I visit this restaurant since long. Not the place for a fancy dinner but always tasteful. The choice in oriental food is broad and price/quality is perfect. Interior could use a fresh-up but the terrace has improved a lot. I hope they can keep up with the increased competition in the region. Wouldn’t want to miss the UFO’s flying by.

From entering the restaurant from the cosy little garden to the colourful but cosy interior, we knew we were onto a good thing. The staff were welcoming and friendly and quickly took our order. I had a Thai dish which was really tasty while my wife settled for the marinaded salmon (also very nice) and the kids opted for the... More

When we go somewhere, we always check TripAdvisor tp check the place out and in this case De vliegende Schotel was voted the third best place in the area, so it seemed ok. I don't want to spend to much time on explaining so of we go, bullet point style: Pro's: Cosy, friendly staff Con's: Expensive, small portions, mediocre food... More

Had a fantastic dinner here last night with some work colleagues. Staff were friendly and welcoming as soon as we walked through the door. The set menu had plenty of choices (the actual presentation of the menu, a few sheets of A4 paper stapled together didn't look great) and plenty of specials to choose from as well. For a restaurant,... More

Stayed over for work in a nice B&B in Kasterlee and wanted to eat something different, looked up a Turkish restaurant but that was closed. By accident I ran into the Vliegende Schotel which is at the other side of the street. It turned out to be the best that could have happened to me that night. Friendly staff, a... More

We ate in the garden in temperatures of nearly 30C. Garden was cool and pleasant and the restaurant was full. The food was a fusion of Thai/Japanese with European. We selected from the daily specials menu and were not disappointed. Beautiful sauces of Thai flavours to complement the dishes (marinated raw salmon followed by whole dorada). It's not fine dining,... More

We went there for about 5 or 6 times and at ^revious occasions it was perfect. But last week the food was not as usual. I assume the kitchen staff changed in the meantime as the food was really not worth the money we paid for it.

This time, we were seated at a table in the garden since we're having a hot week here in Belgium. We went both for dishes from the menu and specials of the chef. My wife had the salad of the house as a starter (with squid), I had the vitello tonnato. Both were delicious. As main course, we chose the... More

The chef of this restaurant used to travel a lot and picked up different ideas and ingredients throughout his trips. Always take a look at the suggestions since this is a new discovery anytime. Love to come here in this colourfull cuisine...
