Large Thai restaurant in the city centre. It's not the usual elephant and statue decor, but a Dutch brown bar, which happens to sell Thai food. I started with a tasty chicken in bamboo leaves followed by a Massman curry. All the portions were large,...More

Had a quick walk round after leaving the coach. It was early and the weather was a bit miserable. The owner let us in for drinks and coffees even though they were not serving food. Very friendly and obliging.

I stopped in for dinner during a snowstorm. I ordered some spring rolls and asked the server for advice on a squid dish that was spicy. He suggested squid with onions and peppers. A nice, warming dish to fight off the snow!

The Chao Phraya serves wonderful thai food with lots of flavour. I had the chicken with cashewnuts and vegetables and my husband had chicken red curry. Well sized portions for a good prize. We highly recommend this place.

We stumbled upon this place and I'm glad we did! The food was excellent!! We especially enjoyed the chicken satay starter, the shrimp pad Thai and the salt and pepper squid. You won't be disappointed.

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
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
