We were the first customers of the day (4PM) and the service was on time and delicious. Very friendly team, all of them. The setting is simple, but the food is the best you can have in Playa.

We ate at Po thai 3 of our 6 days in Playa del carmen. The staff was serviceminded and happy. The redcurry was delicious. If you are tired of the mexican food you must go to Po thai. The drinks were also nice.

My boyfriend had another dish served in a carved pineapple and it was excellent as well. The service was great, friendly and fast. A great experience in a small... More

Absolutely fabulous experience!! As lovers of thai food we have been searching for an authentic thai restaurant and we have finally found the one. They even cultivate the species and herbs here themselves to secure the pure original flavors. The service was fantastic, but the food was fabulous. We travel and study a lot and even we are not professional... More

Best meal we ate while on vacation. Walk the 1 block from 5th Ave - you won't be disappointed. Great food, really personal service and great tasting drinks (best mojito I had).

Excellent flavours, service and all else. It's not easy to find an authentic Thai taste here but Po has it going on! Highly recommend the red curries and the mango sticky rice - tastes just like it does in Thailand!
