Very cosy and nice place to escape to from the busy streets of Amsterdam. The food was great, the portions were huge, i recommend to order different portions and to share them, so u can taste more because one portion is too much for 1 person. Prices are reasonable.

Thank Teddy and Johnn... H

A 15 minute queue was ahead of us, but that seemed quite short after reading other reviews. The wait was well worth it, the meal was fabulous and the service was great. If you're after a wonderful Thai meal head for the Bird, it's well worth it.

Some friends brought me here and boy am I happy they did. It was a bit of a wait but well worth it. Not a very large restaurant inside either. There was 5 of us there and we all ordered a dish to share. Everything was delicious but the papaya salad was by far my favourite, nice and spicy! We... More

I am a sucker for Thai food and it was up to my expectations. The food was tasty and full of flavors. We had the fish curry which had only 2 small pieces of fish, which was quiet disapointing. The waiteress brought us the wrong dishes which can happen but was very unpleasant when we pointed out the mistake. I... More

We arrived at 7.30 to find a long international queue, finally after half an hour, we were shown to our table for two. Very charming waiting staff, very good service. We ordered our meal and it was excellent - wine by the glass, very reasonable and a two gigantic course meal cost us 67 euros. When we had finished and... More

If you're a sucker for thai food then this is where you find nirvana. Don't let the long queues dissuade you, the food is totally worth the wait.

Saw this restaurant mentioned in the Amsterdam guide book, and then looked it up on Trip Advisor. Called in at 6pm on Friday evening, and though it was fairly busy, there was no issue getting a table. We both opted for a set meal, and though a little surprised everything came at once, we certainly couldn't fault the food, the... More

Waited for 40 minutes with 3 sets of people (groups with 2 and 3 persons) behind me got seated. The first group right behind me got a seat 20 min after my waiting . The reason I got is there is no small table and I need to wait for FIVE min. And then 15 min again, he asked another... More

We grabbed there a quick lunch on our way to Patta store. You'll notice pretty fast that this place is a good one, because of the queue in front of it. Anyway, the food is amazing my friend told me that their dishes are quite similar to the ones he had on his trip to Thailand. For me, a person... 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.
