Ok for thai or indian food and we do come back here often. However Thai green curries are some of the cheapest meals to make on the planet and really, chicken with noodles at 20 Euro is taking the mickey. You need to watch the price structuring or you will put people off going. In saying all that, the wife... More

I would have given it four stars were it not for the raging, raging MSG thirst that came upon us a few hours after we ate there. The food is tasty but expensive for what it is. I'll give it a miss next time because of the MSG. Shame, no need for that. It's hard enough to find a nice... More

Great fast friendly service, pricey but worth every cent. Superb flavours in a cosy environment. Recommend the tom yam soup.

Stopped in to Mahanakorn for dinner. This is a small subterranean place along the lower level of the canal. Outdoor seating is available if it's not raining (no umbrellas). I started with the Tom Kha Kai soup which was delicious and not too hot. For entree I had the Kai Khiaw Waan which is boneless chicken in spicy green curry... More

The Thai food is very good, from the appetisers to the main and the deserts. It is quite expensive, but a lot of that is covered by the great location, right on the Utrechtse canals.

Mahanakorn is located at canal level in the centre of the town, offering a pleasant terrace by the water, or indoor dining according to the weather. There is a good selection of dishes on the menu, from mild to very hot, including a good vegetarian range in addition to meat and fish. Something here for all tastes, and on summer... More

I ate here twice on a 7 day trip. It did not disappoint. I was craving very spicy food and they came through. My companions did not want spicy, and they got exactly the mild dishes they asked for. Service is exquisite, gorgeous ambiance indoor seating and for the canal view outdoors. I would recommend getting a couple of dishes... More

Mahanakorn offers authentic Thai in a beautiful setting on the Oudegracht. The food was excellent, not too sweet or mild as Dutch Thai tends to be and the rice was fluffy and freshly made. While we were there (during the week) it was not busy at but I can imagine that on weekends it gets quite packed. Service was OK,... More

this was a last minuet meal, we were lucky to get a table four eating two starters shared between 4 of us and 4 mains, the food is tasty and fresh, service excellent, beware 6;00 euros for a bottle of water, the meal came in at 120.00 euros so not a cheap option but worth it in my opinion

Very good and reliable thai experience. Variety and strong flavour (beware, spicy!). I recommend Red Curry chicken, delicious.
