Bird snack was reasonably priced as reflected in the mixed seafood tom yong soup I ordered that featured artificial surimi instead of real crabmeat. The entrees were generous portions. Expect very crowded surroundings and sharing a table with other guests.

I've been here SO many times...and I'll get back so many more !!! No thrills here, you might have to wait to be seated, there is no toilet even...just amazing food served at the speed of light. The soups, green papaya salad, curries, spare ribs...I have tried their entire menu pretty much, and it's very much flawless, maybe the pad... More

We were told about this restaurant on our walking tour and also were recommended it by our hostel. The food was amazing and the service was good, maybe a little expensive for some (€16 for a main with rice) but was so delicious we took our leftovers home!

Great atmosphere and good quality authentic thai food. I especially recommend the soups! The staff was very friendly despite us being an unorderly small group.

My first visit to Bird Thai, having heard so much about it. I arrived very early 1700 or so on a Wednesday evening as I am a solo traveler and find earlier better from both my perspective and the restaurant's - no waiting for me and I'm out of their hair just as they get busy. I was the only... More

The only thing that we didn´t like that much were the springrolls, then the rest was very very good. We took the menu 1 and it was delicious. specially the Pad Prik Keng Luom Mid.

Once again, we had to wait in a long line to be seated -- but once again, the line moved surprisingly quickly. And once seated, no one hurries you out, although the food does come quite quickly. The menu is huge, and everything we ordered tasted wonderful. The service is excellent, and the ambiance is very pleasant -- nice decor... More

In what I believe was the Chinatown of Amsterdam, considering the amount of Asian restaurants in the same area, and near the Red Light District, in was easy to find. As we walked in we can see a display of certificates, including tripadvisor, so despite the 10 minute wait we were told, we decide to take a chance. It was... More

I eat here very regularly, actually every week, in my opinion, it is the best Thai restaurant in Amsterdam and almost always has a queue out the door. The service is good, the prices are reasonable and the food is always great. There is also a snack bar across the street which is a little cheaper and better for a... More
