Service was fast and friendly, the place was not very crowded, the prices were good and we got a good portions. The plates were not overly oily and had good thai flavor. I would definintely come back next time i'm in the area.

I have been eating at Bankok West for years. I was there today; my son and his girlfriend treated me! The lunch buffet is great. For starters you have white or brown rice, coconut soup, spring rolls, tempura vegetables, green salad with tofu and fresh fruit. The peanut sauce is beyond excellent. Next, is another section of hot entrees such... More

The spring rolls are wonderful, and very filling. I had the vegetarian Pad Thai which was good. Lots of vegetables and tofu. The garlic spareribs were okay, not much taste to them. Good size portions. The wait staff was excellent. They were very helpful, pleasant. Every time my water glass was getting low, they were there asking if I wanted... More

Reasonably priced good quality food and good service. This is our favorite Thai restaurant in this area. It's within walking distance or at least biking distance from New Brighton State Beach. They brought out fresh veggie tempura every few minutes. Very good coconut soup and spring rolls.

Surprising gem on the coast near Cabrillo Community College. Reasonably priced and great quality. This was our first time and we tried it after looking at Trip Advisor rating and comments. We will definitely return.

You know how it is when you just have to have Thai food? We go to Bangkok West in Aptos. They make several wonderful kinds of duck, very crispy and tasty, their curries are excellent (I like the green curry with prawns), and their noodles are great. I also love their lunchtime buffet -- fresh spring rolls, coconut soup, fruit,... More

Deciding not to order off of the menu, I opted for the lunch buffet. The food was good and the selections were kept replenished, although there was not a large selection of entrees, there was a couple chicken dishes, tofu dish and a couple different styles of noodles. One plus was the availability of brown rice at no additional charge.... More
