It was a wonderful night enjoying thai food, together with visitors from USA and Far East! The restaurant changed the name and now is "Kaffir Thai"'instead of " Empire Thai".

Besides being surly & in a bad mood, the people who run this restaurant have never heard of cilantro, chilies, lemongrass, fish sauce, tamarind, coconut or any other Thai ingredient. I wouldn´t even call their vile curries Asian. Yes, it´s true, the Pad Thai was...More

Total disappointment, expensive, and can’t even classify the food served. Whatever it was it was not even good. We had dinner outside after a business meeting, and were told to leave the briefcase with inside the restaurant as a precaution due to the number of...More

the food is good, but the service is extremely bad. They put 12 peso service on your bill but we were wondering what the service exactly was about. Price on the bill was higher than on the menu, this was corrected after mentioning it.

Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings
combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to
make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy
sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to

by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the
port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest.
