Was reccommended by a local person; that this was the best Thai in the area. We weren't disappointed. The food, the service, the wine and atmosphere was stupendous. Good size portions with lots of fragrant flavours. We had the satay chicken and the ribs to start and Pad Thai for main course all delicious.

We had been doing the Red Light District for a few hours and were tired and hungry. Were heading out of the area to find a spot for dinner and came across this restaurant. Weren't quite sure about it but are really glad we stopped. Very cosy, view of the kitchen, polite professional service, (even though we only ordered one... More

Arrived with minimal expectations but food was first class. Intended to sit outside but soon suffered a shower but despite being busy a table inside was soon found. If you like Thai food this restaurant is a must.

This used to be my favorite Thai anywhere in the world. I heard a few years ago it had changed owners and went there soon after, finding it much the same. This time, though, it appears the new owners have put their stamp on the restaurant. Appetizers are close to what I remember, but we ordered our "usual" of Beef... More

We turned up as a group of seven with no reservation on a Friday evening but managed to get a table. Service was excellent and it was explained that as food is cooked fresh there would be a delay if we all had separate dishes. We chose some mixed starters and three mains to share and these all came in... More

Had a craving for Thai dinner on my last day in Amsterdam and choose the Kooning van Siam after reading Trip advisor reviews. This is a very tiny restaurant located along Voorburgwal canal near the RLD. The ground floor has probably 5 tables and theres also a 1st floor. At 9pm the restaurant was already full and I was regretfully... More

Went to de kooning van siam with friends. It's a cosy, friendly place. There is an open kitchen so you can see them freshly prepare the food. I would describe the food as no-nonsense, westernised thai food. But the quality and taste are very good. They have an interesting take on curry, roasting the meat and adding the sauce later....
