“Very good food served with a smile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

It is a lovely cosy restaurant amidst Jordaan. It looks modern and clean, its decor is simple with a touch of stylised traditional Thai features. Service is quick and food is simply good: fresh, light and well thought through menu with a decent vegetarian part. A glass of "house wine" is one of appropriate quality to make you feel even more comfortable. In short - a pleasant surprise and a delightful place to come back to.

“Nice Thai restaurant in Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

Thai restaurants are quite rare compared to Indonesian ones in Amsterdam. So we were quite pleasantly surprised when we found it. The food was tasty and fresh. The decor was modern with just a hint of Thai-ness. Nlce place tomgo back to.

“Herenstraat Restaurant...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This Thai unfortunately is in line with Herenstraat experiences - pretty facades, large prices but actually nothing spectacular at the end. The restaurant is one of a number of pretty looking side walk diners, and in line with its neighbors, certainly is very pretty. The prices are - given that this is high end tourist heart land - unsurprisingly high. The food itself was not convincing - the Tom Kha was very sweet and rich in coconut, but lacked any real flavour or spices. The main course, we chose a curry and a special beef salad were tasty but again nothing special. Its safe and sound and the location wins for any romantic minded travelers.

“Kularb Manee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Another fun little sidewalk dining place on a picturesque street in Amsterdam. To top it off, the food is great! Service is very attentive with two very hardworking and helpful young women tending to the tables and interpreting the menu. Try the Tom Yam. It is a light broth with mushroom, scallion and a choice of fish or chicken. The fish was perfectly cooked so that a few tiny slivers could be included in each spoonful of soup. The Squid, fried and served in a spicy curry sauce was delightful. It was not overly spicy ( OK, I am from Texas so I like heat but this was mild.) The delicate slices of calamari had been split and scored in such a way that when they were lightly fried in a wok they curled up and looked like morrell mushrooms. Near the end of the meal a very talented busker violist began playing classical music standing down the street in such a position that diners from all four sidewalk cafes nearby were able to hear and enjoy it.
