I went here with my boyfriend in the winter. We were starving and it was cold outside so we were a bit annoyed. We found River Kwai and sat down as soon as we could. The place was quiet but there was a nice atmosphere....More

The most striking thing about this place is of course the location. It is located in one of these cellars along the canals beyond street level. The place may be bit difficult to access in the dark or by slippery weather. Inside the restaurant, the...More

This wharf cellar isn't the most intriguing of those along the Oudegracht but it is well laid out and clean. The food was tasty and portions were large. Service was above average and English menus were offered. I would eat here again with family and...More

The Thai food here is authentic and delicious. They are not extremely friendly, but you get used to it :-)

One of the best Thai food I have eaten. Though it is difficult to locate but if you do locate it, do try the food. The ambience is not that great but the taste compensates everything. The lemon soup here is one of best soups...More

With no doubt, this is the best Thai restaurant in Utrecht. Very tasty original Thai meals. The River Kwai restaurant also serves typical Thai beers like Singha beer and Chang beer. Especially the Thai curries are to recommend. The service is very friendly. We recommend...More

Authentic Thai food means authentic Thai spicy. This restaurant will rekindle memories of visiting Thailand when the staff asks if you want it "spicy or medium spicy". The food is delicious and unlike most Thai restaurants outside of Thailand they offer Chang beer as well...More

This was a visit to a thai recommended by happycow.org (veggie and vegan finder). It was a cold Tuesday night in winter to set the scene and had been raining. Finding the Thai was easy as there is a sign at street level, descending to...More

De ?correcte en vriendelijke? bediening van deze Thai neemt ?ruim de tijd om de kaart uit te leggen?. Dat is ook nodig, want de kaart biedt een ruime keuze aan gerechten waarmee ?alle smaakpapillen worden beroerd?. Waar de een spreekt over een ?gezellige inrichting? vinden anderen dat de zaak echt toe is aan een metamorfose. Dat dit niet afdoet aan het eten is duidelijk, want dit is ?gewoon een hele goeie Thai?.
