Description: De ?correcte en vriendelijke? bediening van deze Thai neemt ?ruim de tijd om de kaart uit te leggen?. Dat is ook nodig, want de kaart biedt een ruime keuze aan gerechten waarmee ?alle smaakpapillen worden beroerd?. Waar de een spreekt over een ?gezellige inrichting? vinden anderen dat de zaak echt toe is aan een metamorfose. Dat dit niet afdoet aan het eten is duidelijk, want dit is ?gewoon een hele goeie Thai?.

Down the stairs near the canal, there is the restaurant in a tipical place. The food however is the main attraction! Skip the appetizer and enjoy your curry, they are all delicious.

I love Thai food and visit Thai restaurants whenever I can. With River Kwai in Utrecht I'm not too impressed. The location has its charms (city centre at one of the 'werf''s on the waterfront) and some downsides (no natural light and a bit oldfashioned: think dark carpet and candlelight) but the real disappointment was the food and service.

It is for sure the best Thai restaurant in Utrecht, with the best rice and the best receipts. The service is also very kind. It is not a super modern decorated place but with its simple decoration makes the stays there very special, in one of the "caves" in Oudegracht. Dont miss it if you like real thai food!
