My fist VERY big plus for this restaurant is that it is not to crowded. I know other Thai restaurants in Antwerp where there is 10cm between your table and your neighbors. I find that very annoying, so I was very pleased that this was not the case. Good variety of dishes, tasty fresh food and very friendly waiters.

We had a very good diner (professional). Service is excellent and the food is really great. I think we don't get Thai food that often so I need to mention when it is really nice. It's a very nice place to go, not that expensive (16-20€ for a main course), with good atmosphere. Enjoy!

This restaurant has a very nice layout, eastern style. You'll get a very nice service. Hey waiters are very polite towards the clients. And you can see and taste that they only use fresh products. The food is very tasty.

This restaurant has been around for more than 20 years. Cuisine is good, not exceptional. It's not very large, most tables serve up to 4 persons, so not suited for large groups. Thai restaurants in Antwerp come and go, but this one has been around the longest.

We visited this restaurant on Sunday night and it was suprisingly very busy. May be that was the reason why service was incredibly slow. They were very nice and smiling but we gave up on ordering more after our main dish just because it took so looong. Food itself was very good. May be it was just an exception so... More

Food is really ok but not extraordinary. the team (family) is super friendly and helpful. Restaurant is nicely settled (quiet terrace), parking is super easy, not far from nice bar form a little 'after'. My advice: don't hesitate because you will have a nice evening with good dinner in a friendly environment. Last but not least. Not pricey.

Really enjoyed the red curry and the other people I was with also enjoyed their meals as well. My host uses this regularly and really recommends it

I have been to the River Kwai several times a year for many years with friends, business relations and my own family. I find the food very good. The dishes are presented in a very creative way. Freshly cooked and good variety on the menu. It is not cheap but I find that you get good value for money. The... More
