“Great little place, tasty food, worth the effort to find.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I first came across this place many years ago and have been returning again and again. It continues to be a lovely friendly place and is now in the hands of another family member who is a really great chef. I always insist on sitting at the bar if I can, to watch the food being cooked.
On a quiet Monday evening it was once again an absolute delight with a small number of regular returning clientele. It is so charming and cosy. Good for solo eaters as well as groups.
There is something for everyone here from the most serious carnivores, fish lovers and vegans too. If time permits the chef will talk about the food and would surely add or omit ingredients for the more picky eaters. I don't believe anyone would leave hungry - the portions are very generous.

“Authentic Thai cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This cosy restaurant is situated along a canal and a bit off the tourist trail. They serve good quality, and in our opinion, authentic Thai food. For almost every dish you can choose between chicken, shrimps, beef or a vegetarian version. The staff is very friendly and prices are reasonable.

“A quiet place on a Friday night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This little restaurant is just around the corner from our (favorite) hotel, the MISC. It was a Friday night and everything was busy, but we peeked into this little (and I do mean little) place and saw some seating. We were warmly welcomed by the owner/manager and got a nice table in back. The place is small, dimly lit and cozy, with only about 5 tables.
The food was good, not overly spicy at all, and ample portions. But honestly, maybe bordering on bland.
Watch out and duck when you come in! The entry is narrow, about 5 steep steps down, and low headroom-all of which adds the the allure of the place.
All in all, not bad, and a nice escape on a busy evening.

“Fine Thai restaurant, but you can find better one in Amsterdam”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This little Thai restaurant is suited on a old canal in the centre of Amsterdam, near the Red Light District. It does not look like a typical Asian restaurant, but it is cozy. Food is average within Thai measures. You can find better ones on the Zeedijk of Westerstraat.

They do not have baby seats.
