“comfy food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012

This small restaurant (/take away) is a precious resource when you are starving and just need comfy food ready in less then 10 minutes! the three sisters who work there are always chatting, laughing and cooking delicious thai specialities... the atmosphere is warm and relaxed and the service is excellent!
...don’t miss the green curry!

“Good Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

We liked this little place, it's not touristy and I think we were the only non-Dutch people there in the little restaurant. It gets quite busy and cramped, but for this quality of food and price you can't complain.

As someone who has eaten a lot of Thai food in Thailand my only complaint about the food would be that it's been tamed to suit Dutch tastes, so it lacks any real punch.

Still, tastes great and was service with a smile.

“Wait outside until you get a table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2012

The restaurant does not do reservations, no alcohol, no glasses for drinks but the food compesates for all. One of the best Thai in town, and with nice prices.

“Best Thai Restaurant in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2012

O-cha is definitely the best Thai cuisine in Amsterdam (also see the so-called "Iens guide". It is a small restaurant slightly at the border of the Red Light area, situated in the upcoming and trendy Lastage-area, north of Nieuwmarkt plein.
The two original ladies who always serve the best freshly cooked dishes with a smile need some helping hands since culinary reporter "Johannes van Dam" gave them a top rating; but if the restaurant is too crowded, you can always go in and ask for take-away (they don't deliver@home).
