Yam Thai serves excellent food similar to what we had eaten during holidays last August in Thailand, So great food, no doubt about that, prices are reasonable, and the setting close to the Museum and the "kaaien" is perfect as well. After dinner, you have plenty of choices for a round of drinks or coffee.

Service however was very poor. 2 persons were serving, an asian guy which was friendly, we were served by a young lady, who was very unfriendly and did not speak one word to much.
Can you imagine that she served the food without saying one word? From then onwards we start pay attention on number of words she spoke, we ordered a new dish, one word "ok", than when we asked for the check, payed by credit card, she brought the machine to enter our pin, all without one single word !!
Note the 2 actors owning the place were not there, no problem at all for this, we were not expecting that they would be there.

Yam Thai is in a nice neighbourhood, and especially during summer offers a more than decent outside dining option.
Staff is friendly, prices are ok, food quality is high.
Unfortunately, my first experience was a failure due to the overall service.

- received the wrong appetizer
- main course was served together with starter
- also main course was wrong
- main course (a hot dish) was served cold

And...the bill was not correct (too high).

But they were professional, acknowledged the mistakes and took one dish of the bill.

Will try them once again, hoping they just had an off day.

Make sure to make a reservation.

I was sceptic to go here at first.
But I read about their concept in a newspaper and wanted to try out.

Now myself and my husband are big fans of Thai cuisine, we also cook thai food at home sometimes and have visited Thailand a couple of times and we enjoyed the streetfood a lot.
In Belgium, we have a hard time finding good thai restaurants; often they are too fancy.

So on a rare sunny midday we ended up at Yam Thai and we ordered thai fishcackes as starter (fingerfood), and spicy minced meat and mussaman curry.
We also received small appetisers - salad of cucumber and tomatoe but really nice flavour.
Honestly - it was also the best mussaman curry I ever ate outside of Thailand.

We really liked the food and plan to come back here.
We like the more relaxed atmosphere, and it's not too far from city center.
Well done !!

the owners of this restaurant are 2 actors from Belgium and they welcome us warmly when we entered the restaurant. we were with seven people and choose different plates and every plate was very tasty. the average price for a plate is 14 euro and drinks here are really cheap. the noodles with the shrimps are fantastic so the chicken with green and red curry ..don't choose the 3 peppers plate except if you want to burn ;-) .. try this restaurant it is very good !!!! and I received a kiss from Nathalie Meskens yeahhh
