“Fake Thai”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Oh, do not get me wrong, lots of Thais are working here, but trust me they did not learn to cook. This place is sort of a mix between a take out fast food Thai restaurant and as an after thought, maybe I will stay after all and sit at an extremely uncomfortable table restaurant. Of course, all of the Thai classics are here, but all done very badly, the flavors are non existent, the sauces are watery, there is no passion to the food, and you only go here for the same reason you eat in a fast food restaurant, just not that many options, so you choose the least difficult. Do yourself a favor, stay at home and eat a cheese sandwich.

“Good food but bad customer service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have been to this small Thai restaurant a few times. Their customer service have never been very good, but the food was good enough for me to keep going back. The restaurant works kind of in a cafeteria style. You go to the cashier to order and pay for the dishes, then bring the receipt to the kitchen area where they geive you an alarm device that goes off when your food is ready. You then go look for seats on your own and wait there until the alarm goes off.

When we went to the restaurant today, there were other people waiting in front of the cashier. We were standing closer to the seating area. An Asian woman suddenly came runninng over and yelled at us, saying in German that if we wanted to order take aways we had to order from the other section, and if we wanted to sit inside, she will "handle the seating". She was rude and we did not understand her accent, and had to ask her to repeat it again. She was very upset and yelled at us even though we were standing not one meter away from her.

Up until today, I had never seen a hostess at this restaurant that brings customers to their table before, and I did not appreciate the rude manner and tone of voice she adopted.

“Ok Thai fast food and nice terrace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Decoration is a trendy and food itself is okay Thai fast food. Like in most of places in Europe food is not even nearly as hot as it should be for authentic taste, but otherwise I liked it .
Compared to the restaurant prices in Munich generally, the food was a little bit pricey in my opinion. Around ten euros per portion.
Inside there is a couple of dining tables and outside you can find large, cozy terrace.
Place is located nearby Viktualmarkt, next door to the new indoor market.

“Very tasty Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

Right next door to the Hotel Blauer Bock. Unique and tasty food. Popular, so you might have a wait.

“Quick service and good Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011 via mobile

We came across yum2take by chance walking around Munich old town. Located near the Viktualien Market, it is cheap, no fuss dining, tables indoors and outside in plaza. Order at cash register and then get buzzer to alert you when meal is ready to be collected. Sunday night had steady flow of customers. Meals are freshly prepared, good serve size and flavoursome. English menu for non german speakers. Most dishes €8-10. Enjoyable and good for no fuss quick meal or if want to sit and linger. Has limited beer and wine selection.
