“Excellent food in uninspiring surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We wandered into this restaurant looking for some food on a Saturday night- not the best time if you haven't booked. We'd been to one up the road which looked better on walking in, but was very dirty, and the waiter didn't seem to care - he didn't even give us menus for 10 minutes.
So we walked into Song Kwae, which looks very canteen like, but at least it was clean. We were just hungry and looking for something to fill us up. The waiting staff were very friendly and professional. The food was stunning. Really tasty, subtly flavoured. Not too expensive. Excellent. Highly recommended.

“Relatively inexpensive, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This place has pretty decent Thai food, not the best I've ever had in my life, but pretty good. It's a great place to stop in if you want a quick, decently priced meal. It's always very busy, another sign that it's a good bet. Service is very good, and the menu has a wide variety of choices. It's a pretty small, noisy place, so if you're looking for a quiet dinner, it's not for you. Also, large parties may have to wait a while.

“Simple surroundings great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We took some time to find it but worth the effort. Doesn't look much from the decor and seating but the food and service were excellent. Although it was busy which was a good sign the speed of service was still prompt. Also great value and worth the number one ranking for Thai food in Amsterdam on trip advisor

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went on New Year's Eve to get some quick cheapish food down before the beer onslaught. It did what we wanted, no frills, not bad.
