“The real (Thai) deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

This small place is a hidden gem. With around 16 seats serving 2 tables and a bar, it is very small. The menu is extensive, and when you place your order, the (genuine Thai) cook starts cooking from scratch! So be prepared to spend one hour or so sipping your drink, or Thai beer while waiting your dish(es). But I promise you, you are in for a treat! This is definitely the best Thai food I ever had. Frequented by the locals who know this place, but hardly found by the tourist, this is one place in the canal area of Amsterdam that is worth a visit and having a meal. Make sure to tell the cook how spicy you like your food, and she cooks to order. A real gem!
