If you are in the area and undecided about where to eat head to Bangkok Cafe. The atmosphere is lovely, the service is attentive and the food is delicious. Satay starter is to die for and is a must try!

Booked a table for 5 pm, and were one of the early diners. Good polite service. We had satay and calamari for starters respectively, followed by chicken with cashew nuts for me as a main course. Everything was excellent. I wholeheartedly recommend it. The only blemish on the evening was the result of the rugby match!

My fiancé and I are big fans of Thai food and have been wanting to visit Bangkok Cafe for some time. We were not disappointed! Everything on the menu sounded delicious and the staff eventually helped us pick the Thai calamari and the lettuce wraps to start- both were fantastic, followed by the lamb massaman curry and the red duck...

Have eaten in other Thai restaurants in Cardiff, but the Bangkok Cafe is definitely the best. The portions are all of a good size and the taste and the flavours (and the spiciness) are excellent. The service was first class, so friendly and (not always the case) gave us plenty of time to decide on our choices from the menu.... More

A nice atmosphere always awaits you here in this popular restaurant in Canton. The food is always tasty and high quality. Service not too bad either. Better value for money at this daughter of Thai House Guilford Crescent.

This was our third visit to the Bangkok Cafe, but the first time I've written a review. Each time I've been more impressed than the last, as the food here is simply fantastic: freshly cooked, delicately spiced, impeccably presented. For starters, I ordered the battered prawns with plum sauce, while my husband went for the sticky pork ribs. Both were... More
