Been before a few years ago and was impressed but this time I was blown away, the best Thai food in Rio, service excellent and efficient, honey spare ribs soft meaty and tasty the best I have ever had, lamb curry soft and tasty, fried rice was really good, the food was very tasty an authentic Thai which not everyone gets right in Rio, there is a place up the road that was Appalling.

The food is very good, with various dishes on the acceptable Thai style. I've been therre a couple of times and the shrimp dishes are quite good. The Royal Phad Thai is ok, lacking perhaps more spice and more crashed nuts to be very good. The starters are also very tasty, with the degustation platter a very good option for those with limited Thai experience. Prices are very acceptable. The service is fast and nice. Outdoor seating is an option for warmer days if you don't like the powerful air conditioned setting of the internal room, but gets the odd smokers smoke when they come out to the street... Very good option - I recommend it.

Found this restaurant to offer a variety of traditional Thai dishes, but the menu offers unique variations which I truly enjoyed. Service was excellent, and appreciated having the menu in English. Prices are higher than Thai restaurants in the States. But it was worthwhile not only for the menu options but also for the quality and quantity of the dinner.

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.
