a little disappointed with this placed based on other reviews on here. The starters were all tasty and so I was looking forward to the mains, but they were disappointing. I ordered the thai green curry which didn't taste much like others I've had in the past and everyone else's mains were not great either

Every trip to Rio de Janeiro deserves a visit to the Nam Thai Restaurant. If you enjoy thai food, there are no mistake in their menu. Staff is very friendly. An experience that you cannot miss! I look forward to going there again.

I have gone to this place several times. I used to live in Rio and I travel a lot there for bushiness now. This was one of my husband and I favorites. We usually ordered the same: chicken with cashews or sharps in coconut served in pineapple. I have liked it every time I've been there. It even has a... More

I had been to Nam thai a few times during my stay in Rio for 3 months. But everytime when I went to Nam Thai, I had enjoyed my food very much. Even took some of my brazilian friends there and they also liked the food very much.
