Great looking restaurant with upstairs lounge chairs for when you have to wait for your table. It is a popular restaurant that serves delicious Thai food. I had the green curry with chicken. On the menu it said "2 peppers" as in hot and hot it was but still very tasty.

We always love going back to 'A Food Affair' because of the great service and the delicious food. The menu is changed often enough to accommodate regular visitors like us.

The food was okay (my pad thai was not special, but my beloved's curry was good), but we were still very hungry at home. Portions were small for what you pay for it. Besides that it is not allowed to share one starter and a main dish. I also had the feeling that they want to switch tables fast enough... More

I could totally recommand dinner at a Food Affair. Excellent Asian cuisine with a personal touch of chef Laurent. The menu changes frequently. The restaurant is rather small, but very cozy and not noisy at all.

A well composed oriental inspired menu with the freshest food, set in a nice atmosphere. Along with a good selection of wine and attention to detail makes this place one of my favorite spots to dine. Perfect restaurant to start a lovely night in Ghent.

We've visited this place for the second time now, and once again we were pleasantly surprised by the great food. A Food Affair is a small restaurant located at the center of Ghent within a short walk of the old city center. It's run by just two people, therefore there aren't many tables available... making a reservation is advisable! This... More

A simple place on one of the side streets of Gent, but you still need to book a table on a Tuesday night. Dinner for two for a 180euro was slightly expensive, but the quality and taste of food was good. I would more see this place as a Thai fusion, not so much traditional Thai food. There are not...
