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.

Love the GBB. Great thai food and a lovely interior, in fact I think it's been done up recently and looks even better. Really nice staff and a really chilled place.

I really like going to the GBB as the food it great, affordable and really tasty. The ambience is also good and it is always busy. The service however is always poor to so-so, not that the staff aren't great, they are, just seem to be very often/always under-staffed.
I really like the food though so will happily keep going.

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.

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!
