Super chill and a good place to eat in the middle of Rio. Not expensive and good food. They do take some time to bring in the food sometimes.

Butter chicken was above average. It tasted better after we added a bit of salt in it. The rest of the indian food was below average. We had phad thai and thai red curry which was amazing. Good service

Discovered this by chance recently and now visit at least once a week! The restaurant is basic, the location great. It has very nice waiting staff and does amazing giinger martinis! I am not a lover of restaurants that mix different styles of Asian food...More

This is a good option in a suburb with lots of expensive restaurants. It's well priced with decent portion sizes. The food is good and authentic enough to satiate any cravings for Asian food. It's not the best Indian or Thai you'll ever have but...More

Visited this restaurant during the Rio restaurant week. We suggest that when you go, avoid sitting next to the noisy neighbor next door restaurant. Portions are very small and somewhat greasy. I would not call that Thai food. Maybe a mix of oriental food, but...More

The pakoras were not pakoras and were over cooked and just generally not tasty. The lentils with rice was something you could make in 2 minutes with a bit of garam masala - flavourless and over priced. The fresh rice paper rolls were the size...More

Nice location, cute decoration. The food is okay, the service could be better, but has a nice price for an oriental food restaurant.

Severely fell short of expectations. In happening Leblon, but the food left was sub par. Samosa was squished.. No flavors. Veg dish seemed way to sweet without much texture to it. Perhaps good for Cariocas who have not experience Asian cuisine.

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
