“Because we are new, we keep our prices low to get as many customers as possible,” says the restaurant’s owner Suphawadee Paddenburg Neekrathok. She reveals that the prices will have to go up in the near future, but for now people can taste tremendously flavoursome Thai meals for a great price. Mali Thai Kitchen, open from Tuesday
till Sunday, serves quintessential Thai food prepared by Thai chefs. “But we know how to adjust it to the Dutch palate,” says Paddenburg Neekrathok. “Both our chefs have worked at Thai restaurants in the Netherlands before, so they are very aware that some customers prefer their food a bit milder.”
