Fodor's Expert Review Bird

$$ Red Light District Thai

The large menu of Thai standards—including some very good vegetarian options—doesn't hold many surprises but everything's fresh and tasty; diners often rate Bird as the best Thai in town, and there are lines most nights. The space is filled with chunky teak furnishings and paintings imported from Thailand, while the take-away snack bar across the street (Zeedijk 77) is more utilitarian. The best tables for savoring such dishes as coconut-chicken soup with lemongrass followed by fruity curry with mixed seafood are at the back of the restaurant overlooking the canal.
