“Cosy, unassuming and yummy”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Not an expert on Thai food at all but I loved the simple,spicey and fresh food served up here. We took the waitress' recommendations for fish cakes,salads, red and green curries, veg, rice etc and it was all very obviously freshly and carefully made, served that way too. The small 2 floor place was heaving with people all evening and apparently has been since 1991. The little hors d'oeuvres of lettuce leaf wrapped fragrant and spicy stuff were not only on the house but lovingly prepared and served directly into our mouths, but all in the best possible taste of course. Overall a great find and welcome break from disappointing rijstafel.

“Pleasant small place with some excellent courses”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

So do reserve in advance, because it can be crowded. Do not miss out on the Meang Kham. I'm not going to tell you what it is (check the menu on the websites). I've been here on several occasions as I work very close by, and I prefer to be here with a maximum of four people. With a larger group they try to streamline the ordering by trying to impose "suggestions", which is perhaps understandable but not my idea of dining out. It's also not cheap, so I think we can expect something.

“Not great.”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Decent Thai food, but lacking balance in flavor. Service was slightly awkward and off-putting. Overall just very average Thai.

“Just that little bit different”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This small restaurant does really good and different thai food. Try the filled black pepper leaves (they do these in a veggie version too), a complete explosion of flavours in a small leaf.
The service is good, the owner is passionate about his restaurant and that shines through. It's also good value for money for Amsterdam - just wish it was nearer!

“Excellent food, and very nice service”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I am very picky with my food. I like Little Thai Prince, and I thought you could not beat its Pad Thai... till I went to Krua Thai.

I love the food, nice service (not obsequious as somebody said) but very friendly. The chef stopped by to ask about service and food as well.

I've been pleasantly impressed in a town where food and service is mediocre at best: I am glad there are exceptions!

Highly recommended (~Eur20 pp w/out drinks).
