“Excellent food, good ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Set in a quiet garden among residential buildings this is a great place to escape the city bustle and eat really good thai food. Not everything is 100% authentic thai, but it's as close as asnyone could get in Maputo and still tastes great. Mixed tempura was fresh and served with tasty dips. Fish in green curry sauce with vegetables was perfectly cooked, generous and truly delicious. Giant prawns served thai style ( I can't remember exactly what this was on the menu), were humungous, meaty and delicious. Lots of space, friendly and helpful staff, happy atmosphere and a good price. WHat more could anyone ask for. I might even go again tonight! Note the kitchen closes at 10pm.

“Best Thai in town and cosy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Inter-Thai has been at its present location for many years and food has always been nice. The restaurant provides a number of the regular popular thai dishes adjusted to western (non spicy) taste. Unfortunately they don't serve Green Papaya Salad, which is a big miss in a country full of papaya trees.
The Matsuman curry and Thom Kha Gai are pretty nice choices.
The location, an enclosed quiet garden, is nice but in a bit of a run down state. The service is ok, the Mozambican waiters are doing their best to serve the clients.
Tip: If you are happy with the service, make sure to give the waiter (in a concealed way) a tip (like putting a bank note in his breast pocket). If not the Thai cassier/owner will keep it all.

“Nice food, tatty location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

This is another of my regular haunts in Maputo and a long-time favourite with the ex-pat crowd. The food is generally good (definitely the best of the Thai restaurants here). However, the space is a bit of a mess and it annoys me that they don't upgrade the cheap plastic chairs or wooden trestle tables given the place is always rammed.

“Great Thai food in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I went there for a lunch. The food is great and is Thai cuisine at his best. Nice place to go with family and kids have plenty of space to walk around.
