This fantastic Asian restaurant can be found at the end of the Zeedijk street. Here you can eat Japanese, Chinese and Thai food. Both the quality of the food and the service of the staff are very good. Moreover, the interior is very beautiful and quite luxurious.
“Sushi was more than amazing! Cant wait to go again! One of the best sushi shops in Amsterdam 👍”

A-fusion is perfect for couples who want a romantic evening, but also ideal for business outings or a dinner with friends. This Asian restaurant is also very active on Instagram where it shares beautiful photos of their specialties.
Okay this isn’t the best Thai restaurant in Amsterdam, but it’s definitely a great choice! Although the service here is somewhat mediocre, the food here is quite tasteful. It has a simplistic Thai decor which isn’t romantic perse but you get the feeling of being in Thailand for a moment. Especially in high season it can be quite busy here due to its popularity, so you have to wait in line at the entrance.
“They have an amazing price quality menu if you go before 4. Good food in general. Sometimes when its full waiters can be slightly rude.”

This Asian restaurant has two levels and 110 seats divided over 3 separate areas. Bird restaurant was founded in 1998 and partly due to its long existence it has thousands of positive reviews.
The food here is just wow! Wanna try something different than Chinese, Japanese or Thai? Then go eat at this Malaysian restaurant. Despite the fact that the food here is very good, we think there is room for improvement. We find the seats quite uncomfortable here.
“I’ve been coming here a few years now, and all times food has been very good as well as service. They also cater to food allergies/intolerances.”
