Probably the best authentic Thai in Canterbury!

We had the set menu which was excellent so cannot understand some of the other comments on TripAdvisor. Guess as in any busy restaurant you will not get the service or quality... read more

As we have a 19 month old toddler, it's tricky to go out to eat these days. This is our favourite restaurant but I wasn't aware they did a take away service! We have just eaten our very first Bangkok House takeaway and it was incredible. Our new favourite take away!

The Bangkok is a favourite of ours, always clean and tidy, the food is freshly prepared and comes piping hot from the kitchen. We love this place.

Having read all the good reviews we popped in during our visit to Canterbury. Pretty disappointed with the quality of food, squid was very chewy , literally tasted like a piece of rubber, horrible, same story with the other dish we had ( duck)....... will not be returning

Frequent visitors to Canterbury it would have been our third time here. We eat Thai food a lot, menu quite basic and food in past has been ok, 'but last night!!!' They were very busy which usually is a good sign but I thing by the time we had arrived (9.30)the chef had lost the will to live!! The soup... More

The heading says it all really. Dined here with my wife and a friend. Having eaten previously at the other Thai establishment in Canterbury we thought we'd try this one for a change. There is nothing between them. Same menu offerings, similar tired decor.

Good service, food tasty but not exceptional. Bill was over £140 for 8, which we thought was high for what we had eaten. Toilets had a loose seat.

Having read previous reviews I was expecting great things from the Kitchen. The food however was distinctly average. Sauces out of a bottle, undercooked, over sweetened beef curry (tough and chewy), bland lookalike dishes. There's nothing wrong with the Bangkok House, just don't expect culinary excellence. It's nothing special

Really good thai restaurant. Love the authentic food, and the atmosphere is good. Its a hidden little gem in Canterbury worth checking out if your a fan of thai.

I have been using this restaurant for years and have never had a bad meal here. The beef salad and Pad Thai are delicious. Lunchtimes are quiet which in my view is the best time to come.
