Great thai food, with attention and care to details. The food is executed and served to perfection. The service is friendly and the waiters are very helpful with the menu information. The ambiance is beautiful, although the tables are a little crammed to my taste. It's not a cheap restaurant but the food and the service worth every penny. You... More

The food was good, but not really thai. The Tom Yam soup was clear and not very tasty. But that was not the worst thing! When the waiter brought us the food he did not pay any attention and broke the glass of juice on my t-shirt and jeans! I was completely wet and sticky and with glass on me.... More

It is more of an authentic Thai restaurant. Porc dumpling as a starter os the best followed by the shrimp. My Pad Thai was too hot. Couldnt finish eating it. However they were kind enough to ask me if I wanted a New one with no pepper at all. My sister had the jantoon with meat and it was delicious.... More

Visited a couple of times and although staff are very friendly and attentive, the food is ok but does not have the spicy heat that Thai food normally has. I did ask for dishes to be "very spicy" but guess they cater for the Rio palette.

We went few times and always been disapointed. We always go back for the duck rolls starters that are just amazing with the pineapple shutney.

Nice people and comfortable restaurant but the prices are too high and the pad Thai too dry. Excellent gluten free choices and good English spoken by the waitress.

I have not travelled to Thailiand but since I went to the restaurant Marakuthai in Ilhabela I never stopped searching new Thai experiences. Well this time I checked in Rio. According to trip advisor this is the most chosen Thai restaurant in Rio. The architecture is nice, different; the environment is a bit dark for my taste but the candles... More

A mix of different flavours of Asia. Consider asking for the 2 mixes, they are like small portions of different things, perfect for a couple to try different flavours. Also for desert try the Gourmet Cafe, you'll get 4 mini deserts and 2 coffees in the end. The price is steep compared to other restaurants in Rio, but the quality... More
