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!

My husband and I used to live in Haarlem about 2 years ago. We ate at this restaurant probably once a week… there isn't anything they cook that is bad… everything is AMAZING! 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

One of the better Asian/SE Asian restaurants in the Netherlands that we've eaten in. However, like most places offering 'spicy' food here, they've dampened down the flavours a little in order to cater for the rather sensitive palates of the Dutch for whom bland dairy products are a dietary mainstay. That said, our party of four - two of whom... More

Erawan is probably the most popular Thai restaurant in Haarlem and surrounding districts. It serves some fairly authentic Thai dishes without cheating too much with MSG (flavour enhancers). This time we had the spicy chicken soup (Thom yam kai), followed by two main dishes with tofu and seafood. Both were tasty, rich and spicy as it should be, only one... More

We asked a local where to eat in Haarlem and thankfully she sent us to Erawan! It's a bit off the beaten path, but well worth the effort to get there. The front of the restaurant was full, but we lucked out and got a quiet table in the rear. Initially, service was a little slow, but the restaurant was... More

We have eaten at Erawan about 6 times now and our visit on Thursday evening was certainly as good as all the other times. The Thai dishes are presented beautifully by very attentive staff. The atmosphere and surroundings are wonderful. It is great value for money and we will be back for more.
