    Great time, food is amazingly good staff is very nice. Only minus is that we had to wait for service quite long. And after we got served drinks did take 15 minutes after order but besides that highly recommendable.

    The staff was really slow to serve. We waited 15 minutes before being asked if we wanted a drink, onother 5 before we received the menus and another 10 at least before they took our order. We had to wave at them to get their attention to get a second drink even though our glasses were sitting empty on the table for quite a while. When we did order the beer it seemed to be forgotten and we had to order it a second time. It was not too busy and they were not understaffed. They were just really inefficient and badly trained staff. The food was excellent and well priced.

    The food was really good. This is the second time dining at your place. However, it took some time to be seated although we had reservations. I had to walk to the bar to have someone assist me and to let them know we had arrived. Once we received our food, it was challenging to have the waiter's attention to request for additional drinks..etc. The main opportunity to make a good customer experience is to be more attentive to your customer is you are looking to have returning customers.

    This is the golden brown I know and love. I was very disappointed the last time I visited, by the inefficiency of the staff. Yesterday evening they were all brilliant, very attentive & we had a great meal, great service . My friends from London were very impressed , & it’s obvious that the golden brown remains very popular .

    Very good food for a good price. The service was good, but it could have been a bit more attentive. Further a great night.

    We got our table immediately, service was good and fast, It was quite noisy so we needed to speak loudly, dishes were quite small but correct for the price. All in all we had a good time, the food was delicious and arrive pretty quick. Will come back again. Tip: Ask to sit on the ground floor.

    Super nice food and friendly and helpful waitress. We really enjoyed the stay especially that thai people make the food in the kitchen so it is real thai food

    Personally really liked the food there. However even though they have been very flexible with serving custom baby food to my 20 month old daughter (just next time I will specify not to put any peanuts on her rice), the service is super slow. But I have to say that is a quite generic problem too many restaurants in Amsterdam. And yet I will come back because I had a "gezellig" time there!

    We were seated upstairs so that makes service a challenge because you aren't right there in front of the staff, but they did a decent job. Food was good the dish I got was meant to be spicy but I didn't really find it that spicy. I also had opted for the noodles as an accompaniment and what I was expecting and what I got were two different things. The noodles were effectively bami noodles (Indonesian) I was expected something more like glass noodles or more traditional thai noodles. So next time I would get a spicier dish and rice not noodles.

    Great value in a bar setting and authentic Thai taste. Always a good mid week options, on the weekend it tends to get a bit too buys. Booking recommended.

    the vegetarian snack and the fish with red curry ;) it was really deliciuos. The service was a bit slow but it was not bothering since we had a nice time in the break between the snack and the main course

    Delicious food, great atmosphere, only complaint was that the service was a bit slow towards the end but definitely wouldn't stop me from returning!
