A traveller institution, Royal Thai is crowded nightly with visitors from across the globe. The large open-plan dining room is an atmospheric place to enjoy thai food – the tandoori dishes are particularly good. Come early for dinner then settle in for the evening with a beer tower (three pints in a glass canister) or a bottle of French wine.

We were hoping to find amazing thai food, better than we have at home but unfortunately this was not it. Although, I would still recommend the thai food here if you are in Amsterdam, it's just average though. The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere and is decorated nicely. The staff aren't so good though, we ordered spring rolls and... More

I reviewed this restaurant for the first time last year on a visit and decided to eat there again this month. We arrived on a Friday night and it was busy! However, we were seated immediately, had great service, the food was better than before and had just an exceptional dinner. We decided to return 2 days later on Sunday... More

The spring rolls (number 1, Pho Pia) were okay, but not great. I ordered the Koong Phad Phed (number 52, King Prawn Red Curry). The online menu states 0/3 heat rating, though I could have sworn the in house menu rated it 3/3 for heat. The dish had 0 heat, didn't even tickle, and the curry severely lacked depth of... More

My wife is thai, and she was a head cook in an italian restaurant for quite a long time, so she knows how thai dishes should taste. There at the Royal Thai are some friendly Indiam waiters, and a Guy from Tibet serving the dishes. In the kitchen are thai ladies preparing the food. But, .... they dont know how... More

We made an impromptu decision to eat here. I was really hoping for some good Asian food, since I was thoroughly disappointed in Pho in Barcelona. I have this problem of getting my hope up too quickly, trying to work on that. We walked in and were immediately sat down. The place was full, so we thought it had to... More

I'm an Aussie living in London visiting Amsterdam for a short break. My partner and I throughly enjoyed the food. The Thai spring rolls are authentic and the beef green curry was very delicious. The staff are lovely. This place is a must visit.

This restaurant turns out Thai food to a very high standard and compares to the best I have sampled in Thailand or elsewhere in the world. Service was good and friendly. Prices reasonable give the quality on offer.
