the next best thing

When the snackbar is full we go across the street to the restaurant. Love the fish cakes, nr 26 curry and of course mango and sticky rice. I must say I always order Som tam salade for a bit of spicey and sour.

Restaurant Bird is personally one of the best Thai restaurants in Amsterdam. Located at the Zeedijk in the red light district, the restaurant is almost hidden between all the Chinese restaurants (it is the Chinatown of Amsterdam). From the outside nothing special, but once inside you enter a cozy restaurant with several areas full with Thai'ish decoration (a big plus).... More

We ate here with friends during our weekend in Amsterdam. We were all hungry and it was about 10.30pm so we thought we would find a Thai and stumbled upon this place as we thought it looked okay from the outside. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table and were seated quickly. We ordered way too much... More

It was so tasty and waiters were so nice. Just an advice : most of the dishes are really bigs, so take one for two! (it cost approximately 16€, for a beef dish)

Sat down and ordered two dishes in this very busy establishment, both came out within 5mins and it was amazing food, I scoffed so much that the bike trip back to the hotel was dicy. Will definitely come back again! The four stars are because the waiters spent more time trying to pick up Thai guests than servicing the customers

This restaurant is to the north of the city, through the red light district. We were expecting long queues but were seated relatively quickly on a Friday evening as a party of 7. The menu is huge. My advice is to stick to the Thai dishes. I had Thai fish cakes as a starter, they were excellent but large and... More

I had some family over for a visit and we decided to go to Bird for some Thai food. We were quite lucky to have a table as soon as we entered. I ordered the red house wine while browsing through the menu. It was a Pinotage from Cape Zebra, a South African wine. Quite good! After browsing through the... More

This restaurant is rather good, but some foods is different than in Thailand. We ate Thai soup and green curry. Unfortunately same products not to exist - small aubergine, octopus, oysters and fresh galangal. Rise was only white (where is red rise). Impressions rather good not excellent. You will go to Thailand.

Went to this restaurant just over a week ago. The pleasure of eating here will be remembered by the unfriendly staff and the poor food. Got to confess my starter was excellent. After that it was downhill all the way. We each had a main course. One beef and 1 pork dish and some rice. In both cases the meat... More

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.
