Great little place a few blocks from DH central station. Walk towardshet Plein (main square)and turn left on the corner where the road turns pedestrian (towards main square).
Very good food, well priced wine, friendly atmosphere and staff. I have eaten there several times while living in the Hague. Open 7 days a week, some out door tables during summer. Book ahead, it's always busy. Casual atmosphere. Not a fancy place if that is what you are after.

I was our favorite restaurant for years, especially for "special"occasions and romantic diner, but... there is nothing associated with "romantic dinner" any more. Visited mainly by expats last years, this restaurant became very popular for Dutch company events. Instead of listening fine music and enjoying calm atmosphere with candle lights, you are sitting in the middle of screaming crowd, do not hear yourself or your partner... This restaurant is extremely tiny, therefore you should accept a lot of unpleasant things like noise, people swinging their arms just in couple of inches from your face, stuffy heat. Not romantic at all. And not worth a visit regarding amount of money you spend their. But the food is still delicious and the staff is quite attentive.

Great for food, great service, cozy ambience. Its a small and cozy restaurant, advisable to make a reservation. On my husband's birthday, they even had a piece of surprise cake for him, such a sweet gesture. Our 3rd time visit in 2010, food is fab. Duck curry & their fried seabass with thai chilli sauce should not be missed!! other dishes, honestly, you want my honest opinion.................... Damn Good!! Any Msian or Sporean who misses original Thai Food, dont wander further, Phonsawan is the place. Tried a few others before discovering this place, was not as original as this.

There are not many Thai food places in The Hague, but this is one of the best addresses in my opinion. I've eaten there a few times, and also enjoyed the take away. Quality is very good and food delicious, and the people always friendly.

Following a day trip to Delft we took a stop in Den Haag on the way back. This restaurant is 10 minutes walk from the station (sligthly less may even be the case) and with limited seats. We booked in advance and had a nice meal: tasty dishes all the way along: starters, soup and main course. The like to serve bottled water, but you can ask for tap water if you prefer. Best Thai meal so far - better than the one in Amsterdam 2 weeks earlier.
