After many years of success operating the chaotic and tiny Thai snack bar across the street, Bird's proprietors opened this expansive 100-seat restaurant.

Hi, Had dinner here and the area is very much "red light - chinatown district" of Amsterdam. Food was very good, tom ka kai and a mixed platter of fish and meat in a red curry sauce, mildly spicy but spicy enough for me. Only set back was the service, too quick. Americans will probably appreciate this quick service more than europeans who like to linger and have a long dinner experience. Overall, good atmosphere, nice furniture. Other point though,
it said AC outside but inside it was even hotter than outside ! Must have been broken. Will come back though ( in winter !)and hope service is a bit more laid back....
