I know it is a bit late but still want to leave a review for this restaurant! We walked such a long way to the restaurant without booking, but the owner tried his best to get us fed! Ha! As we had a 3-courses lunch at 2pm that day, we weren't able to order too much for dinner but everything... More

Eaten here a few times, and I guess that the excellent standard is maintained because I have just called (16:00) to book a table for two tonight at 18:00hrs and been told they are fully booked!! Lesson learned, don't leave it til the last minute to make a reservation.

Thanks to Patrick and Ooy the owners of this excellent restaurant for making our meal so memorable.. We are a mixed Dutch and Thai couple and live in Thailand, so we can really judge the food in Chang Thong or also called Golden Elephant in English. The food was fresh, the beef in oyster sauce so soft and tasty and... More

We managed to get the last table, thankfully outside as it was an unpleasantly hot evening. The owner was very welcoming and even accommodated my son who does not eat spicy foods with some excellent, plain, prawns. The rest of us enjoyed a variety of well cooked Thai meals. The location is just outside the centre but worth the walk.... More

I saw good reviews on TripAdvisor so we decided to reach the place to have dinner. Unfortunately it was completely full but the owner proposed us a place outside (close to the street) where to eat and luckily we accepted. We took a mix of starters (really good with the sauce) and then 3 different dishes (must try the chicken... More

We did not book ahead for this restaurant so we were crossing fingers and toes when we rocked up for food, sadly it was fully booked as we had feared! However it was a beautiful sunny day and as we dallied in the doorway, the owner - a very enthusive, friendly and welcoming man came out to greet us and... More

Thai in Bruges! We had such a mixed experience, but given the other great places to eat, probably will not go back. The good: The owner was delightful, and in addition, made sure we got a table even though we had not made a reservation. The food was good, but not nearly the best Thai food we have had (the...

Situated in a small street just off 't Zand, this restaurant is one of the best thai in Belgium. The decoration is correct, very cosy and stylish. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The food is as original as it should be and the menu offers other dishes than the ons one usually finds in other restaurants. We recommend... More

Was a lovely meal, and managed to get the last table outside as we had not booked. The staff were very helpful and made sure the curries had the right spice for that individual. The curry was the best we've had, served promptly and piping hot. Would well recommend, although definitely book to guarantee your space as the food won't... More

You might find it hard to get a table without a booking because the locals love this place! The food is superb. The host is very personable and his wife is the amazing cook. They travel back to Thailand 3-4 times a year and close the restaurant while they are away so if they are open give them a try... More
