The Thai food - especially fresh seafood - was excellent. The pub is a great spot, full of expats and mozambicans all mixing together for drinks and conversation. Feels comfortable from the moment you walk in.

This is a very good restaurant in Maputo for Thai food. It is also a great meeting place with a lively cozy bar. Waiters always smiling and having fun. Great bar with great atmosphere. The owner goes out of her way to please the customers always listening to what they would like to have that is not on the menu... More

This is the best of the Thai restaurants in Maputo. Its on a side street right in the downtown area, with a charming outdoor atmosphere. The food is delicious and the drinks are some of the most affordable in the city.

starter was almost unedible because of excessive lemon juice. My red curry was extremely salty. there was a huge wait +40 minutes for a simple desert. Not as good as it once was. I wouldnt be back.

As with all of Maputo, the seafood was brilliant and a great choice, Staying for a couple of weeks on business, Pekai was a refreshing change from hotel food.

References from several residents were promising, but the actual experience was disappointing. Food not really hot, prawns in a greasy dish not peeled, you must separately order rice with a dish, etc.

Good service at the bar, customer conscious, and the best Green Curry. Must try Coconut Prawn Curry and No.16 as starter.
