“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

When i come to Amsterdam, always do my best to have a nice dinner in this lovely restaurant. Last time came with good friends from Spain, and we all enjoyed. Really good the starters (i always have the fish cakes, but my friends asked the coconut soup with chicken). Then we shared duck (amazing) and chicken with red curry. Deserts really good too. Lovely ambient, funny decoration and excellent service. I really recomend the experience

“Good Service, Cosy and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

One of my go-to restaurants when my palate is craving for authentic thai spicy taste. Menu has options different from run-of-the-mill thai menus. Great service. I have always gone there without reservation and even though busy- have never minded waiting for sometime for a table.
In addition to the food I like the staff and the ambience.

“Great Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Visited on a busy Saturday night after making reservations.
Staff very efficient and friendly, good atmosphere.
Best Tom Yam soup I've had anywhere inc Asia, and top Masman curry.
Went as a group where everyone was very pleased with the experience.
Like the corny Tie's inset under the glass table cover and the original wall art.

“Have the Salmon, Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

While in Amsterdam, when there is a zillion places to dine, we chose to eat at Rakang two times during our stay. Service is excellent, chardonnay good, dinner just awesome. Everything about this place is so good, makes for return visits everytime we are in Amsterdam. Hot tea service is cool.

“Not a excellent for me yet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We had 2 starters, the Tom Kha Kai soup, for us it could have been a bit more spicy, would have not drowned out the other flavours, but the overal taste was good. I am afraid if I order it next time and ask for it a bit more spicy that it will be much too spicy... but shall give that a try.
Then for a main course the Five buddies, yes 5 starters on one plate. All the flavours were as they shoud have been.
Unfortunately we also choose the Coconut brulee which is Euro:10,50. This was normal brulee with a few coconut pieces in it, for this price a big mistake, it was not worth even half that price.
Service we thought could have been more friendly, even with our smiles and thank you's it did not make much difference.
This will not be our last visit so be interesting to compare visits.
