Can't fault the quality and authenticity of the Thai food, service was very friendly and the prices are OK. The only downside is that the restaurant is quite small and when it gets busy it's a little too cosy and you can hear other customer conversations. Other than that - highly recommend!!!

This tiny neighborhood restaurant was a great find! The staff were friendly and spoke English and the food plentiful, authentic and excellent. The selection of beer could be better but the food more than made up for that oversight. The restaurant is small so it maybe a good idea to make a reservation, but has a quirky fun vibe and... More

Go to Rakang every time I'm in Amsterdam and have never once been disappointed. Always really welcoming and the food is just gorgeous. Quirky touches in the restaurant make it fun and service always attentive without being rushed. Fave restaurant in the world.

We got wind of this amazing place in a local magazine while visiting Amsterdam. Loving Thai cuisine and being on a romantic weekend, we wanted to sample the best. The atmosphere in the restaurant was instantly friendly and welcoming, staff attended every need and the food was delicious! I would recommend this place to all Asian food lovers.

We found this restaurant when walking past and decided to try and get a table, it looked very busy from outside which is always a good sign. Just as we arrived the staff were very helpful and managed to get us a table within minutes of another couple leaving. We had the shared starter with a little bit of everything.... More

The food is superb and the restaurant not surprisingly full. BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL. We were greeted by a rather surly individual who totally lacked charm or courtesy. Having said that, the rest of the staff were utterly lovely. Full of smiles. We were even allowed to take away a doggy bag. The Pad Thai was fantastic and the portions generous.... More

We went here on the recommendation of our concierge. It was an easy 15 minute walk from our hotel. We would never have found this place had they not recommended it. The service was great and everyone was friendly and attentive. The food was prepared fresh and was quite delicious. I noticed a few other people mentioned (on TA) that... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
