Last year I travel around south-east Asia...and of course I loved the cooking. Well, back in Santiago, I went one more time to Lai Thai and could enjoy again those Asian flavors and dishes. located in the Bio Bio quarter, a wild and fun ride in one of Santiago's most interesting places to visit (out of the crowd touristic places),...

Entering seems like a very simple place (well...it is!), but is full of details with the paintings on walls and floor. It is a good place to enjoy Thai food, is small but has a nice ambience with a very reasonable price and good taste food. Juices and soft drinks are very good, recommended totamente the "Sate gai" and "Sate... More

The food here is pretty decent as far as Thai in Santiago goes, an extensive menu which is reasonably priced with efficient service personnel to boot. The restaurant itself isn't very charming and they're not very well suited to take-out (i.e. no plastic dish/bowls to take a tom-yum goong soup home :( Overall its pretty forgettable since the neighborhood doesn't...

My wife and I have gone to the Avda Ossa location on two occasions, once for lunch and once for dinner. The service on both occasions was friendly, though the lunch server was new and not so knowledgeable. The food is quite fine, and quite reasonably priced (about 5600 Chp for a main dish). We've not tried the traigos, but... More

It has many places in Santiago, but the food quality is the same. By $6.000 (USD 10) you get a really tasty plate of thai food. I suggest the Pad Thai.

This restaurant has some of the best Thai food I've eaten in Santiago, at very reasonable prices. I went to the location between Luis Thayer Ojeda and Holanda just north of Providencia, for lunch several times, and have been very pleased with the food each time. They used to only have a few tables crowed against a railing, or the... More

Went to the Holanda location. Restaurant atmosphere and service a bit shabby but the food was just outstanding and the price excellent. Real authentic Thai flavors.

Good Pad Thai and everything very tasty, and low prices. I recommend Américo Vespucio place (Ñuñoa). It is a cozy place, not too big. Good for families during the day and couples in the night. Great service, very personalized. www.padthai.cl

I had heard so much about this place and how fantastic it is, and finally went to the new location in Providencia. I can´t speak for the location in Franklin which is the first and aparently (or hopefully) the best. The place is basically fast food thai style. Sauces are all loaded MSG and not too much flavor (typical "asian"... More
