Was recommended this resteraunt by shop owner in Harrogate who spoke highly of it. The food is very authentic and the atmosphere was great. Service was very attentive.Shared a table over looking the canal and really enjoyed. Well worth a visit, but be prepared to queue if you visit at peak time.

My friend and I joined the queue after seeing award certificates on display. We enjoyed our 'meal for two' but even though we are good eaters there was at least a full portion left over. Other diners had similar experiences and the staff are happy to bring over take-away cartons and a bag. They fill the trays for you. An... More

Had an excellent meal in this restaurant. The food was delicious but to be honest if we had known the portions were so large we would have had one between the two of us . The rice was enough for a family of 6. !

We couldn’t reserve a table here so we went early. It was fortunate that we did as there were only a couple of tables free and by the time we finished there, there was a queue stretching out into the street, waiting for tables. The place clearly has a reputation. I regularly eat Thai in my home town and I... More

My friend and I spent some time looking at TripAdvisor restaurant reviews and decided that Bird was worth a visit. We were staying close-by so it sounded like a good option. On the first night, we ordered Spring Rolls, Chicken Satay and Red Thai Curry .. well.. the two of us were very hungry and and they did not disappoint.... More

Good but what's their secret? Located in a street with more than 20 Asian restaurants, people queuing up before the door the whole evening. So we expected something special or outstanding. We found a good but more or less average Thai restaurant...with a small but pricey menu. The food was good and the waiters very speedy...a win win situation to... More

Amsterdam is a melting pot of cultures and Bird Thai Restaurant in connection with the cafe/takeaway across the street are a true example of other cultures blending into the canvas that is Amsterdam. The food here is the best Thai food I've had, even in Thailand. The price is also great if you're on a budget and looking for good... More

As far as thai goes, this place takes the pad see ew. Recommended by a friend, we decided to go after a long day of backpacking. Completely worth it. Huge portions and so delicious.

We arrived here on a Saturday night, however you couldnt book. We had to wait ten minutes for a table which was fine, shame they didnt have a seating area though so you could get a drink etc. The food was excellent except for the sweet options, i.e. chicken and mango, or sweet and sour prawns. These were so sweet... More

A really nice place to get awesome Thai food. I highly recommend the Pad Thai but the choice is pretty big. Then be patient as it is really a busy place.
