The food and service was excellent. We love the Papaya Salad, Sticky Rice, Fried Rice with Chicken and Tom Yum Goong soup. The Thai Iced Tea, delicious!! We'll go back.

“Thai: the real thing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

The thai restaurant unfortunately are very occidentalizied. It's hard to find a place thet really stick to tradition. Tahi's cooking it's all about a delicate balance of spice, sweet, pungent, and hot. And rely on fresh ingredient that it's not easy to find. This tiny, humble bistrò made the miracle. As far as now the best thai in Miami that I ever tried. The owmer it's an Italian guy and his wife it's at cook stove and magically gave you the full flavour of real thai home cooking. The larp was superb, the papaya salad perfect and the whole yellow tail snapper in sweet chilly sause absolutely to die for! Fresh as just cought, because Claudio choose those accurately and not too many, so they run out fast but you'll be sure to eat the right thing. The selection of all Italian wine have ridicolus price for the quality. You'll get an incredible and very rare ribolla gialla spumante by Primosic that I haven't find even in very upscale restaurant in Italy for just 30 $ and other wines from the same house for 20$ that's a steal ( for you I mean: a bargain not to miss, where have you ever seen a rest. that charge only 20% over the buying price of a bottle in the world?)
The courtesy and the passion of Claudio will make you forget the lack of decor, the restaurant it's very spartan but clean as a surgeon room. Price ridicolusly low. We will be here weekly to travel far for a price of a bus ticket! Pay a cloes attention to the grade os Hotness you'll order. Thai hot it's REALLY HOT!!! I mean, I use to eat pretty hot I like to have my mouth absolutely on fire and I NEVER Get the hotness I want. Here I have found my paradiase but the rest of my family wasn't able to mange it, was overwelming. They has to oder the rest of the food medium because even hot was too much. So be prepared there are 4 grade of hotness: Mild, medium, hot, and Thai hot. Thai hot it's only for people that want to cry all the time while eating or for Thai people...

“An unexpected jewelry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

This is a fantastic restaurant!!!!! We love Thai but we had very very bad experience in Miami , this is why I feel this was unexpected. Be sure to order the whole fish, which is more than exceptional ! This is not an expensive restaurant, and for instance they sell wines at a very honest price. The only challenge is how spicy? I would suggest don't order spicy spicy, medium it is more than good for me, but not for my husband.... He says this is the first restaurant he had the food as as spicy as he dreamed!

“Outstanding meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Drove over half an hour to get there from Weston, but the flavour and quality of the food was well worth it. Will go again, without hesitation!

Arrive early, have a Singha beer (or two!) and be patient as the place is small and the food is prepared from scratch by the husband and wife owners.

Not to be missed!
