Very good Thai food !

Very nice Thai cuisine in Knokke, good wine-list, friendly service, especially the owner Vincent guides you thru the menu in a very nice way. They could change the menu a bit more often, but a GREAT experience !

Excellent Thai Restaurant. I would recommand the " Orchidée" as starter. As main course I would recommand "canard au miel", or "Entrecôte tiède", or "Boeuf au basilic". But all zhe curry dishes are also excellent. The staff is really friendly and the whole staff is from Thailand, except the owner. Very cosy ambiance. Reservation recommanded. Possibility to reserve via Internet.

This is a very busy place, reservations are necessary. However, it did not meet our expectations. Although the food isn't bad, it's mediocre. Based on the Tripadvisor reviews, we expected more. We had, amongst other things, squid in soya sause. The sause was blend, didn't even taste like soya. Same for the duck with honey. No vegetables whatsoever, just plain... More

We went to this restaurant very late after a Cirque du Soleil show. We were very pleased to find the restaurant still open and we were even more pleased when we experienced attentive, impeccable service and delicious food in very generous portions! The bill for two with starters main dish and drinks was reasonable, less than 60 euros. I would... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was great; we had some very fresh and well prepared seafood. The multilingual staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The only flaw was that there were no fish in the aquarium. I highly recommend this place, make reservations! I would be happy to eat there again if I... More

Frequently visited Thai on the Lippenslaan. Does not look like much from the outside but the interior is great. Service and food are great. It was really funny to hear fluent West-Flemish from our Thai waitress.

Dined here a couple of times during the last ten years. During that time saw it change from a hard-working family restaurant to more of an average and stuffed tourist location. All that with a serious and unwarranted price hike. During, what will be my final visit, a street orchestra played for 20 minutes next to our table, making conversation... More
