Even discounting the fact that authentic recipes were not used at all, the food tasted horrible. Flavours were not balanced. Some dishes (such as the green curry) was way too salty while other dishes were plain bland. Coming from Australia, where Thai food is high in quality and abundant, we were hoping for a spicy kick. However, very little spices were used. All four dishes were monotonous, boring, bland.

The chef is Argentinian, not Thai. The waitress told us he had apparently visited Thailand during his time. Our Thai friend who dined with us confirmed that the food is not even close to the real thing.

The place is just fantastic although very far away from the centre and bohemian neighbourhoods like San Telmo. Food is authentic and very delicate!

I you are by chance in Buenos Aires and would like to have a real Thai Style Dinner experience do not doubt it.
We had an absolutely wonderful evening, The food was so delicious, the perfect balance between sweet, salty, sour and bitter.

The stuff was very helpful ....Really quickly served ...Waited for 15 minutes for 4 different dishes and the ambiance was warm and relaxing.

It totally serves the purpose of eating Thai food. Place is cozy (regular tables and also a few floor tables which were great to eat with kids), price is OK, and food is good.

If you are around Barrio Chino, it is definitely a great place to eat! Not sure if I will go all the way there for Thai Food only though. (Although I did not try them, I heard there are other Thai restaurants in more centric locations).
