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.

If you are familiar with good Thai food as we are, then give this place a big miss. The "green curry" seemed to be some local concoction with no lemongrass and other essential Thai ingredients. None of the staff appeared to be Asian and only one seemed to have any reasonable comprehension of English. Can't recall what other dishes we... More

I love Thai food and I was wanting to visit this restaurant for some time. It is located in Leblon, a nice cozy and unpretentious decor. Friendly service and attentive. I was lunching with a business friend so we didn't try many dishes. We had assorted dim sums for starters which were very good and I had prawns cooked with... More
