O-Cha is a very small restaurant on the edge of the red-light district which does eat-in or take-away. Pretty good prices and pretty good food. If you eat in, it's very cosy! Cash only, no alcohol, closed on Mondays.

3 of us had a good meal here (2 Pad Thai,1 Green Curry and we shared a green papaya salad). Big portions, very tasty and fast service. It's a shame they don't sell alcohol as a small beer is always appreciated with a Thai meal.

We ate at this place years ago and enjoyed it so we decided to return. We walked in right as the place opened (4PM). They don't serve alcohol which was a disappointment (I like to get a Singha beer with my Thai food). We got...More

Great food, generous portions and better thai food that we ever ate here for such a decent price. We live in Holland but found this place only recently. This from now on will be on list of eateries that we regularly want to go to.

This is one of the greatest places to eat in the Dam, friendly service and very cosy atmosphere. Chicken Satay Skewers is a must!

I'm. not a huge fan of Thai food, but I gave it a try as we were invited by friends. Getting a table is not easy (we were lucky and got one right away!) as the place is small but the food and the two...More

Only a small eatery in Chinatown with an open kitchen where you can see the cooks made the delicious dishes. It's always so busy busy but for good food we wait: vegetables, green curry, and shrimps. A perfect combination with tea.

Use this place a lot, usually for take away. Very friendly people, friendly prices and fast service. It is always crowded and you sit close to eachother, to eat in better suited for couples and friends.

I got a recommendation for this place from our host. It is a small and crowded (which is a good sign) place. The food is amazing, the flavours reminded me of Thailand. Three thai women run this place,they cook at your sight and serve immediately....More

This place is hidden on a smaller side street close by all the busyness of the Nieuwmarkt. It took some while to have our dishes to arrive, but food was very good. Will come again

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
