Dear Jayensh, I'm sorry for your desappointment, really our food is adapted for the brazilian taste, also we don't have some authentic thai herbs here in Brazil. We are already 20 years in the market and always trying to satisfy our costumers, What did you...More

It was my second visit to Sawasdee. I like to do it to get a new perspective. Yesterday, the restaurant was full. It could be very noisy but not uncomfortable. There is a vallet parking in front of the restaurant that charges R$ 20. It...More

Even arriving half hour after the opening hour, we are the first table. The names are impossible to pronounce. We are the appetizer mix. It is impossible to be better. For the main course, we chose Kung kaeng khaw, the spiciest plate. Don't be afraid....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
visit is the beach, located under the impressive
“Morro Dois Irmãos” (Two Brothers Hill). It’s a
