After our holiday in Thailand we Like to visit Thai restaurants. Had some good meals but never the "real" Thai experience. Now we found it! Erawan in Haarlem. Superb! Enjoyed every minute and every dish. Smell, taste and ambiance were great! We asked the staff to surprise us, so we did not choose from the menu. From starter to desert:... More

We were a table of 6. The restaurant was full and had a very welcoming atmosphere. On the other hand the food was average in terms of taste and presentation. Plus although the waitresses were working hard, they were so slow to bring our orders. One waitress forgot to bring our drinks order and the same waitress during taking our... More

It wasn't actually bad but I have had better Thai food. It was very popular with the locals. Service was a little on the slow side and we had been told that we had to vacate our table by 20:30. This time came and went and we had still not received our food. There are plenty of nearby good restaurants... More

I have been to this restaurant more then once and again the food experience is the thing that makes you decide to come back. An excellent choice of perfectly cooked dishes at reasonable prices makes this restaurant to one of the best in its kind. Though the service is poor: just two ladies for a fully booked restaurant with about... More

We try to go to Erawan at least once every 3 months but if it would be often that would be no punishment. This is really one of the best Thai restaurants in the Netherlands. It has great staff and we love the starter "Erawan" a great mix of nice starters. The rest of the menu items are also great... More

Had a few courses all of which were quite good. Service is also friendly. Prices are okay. Was actually there a few months ago so can't remember what we ate, but will certainly try it again. I just remember we were not disappointed...sorry! Oh, and it was a bit chilly whenever the door opened!

We LOVED the yellow chicken curry.. AMMMMMAZING! Now that we live back in the USA, we have visited several Thai places and have always been disappointed because... More

The food is simply delicious. My vegetarian friends also have decent choice from the menu. The restaurant is unpretentious. You can get takeaway as well. The prices are very reasonable. I would give it 6 points - "Extra Excellent" if I could ;-) My favourite are the curry dishes. (The dish is rather cooked in the curry sauce rather than... More
