This restaurant deserves its great reviews. The setting is very nicely decorated, including a japenese style tatami area. The service is very good, with an army of young women in asian style garb hovering around the tables serving customers.

The sushi is quite good by Brazilian standards, featuring salmon, white local fish, octopus, shrimp. Occasionally they also have tuna available, but it's touch and go. As is common locally many of the sushi offerings feature cream cheese and/or imitation shrimp (kanikama) which in my book precludes entry of a restaurant into the worldwide sushi hall of fame.

The thai food is good, with fresh ingredients and genuine Thai flavors. When the menu says something is spicy they mean it (bravo!.) I noticed the dishes (e.g. Tom Yum Goong) tended to be "dense" when I am more used to a soupy consistency but that is probably in the style of the chef.

I didn't get a chance to wander into Indonesian foods. There was an indonesian corn and crabmeat (I believe it was the real kind this time) soup on the menu which sounded delicious.

Deserts were tasty, including a great chocolate with pepper dish.

Drinks were good, including the tropical drinks one expects in a resort setting. The place also offers Brazilian and Japanese sake. I decided to try the Brazilian kind and it was excellent.

In sum, this place is a must visit for any hard core pan-Asian food lovers in the area.

Except for the pricey options of the menu, everything here is relaxing and demands a visit to look at it. It's Thay food, so don't forget to ask how spicey is the food before you order. There are japanese (sashimi, sushi) options as well.

This place deserves the best reviews, for many years is the best restaurant around Garopaba and Praia do Rosa.The atmosphere is cozy and unpretencious.Thay /Balinese Style.The service is gentle, but the best to say about it, is really the food.Is not cheap compared to local places, but if you compare with restaurants in RIO or SP is really reasonable .Everytime I´ve been there I was rewarded with a excellent, well prepared & tastefull food.
Love this place!
