“Best Thai EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Ko Chang serves the best Thai food I've ever had. It was so tasty, a bit spicey but wonderful. There were four of us including 3 Vietnamese who know Thai food. All of us were amazed with the flavors of the dishes. I believe the owner is from the UK and he and his friend wait on tables. The service is a little slow but but the wait is well worth it. Can't suggest a specific dish but don't miss thes gem ifyou are visiting Amsterdam. WE WILL BE BACK.

“Awesome Thai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is an excellent Thai restaurant. My wife and I have tried several Thai places in Amsterdam and this is one of our favorites. Try the Beef Kra Tiem Prik Thai, they will make it very spicy if you ask them to.

“Excellent Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

From the outside this restaurant doesn't look much but it is well worth going in.
Reasonably priced (for an expensive city such as Amsterdam), excellent quality and friendly service. I would highly recommend.

“Delicious, honest Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Haute Cuisine? No. Very good, honest Thai food? Yes!

2nd location of Ko change, and much needed since the place on the westerstraat is tiny and usually full. This new location is more spacious, and adds a lovely terrace (patio) on the relatively quiet and cute Bosboom Toussainstraat.

We had an excellent meal here with 6 persons, all sharing each others mains. Everything was delicous, not too salty (as is often the case with Thai food outside Thailand), with lots of fresh, cripsy vegetables, thai herbs, good meat, shrimps, squid and fish.

Service was very friendly, and so were the prices.

We'll certainly go here again!

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Ko Chang is a very quaint restaurant with wonderful food and great service. I would highly recommend it. We enjoy Thai food very much and this ranks up there with some of the best we have ever had. Each of us started with the Ko Chang Mixte which allowed us to try 5 -6 different appetizers. It was fun trying one of each of the appetizers they offered on their menu. Our main meals were Chicken and Yellow Curry, Pad Thai with Prawns and Fried Rice with noodles which contained about 3 different meats. All of us ranked their taste in the order I just listed them. We all loved the flavors of the Chicken Yellow Curry! I am not a huge fan of strong curry flavors, but this dish was delicious and you were not overwhelmed with the Curry. They blended all the flavors of the dish so well. We ordered the dish with medium spice. Of course, as with every restaurant in Amsterdam, you must pay for water. So, if you are in the mood for Thai, I recommend giving this place a try.
