I have lived in Medellin and I do recognize that this places has a nice atmosphere for being in the parque lleras without spending too much. definitely recommended if you wanna drink local alcohol such Aguardiante and Ron because they have discount. Cocktails are very bad, you get 3x1 but the quality isn't good, so you are drinking a mixed of juice and alcohol bad prepared. The food is ok but nothing to do with real thai flavours. Do not expect too much and it is always crowded.

On our way to find a great place for lunch, we stumbled upon Thaico and gave it a try - very different then your average Colombian meal, but it tasted well and presentation was nice.
We had the fried noodles, which were crispy but too saucy.
Not worth coming back to.

After a long walk to El Poblado, we found this restaurant. We got there just before 7PM, which meant we would get our food for half price. Otherwise the food here would be massively overpriced! Service is so-so, and when I received my teriyaki chicken, there was nothing teriyaki about it! It was still edible though. If you want a change from the usual Colombian menu, this could be a nice change, but don't show up after 7PM or you'll pay through the nose.

This place advertises 3x1 cocktails and 2x1 dinners. Indeed, they need to serve 3 cocktails for that price! The food does not taste like Thai. Spring rolls taste like something you would get at TGI Friday's, and Pad Thai tasted like vinegar, not spicy at all.
Watch them closely on the 2x1 dinners, reportedly offered until 7 pm. We placed our order for our dinners well before 7 pm, but our waiter chose not to ring it all up until 7:37 pm, thus negating the 2x1 special. We called him on it, and he would not correct it. We asked for the boss, and she even fought us, but eventually took one of the dinners off.
All in all, an experience best avoided.

I went to this restaurant because it was next to my hotel. They had a 3x1 cocktail happy hour, so it was pretty crowded. This unfortunately meant I received awful service. The food was alright, but a bit overpriced. I had better meals while visiting.
