Bangkok Bistro has become our favorite go-to restaurant when we want Thai food (which is very often). Their cocktails and sangrias are delicious (try the mango sangria), the appetizers the best around, and the entrees always very tasty. Very reasonable prices, too.

We decided to give this restaurant a second try, because we were not overly impressed the first visit, but will not likely return based on this evenings experience. The wait staff is friendly and promptly seated us, but then we waited a half hour for our drink order because the waitress forgot or misplaced the order slip at the bar.... More

Save your money and dont go here. Seriusly I was very upset that I wasted almost 24$ on one plate of food that was mediocre to less than mediocre in quality and taste. They seem to act like they are a 5 star restaurant but they need to be closed. The food was not good. One of the waitresses was... More

The spring rolls for an appetizer were excellent and the duck dishes were great. The portions were good and the service was excellent. This is a place to go back to.

I've been here several times, food has always been good. I think the highlight though is their alcohol menu- they have like every martini combination in the world and they have different specials depending on the night. My friends and I go here for many birthdays and occasions.

I dined here this evening and was truly excited to try Thai cuisine with a friend. She ordered sweet and sour pork and I ordered chicken a la Bangkok, together we shared the only good dish of the evening, the appetizer, crab angels... which is a fancy name for plain old crab Rangoon that you will.find at any Chinese buffet....

On Monday nights, they offer a special: buy one entree off list and get a second for half price. We got green curry chicken and drunken noodles with vegetables. With two Singha beers, the total was $35, a little steep considering one entree was half price. As for the food itself, the green curry tasted watered down, the only way... More

This resto had been suggested by the nearby Econo Lodge who also provided a discount voucher. It is stylish and so is the food, crockery etc. We had a starter and an entrée, portions are the usual reasonably generous variety. Service was efficient and friendly. Backgound music is varied and at a reasonable level of sound.

I ordered the Chicken Pad Thai - a really basic Thai 101 dish. The good news is that it was a decent portion & served on an attractive triangle shaped plate. The bad news is that it really was very bland. Although this is not known as a spicy dish, it really lacked seasoning. When I asked the waiter whether... More

Ordered the chicken satay appetizer from the menu. Wasn't real hungry. Just wanted some protein, not a whole meal. The picture on the menu showed 5 sticks of chicken satay, with cuke cumber chutney $3.95. Sounds great tasty protein, a quick bite, just right. What showed up was 3 sticks of chicken and a small side of peanut sauce and... More
