Just off Avenida 24 de Julho, this restaurant catches the eye from far with enticing lighting and decor. This is also not too far from the hotel strip and upmarket area of Avenida Julius Neyerere, so it is a short safe walk for the traveler...More

It's a great hang out. The food is delicious. Very good menu at reasonable prices. Sit inside and watch the TV. Or sit outside and enjoy the evening in the small garden. I enjoyed the green curry dish.

Excellent, food, the waiter was not too efficient in English but we managed to order what we wanted and got what we ordered.

The Thai food - especially fresh seafood - was excellent. The pub is a great spot, full of expats and mozambicans all mixing together for drinks and conversation. Feels comfortable from the moment you walk in.

This is a very good restaurant in Maputo for Thai food. It is also a great meeting place with a lively cozy bar. Waiters always smiling and having fun. Great bar with great atmosphere. The owner goes out of her way to please the customers...More

This is the best of the Thai restaurants in Maputo. Its on a side street right in the downtown area, with a charming outdoor atmosphere. The food is delicious and the drinks are some of the most affordable in the city.

starter was almost unedible because of excessive lemon juice. My red curry was extremely salty. there was a huge wait +40 minutes for a simple desert. Not as good as it once was. I wouldnt be back.

As with all of Maputo, the seafood was brilliant and a great choice, Staying for a couple of weeks on business, Pekai was a refreshing change from hotel food.

References from several residents were promising, but the actual experience was disappointing. Food not really hot, prawns in a greasy dish not peeled, you must separately order rice with a dish, etc.
