Thaico is located in parque lleras and offers a variety of Asian food as well as some standard bar food (burgers, fries, etc.). I have eaten here many times with friends and also enjoyed the good drink specials. As a bonus it is a good place to watch people strolling about the park or heading to nearby restaurants.

We went here for a drink and a small bite in the afternoon. We chose this place, as there were some other tables occupied. it seemed to be a good place to have a drink and enjoy the afternoon. We took the nachos, with some Corona beers. We got some lime in our Corona's, which was good. But the nachos... More

We spotted this place from the plaza below. The view is nice from their second floor seating, and they offered 3 for 1 drinks. When we saw the 3 for one specials, all too sugary, we decided to order wine and regular drinks. Doesn't seem they are used to serving these. It took them FOREVER to bring us the bottle... More

We stopped in here for a quick bite and drink, but found ourselves wishing we went elsewhere. None of the dishes we wanted were available. The staff seemed under-trained and slow. I think they are used to people only ordering from the 3-4-1 drink menu because our server seemed confused when we ordered wine and rum from the regular menu.

Thaico has a nice menu that is different from the usual South American offerings. We went for dinner and the food was lovely, service was OK and because it was happy hour didn't cost a lot. The place is popular so get there earlier (before 7.00 to 7.30pm) to make sure you don't have to wait. On Friday night they... More

Great spot accross from park llara , generous portions and great food. Drinks. Just bring your cell phone or a small light. I found it hard to read the menu. The Staff keep the lights low. Worth the squinting!!

We only had drinks and an appetizer of nacho chips and side dipping sauces. The chips were quite tasty, but the real bonus here are the alcohol costs. Depending on your preference, there is either 2 for 1 or 3 for 1 pricing . So come here for the drinks and the great people watching in this fun and energetic... More

I go to Thaico for drinks and people watching a few times per month. I have tried the food before, thus I only have myself to blame for trying it again. We ordered the picada and it was basically a plate of cold French fries and tough beef and chicken. Not good. The reason for this review is to warn... More

This is a "Thai" restaurant that features philadelphia steak sandwiches and burgers in its menu, among many other non-Thai dishes. The Thai platter of appetizers included chicken fingers (!!) and calamari rings with chewing gum texture. All straight out of a frozen package abd deep fried in re-used oil. I thought it was hard to ruin a curry, but this... More
