Had a great Thai meal, with very attentive waiters, in a lovely setting and ambiance. Not too big of a restaurant which adds to the atmosphere!

Thai restaurants can be found all over Amsterdam. Here is a selection of the best. Me Naam Naan Koningsstraat 29, 020 4233344 This restaurant, located in the Nieuwemarkt area, is popular amongst locals. The interior is decorated with many photos and objects and the waiters are dressed in traditional clothing. It's not all cosmetic though - the food is very popular, as is the service.

Amsterdam is full of wonderful Asian restaurants, and has some of the best Thai restaurants you'll find in all of Europe. But for what some consider the very best Thai food in town, you have to stop by Amsterdam's Me Naam Naan Thai Restaurant. Located in central Amsterdam at Koningsstraat, just off the Nieuwemarkt, Me Naam Naan Thai Restaurant has in the past been something of a well-kept secret. Frequented mostly by locals, not many tourists even knew it was there. But as Me Naam Naan's reputation for great food and service grows, this Amsterdam Thai restaurant is becoming more and more popular with visitors to Amsterdam. If you're looking for a fancy-looking place to have a romantic dinner, this isn't it. A small, cozy little restaurant, Me Naam Naan gets very crowded and loud during the busiest mealtimes, and it can be hard to get a table, much less a quiet one for two. If you do get a table, the first thing you'll notice is thedecoration— the walls are covered in photos and Thai statues and decorations, and even the waiters are traditionally "decorated;" all are wearing traditional Thai robes that don't seem to get in the way of providing the efficient, friendly service the restaurant is famous for.
But a visit to Me Naam Naan is, of course, about the food. While they serve terrific seafood dishes and wonderful whole fish, the true test of a quality Thai restaurant is always in how they prepare the simplest of Thai dishes, such as Pad Thai, Tom Yam Koong, or Green Curry. Here, these dishes are up to a standard you might find in Thailand— not a container of ketchup or bottled sauce in sight. For being one of the best Thai restaurants in all of Amsterdam, Me Naam Naan is relatively inexpensive. While you can order a la carte, they have many set menus for around €30 including drinks and dessert. It does get crowded, so be sure to call ahead to make a reservation, especially if you plan on going on a Friday or Saturday night. The restaurant is closed on Mondays.


There are so many Thai restaurants in Amsterdam, it's difficult to keep track of them all. But here's one you won't soon forget, Me Naam Naan, located just off the Nieuwemarkt. A friend recommended this place, and I'm glad she did. It seems the Dutch have been keeping this little gem a secret. We were very fortunate that we arrived earlier because all the other tables were already booked, and our whole meal was punctuated by new arrivals being told there were no tables available. Most of the customers, who were Dutch seemed to know this place fills up fast, and were consequently unperturbed.
I love Thai food having spent a few months there back in the 80s. And the more authentic the better. This means making your own curry pastes and using fresh ingredients, not dried. This place is not only authentic, but better than any I've found in Amsterdam. The true test of a good Thai restaurant is how well they excute the most common dishes, like Tom Yam Koong (Shrimp soup with lemongrass) Pad Thai (rice noodles) and Red Curry. Well this place does these standards so well, I could find no fault. In fact I was amazed to discover they could be done like this. I guess I'm jaded since so many Thai places adulterate these fine dishes with canned pastes or tomato ketchup. Not here. The food is refined, the service was good (suprise!) and the waiters were quite the exotic vision dressed up in traditional, yet elegant Thai fashions. And best of all the price was quite reasonable for such quality food and service.
