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), and the best location for hundreds of flea markets for all kind of things.

That make you hungry...what best to enjoy a great pad thai :)

Don't miss it...is a great tour the the day.

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 kung". Maybe the option to choose the level of spicy on the dishes would be nice. We need more places like this in Santiago, simple but they give what they offer!

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 offer much either.

Would go if you 'happen upon it' but otherwise don't stress.

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 they have a good selection of beers, which is in any event the better thing to drink with Thai food. We have no problem reccomending the restaurant.

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.
