You cannot leave Amsterdam without eating here, if you do, you'll have missed out. It was a reccommendation from a waiter at another establishemnt who suggested this place, and boy were we glad that he did. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food on offer here is brilliant. Tasty, fresh, great portion size and great service.

Really very solid food. Less sugar than Americanized Thai but it really held its own. We got the pad thai (good) the drunken noodles (excellent) and a noodle soup (excellent). The entry is a bit disorganized, if you want "take away" skip the line (ignore the angry glares from those waiting) and find the first waiter you can track down.... More

First of all there is a snackbar with the same name just opposite, I guess they do belong together, but I don't know. That said, I did the lunch menu and chose the restaurant, because I needed a place to sit down and rest for a bit. Service was really quick and the food was nice, but for me it... More

We were expecting a queue when we arrived after reading some other reviews. Luckily there was only one other couple in front of us and the place was packed. However, it was a Monday night and the area did seem quiet; most restaurants we passed were a third to half full. We were shown to the area upstairs, but downstairs... More

We went there on Saturday the 28th of Janaury with two couples. Service was good, food was great. We had 4 soups and shared some main courses since the portions are big. So far so good. Finished the meal, started talking and were contemplating about coffee and or dessert. Waiter came by and asked us if we wanted anything. We... More

I decided to go to this place on a Friday around 6/6.30 P.M. with 3 friends, there was already a queue, but we didn't have to wait longer than 15/20 minutes. I did feel like waiters were rushing for us to decide what we wanted. Meals come with awesome sticky rice, also chicken soup with coconut milk was memorable. Highly... More

We love Thai food and had the pleasure of eating it in Thailand so we expect the same flavours when going out for dinner. Fortunately we found it at Bird and honestly we always eat here when in Amsterdam. Lunch or dinner here means we enjoy good food and leave with a full stomach.

Top of the list for dinner if your visiting Amsterdam. You might need to join a long que if your visiting over the weekend but its worth the wait. We paid €60 for dinner with wine so its priced very well, service and food quality is excellent

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.
