Very good meal

I will start by stating that I am not a regular Thai restaurant customer so I don't have any recent restaurant experiences to use as a comparison. Our table for 4 was ready and waiting and at 6.30 on a Friday evening the restaurant was very quiet. This might explain why our starters arrived very... read more

I have been to the Bangkok house a couple of times for dinner. The food at Bangkok House is passable for authentic Thai but it is not the best I've had. Some of my favourite dishes from Bangkok House include grilled chicken, and Chu Chee pla cod (deep fried cod with curry sauce). Most of the time, I find the... More

Really nice food. The thai decor is beautiful, and there is a lovely atmosphere. The lunch menu is especially well priced at around six pounds for a dish with rice and the food comes quickly. Would highly recommend.

If you are looking for traditional UK-type Thai food, you will find this place to be quite good. All the traditional dishes are on the menu. The food is properly prepared and nicely presented. You are not going to find much in the way or exotic Thai food, but you will be delighted if what you want is traditional. Perhaps... More

I was impressed with the Thai decor of the restaurant, the beautiful carved wooden table. I had a nice authentic taste of the red curry with prawn Pad Thai. It was a good combination of Thai flavour like I had it in Thailand! Even they were very busy but the food came very fast with standard of service. We finished... More

We visited at 2pm on Tuesday the 28th of October. We'd been really looking forward to some Thai style food. The opening hours stated the they were open until 3pm. We planned on having a few dishes and then leaving before closing time. No chance- we were greeted by a rather aggressive (senior looking) figure who simply snarled at us... More

I normally hold this as the best Thai in Oxford, however the last 2 visits have both suffered from poor service, both slow and very abrupt (almost rude) when asking for more drinks, water and how is the food coming on! Food quality is still very good and the surroundings of the building are still impressive, but I fear it... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday to celebrate my husbands birthday. We booked before arriving and were shown to our table prompt, lovely decor and a good atmosphere. We ordered a mixed starter which wasn't anything special and we weren't told what was on the platter too be honest we have had a lot better mixed starters at another Thai... More

The interior decor of this restaurant is good. Food is mediocre. I don't understand how people can rate it 5/5 in trip advisor for such blend food. If you want good food, you should go across the road and try the Korean restaurant (Bamboo) or Sojo or Opium Den! The staff was rude and nosy. The middle age male waitor/manager... More
