The restaurant is located in the old town centre of Alkmaar and is a cosy little place. We had a sate, chicken soup with vegetables, two curries and mixed vegetables in oyster sauce. The food was good tasty meal, not spectacular but of really good quality. It didn't come cheap, with 18 euros for a main course, 7 for the... More

Went to this place based on trip advisor Rating. The pad Thai was ok, the chief's specialty (nr 81) was super! Alas we never got our first dish (although they mentioned it on the bill - and removed it straight after we complained), we got the wrong drinks and the spiciness was asked but not added. One of the waiters... More

This Thai restaurant is located in the centre of Alkmaar, near the shopping streets. I eat there several times, always for dinner, and like to go back. It is a good restaurant, with sufficient choices in the menu. The kitchen is open and the clients can see how the food is prepared; however, I think that the aspiration system should... More

We went to Khunchai on the advice of other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The staff was very helpful to theses non-Dutch speaking tourists, the menu was extensive and not overly priced. Our starter came and we enjoyed spring rolls, freshly made. We lingered over those and then our server asked if we would like our main course.... More

Very cozy small Thai restaurant. Always delicious food and good service. We go here a lot with friends and family. Remember to tell the staff if you want more spicy or less spicy. Really good and I can highly recommend it to anybody! They have a total of approx 15 tables so you might need to book in advance during... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant two night running, the staff are very nice and the food is wonderful. We tried different dishes each night and we're not disappointed, and you can see the food being cooked too.

Can't fault this place in any way. Great food and staff. Far superior to Chada Thai. Their prawns are lovely and fresh. Plenty spice in the spicy dishes.
