Friendly family business

Nice food, quite spicy. Good variation of food and beverages. Big portions, I always have to take half to go.

Cannot recommend this restaurant. Had eaten there a few times before. Reception was usually friendly but loud and long-winded. The food was generally good, the portions more than adequate and not overpriced. This last time, the only similarity to the above was the loud and long-winded welcome. The food tasted all right but there was no correlation between the size... More

Just across the road from the Crown Plaza. Great welcome. We are experienced in this cuisine and the food was as good as your bog standard Thai restaurant. Nice evening at a sensible price.

Went quite early on a Thursday evening and it was very busy but service quick and very friendly. We all had something different and all absolutely loved it. Would highly recommend.

I was planning to go to another restaurant, but since it was Monday they were closed. I stumbled upon Thanaphon on the way back to the hotel. An elder Thai couple seems to be the owner and also the staff. Compared to other Thai restaurants that is more basic, this one is nicely decorated. The menu consist of traditional genuine... More

We've been to Thanaphon twice since arriving a week ago. It offers what we like - traditional Thai food, with a neighborhood atmosphere. Located in the northeastern section of Weststadt, and a short walk from Bismarckplatz. The owner is friendly, accommodating - remembered us at our second visit. We had glasses of cool white wine, that were good compliments to... More

We are coming here for years. And the food never dissappoints. The food is very traditional and you can have it as spicy as you want. Never know what to order because it is all so yummy

We ate here last night and the food was great. We love the salads from northern Thailand (yam nua, laab nua) and here they didn't disappoint. I ordered a stir fry, and it was ok....the curries looked amazing, though. I should have ordered one. All in all, I would recommend this place. The service is very friendly.

A welcome surprise to us in our neighborhood, this family owned restaurant has been in operation for more than 15 years. The drink list is fun, the staff is kind, and the food is traditional Thai. It's not obligatory but consider reservations in advance and preorder your meal and desserts!

A warm welcome from a cold, rainy October night is always a good sign, and I wasn't disappointed. She meant it when she promised 'Thai spicy', and it was fantastic. I'll be making this a regular haunt on my Heidelberg trips.
