Great Thai food in Amsterdam

Met up with an old friend who had been traveling for two months in Amsterdam. She had a craving for Thai food so I tried to make a reservation at the Bird only to be told we would have to wait but was assured that it would be a short wait. Indeed he was right. Although the restaurant was busy... read more

While visiting Amsterdam, I met up with an old friend from Germany. We were getting hungry after a beer and dodging the rain and he found this restaurant on yelp. After a short walk we arrived and were a bit put off by the line formed outside. Thankfully we waited two extra seconds when a waiter walked out and asked... More

My husband and I ate here with friends. We were originally trying to find an Indonesian restaurant, but I'm really glad we found this one instead. I got the tofu and vegetables with red curry sauce. The tofu was really well done. I don't think I've ever had tofu that had been so well pressed. The cashews were a surprise,... More

I am a huge fan of Thai food and I can honestly say, this was some of the best I've had! They spiced each of our dishes exactly as we requested, they both understood and communicated perfectly, the place was clean and everything we ate was heaven!

I read about this place on Trip Advisor and instantly wanted to visit! We waited about 40 minutes in a queue to get in but it was totally worth it, it's a fairly large restaurant so they get you in as quick as thy can. The food was absolutely delicious and having just returned from Thailand it was just like... More

Chicken/pork with red curry and coconut milk were awesome. Sweetness blended some spices. The general consensus of us is that the squid with garlic and pepper is way below our expectation. It was quite salty and the squids were rubbish. But in general, we had a great meal at this restaurant,

Extensive menu, quick, attentive service and delicious food in generous portions makes Bird a "must do" when I return to Amsterdam. Plus, I was very impressed with their CLEAN rest rooms!

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.
