A group of 4 of us ate dinner here in April 2016 after a recommendation from the hotel we were staying in. It didn't disappoint. All the dishes had authentic Thai flavours, as well as a good level of spice. The prices are pretty reasonable too for the Netherlands. This is amongst the better Thai restaurants we have eaten at...

First time at Khunchai and great! Nice friendly staff. For a Thai restaurant reasonable price and good food. Real Thai taste and good portions. Advise to reserve a table, certainly in weekend. Starter advise : fish-cookie

The menu offers a lot of choice, so it was difficult to make a choice but in the end we made it :). The food was really great, we all had something different but... More

The restaurant is located in the old town centre of Alkmaar and is a cosy little place. We had a sate, chicken soup with vegetables, two curries and mixed vegetables in oyster sauce. The food was good tasty meal, not spectacular but of really good quality. It didn't come cheap, with 18 euros for a main course, 7 for the... More

Went to this place based on trip advisor Rating. The pad Thai was ok, the chief's specialty (nr 81) was super! Alas we never got our first dish (although they mentioned it on the bill - and removed it straight after we complained), we got the wrong drinks and the spiciness was asked but not added. One of the waiters... More

This Thai restaurant is located in the centre of Alkmaar, near the shopping streets. I eat there several times, always for dinner, and like to go back. It is a good restaurant, with sufficient choices in the menu. The kitchen is open and the clients can see how the food is prepared; however, I think that the aspiration system should... More

We went to Khunchai on the advice of other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. The staff was very helpful to theses non-Dutch speaking tourists, the menu was extensive and not overly priced. Our starter came and we enjoyed spring rolls, freshly made. We lingered over those and then our server asked if we would like our main course.... More
