“Good food”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The food here was varied and good. However, the place was packed like most other restaurants in rio around new year so the service was very slow and the tables were cramped together to fit the maximum number of people. So overall food was good but not a very relaxing dining experience.

“Great Thai Food”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you like oriental food and want something different from japanese food, this is the place to go. Great food, good location and not too expensive.

“Spicy!!!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Liked very much the exotic food!! All the receipes done with pepper or coconut milk, there´s a delicious shrimp soup, and the place is very interesting, constructed in old materials.

“Amazing Thai food in Rio”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Nam thai is a small restaurant in Leblon. The staff are nice and although is a pricey food, is worth it. The combined appetizer can be divided among a table and they serve good portions of the sauces.
I had duck with tamarind sauce and curry rice. Amazing and super tasty! One wonderful experience for a gourmet the combination of juicy sauce and the duck meat. The dessert was a coconut pannacotta with jasmie gelee and orange caramel, marvellous, absolutely exquisite for the senses. If you like exotic cuisine, this is a place to go. Also a good place to impress a date.
There are some dishes that can be slipt between two people and is not absurd to do that.



They also do not bother if you can´t finish your dish and ask them to pack the rest to take home. They´ve put even on a china-in-box pack the rest with a bag.

“Good food, nice space”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I found Nam Thai on the web and decided to visit while I was here in Rio. It was a short drive from Copa to Leblon. The staff was excellent and the service was great. I am a vegetarian so I was really looking forward to some great food. I enjoyed the spicy fried rice dish, but I wish they had tofu which they did not. They also did not have any beers from Thailand like Singha, which would have been excellent. I think the food is good, they had a nice option for an appetizer, meal, and dessert for about 40 Reias or $20. Service was nice too.
