“Nice and cheap Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2012

Very nice Thai food, one of the cheapest Thai restaurants in Amsterdam. Curry's and chicken dishes about 11 euros, fish a little more. Also take away. Friendly staff. Try the chicken satay, the soups, red curry, chicken in oystersauce (with a lot of vegetables, yummie!) and fish in 3-flavoured- sauce. I live in the neighbourhood and pass by once a week.

“Thai Gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

We stayed in Amsterdam for 5 nights and after finding this restaurant we returned for 2 further nights of Thai food heaven. Staff were friendly and helpful, delivery of food was prompt and the food was outstanding. They accommodated our "not so spicy/extra spicy" requests with no problem at all. The chicken sate, red chicken curry and chicken massaman curry were divine!

This is a small restaurant, tucked away off the main shopping street, the decor is simple, prices are modest considering it's a very central location. Well worth a visit and will definitely return!

“Best Thai meal I've had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

Paknam Pho doesn't look much at first, tucked away down a narrow side street and the decor isn't up to much but what a hidden little gem it is! A simple menu with the most flavoursome Thai food I've ever tasted. The extremely helpful staff are more than willing to accommodate your every need at a really affordable price. We went back the next night it was so good. The spicy chicken and mushroom soup is a must and they even made me an Irish coffee for desert. Next time we're in Amsterdam, we will definately be visiting Paknam Pho. (also, the toilets are immaculate).

“Good food, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

A very unassuming place but well worth a visit if you fancy some Thai food. I had a peanut and potato curry dish which was excellent. As good as an Thai I have had any where else. We were there for an early dinner about 4pm and they were very accommodating. Dishes include rice in the price.
