Nice atmosphere, nice food. Also able to take away noodles. Actually here are the best noodles I have tried. Thank you, KOTAI Noodle Boutique!

Kungu iela is within the tourist area and many of the restaurants there offer traditional Latvian cuisine. While many of the restaurants manage this with decency and dignity, Kotai/Garden seems fake from the beginning to the very end. The presence of an overly friendly greeter...More

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...More

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...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!
