This restaurant has a very large selection of dishes. Fortunately, the staff were willing to take the time to explain things and offer some excellent suggestions. The meal was well-prepared and tasted very good. Not the best Thai food I've ever had, but well above average.

We were here for lunch , and while the food was reasonably good Thai food , the chairs and all the seating were extremely extremely uncomfortable. I certainly would not have wanted to stay there for a long, casual dinner.

Not great, good basic Thai food. Tasty dishes, but left the restaurant still hungry. Had to go out for ice cream afterwood. Not worth the visit.

We didn't have to wait to be seated, the restaurant offers many tables in two floors in three areas. Service was good and fast, they stopped us from ordering too much, their portions are really big enough for 2 persons...whatever we ordered I could feel the fresh vegetables and good quality chicken, but taste was adapted to Europeans, not so...

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

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.
