I have been here several times over the course of my visits and I guess I never wrote a review. I do like the original location because it had all the charm of being in Bangkok without the long plane ride...LOL! But I like this location because it's easy to get to and there's parking. One of my fellow teachers... More

I was surprised at this restaurant...almost gave me a cafeteria style environment. Food and service are not bad but nothing extraordinary...nothing really stands out.

If you want fast Thai food, this is the place. I've been to 2 locations, Ewa Beach and Nimitz and food is pretty consistent. I love the fried noodles, medium. Service is hood and fast. Restaurants are clean.

I know I've had bad Thai food before but I can't remember anything as bad as this. Instead of a menu they should just advertise garlic and cilantro with anything. It was impossible to find any natural flavors. The pad thai was like eating garlic noodles. The satay was like eating garlic chicken. The mango salad should be called cilantro... More

BYOB. Great food and good prices! Parking can get tricky especially at lunch with the other business going on. Ordered the pad Thai (tofu) along with other dishes. Very tasty and healthy, especially with the stir fry.

We went to Bangkok Chef after several of my friends highly recommended their food, and they were right. Everything that we ordered tasted wonderful and it came out fresh, attractively presented, temperature hot, and to the spice level that we ordered. The Pork Panang Curry, a first for us, left a lasting impression. The Pad Ki Mao is another winner.... More

Dined here for lunch for the first time. I ordered my favorite dish, Pad Kee Mow or Drunken Noodle with pork (Thai hot). It was perfectly cooked with a good amount of pork and veggies and the seasoning was soon on. My colleague ordered the Yellow Chicken Curry which looked delicious and apparently was as he ate it all. The... More

If one was fortunate to ever find a spot to park and despite the awful din when anyone else speaks in this vaulted room, Bangkok chef used to be the go to place for delicious Thai. They are slipping. Our sullen server took our orders and offered only a brief reluctant smile. The food was alright. It has slipped. One... More

This casual Thai restaurant has consistent good Thai cuisine. Take out is always prepared in the time promised and eat in service is usually very good. The one thing they need to do is update their web info as they close between lunch and dinner much of the time and the listing says they are there throughout the day. Great... More
