Sombat Thai Cuisine is one of the most relax places to have Thai dinner in Antwerp. The concept is to make you feel like you're having dinner at home or at a friends place. The menu is set, that makes it easy for people who are not familiar with Thai food to enjoy the most tastefull delights Thai food can offer. Highly recommended! Book in advance.

Was looking for a Thai food place and found this one on TripAdvisor. Read the remarks of placing reservations weeks in advance but decided to take my chances and went there. Easy to reach from Antwerp Central station by tram/underground and a short 5 minute walk. Certainly helped having read about the mysterious door or else I would never ever have found it. The address on TripAdvisor is wrong by the way. It's one house more to the left. It's really an ordinary house from the outside with no clue whatsoever that there's a restaurant inside. Only a little white taped off doorbell showing Sombat. Again no mention of the word restaurant. Buzz the bell and the owner will come to open the door for you. It's really a cozy small living room with 5 tables inside. The atmosphere is super special. The owners are incredibly friendly. As others said there's no menu, only a set 5 course of the day including welcome cocktail. Note that after the desert you'll be asked for coffee or tea as if it's included in the package. It's not. You pay 3 euro extra for a large pot of tea with some lovely sweet cookies. All tables are served a new course at pretty much the same time. Allow for at least three hours to get through the full meal. I'm a big eater but this food really got me full. The quality of the food was good but not super and certainly not reaching authentic Thai food as one can experience in Thailand. The whole unique experience certainly makes it worth it though. I paid 66 euros for just myself for the menu plus two Thai beers and the pot of tea. To me that's really steep. Bit too much to be honest. There's free good WiFi. Ask the owner for the password. The garden looks lovely. Prefect restaurant for a special occasion or romantic date. Especially during the weekends be sure to book way in advance. During the week you may get lucky by just showing up at the door. Cash payments are accepted including even American Express cards. If you're in for something unique and different, got some money to spend and are not looking for the best ever Thai food taste, this is definitely your place.

Sombat Thai is a hidden jewel in Antwerp. Mr. Sombat radiates true Thai hospitality and makes you feel welcome in the tastefully decorated setting. Authentic, pure and true to its identity, this is the place to be for superb Thai dining. Double thumbs up !

Our very friendly host welcomed us at the door (from the outside you cannot recognize the place as a restaurant).
Started with 2 appetizers and house cocktail, followed by a set 5 course meal (no menu) full of flavors. A real treat!
Definately recommend it. Reserve in advance (some weeks before...).
The menu changes every 2-3 weeks they told us.
