Mr. Lam is a quite cool experience in Rio. A nice property, fine decorated, excelent staff, good choice of wines and drinks, inspired sound track, and well prepared food. I tried the lamb and Red Angus beef, and both were awesome. Last but not least...More

It's not the first time we went to this restaurant as we live in Rio. Good Chinese food with no match in Rio. Overpriced though. The first time we went in 3 couples and it felt we were charged for more bottles of San Pelegrino...More

Very good and fancy decor, attentive service, very good drinks, delicious, delicate food. Very rare to find good chinese food wherever one goes nowadays. This is the place. After many years, back to check and very good and pleasant surprise. Worth the detour. Good wine...More
