The service was awful, my boyfriend and I were one of the first couples to get there and they took our order last. Then at the end when paying they tried to add a 10 euro tip (as if they thought they deserved it which in this case they didn't) food was alright. I will never come back to this... More

This was the first time I ate here. Me and my friend reserved a table a couple of hours in advanced. I like the location as it seems a typical Amsterdam style hip cafe. And then the Thai food is really authentic and good. Staff was friendly. Service allright. I would recommend as a nice local place

We were recommended this Thai Restaurant as we were staying in Amsterdam for a few days. We visited on a Tuesday night and it was very busy. It's a really cosy restaurant / bar and the atmosphere was great. Service was excellent and a good selection of drinks. We ordered for starters chicken / shrimp parcels and a beef dish... More

From the name of the place you would not immediately conclude going to a Thai restaurant. We do not need to waste too many words, but this place has earned its place. Superbly located in the western part of the center of the city. Easy to reach by public transport or even better: just take a bike like all the... More

In two weeks I had dinner here twice, our son ate here 4 times, and my wife and I had drinks here about 7 times. We found the service to be great, the atmosphere and staff friendly. The Thai menu is great and has vegan options. The bitterballen are delicious.

Super cool and hip bar\restaurant to catch up with friends and enjoy some evening sun. the food is very good for the price you pay. The staff was not really attentive but maybe because only because it was a bit full that day. The food and drinks are better then their coffee i have to admit. But all in all... More

Nice bar in great location. Good for drinks in the evening or lunch. They have Thai food and also sandwiches which are pretty simple but tasty enough. The Thai food is definitely not the best in Amsterdam but it's still ok. Nice place to meet for a drink.

I had a Thai specialty, it was good and spicy. A glass or red chilian wine that was OK. Friendly service, menu in English. A bit slow but I wasn't in a hurry so OK.
