If you ever been to thailand food markets and liked it this is the place to go . The food is excellent and the prices are fair.The place is mostly packed by locals so you might have to wait for a table but its worth the wait.

If you want to taste real Thai food this is not the place to be. But if you are tourist and you don't know the difference between chinese and thai and just want to eat something, then you can have a try.

Come early, particularly on Friday, it's small and gets filled quickly. It's quite crowded but worth it. It's first rate Thai. The servers are friendly and the ladies cook in the same room. It's quite communal, expect to rub elbows, even if you don't intend to ;-)

Food was average, but tasty. Prices were higher than average, probably based on the convenient location off NieuwMarkt. Food was delivered extremely fast and we were seated right away.

Followed recommendations but disappointed. We had stomach ache afterwards. Had to pay for flat water. Pad Thai and spring rolls pretty awful. Won't return.

The place is crowded, we were near the door that didn't closed well, so we were constantly in the cold, and people never bothered to fully close the door and we had to do it every time. The food is a little bit too spicy, and not distinctive, doesn't have a great taste.

This restaurant reminds me so much of Thailand! A slightly shabby, small restaurant, with no alcohol, no pin and no ventilation (just as in Thailand) .. but the food is delicious! True Thai flavours, not adjusted to European tastebuds; their fishcurries are amazing, and good vega options too. Best Thai in Amsterdam!

Whenever i go to A'dam i make sure i eat at least once in this small but familiar place, their pad thai is the best i've ever had. I make sure i start with one of their fried appetizers, tryied some soups as well, everything is fresh and very good! Reccomended!

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
