Our menu was titled "Kotai Garden: Thai and Traditional Lativan Cuisine" and appears to be at this same address--so maybe the name has changed once again. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside enjoying the ambiance of Old Town Riga. Menus were nice since they had pictures...More

Don't be enticed by the pretty girls spruiking outside, or the delicious looking pictures of amazing meals they show you! Nothing is as it seems! After 3 weeks of the most amazing cuisine at very affordable prices in the Baltic countries I feel duped! Over...More

The menu pics do not correlate to the dinners that are dished up. Great pity because the girl promoting this place on the street was quite convincing. Expensive and not good quality in a city that delivers great food at so many places at super...More

I and my business partners were walking in Old Riga, looking for a place to eat, without any particular place in mind. The only condition was something local and traditional, so that my friends could better enjoy Baltic states :) First of all, I want...More

We used to LOVE this place and visited it pleeeenty of times, but than they renovated the cafe and totally changed personnel and i suspect cook as well. The last time we were there we got our favorite Tom Yum soup so watery and tasteless...More

Hands down, the worst 'dinning experience' I have ever had. If it can be called that. In the tourist centre it is easy to be swayed away from the mainstream pub grub locations and go for, and i quote, "traditional Latvian food". We started outside...More

Friendly staff but the food was horrible. Spareribs to fat, potatoes sloppy, and no free beer. The chicken burger comes out a waterfall. We left as fast as we could. The chef has no respect for his customers. It was a very bad episode of...More

The portions are small and look nothing like the pictures. The waitress couldn't even figure out whose meal was for who. The food is not good at all and the service is worse.

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.
