Very nice decor inside the restaurant, however there aren't many other positives about this place. The prices for the food are very high compared to other Thai restaurants. Waited a long time for the main course to arrive. Once it arrived they brought the wrong dish (beef green curry instead of chicken). They told me the chef hasn't read the... More

Food, service excellent a little pricy but you are in the red light district well recommended. The menu is a bit limited but what I had was really good, well cooked and plenty of it, if you like hot and spicy try the soups .

Very good food, service, portions and value. We had soup, main dishes and drinks for only €40. There was a huge bouquet of beautiful fresh flowers next to our table and the service was very good.

Amazing food. We had patties (fish cakes) and deelish ribs followed by the freshest red curry and beef dishes. Beautiful food. Very slow service. If you want to linger over drinks and eat then this is the place. No rush! Sit back and enjoy!

Lovely thai in the middle of tourist area red light district. fresh ingredients, open kitchen so you can see the chef making your mail with love and attention. If you walk inside... don't forget to look on your left to see pictures all the famous people who dined here as well like Brad Pitt :)

We were looking for a restaurant that didn't exist any more and ended up here because there was a table free....and it was really good. It was late so we went straight for the main course and dishes varied from tofu through to chicken and sea-food....we were all impressed...a great find

Very nice meal, had the Thai red curry which tasted very good. Very nice ambience, deco plus possible to see the actual chef cooking. Only thing to note what the time it took to be Served but we arrived at rush hour. Would definitely recommend.

This is my first time meeting a scary waiter in thai resto, they are ussually very polite. But, here. The waiter was rude and unpolite. The food was ok! Just the service and the staff a bit scary.

Visited the restaurant fairly late on a Saturday evening, the staff were very accommodating and got us a table, the restaurant is decorated beautifully with lots of fresh flowers which was a nice touch! Food was delish! Would definitely recommend the beef panang, it was like a fillet steak in red panang sauce, gorgeous!

Late lunch after a tour to the country. We both had Pad Thai, lovely, fresh, medium spicy. We washed down with a chardy+a Thai beer. Service friendly,prompt, food certainly hit the spot. On a canal in the red light district.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
