Food was fresh but was clearly made for foreigners. A red curry is more or less a coconut cream sauce. In other words far away from the real thing. Tom Yam Khung similar, fresh with good ingredients but not authentic at all. So mostly too bland taste for Thai cuisine. Service was friendly and quick. Main issue is that the restaurant or at least the lower part is really cramped (too many tables in such a small place). Still the restaurant was full, so most people seem to like it this way.

Besides the Yaki in the centre of Brussels this Thai restaurant is outstanding in terms of taste, quality and service.
Very nice garden - wonder how they keep the wooden floor from rotting and the bamboo from dying in the Belgian climate...
The menu is not too big, which is very often a sign of excellent quality and you will definitively find something for your palate.

I've been to Noi three times on business travel and it just keeps getting better. Noi offers very tasty Thai food with nice ambiance and fantastic service! The people here are so friendly and accomodating...they remember your face from the last visit making you feel very special indeed. They recommend reservations but have always been able to fit us in without one. I can't recommend this place highly enough!! Dishes to try: thai basil beef, the appetizer assortment and tiramusa. It's a little confusing to get to but completely worth it!

I have been to this restaurant more times than I can remember. The food is consistently marvelous. It is delicate and beautifully presented. One major plus is that they have a 'specials' menu that changes once a month. This always features more unusual dishes, the sort of things you would find on holiday in Thailand but would never find once home. I have eaten some dreadful Thai food in Brussels, but never at Noi. The décor is lovely; cosy soft lighting with Thai carvings and things around the room. The staff are efficient and courteous. My only regret is that it has increased in price since the early days. Cost for 2 people with starters, mains, 1 bottle of house wine and coffee upwards of €80.
