We were looking to try some traditional Latvian food & the girl out front was very helpful in making our decision so we gave Kotai Garden Restaurant a try. The interior is stylishly decorated & has a nice ambience with music quietly playing in the back ground. The girls waiting were very friendly, efficient & quickly took our order. For... More

This was a super place. We went looking for a "good" meal......but everything was booked.....so we stumbled into Kotai. It is not fancy; it is not lavish.....but the food and service were great.....and the meal cost 30 euro with a beer and a wine. but the food was very Latvian classic.....we loved this place, even though it was basic

Please read my profile for my biases. Rarely have I seen a more polarizing set of reviews on TripAdvisor. In fact, when I first tried to review this restaurant it was listed as closed, although a Google search showed it as open. It bothered me so much that I had to go back, and it appears it is now called... More

I liked this place so much that I went four times in five days! It offers both Thai and Latvian food; both were delicious and the portions were big. The staff are friendly and welcoming and speak excellent English. The service was quick and efficient and I was offered a free shot of Balsam blackcurrant liqueur each time I ate... More

The food was okay, though we didn't all get what we ordered. Also the none of us got the food at the same time (between the first and last was more then an hour, and we were with only 4 people). The girls on the staff are very pretty and friendly but don't seem to know how to be a... More

Had lunch here twice, as the first day they had run out of the sour cabbage soup in a bread bowl, so I had the local pork dish. Both meals were very filling and perfect for a cold winters day between tourist activities. Prices were reasonable and the staff were friendly.

Was enticed inside by girl outside. Didn't feel that comfortable as guest kept coming in and leaving. Suspected I made a mistake tonight. Just ordered main course. Food a mugs eye full. My ribs raw inside. Wife had huge bone with pork around. (Not bad). Service. Girls don't give up your day jobs. Music. Far to loud for restaurant environment.... More

Kotai pirmsākumi meklējami 2000. gada pavasarī, kad tā dibinātājs, tolaik vēl tikai vidusskolas absolvents, sakravāja koferus un pārcēla savu iedzīvi no Latvijas dzestruma uz Taizemes tveici. Jau pirmajā dienā pēc ierašanās, saskāries ar vietējās kulinārijas maiguma un pikantuma galējībām, mūsu varonis sev apsolīja, ka no tām vairs nekad nešķirsies. Nekad, nekad.Pavadījis nākamos 12 gadus apceļojot Āziju krustām šķērsām, kāre pēc eksotikas bija beidzot apmierināta. Bija pienācis laiks apmierināt kāri pēc Latvijas. Jau pirmajā dienā pēc atgriešanās, saskāries ar pašmāju ēdināšanas iestāžu taizemiešu virtuves pliekanumu un nebaudāmību, mūsu varonis nolēma cīnīties pret šo kulināro netaisnību. 2012. gada vasarā durvis vēra Latvijas pirmais autentiskās taizemiešu virtuves restorāns Kotai. Pateicoties ēdienu sastāvdaļu autentiskumam un taizemiešu pavāra apmācīta personāla profesionalitātei Kotai piedāvātie ēdieni tiešām garšo tieši tā, kā tām būtu jāgaršo. Tie ir asi. Tie ir maigi. Tie ir burvīgi. 2014. gada sākumā, tā vietā, lai baudītu īstu Āzijas nūdeļu neatkārtojamo garšu, Tu nez kādēļ sēdi un lasi šo stāstu. Droši pasūti un mēs atvedīsim!
