Desperately searched for anything but Mexican, Italian or burgers. Found Po Thai just a few steps off 5th Ave. What a great find! The food was excellent. We shared a Pad Thai, Red Curry Tom Yum soup and both the red and green iced teas with milk. It was all very authentic and delicious. The server, Alphonso, was . He... More

The best thing at this unpretentious place is the core asset that every restaurant should have: its food. Being in such a touristic place such as PDC and not being a high end restaurant one would think that the quality of the food might suffer in order to be able to offer a well situated mid-range option for lunch &...

The place is quite small but the service was great!!! The food came out super fast and since we were super hungry we were very grateful for this. The food itself is quite good, I had a Pad Thai, it had a bit too much sauce for my liking but the flavor was nice. A little pricey but definitely the... More

Myself, my girlfriend and her parents went one night. We had read about on TripAdvisor. But actually went there by accident as a taxi driver dropped us at the place. Luckily after a little rant we spotted po Thai and actually wanted to thank the taxi driver. Was like it was supposed to be. Lovely food, great staff and cheap.... More

A lovely little restaurant with a genuine Thai chef which was recommended by the Thai therapist at our resort. We were warmly welcomed by Alfonso and had a great meal with drinks and dessert at a fraction of the cost at our resort ( including the return taxi fares!). Would recommend this place if you are looking for something a... More

I was there a few days ago, this restaurant is quiet small and unobtrusive but once there I was impressed. The service is very kind and friendly and the food is absolutely delicious! Try it out. Greetz from Germany.

I very like po thai, great menu, probably the prices can be a little bit lower but still ok...only one thing I always ask for the green curry, but some times it's super spicy (it's supposed to be spicy) and other times it's not, they can be more consistent in their recipies...anyway I recommend this place!

Can't be too picky as the Thai supply is limited in Playa del Carmen. The restaurant probably has the most genuine Thai menu around the 5ta avenida. The dishes aren't bad but sometimes lack a bit of flavour. I tried the Tom Yum Kai that wasn't bad but lacked the lemongrass kick, the Pad Thai were pretty good and the... More
