Best Thai food I've had in a long time and I live in LA! Server asked us what we like and created a 3-4 course meal for our table! Everything was excellent! We took our kids ages 7 and 10 and the restaurant worked with...us as it's really not kid friendly in terms of the menu, but they loved the food!More

If you go by the chef’s choice, with any mention of dietary rest, he can do it all! This restaurant is on! Young crowd, good atmosphere and great Dj

Excellent Restaurant, Great ambiance, good music, amazing food & bar, professional, very friendly and generous service. Order before 7:30pm and get 20% discount is their concept and we allowed our waiter to choose for us. We will definitely come again.

This place was highly recommended by a friend, who's a chef. The menu is divided into three sections: small bites, mid-course ('beinayim') and mains. After eggrolls from the small bits section, which were adequate, we ordered chicken legs from 'beinayim' and pork belly slices (Moo...Pad Cha) from the mains. The chicken legs came accompanied by papaya salad AND a big portion of rice, which didn't really seem necessary, whereas the pork came accompanied by nothing, although we felt some rice was badly needed to offset the spiciness of the dish. Very strange division into what is considered mains or 'beinayim'. When the prices are high, e.g. the cheapest glass of wine is NIS 42 (€10), you have somewhat high(er) expectations, which, in our case, were not met. I'd go back any time to the Thai House in Bograshov, with much more reasonable prices.More

We've visited Kab Kam during the weekend with a couple of our friends. The hostes and waiters were very inviting and the overall environment was great. We started with Som Tam salads, shrimp and fish egg rolls (poppa Tale...or something in that neighborhood:-) ) which...were good. We also ordered the wining starter dish, which was white fish inside a lettuce leaf with, I think it was was, fried coconut, and cashew nuts in tamarind sauce...super tasty. We continued with vegetarian, and sea food main courses which were Ok, but none of them were worth the cost: tale pad cha, and pad Kapaa tale, pad pad ceau ..almost $50 per the 1st two main courses. There are many other Thai options it TA which don't rip a hole in your wallet. For the entire meal we've spent I average ~450 ILS incl. Tax, cocktails and tip.More

I WILL NEVER COME BACK We used to come to this restaurant once a month and it was great. Now after we haven't been for a year BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!! The portions were MINIATURE and the taste was average. The cocktail was 75% ice - not...even possible to order without ice, we tried. The fried sea bass with cabbage used to be huge! Starter that was easy to share with 3 people in the past. Now it was the third of the size it used to be, with 4 small pieces of fish for almost 80 shekel! The fried fish for 138 shekel was also smaller. Also off season they didnt have mango and replaced with apple- which we knew though!The dish was too sweet. The sticky rice was also half of what it used to be! VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!! I am not sure what happened? It didn’t feel like a special restaurant worth the money anymore.More

This is a really cool place! The food was bursting with flavour, succulent and fresh. We ate it like Spanish tapas but I think there are bigger dishes too if you don't want to share They told me to ask for what I want when...it comes to cocktails as what they serve is more extensive than the menu. So I asked for a pornstar (martini). They didn't have passion fruit so they made me a martini with grapefruit and honey - it was absolutely delicious! A big thank you to Luc (and I'm sorry I didn't catch the waitress's name)! I can't believe they were down four staff members (due to having to go into isolation because of corona virus policy) service was really good! I hope to come again (Dani from London)!More

Lunch for three with favorable experience with most of the dishes means that if you're looking for Thai food put Kab Kem on your list. The place gives the impression of being more of a bar place than a restaurant so dinner experience could be...different.More

You wouldn't necessarily think of Tel Aviv as a great place for Thai food but you would be wrong. Kab Kem was a real find. The dishes were absolutely delicious. Thai but very different from the 'normal' fare that we are used to in London....Would highly recommendMore

Short and sweet summary: The service is really, really good - the highest standards and the food is truly delicious. It is worth your time and money to eat here. Ok - now a bit more with some details: The people at Kab Kem truly...know how to treat their customers. Our reservation was for 8 pm. At like 8:10 they said there would be a slight delay and if we would like a free drink while we waited. We all took wine or beer and my Japanese beer was very good. We were seated around 10 minutes later and the server noticed our table was a bit small so she brought over another table so we could have more room. In short - they do the "little touches" that make you feel special and important. Simple things like laying out the dessert spoons individually and not just "dumping" them on the table. Our server was amazing - she knew all about the food in two languages and made sure all of our special requests were understood and taken care of. It is worth repeating - THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT!!! The food was also very - and I mean very good. DELICIOUS!!! You start with small bites - move to appetizers and then your main course. I would recommend - Kiyao Toht as small bite Miang Pla and Neua Yang as your appetizers The main courses all looked amazing - I ordered the Tale Namman Hoi - and the server said the shrimps were whole but de-veined and they were delicious and perfectly cooked along with the mushrooms, scallops and calarmari. I also high recommend the eggroll for dessert All in all - this is a must go to place. You will get amazing service and super delicious foodMore
