Good and affordable Thai food close to the centre of Leiden. Start with a typical Thai soup, but make sure you have enough water to extinguish the fire ;-) For the main course I would recommend the red curry and ask for extra spicy, if you handle it. Good service and very friendly owner. Try it yourself.

Really one of the best Thai restaurant i visited in The Netherlands. Really surprised me. And i was so happy with the fresh coconut water they served which was very tasty and they told me it was fresh! We ordered several kinds of curries and a papaya salad . Everything was tasty and authentic. It wasn't spicy at all but... More

This is hands down the best Thai restaurant in the Netherlands! It's a bit on the pricey side but the food is worth it. They also have my favorite coconut water as a drinks choice!

This place looks very nice inside, it absolutely benefits on the atmosphere. We had a dog with us and the stuff welcomed the dog with the same warmth as us; very friendly. The food was really good and served very quickly.

We thought it strange that for once there actually was a free table here , then we realized why , the place had this odd stale damp musty smell and the food was really over priced , charging extra for the rice on an 18.50 euro dish of curry ; we drank our beers and decided to leave ; when... More

I had dinner here with a friend on a Friday evening and we had to wait nearly one hour for our main course to arrive. The restaurant and the terrace were busy but not packed that evening, so I don't think it was an exceptional situation. Also I was struck by the prices: 19,50 euro for a main course is... More

I came alone on a Sunday evening. Didn't wait too long as complained by the reviewers below. I ordered green curry with beef. It tastes like it should be in Thailand. The portion is generous too. Will definitely come back.
