Excellent thai food (drinks are delicious as well!), a bit spicy for Brazilian standards but with amazing flavors. Definitely worth a dinner.

Nam Thai serves delicious food and has all the traditional Thai dishes, and is certified by the Thai government itself! The service is quite good and the prices are a bit on the high side, but still reasonable. When the restaurant is full it can be too noisy. Overall an excellent option for dining in Rio!

Excellent gastronomic experience. The duck was divine and the appetizers took us to Thailand. Be back for sure!

The Nam Thai follows the Thai tradition: only fork and spoon at table. Knife - for the Tahi culture - means war. But depending on what kind of meat you order the restaurant is flexible in this point. The service is excellent and the food delicious. We choose for dessert a nice mix and it was also great.

Nam Thai offers food from Asia, in special Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore. They use original ingredients and keep the traditional flavor of the dishes. I love the shramp, papaia and mango salad, the bankog mix and the fish with lemon souce. The Pad Thai is wonderful! And the sweet rice with mango as a dessert. The lichia juice or the lichia...

Being a Brazilian, from Rio, living abroad I am a strong critic of restaurants in Rio, specially when it comes to service. This time I had a very pleasant surprise. The waiter was marvelous, everything was great. Very nice ambience, good menu, good presentations, very good service. Definitely would go back.

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
