“Very good dinner, service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2014

Had dinner here with 4 coworkers. Nice size restaurant for Amsterdam standards. Good location in the heart of downtown. Our group ordered a variety of soups, dishes and all were thoroughly enjoyed. Service was timely and good. Prices were very reasonable.

Only dissappointment was the Singha beer. It was from bottle, but very flat. I don't think it is supposed to be like that. Not a big deal.

“Excellent Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

We had a team dinner last month at the Chao Phraya Thai restaurant at Nieuwmarkt and we were pretty much impressed by the taste and quality of the food and also the prompt service. The could easily restaurant accomodate a large group. We ordered a lot of dishes as we had a varied group of people. The dishes were awesome and well prepared and the portions were large. I had some vegetarian dishes and simply loved all of them. Definitely remommended!!!

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

This is quite a big restaurant by Amsterdam standards, we ate here through the day and there was hardly anybody in. Don't let that put you off, the food is fantastic. Really nice Thai noodles & rice, freshly cooked to perfection.

My other half isn't a Thai food fan but having persuaded her that it's my turn to choose, she'll let me choose again now. Result!!

“Good Clean Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We ate here twice on our recent visit to Amsterdam. We have eaten here before, but we could not remember where it was!!! It is situated in Niewmarkt, which is around the corner from the Red Light District, and is great for people watching, and not necessarily the ones in the windows!! The food is good, authentic and clean. It is served with a smile, and whilst service can be slow when busy - who cares - have a drink and chill, you are here to enjoy yourself, and if you are on business then you are at the wrong end of town. The chicken satay starter is great, and enough for two to share, we had green and red chicken curries, and sweet and sour (not all at the same meal). We love Amsterdam, and when we go back, which we will soon, this will be top of our list for supper.

“Very good Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

Not too busy at the time, could have been faster service. We had the spring rolls, fish cakes, chicken on a skewer with peanut sauce and a chicken with cashew dish
All tasted good, not as hot (spicy) as most Thai restaurants, but worth the euro for value.
