Great food, great location, average staff.

Situated on a buzzing street with lots of options, this is a great choice - really tasty food, nice seating areas with views of the canal and streets for some people watching. Staff smiling presumably not included as standard....but they were efficient enough, and it was a really great meal... read more

The food at Bird Thai is amazing but I gave it 3 stars because of the lack of high quality service. I would highly recommend the pad Thai and mixed vegetables. We went twice and had to wait both times to get a table. There were even people sitting outside on the bench eating their food. The second time we... More

Seven of us went after work for a well-deserved meal. We were asked to wait for 15 mines. After 20 mines of wait in the queue, we enquired for the table and all we got was that they don’t know how long it would take for us to get our table and were asked to leave if we are not... More

This is a go-to place for me in Amsterdam if I want somewhere cheap and tasty. Good points are the value and the taste, many Thai places in Amsterdam do bland and non-spicy dishes that cater to Dutch tastes. This is much more authentic. Bad points are that you can't book easily, you just turn up and have to wait... More

This was a recommendation from our host in Amsterdam to Prove that is possible to have good food within the touristic zone... Didn't dissapointed! We tried the rice and fried noodles with Chicken, meat, prawns and calamari... Delicious! As well some Chicken wraped in bamboo leaves as appetizers. We went for lunch around 2 pm and there was plenty of... More

When food counts, service is always outstanding even in busiest days, I work as a chef and I know how stressful can be a restaurant that does so many covers,even snack bar in front food is just sooo tasty,a restaurant that should be an example for most.

This place has been a fixture in the Zeedjke for many years, an the queues are testament to it's the continuing quality. Can honestly recommend most of the menu but the pork in garlic hits it for me, as does the selection of starters and the deep fried fish. Service is brisk, polite, and efficient, (with little tolerance for drunks... More

The food was ok, my green curry was a bit too sweet though. I used to go to snackbar Bird (same owner) often when I still lived in NL, it is opposite the street and I think it was much tastier there, no nice places to sit there though. Overall a good restaurant, recommendable. Both restaurant and snackbar are worth... More

The food was good, vegetables fresh, and it´s a lot. The thai spring rolls for starters are very good. Be careful if you don´t like spicy food, because even the "mild curry" was very spicy for us. Service was friendly and fast, but we got charged 5 Euro too much. Might have been a mistake...
