Went to this restaurant as a family. Good Thaï food, definitely worth a try. Large menu card. Service is ok. The restaurant is quite small and often very busy, so be sure to book your table in advance.

We have been to Thailand and loved the food. So we are always happy to find a restaurant which serves Thai food. And although the first impression from the street is perhaps a bit "strange" (you enter the restaurant after a second door) this is really a very good Thai restaurant where Thai food is served as if you were...

From the outside the restaurant looks a bit shabby so I was reluctant to have dinner there. However, inside it is quite cosy. The food was really good. In Belgium the thai food often contains to much sugar but not in this place. Don't be afraid to order a spicy dish, it is not that spicy (they have adapted to... More

Awesome Thai food, nice people, late service, even after 10 o'clock. Best Thai restaurant in Knokke, Brugge and beyond.

Very nice Thai cuisine in Knokke, good wine-list, friendly service, especially the owner Vincent guides you thru the menu in a very nice way. They could change the menu a bit more often, but a GREAT experience !

Excellent Thai Restaurant. I would recommand the " Orchidée" as starter. As main course I would recommand "canard au miel", or "Entrecôte tiède", or "Boeuf au basilic". But all zhe curry dishes are also excellent. The staff is really friendly and the whole staff is from Thailand, except the owner. Very cosy ambiance. Reservation recommanded. Possibility to reserve via Internet.

This is a very busy place, reservations are necessary. However, it did not meet our expectations. Although the food isn't bad, it's mediocre. Based on the Tripadvisor reviews, we expected more. We had, amongst other things, squid in soya sause. The sause was blend, didn't even taste like soya. Same for the duck with honey. No vegetables whatsoever, just plain... More

We went to this restaurant very late after a Cirque du Soleil show. We were very pleased to find the restaurant still open and we were even more pleased when we experienced attentive, impeccable service and delicious food in very generous portions! The bill for two with starters main dish and drinks was reasonable, less than 60 euros. I would... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner. The food was great; we had some very fresh and well prepared seafood. The multilingual staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The only flaw was that there were no fish in the aquarium. I highly recommend this place, make reservations! I would be happy to eat there again if I... More
