Bad service, really weird atmosphere, and horrible pisco sours. DONT't get the salad, it was drowned in pineapple juice, which it didn't mention in the menu. HOWEVER, the Tom soup with Mariscos is amazing and so is the green chili. I'd eat here daily for that soup!

This was the most expensive place I ate at. I ordered the vegetables and tofu in red curry and cocomut milk. When it came, it was not red curry or coconut milk, it was vegeables and tofu in what tasted like a bland, canned sweet and sour sauce. Someone else ordered another dish that was so overwhelmed with cloves, that... More

We came in la Paz and slept in a hotel just next to this restaurant so we tried it. The location of this place is quit central and the building is nice, inside and out (you can't miss it). The decoration inside is interesting and represent the asian ambiance, the tables are well presented will real fabric napkins, it was... More

Nice deco. You should definitely visit the second floor and ask for a little spice on the food. Had Indian food and it was pretty good . It's not expensive and you can stay for hours

First off, I had the spicy chicken peanut curry. Really good. Would order again. The egg rolls (squares, actually) were really good. My girlfriend had the Phad Thai which is an obvious test of any place claiming to serve thai food... It was not phad thai. She didn't really care for it. I would say it tasted alright but it...

Must have caught this place on a bad night, but main course Lamb Korma absolutly terrible. No flavour and not a korma at all. Entrees of satay and samosa ok but rest of meal could not be eaten. What a dissapointment.

Love this restaurant! Delicious Aisian food, a really cool ambience, good service and the owner Alex is a top guy always happy to help you out with tips on what to do in Bolivia. He has a tour company too so ask him for whatever you need. Best meal I had in Bolivia.

We were impressed with the romantic design of the restaurant, but especially liked the diverse Asian food ( Excellent Pad Tai ) special juices and the far-east flavors in general is hard to find in Bolivia. Tip: Their hot dishes are very spicy but you can accommodate by personal tastehighly. Bon Appetit

We weren't sure whether the restaurant would have authentic Asian food given previous experiences in other restaurants in La Paz. But this place blew us away. We had a vegetarian peanut satay main to share and Tofu skewers (which we cooked ourselves on a mini BBQ). The food was fresh, authentic and enough for two. More importantly it was DELICIOUS!!!...

There are too few places in La Paz that do amazing Asian cuisine. Its close to the tourist area and worth the 15bs cab ride. The restaurant has two levels each with a different atmosphere, The lower lever is open and light with a gas heater for the colder nights, The upper floor is cosy and intimate, great decor, sitting...
