If you want to try good Asian food and good ambience I really recommend this restaurante. Don't miss the fried rice with shrimp. Delicious!

Very nice place to dine, food of excellent quality and excellent service. If you're looking for the cheap Asian restaurant you find in Europe or America this is not the place for you. Thai restaurants are not so common in Brazil, and are generally not the cheap joint run by Thai staff you find elsewhere.

I have been here a few times and every time has been great. The service is good, the food is outstanding and the ambience is nice. I like my beers cold and this is a problem here as they have always been warm, but the waiters have always offered to chill the beer in an ice bucket and that made them much better. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

I can get in and out of Thai place in the US for like $25 and that includes an app, main and a drink. Thai joints are small, no frills experiences serving quality food. This place is a joke. Its upscale, a concept that doesnt exist in america, and insanely expensive. A medium quality main is like $30. You wont get out of here for less than $50 a person and the thai food basically sucks. Just dont est thai in brasil.
