This is good quality Thai food. Tasty, and the place looks great. Location is on Zeedijk - the "Chinatown" street. There's actually 2 Bird restaurants on this street - right across from each other. One is the full restaurant - nice place. The other is a "snack cafe" with limited, but still good food. This place is super busy at... More

There was a queue when we arrived which we took as a good sign, we weren't wrong. We soon got a table ( about 15 min), service was good and there was a good choice on the menu. The food didn't disappoint and both staff and other customers were friendly.

The food at the Bird is fantastic. They were very busy the evening we went but the service was great and the food came out in good time. There was a constant queue of people waiting to eat but we did not feel hurried.

The starters were amazing, especially the prawn and chicken... More

Very good Thai food. Visited based on TripAdvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. My friend and I each ordered massaman curry and shared chicken pad Thai. I also had a Thai iced tea. The service was friendly and fast even though the restaurant was busy. I would recommend and will definitely return when I am in Amsterdam again!

Firstly be prepared to queue. This in itself is usually a good indication that the restaurant is going to be good. We arrived at approximately 7:30 and were queued just outside the door. We queued for around 30 minutes. Once at the front we were given the option to share a table with another couple or continue waiting. We decided... More

Discovered the Bird on our first evening in the city. Queue at the door... always a good sign! Had to wait 10 minutes for a table and we're then well looked after and not rushed. Authentic Thai cuisine. Very tasty. Big portions. Good value. Already looking forward to going back!

Overall food was good, however the restaurant seemed very unsanitary (employees were not wearing hair nets or gloves while prepping the food, employees were eating where the food was being served, and that the same food elevator bringing dirty dishes to the kitchen was the same elevator that our fresh food was in.) Also, the employees didn't seem to care... 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.
