Extremely attentive service, very fast. Most Thai classics on the menu. Great starters, especially the mixed platters. Good curries, nice and spicy. All in all, very good quality food, well presented, well served. The wooden decor gives the place a warm and cosy feel.

I was recommended this place by a Concierge friend and I absolutely loved this place! Awesome Thai noodles, beautiful atmosphere, hands-on manager, absolutely worth a visit, even being a bit on the pricey end! For sure one of the best restaurants in Rio de Janeiro!...More

This was the best asian restaurant we've visited during our stay in South America. However, compared to European restaurants this is not one of the stronger ones. You get what you expect but nothing more. Worth it but dont get your hopes up. Had a...More

Try something else !!! I ordered a vegetarian red curry and got some salat mixed with a extremely salty sauce. By the way.. it also had some sand inside that almost broke my boyfriend tooth.

This is my second review. The other one was two years ago. Once again, we had a fantastic meal. Even though the name of the restaurant is Nam Thai, the menu goes well beyond Thai cuisine. It is innovative, and mixes in many Asian influences....More

In addition to being one of the most upscale
neighbourhoods in the city, Leblon is charming,
elegant and simple. This posh area has some of the
most famous and expensive restaurants in Brazil, along
with some of the city’s best nightlife (including some
places open all night). One of the best places to

“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
