“Good food - well priced for Amsterdam”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Thai Phutakun offers good Thai food - make sure you book because they do get very busy and were turning people away when we were there. I'd give the ambience maybe a 7 out of 10. It's very small and dark and you are sat very close to other people but the food does make up for this. It is well priced compared to other restaurants in Amsterdam. I liked it but not sure it was special enough for our city break away.

“No need to go to Thailand for Thai food, it's right here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

We visit Thailand quite often, as you will see from my previous reviews, and I like the Thai food right there, where it came from - or when I cook it in my own kitchen, with a little global cuisine twist. We came here because I had a major craving for Tom Yum, and it was exactly what I wanted. The restaurant is quite cosy and looks out on a busy pedestrian street. The staff is super friendly and the food that we tried was really tasty. I particularly liked the Tom Yum, the mixed seafood in sweet and spicy sauce and their side of fried noodles with veggies. Even remembering it already makes me want to go back! They even have Thai beer- Singha and Chang! What more could you ask for?

“Fresh and Delicious Pad Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I picked up pad thai from Thai Phutakun while in Amsterdam, and was not one bit disappointed. The dish was flavourful and extremely delicious: I LOVED it! I can't speak to the ambiance of eating in the restaurant, but I loved how the kitchen was just behind the front counter and you could see and smell all that was being cooked. I would definitely return for another meal if I'm ever in Amsterdam again!

“Quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

If you saw this place from the outside you might just walk by and it is unusual but great. The food was copious and freshly made and flavoursome,Erics our waiter was helpful with suggestions from the menu and although the wine list was limited to white rose or red it went well with the food! We had a lovely evening.
