We had green curry and fried rice. Very good but missing some of subtle flavors expected of great thai food. But we're in playa...not phuket! Probably hard to find fresh tumeric and galagal here. We will go back fo sure.

Authentic Thai food at the best place of the Mexican Caribbean, but with the privacy of a nice terrace. Our chef is from thailand and he loves what he does.
