Kungu iela is within the tourist area and many of the restaurants there offer traditional Latvian cuisine. While many of the restaurants manage this with decency and dignity, Kotai/Garden seems fake from the beginning to the very end. The presence of an overly friendly greeter...More

We were looking to try some traditional Latvian food & the girl out front was very helpful in making our decision so we gave Kotai Garden Restaurant a try. The interior is stylishly decorated & has a nice ambience with music quietly playing in the...More

The origins of Kotay are in the spring of 2000, when its founder, at that time only a graduate from high school, loaded suitcases and moved his country from Latvia's coolness to Thailand. Already on the first day after arrival, I faced the extremes of the local culinary delicacy and spell, our hero promised himself that he would never be different from them. Never, never. She spent the next 12 years crossing Asia across crosses, and greed for exotic was finally pleased. It was time to satisfy the desire of Latvia. Already on the first day after returning, faced with the persistence and inertia of the Thai cuisine of the local dining establishments, our hero decided to fight against this culinary injustice. In summer 2012, the first Latvian authentic Thai cuisine restaurant Kotai was opened. Thanks to the authenticity of the ingredients in the dishes and the professionalism of the staff trained by the Thai cooks, the specialties offered by Kota really taste exactly as they should have been painted. These are sharp. They are gentle. They are charming. At the beginning of 2014, instead of enjoying the unique taste of Asian noodles, you never sat down and read this story. Order securely and we will bring!
