Zeedijk 72-74 & 77 (620 14 42).
Pretty authentic Thai food, to be had in either the snack bar at no 72 or at a more leisurely pace in the restaurant across the street. Atmosphere to match: Thai music, pictures of the King on the walls and orchids on the tables. Very popular so both places are usually packed.
Open daily snackbar 2pm-10pm, restaurant 5pm-11pm.

Nassaukade 366 (489 70 39).
Traditional Indonesian cuisine in a not so traditional setting; blue and red walls, luxurious chairs and modern lighting. The excellent cooking matches Blue Pepper's up market interior. Instead of the traditional comprehensive 'rijsttafel' dish three menus are on offer, which allow guests to sample the different flavors of Indonesian cooking.
Open daily 6pm-10pm (closed Sun).

Traditional Indonesian fare in large quantities at low prices served well into the nightly hours. Expect to wait, and expect to rub elbows with clubbers and other night owls.

Reguliersdwarsstraat 30 (626 84 00).
Upmarket Oriental restaurant with an interior not unlike an Asiatic musical; colors abound and the ceiling is adorned with upturned Chinese umbrellas. Wonderful canalhouse garden for summer dining. Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai dishes all beautifully presented, in large portions.
Open 5.30pm-11pm, closed Tue.

Zeedijk 122 (625 64 51).
Authentic Chinese cuisine in this slightly scruffy restaurant on the Zeedijk. What it lacks in looks it makes up for in the quality of the food, and Hoi Tin has over 200 dishes on the menu. Very popular with locals as well as Chinese. Cheap.
Open daily noon-midnight.

Memories of India
Reguliersdwarsstraat 88 (623 57 10).
Upscale Indian restaurant cloned from its London counterpart and definitely one of the best in town. Slightly cheesy interior, but authentic food with friendly service. Moderate prices.
Open daily 5pm-11.30pm.

Zeedijk 111-113 (624 34 70).
Traditional Chinese eatery with formica tables, fluorescent lighting and Peking ducks in the window. Right in the middle of the Nieuwmarkt area - Amsterdam's 'Chinatown' - Nam Kee used to cater to Chinese only, but today this is hip cuisine so you'll find a lot of locals as well. Excellent traditional Chinese cooking, try the Tja Sieuw or Nam Kee's specialty, the Peking Duck.
Open daily noon-midnight.
