Azure Http Request quota?

Is there any throttling of requests that I should be aware when sending a lot of requests?

I was testing my service on kubernetes cluster with 5 nodes. API calls were very simple, just returning a string without any operations and it did process around 100 requests/sec, and with more testing it good lower and lower.

Even thought this is a cheapest tier for node pool (35€ monthly), i would expect it to perform much much faster.

Is my expectation wrong, or there is something else im missing?

Thank you!

    @Tomislav Đurić : when the requests first reach ARM, the requests are checked on the ARM level and throttled if the requests exceed the limit. Once the request passes through the ARM, it goes to the particular resource provider ( for example, CRP - compute resource provider, NRP- network resource provider), and then limits are checked against those resource provider and the corresponding resource.
