Listed by some of the guides as one of the best Thai food restaurants in Amsterdam we felt is was disappointing in terms of food quality and ambience. It was very crowded on the evening we were there and I felt that it was - even allowing for Amsterdam food prices - way too expensive for what you get.

We had Christmas Eve dinner at Bird Thai Restaurant with friends from Amsterdam. The food was nothing short of amazing! Excellent! Great drinks, stellar service, very clean and comfortable. I would go back in a second.

Do not miss this hidden gem! Seriously, the best Thai place I've been to. The coconut chicken soup was simply off the hook and the app sampler plate was a perfect little treat to share for two. Order the fresh coconut for a special treat.

Ate here with my brother on our 2nd night in Amsterdam. Food was really good and service was quick. Nice amount of spice to the green curry I had.

Stomach flu after dinner, multiple times. But the taste is very good. Just I don't know what's happening in that invisible kitchen but it must be extremely dirty.

My husband and I ate at Bird Thai, which is in the China Town area of the Red Light District. I got the shrimp with coconut milk and red curry, my husband got another shrimp dish and opted for the fried rice. It was the best Thai food we have ever had. Service was great, loved the way the restaurant... More

This is just a great Thai restaurant, and one that I always look forward to visiting on my first night in Amsterdam when I visit. If you get there after 6.30pm then be prepared to queue for a little while, but be patient - it is worth it.

This restaurant is a bit hidden in the red light district, but it has great service and great Thai food. Seating is indoors but it is a nice and cozy environment. Good for groups or couples, not for kids because it is in the red light district. The plates are big and they have wonderful Tum Ka Koeng (Coconut soup... 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.
