Really good Thai food

Really good food - fresh, tasty, well presented. Pricey drinks. Great design, good atmosphere and good music. Friendly service - but inconsistent. On previous occasions I've felt rushed, on others I've been forgotten.

Honestly is my favourite restaurant anywhere in Cardiff. Service is fab, very attentive. Food is simply amazing and the best pad Thai I've tasted for a very long time. Cannot rate it highly enough and plead people to give it a try. Some things can be spicy - exactly the way it should be!

Yet again - great food, fab service and fab atmosphere. Having come back from Thailand several weeks ago, I thought I would try the sausages for starters (as these are very commonly sold stret food there). They were just as delicious.... I had a lamb dish with chillies and green beans (1st on the menu, I think...) and this was... More

Saturday's football day, it might an be Thai food and football day! As a guest of my grandson and son in law I ate for the first time at Bangkok Cafe. I've eaten at other Thai restaurants, including the Bangkok Cafe'.s big brother He Thai House. Saturday's lunchtime is not my usual time for Asian food but this was special.... More

Whenever I need those Chilli cravings sorted this is where I alway go. Parking is tricky but there are several car parks close by. My only moan is that they are closed every lunchtime except Friday's and Saturday. Lunchtime menu is small but you can also order off the Al la Carte.... I usually combine the two and the staff...

Fab evening, food was amazing and having visited Thailand many times, the food was very authentic. The staff were attentive and helpful. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Best Thai food in Cardiff. Will be going back again and again.

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...

Beautiful delicious food with changing menu and interesting specials. Can't reccomend highly enough. Service charming. Cafe decor but restaurant quality food and service and at a reasonable price. Love it here!
