Good typical Thai food in a centrally located restaurant at the water borderline of one of the Utrecht city canals. Very good service and affordable prices for generous portions. Restaurant is not super cosy but quite original due to the location.

When entering the restaurant the first thing you see are iconic thai figures. The ambience just made the restaurant complete with its beautiful wood lined ceiling. The food was also amazing. We had the Phuket Menu which wasn't the cheapest thing but was definitly worth the price. We had an aray of thai delicacies including an amazing tom yum and... More

This place is a little gem! It's atmospheric and well kept! The food was fantastic. Very tasty and good portions. The staff were a little of the game! It wasn't busy so maybe they found it hard to get going. I arrived and stood for a little time before being greeted. They servers were just not as impressive at the... More

Ok for thai or indian food and we do come back here often. However Thai green curries are some of the cheapest meals to make on the planet and really, chicken with noodles at 20 Euro is taking the mickey. You need to watch the price structuring or you will put people off going. In saying all that, the wife... More

I would have given it four stars were it not for the raging, raging MSG thirst that came upon us a few hours after we ate there. The food is tasty but expensive for what it is. I'll give it a miss next time because of the MSG. Shame, no need for that. It's hard enough to find a nice... More

Stopped in to Mahanakorn for dinner. This is a small subterranean place along the lower level of the canal. Outdoor seating is available if it's not raining (no umbrellas). I started with the Tom Kha Kai soup which was delicious and not too hot. For entree I had the Kai Khiaw Waan which is boneless chicken in spicy green curry... More

The Thai food is very good, from the appetisers to the main and the deserts. It is quite expensive, but a lot of that is covered by the great location, right on the Utrechtse canals.

Mahanakorn is located at canal level in the centre of the town, offering a pleasant terrace by the water, or indoor dining according to the weather. There is a good selection of dishes on the menu, from mild to very hot, including a good vegetarian range in addition to meat and fish. Something here for all tastes, and on summer... More

I ate here twice on a 7 day trip. It did not disappoint. I was craving very spicy food and they came through. My companions did not want spicy, and they got exactly the mild dishes they asked for. Service is exquisite, gorgeous ambiance indoor seating and for the canal view outdoors. I would recommend getting a couple of dishes... More
