Been here many times on business travel to Amsterdam. Really great food and generous portions. Unfortunately the restaurant doesn't accept reservation, but you can go there and wait in que, they are anyway very quick in serving.

FABULOUS Thai food located just on the other side of the Red Light District. Their flavors are very similar to the Thai food I know and love in Texas. The restaurant is a bit cramped, but totally worth it :)

Very busy Thai restaurant. We enjoyed our food immensely. The restaurant is very lively, and full. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Only small issues, I don't like my tofu chewy, and as elsewhere in Amsterdam, they do not seem to provide tap water.

This was a great find and if you like Thai food this is one of the best in the area. However, it is recommended to book as on the Sunday night we first went there, they were cuing out the door.

Cant go to Amsterdam and not go to the Bird. Last Sunday up to the standard.Service was spot on and food was great but be very aware of the "condiment" trays total chilli overload and watery eyes all round. Cant wait for the next visit.

We took a three course meal served on one plate. Cheap in price (€ 18,-) and good in taste. The restaurant was busy but not full and there were no people standing in line to find a table. Time enough you would-be think for Some customer friendly service. The staff however chucked the drinks on the table without any comment... More

Excellent Thai food on the heart of the red light district. This place was close to our hotel. The portions are generous so we shared the pad Thai and it was excellent. We had the spare ribs and spring rolls as an appetizer. The spare ribs were excellent however the spring rolls were empty! I still give this place 5... More

We always eat here every time we are in Amsterdam and yet again the place never let us down. Arrived around 6.30 and we got a table for 2. Just after that a large queue had started forming. I recommend the king prawn red thai curry. Service was good and this will be our first port of call next time... More

I ordered a duck in a coconut curry sauce with lychees and pineapple. That was super amazing. It was mix of flavours. I got a big bowl of rice too! Restaurant overall is a bit pricey, around 20-25€ per meal, but portions are big so its worthed it. When my boyfriend and I were entering the restaurant the waiter asked... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
