This is my first time meeting a scary waiter in thai resto, they are ussually very polite. But, here. The waiter was rude and unpolite. The food was ok! Just the service and the staff a bit scary.

I'd skip this restaurant (and wish we had). It was one of the worst Thai food experiences we've ever had. I'm sad to say but the food was really horrible. The ingredients were indistinguishable and half the ingredients listed (such as eggplant) weren't even in...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to

temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
