This place is amazing, the menu is quite complete with around 20+ dishes, including all-time popular choices. No deco as it is just a "picada" for a quick lunch. The prices are affordable so no complaints. Excellent Thai food with speedy service (I ate in less than 30 minutes so is really fast). Recommended for those looking for true Thai food and expect nothing more. Not recommended if you like fancy restaurants with lots of deco. A place to judge just for their food and speedy service.

This is not a restaurant, it´s not streetfood, it´s Lai Thai in Providencia. It´s a great place for a fast and authentic Thai lunch. It´s hidden between apartment buildings and has been expanding over the last years, renting one little shop after other and converting them in terrace for the kitchen. The Lai Thai menu hasn´t changed much over the last years, but I don´t mind, the dishes are big, always good quality and served fast. What can I say, you sit on plastic chairs, you drink your drink from a can and in 40 minutes you are out but that´s what it is and it works.

If you want the Lai Thai restaurant experience, with many more Thai options in the menu you should go to Lai Thai in Avenida Ossa.
