“Top Class Thai Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Visited Billy Thai's on a Saturday night. Fortunately we had booked as it was very busy. We didn't fancy wandering aimlessly looking for a restaurant on a Saturday night when we arrived so booked by email before we visited Amsterdam, they responded quickly and table was ready and waiting when we arrived.

We are vegetarian and there was a very good vegetarian selection on the menu. The food was fantastic, the flavours were really vibrant, the green and red curries were hot but not ridiculously so, the Pad Thai (I stole some of my son's) was the best I have ever tasted. The restaurant is small and informal, the staff are friendly and attentive, the portions are generous and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended if you can get a table.

“Very nice Thai place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Airbnb host. It didn’t disappoint! The restaurant is small and quaint. Service was prompt and friendly. The dishes were very tasty and generous portions. Many locals actually frequent this place.

Great selection of Asian food. Visited with my wife, teenage daughter and teenage son. We very quickly attended to and looked after. Well worth a visit.

“Very nice Thai in central Amsterdam”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We like our Thai food really spicy (hot), but only rarely manage to get this the first time in a restaurant. (Cooks are always afraid you don't want to eat it in the end.) But not this time! We got what we wanted. Very nice Tai duck in brilliant red curry, spicy beef salad, and extra hot vegetables, not on the menu but made according to our wishes. Plus kind and polite service, an acceptable white wine, and quite reasonable prices. So if you are looking for a nice Thai restaurant with the authentic Thai feeling in Amsterdam, go for Billy's at the Prinsengracht. I am sure they will also cook well for those of you who don't like spicy food.
