This was our first time in Amsterdam so we were happy to follow a friends suggestion to eat at Billy Thai's. There were 8 of us and we each ordered different dishes and ate "family style". We had great service and the dishes kept coming. I really don't know what exactly I ate but it all tasted good.

We came here to grab a Tom Yum on our way home. They prepared it for take-away, and quite frankly, their portions are great! The soup was exactly what I needed - filled with herbs and spices, extremely fragrant and tasty. Will be back again for more.

A small place with a little terras. We had a only main dishes. To be honest I forgot their names. The menu consists of more or less what you get in the average Thai restaurant. I had a dish with fresh ginger, beef and mushrooms, my partner King prawns with a sauce. Noodles on the side. All together it was... More

I'm not an expert on Thai food so I hesitate to make pronouncements but I was expecting more depth of spiciness and flavour in the main dishes - rather than a predominance of chilli. The selection of starters was tasty though, the house white very drinkable and the service prompt and friendly.

Visited Billy Thai's on a Saturday night. Fortunately we had booked as it was very busy. We didn't fancy wandering aimlessly looking for a restaurant on a Saturday night when we arrived so booked by email before we visited Amsterdam, they responded quickly and table was ready and waiting when we arrived. We are vegetarian and there was a very... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Airbnb host. It didn’t disappoint! The restaurant is small and quaint. Service was prompt and friendly. The dishes were very tasty and generous portions. Many locals actually frequent this place.

Great selection of Asian food. Visited with my wife, teenage daughter and teenage son. We very quickly attended to and looked after. Well worth a visit.

We like our Thai food really spicy (hot), but only rarely manage to get this the first time in a restaurant. (Cooks are always afraid you don't want to eat it in the end.) But not this time! We got what we wanted. Very nice Tai duck in brilliant red curry, spicy beef salad, and extra hot vegetables, not on... More

Authentic Thai cuisine cherished by the locals. I was clearly the only tourist there and was lucky to get a table on a Saturday night with no reservation. Very lucky indeed as both the service and the food were as good as in Thailand. Small venue, nice atmosphere for couples or small parties of 2-4. Not cheap but very good... More
