FANTASTIC Thai food by real Thai chefs. I recommend the Red Curry Chicken and the Coconut Chicken Soup. The Pad Thai is also really good. There is the Thai Bird snack bar across the street from the same people, but it is more of a take out joint. Make reservations if they let you. My favorite restaurant in the Dam!!

Extensive menu, quick service, tasty food. Spicy, but not hot. If you are in a hurry or there before it opens, there is a similar take away across the street.

big plates for small money. everything we tried was good, a real authentic Thai food. good service and the food came quick. there is a line usually to get a table but it is worth the waiting. there is a snake bar of the same place right across the street if you don't want to wait for a table.

This place was recommended by a friend and after reading reviews, thought we should definitely give it a try. We knew it would be busy, but were willing to wait. On a Thursday night only a small line ahead of us. It smelled delicious and the atmosphere was great. While waiting you could order a beer/wine to pass the time.... More

If you know and like Thai food, than you are in for a treat. Don't mind the small appearance, don't mind the waiting line, it is worth it. This is Thai cuisine at it's best, with a very extensive menu and all reasonable priced. The location is wonderful in the Zeedijk, where you can find the best places to eat... More

Unlike many big cities in Europe, Amsterdam, in my opinion, isn't known for its food. But there is at least one notable exception in this great city and it's Bird Thai. Not only is it in a colorful location in Amsterdam's Chinatown (on the fringes of the fun and infamous Red Light district), but it is without a doubt some... More

The whole experience was amazing! I had been traveling in places without good Thai food, and it was such a relief to find Bird! It was recommended by a Canadian friend living in Amsterdam as her "absolute favourite restaurant ever". It's now mine! Don't be afraid by the line-ups. They move really quickly. Enjoy!

This restaurant is (currently) in the top 18% of the best rated restaurants in Amsterdam, so it must be pretty good. It sure is! The restaurant seems to be on a couple of levels with sections within each. They were busy when we arrived and we decided to try it. The menu looked good and extensive. The service was generally...
