This place is one key step away from being awesome. Its Achilles heel is that of so many other Rio restaurants. Is it too hard to throw some quality chicken/meat in there? I ordered a chicken noodle dish and asked for it extra spicy and boy did they produce. My mouth was on fire, which is next to impossible in this country. But their chicken was just so poor quality. Just big chunks of super dry flavorless bird breast. How about some chicken thigh huh? Maybe a little wing? Christ, anything but that horrible breast...but yeah, otherwise good flavor. freakin' expensive though. I'm used to paying 8 bucks for a thai dish in LA, not $22...

Nam Thai is very consistent in all aspects... they do not try to be a piece of Thailand in Rio de Janeiro.. their goal is to serve great thai food in a casual ambiance with excelent service. and you know what? my experience is that they always accomplish that!
The food is amazing, the service is friendly and the wine list gives options for different budgets...
Try to sit on one of the tables of the street!

Little dark , perfect for couples , but i always go with wife and daughter... The taste is amazing , and its among those few restaurants that once you are frequent costumer , still leaves doubt about what entree , since there are several outstandingoptios... Malasia ( fish ) , Singapura Laksa ( pasta with shrimps and scallops ) , pork mignom with coco milk are my favourites... Excellent appetizers also , and a small , but right wine list.... For the 3 of us , usually about 300 reais , about 150 dollars at today's conversion rate...
