Very good Thai food

Very very good Thai food cannot be faulted on the authentic taste. When the menu says hot it does exactly what it says on the tin! We have eaten here a few times and depending how busy it is the service can vary. As a previous reviewer says sometimes drinks can be forgotten (it cost them last time... read more

I return to Bangkok Cafe because the food is delicious! Unfortunately, the service is pretty lousy - drinks orders get forgotten/take a long time to arrive and I always feel like we are being rushed to make room for the next people, which is not nice because it doesn't make for a pleasant experience. However, I would still recommend this... More

We visted this place as a nostalgia visit for friends who have been to Thailand and they said it is the closest thing they have had since they have been back. The food was brilliant the massa man curry was rich and delicious. The staff were friendly but we were left for a while after food and it got super... More

Went here a few weeks back with some friends. Only been once previously and again it didn't disappoint. Friendly and attentive staff but it's the food that is very good. All meals were extremely well presented and tasted delicious. All in all a very nice experience and one you don't mind paying a bit extra because of the food quality.... More

My husband and I honeymooned in Thailand in February, and have been eating our way round Thai restaurants ever since - Bangkok Cafe is one of the better ones we've found since being home! We've been a couple of times now when visiting friends in Cardiff, and both times have had thoroughly brilliant meals. The food is authentic, and brilliantly... More

I'd been recommended Bangkok Cafe by a relative of mine who was full of praises of this Thai restaurant. My intention was to take my girlfriend out for dinner last Tuesday evening, but as time got on, we both decided that a take-out and night in would be more appropriate. I read one of the reviews which slated the take-out... More

My fiancé and I have heard about this from various people and, after a busy day, we decided on a Takeaway. This was my first experience with Thai food and I was not disappointed! We will definitely be heading back to have a meal there. Lovely restaurant, reasonably priced and beautiful food.

We have recently been back to the bangkok cafe, as we wanted a lovely tasty meal before heading up to London for the weekend, and couldn't fault our choice! We LOVE the Bangkok cafe, and if we lived closer, we would be there weekly, I'm sure! heheh! We hadn't booked a table, it was 6pm on a Saturday, and we... More
