Good Thai

Lovely decor, traditional thai. Very good food, fresh ingredients and good service. We'd recommend it the ambiance is very authentic.

My idiosyncratic test for a Thai restaurant is Pad Thai. Bangkok's came with every just right, perhaps a tad dry. The courteous staff was helpful.

We visited Bangkok House for my mother in laws 70th bday lunch. The food was tasty. I ordered steamed dumplings for starter which were beautiful and chicken pad thai for main which was lovely. The specials were advertising chicken massaman which I originally wanted to order however unfortunately they forgot to remove the specials sheet as they could not cook... More

There were not many people in the restaurant so lacked atmosphere but the decoration was veryThai and the staff were nice. Pleasant Thai meal with large portions, mixed starter was delicious and the Pad Thai impossible to eat it all. The price was very reasonable they offered a 5% discount for cash.

Visited the Bangkok house, Saturday 16th May with friends, this used to be a good restaurant, but I think might have new owners. The food was really good, quality and portion size, but from the start, the service was shocking. Our table was pointed out and we made out own way to it, looked at the menu and placed drinks...

the place look dated but if you know how to order the food is great. You have to mention that you want the Thai way then staff will recommend you real Thai food and Thai taste. I recommend Esarn - North Easter food ie Somtum ( Papaya Salad) , Esarn Sausages, Grilled Chicken. Basic Satay is also good. I am... More

Bangkok House used to be really good. Maybe they were having a bad night! We were asked if we wanted drinks three times, they did eventually come but no water. This came and one full glass was knocked over by the waitress onto our friend's lap, shirt and trousers were soaked! The waitress was apologetic but failed to return with... More

The food is the best we've had in the UK, and reading the reviews this is a common opinion. Also due to the reviews we expected the staff/host to be rude. The main host (presumed the owner) was quite abrupt with no smile to start with, but got the job done quickly and well, and after we said a few... More
