If you have any familiarity with Thai foods their menu will resonate for you. If not, don't worry as they can make you introduction, if at that stage, a memorable event. They can prepare it with varying levels of spice as you would prefer. Their meals tend to be a set format of main dish and or entree with a... More

Open until late, you can get some amazing food with a good service (apart from the cashier, who was a bit rude). My girlfriend and I ordered the Gaeng Karl Kung to share with the Passionfruit sorbet as desert, suggested by the waiter who was extremely friendly and professional! The spiciness was on point, the flavors were to die for.... More

We went here to get a change from the yummy Chilean food during our 2 week trip. We waited for about an hour to get our food since there was another big group of 8 they were catering too. I expected them to tell us in advance that it would take more time rather than apologizing while paying the check.... More

Went looking for a place to eat our first night in Valparaiso and saw this little Thai place. Got very excited as I love Thai but there were no tables. Went back especially the next night as it smelt so wonderful. And I was very happy we did! They offer a 3 course meal for a set price which was... More

Several Chileans from cities other than Valpo had told us to book a meal at restaurant when they heard we were coming. It's a tiny restaurant so you are unlikely to get in without a booking. You pick a main dish of Thai classics with their twist, and salad and desert (which you also choose) come as standards. My spouse's... More

Yum yum yum! Not the cheapest in town but still worth every cent! The meal included salad, rice and a dessert (which I probably didn't need) but it was all tasty. Would have preferred to be able to pay a bit less and just have the main.

Close to our hotel in Valparaiso is this small gem we discovered. All entrées come with salad and dessert, its small so sit by the window and people watch. Love the pad Thai! We thought we were in California (:!

We have enjoyed this restaurant two or three times before because of its Thai dishes. They offer a menu that includes a salad, main and dessert. It is not cheap, (16500 per menu), but in our previous experiences it has been worthy it. Unfortunately, after our experience today I can't rate it as highly. Firstly, the service was quite slow....

I've been to this restaurant 4 times in the course of three years and has never let me down. Food and service have always been excellent. I like mild spicy food, probably a 4 in a scale of 1 to 10, and I must say they have always guess it right. In case you want more, but you are afraid... More
