I decided to visit Rakang after my usual favourite Thai restaurant was closed due to a private party. I originally booked a table, but turned up early. They were very accommodating. Their soft drink menu was the usual fair - and one of the few...More

Concierge recommended it and they were spot on. I was eating solo so just had the chicken satay and larb, but both were top-notch. Small, loud, but the outdoor eating is fairly well sized. I'd go back in a second.

Small and noisy. Just the way it's supposed to be! The food was quite simply fantastic. Recommended by a local and it was patronized by both residents and tourists. Great vibe. Would eat there again but flying home tomorrow...

Really cozy place and very kind waiters. The food was really good but could have been better honestly. Another thing that was great was the take out service, one of the best restaurants in the area.

I've eaten plenty of Thai food, from London to Chang Mai, and this is some of the best. Portions are a little larger than usual, we would have been fine without starters. Service is friendly and the flavours are strong and delicious. Not cheap, probably...More

Recommended to us by our boat driver what a great place we sat outside on a warm night but also had Wall heaters in case it got chilly. Service was prompt and polite all in all a great night at a great price.

It was very delicious authentic thai food! We loved it! Service was great too! Chicken satay was excellent and fried rice was yummy!

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
