Best thai in town

Chef Khem is the best thai in town. He's always stressy because he works alone. His buffet is great, but this is not a classy night out.

We loved our first visit at Chef Khem ! The place is small but cosy, the food tasteful and freshly made. You do not have to wait as you go to the buffet . We enjoyed the friendliness of the chef.

Chef Khem is around for several years already, and they serve great authentic Thai food. Only open for dinner. During weekends, you can only have buffet, but it is a nice buffet. Worth trying!

Time stood still at chef khem restaurant. Was here several times and the food is just delicious. The space is small as it is always pretty busy and there a lot of 'stuff' crammed into the little restaurant, still with some thai food and import thai beer to wash it down, alsways a nice experience.

Always busy at Chef Kem despite it's location not being in an area known for it's restaurants. Leave your claustrophobia at home as every space not occupied by other guests is crammed full, chockablock with all types of Thai decoration which does add to the atmosphere. The food served here is authentic and very tasty. Also not so widely known... More

This restaurant is seen as the best Thai restaurant in the region and is is worthwhile visiting. Dishes are well balanced and the typical Thai. The chef has worked in renounced hotels before he started this restaurant with his family. Make sure you have enough time when you visit. When it's busy, waiting time can be above average.
