Description: 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. Order securely and we will bring!

I liked this place so much that I went four times in five days! It offers both Thai and Latvian food; both were delicious and the portions were big. The staff are friendly and welcoming and speak excellent English. The service was quick and efficient and I was offered a free shot of Balsam blackcurrant liqueur each time I ate there. Although the weather was very cold, it was possible to sit outside because they have large heaters, which made it comfortable.

The food was okay, though we didn't all get what we ordered. Also the none of us got the food at the same time (between the first and last was more then an hour, and we were with only 4 people). The girls on the staff are very pretty and friendly but don't seem to know how to be a server in a restaurant. We had to wait a long time to order even for our drinks. So we don't recommend this place, especially since it's quite expensive for Riga.

Had lunch here twice, as the first day they had run out of the sour cabbage soup in a bread bowl, so I had the local pork dish. Both meals were very filling and perfect for a cold winters day between tourist activities. Prices were reasonable and the staff were friendly.

Was enticed inside by girl outside. Didn't feel that comfortable as guest kept coming in and leaving. Suspected I made a mistake tonight. Just ordered main course. Food a mugs eye full. My ribs raw inside. Wife had huge bone with pork around. (Not bad). Service. Girls don't give up your day jobs. Music. Far to loud for restaurant environment. Would not go again. Would not recommend. Lots of work to do here.
