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 a shrimp Pad Thai - 15 euros. Was very oily, and tasted more like some... 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 ladies are the best. I don't like curry, so I had the Fried rice with... 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. I will be back again.

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

Run by three Thai women, this tiny restaurant is a hidden gem in Amsterdam. Getting a table is a bit hit and miss. I've been here three times and have always had to wait for a table outside (the restaurant is too small to have a waiting area). The staff are friendly (but don't speak much english), and the service... More

We love Thai food and seek a meal on each one of our overseas trips,?apart from eating occasionally at a Thai restaurant when at home. This one tastes more Chinese instead. Apart from the good-friendly service, a reasonably large choice and good portions, we did not experience the taste nor aroma of either Galangal or Lemon Grass in any of... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
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 hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
