“It's tasty, tasty, very very tasty”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We come back here every time we come to Amsterdam. The atmosphere is great and the food is excellent. Be aware that the portions are huge, so you might consider sharing. The garlic and pepper dish has buckets of garlic, so you better like it!

“The Best Thai in Amsterdam!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you like Thai, you will like Bird! They do not take reservations, but it is worth the wait.
Don't feel like waiting? Then you can go across the street to Bird Take-away and eat in a small cramped diner.
Enjoy!

“Yummy and great value”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were directed here by a dutch local when we requested a recommendation for something nice and not touristy. He said he ate here often and what a gem! We arrived early so were immediately seated, but by the time we left there was a queue outside the door, but it seemed to move quickly.
We had the thai green curry (which was quite spicy) and the chicken with vegetables. Both were delicious, came quickly and were good sized portions.
The price for our bill was around 30Euro for two mains a glass of wine and a beer. I would most certainly go back if I were in Amsterdam again.

“Probably one of the best thai Restaurants in Amsterdam, quick service, good food, not too pricey.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Been yesterday evening at the Bird restaurant, even if at least a couple of times a month I used to go to the Bird thai snack bar which is just in front, with less space, less fancy but also a bit cheaper, and offers exactly the same food.
Portions are pretty good, service is ok and quick, in conclusion probably one of the best thai restaurant in town.
Very often you will have to cue, but it goes fast, just be prepared for it.
