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.

I ate at both the restaurant and the cafe. The cafe was a lil squeezy, for sure the seats and space is too small for the local dutch, everyone had to walk sideways :P But the food at the cafe was more authentic, it had the streetfood taste to it. Cost wise, it's the same in the cafe or restaurant... More

I went there for a dinner on my last day on Amsterdam! I was by myself and I've heard about bird of my friends and as I love thai food, I had a great experience. I could't eat there since was really late and they were closing the service, however I took it to the hostel and I loved it!... More

Pros: 1. Best restaurant in the ultra touristy Zijdijk 2. Authentic Thai food, it's really great 3. Not expensive Cons: 1. They rudely refuse to serve tap water - this is acceptable behaviour in my book

As a huge fan of Thai food in the Uk, I was dubious about Bird, but had heard a lot of excellent reviews from friends and the snack bar opposite was featured in the Easyjet magazine on our flight. We visited Bird twice in three days, it was that tasty!! The staff are really friendly, and the portions are HUGE!... More

I can't believe the restaurant is the same as the last review!?! We went on 28th July and the food was delicious. So tasty and loads of it. We were slightly concerned that they would charge loads for the heaps of rice, but no, it was included in the price. We had ribs and thai spring rolls for starters, followed... More

I just ate here and every part of my experience was GREAT! the food was over the top and not over salted like other thai restaurants. The service was great and very respectful. It was very romantic but family friendly. If you are looking for a great dinning experience and a great cost Go there! I can't wait to go... More

Arranging a table for 7 was as if we’d asked them for their first born child. The food was horrendous. The waiter was entertaining. But only because he was a complete c**t. When we questioned the bill, he made a huge fuss, waving his hands about, serving us all kinds of attitude. Also €17 for a green curry? ¾ of... More
