De Kleine Ondeugd
The Dutch name of this restaurant (meaning ‘the little hellion’) wouldn’t suggest they serve great Thai food here. But they do. And they’ve been doing it for the past twenty years.

The menus are always a surprise, always made with fresh and seasonal ingredients, and you’ll always be able to choose a preparation of pad thai.
