I had a prawn dish which cost 22 euros but contained only 5 prawns. The restaurant was very busy and it was not relaxing with constant comings and goings.
The food tasted good but the meal was too expensive for a basic restaurant experience.

My friend and I went to this restaurant based on previous TripAdvisor reviews - it totally met the hype! It wasn't cheap but the service was great and the food was delicious. Definitely worthwhile if you're in the Jordaan area and love Thai food!

We wanted something a little different than Dutch food and the hotel concierge told us to go here and we werent disappointed. Very fresh thai food. In the states thai food can be hit or miss. This place was a little cramped inside but we sat outside. Great people watching. The food was tailored towards your spicy preference. Lots of locals getting take out. If you want thai- this is the place to go!

We had a recommendation for this restaurant from the owners of our B&B . So glad we took the trouble to walk the 15 minutes into the Jordaan area to find it.
We hadn't booked and were lucky to get the last table. It's only a small place but didn't feel cramped.
The menu was extensive , we chose the Five Buddies starter which we shared, and we both had a chicken pad king which was delicious and came with boiled rice. We each had a glass of wine and a large bottle of water . The bill came to 59 euro which was well worth it.. The service was attentive and prompt but not intrusive.
The atmosphere was vibrant but relaxed as well. We would definitely return next time we are in Amsterdam.

Rakang may be a bit sqeezy and it does get hot inside the restaurant but these are a small price to pay for outstanding Thai food. This was by far the best meal I ate in Amsterdam in the week I was there, and all for a most reasonable price.
