Good alternative to those seeking sustenance at Tempo Doeloe

All I wanted to do was get to Tempo Doeloe (as featured in The Layover series with Anthony Bourdain) but they were like “Um it’s 7:00pm and you want a table for two? Come back at 10:00pm! Thanks but no thanks.” This lack of person ability left us hungry for something else, and right down the... read more

There was 20 of us that eat at Take Thai, we reserved a table online and they organised us a set menu. It was gorgeous, fresh, tasty and really reasonable. The service was excellent and definitely recommend a visit!

Decent thai food at good prices. They dish out big piles of Pad Thai and curries from trays (like at a food court). I was a little disappointed that food was not fresher (they asked me if I wanted it re-heated), but other than that, it was good.

Take Thai is a restaurant in the center of Amsterdam on one of the nicest locations, the Utrechtse straat which in itself is worth the visit. It is not decorated in the traditional Thai style, which is a welcome change. Obviously they wanted something else and quite succeeded. The cocktails are great. I usually only drink beer at a Thai,... More

The food here is exceptionally good. Thai perfection. Loved every bite. Atmosphere is nice, clean, bright, very friendly service in one of the nicest streets of Amsterdam. The higher prices than you would expect from a Thai restaurant are totally worth it. Would recommend it to Thai-food lovers that don't mind a regular bill.

We ordered the €27.50 set menu and added to it. Food was full of flavour and the service was very attentive. We enjoyed the meal but the minimalistic interior is verging on stark and does not help in creating a particularly warm atmosphere.

We eat at Take Thai all the time we visit Amsterdam and all the time we find a new reason to come back again, and again and again. The owner is really friendly, the atmosphere warm and clean and food is outstanding. Bravo!

The price of menus are too high for what we had to eat. Very good soup and prawns. The fish was very "gluant". Since we know well cooking from Thailand, it's very far from the true tahi cooking. I was hungry at the end of the dinner, I asked for white rice and they were nice enough to propose some... More

Not a very special occasion. Friendly and good staff, quite nice place. Food is average, I won't recommand this place for it's excellent food. Red curry with meat, curry is good, meat is dry. Green curry chicken is watery. Starters are oke, not special. Prices € 35-45 for a 3 course a la carte meal without drinks.
