    Because of the good reviews, we picked this restaurant and were looking forward to our visit. Since we went to the theater in the afternoon, we arrived at the restaurant early and were the first customers. You would say that the staff would have all the opportunity to make our experience great. Instead of this, they made us feel like 'just another tourist' (although we are Dutch) bringing in some money; from beginning to end. It is never great to feel 'too much' in a restaurant, but most of the staff at Rakang seems to have mastered the skill of making you feel that way. Barely any eye contact, no smiles, tossing the menu on the table (also for desert without a sentence like "Would you like any desert?) and finally bringing us the bill without us asking for it, because we said no to the question if we wanted some coffee of tea. The whole experience has made us feel very unwelcome and unsatisfied. And the food? Was okay, but I know a few other Thai restaurants with way better food than this one in Amsterdam. All in all very unsatisfactory; we will not return here.

    Good friendly welcome, it was clear that many of the other diners had been there often before, so relaxed atmosphere. Food tasty and hot/fresh. Altogether, recommended.

    Really glad to have found this restaurant, the staff were amazing and you have to be really good to get this reaction from me. So friendly, so helpful and on top of that, even though we had stayed past the closing times, they were so polite in waiting for me and friends to finish our drinks. The restaurant was busy and the staff were still so pleasant and a smile on all their faces the whole time. The food was great, it had a lot of flavour and so fresh and the cocktails were incredible. I would be more than happy to dine there again. Thank you to the staff for the experience.

    Great little restaurant. Super cosy and the staff is very welcoming. The food is really good and I can for sure recommend it. Do make a reservation as it looked pretty packed. Another sign that it is a very nice place with really nice food. ;-) Once in a while I go there and I will for sure keep going back.

    A lovely surprise. Food, service, atmosphere… everything was just right. Their strong suit is undoubtedly the wide selection of elaborate and delicious dishes.
