    Very tasty Thai food! Loved their fish cakes, green chicken curry, red shrimp curry, massaman curry and beef with oyster sauce! Small place which is always crowded. Don’t serve alcohol and cash only.

    Best Thai place in Amsterdam. The Papaya Salad is fabulous and hot. The curries have nice deep flavours and the Pad Thai is chewy. Love this place!

    Everything we ate was delicious (loved the chef’s special), but the service was absolutely the friendliest I’ve ever encountered in Amsterdam. Can’t wait to go back.

    Very delicious and authentic Thai good, in a not pretentious bar, for a very fair price. Go there if looking for good food, rather than for bangs and whistles of more fancy alternatives around.

    Best and cheapest Thai in this area. Come early as it tends to get crowded. No PIN and no alcohol here.

    Best thai in Amsterdam in my opinion. Fish cakes and massaman curry are heavenly, squid is amazing too. The women who work the kitchen and take your orders give this place extra charm.

    Close to authentic Thai food. The beef in re sauce with bamboo shoots is great, the ambience is cozy and cramped, but the food quality more than makes up for it.

    Good thai food, not one of the best, but good enough. Not very friendly staff, looked like they're in a rush. Eat & leave. Quite a small place so do understand

    It's a lovely place with great food, but the tap water really should be free.

    Amazing Thai food in a tiny room. No alcohol, though, just to make sure you don't stay too long.

    Take the ocha mix for starters and share. Massaman Beef Curry and Pad Thai are excellent!

    Food is fine, but not extraordinary. Tom yam is pretty bad... But this seems to be common for all Thai restaurants in Amsterdam. Service is great, by the way.

    I prefer Bird. Ocha is cheaper but the food is not that good and portions are smaller than Bird's. No alcohol.
