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

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.

Great Thai food, large choice on the menu, also for vegetarians. I've tried about four different items on the menu and they were all very nice. The menu is based on Europeans though; they have pretty much left out all the spices to comfort our western-Euro tongues (more chillies are added on your request though) All in all a very... More

This is the best Thai restaurant i know. The food is absolutely great! A explosion of all sort of taste. The ambience of this restaurant is less great, but anyway.. the food rocks! Since 2 years we visit Khun Chai every month.
