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

I really wanted to give it a better rate. Whilst having dinner with my wife I was trying to find reasons to like it more but... Food was nice she said to me but thats all I could say. Nice but not delicious and for the price (a bit on the high side) certainly not the best deal around. A... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. The price seemed a little high, but it was a large entree and included a salad and dessert. The waitress was pleasant and helped point out the vegan dishes on the menu. There were tofu options for all entrees and sorbet for dessert. Nice beer and wine selection.

Terrific food and good ambience. We love Thai food, and were surprised to find it in this neighborhood. Possibly the best we've ever eaten. Recommend highly!

It has been difficult finding authentic Thai restaurants in Chile. Although Samsara also does not meet the authentic level, it is nevertheless a very nice place with good food. DH had the green curry and thought the vegetables were fresh and nicely prepared, but although pleasantly flavorful, it was not spicy enough. On a scale of 5, the spice level... More

This was our first dinner in Valparaiso. After being away from home for over two weeks we missed Asian food and were skeptical in trying Thai food in Chile. To our surprise, the food was authentic and delicious. The flavors were on point and the ingredients were fresh and well prepared. The menu is only in Spanish but the waiter... More

Decent food and friendly staff. But service was mind bogglingly slow. Staff was a little frazzled and overwhelmed. Probably wouldn't go again

This was the best food we had in Chile so far. Fresh vegetables, great curry, great spices. The cook did an amazing job. We were impressed. The only thing I would improve is service. The staff needs to pay better attention to customers. We had to wait for our bill way too long. Apart from that, the restaurant is brilliant!... More
