Convenient location; good food

I had chicken pad thai and enjoyed it. Serving size was large enough that I boxed up half of it before I ever started. Reasonable prices.

The service was very slow, including beverages and appetizers and handling of the credit card.. Worse yet, the waitress asked us if we wanted to take our leftovers and my wife and I both said yes, then with both hands with fingers spread wide I pointed to all 3 items and said "yes, we want to take all of these"....

Business lunch. I had Tom Ka Ghai plus a vegetable platter with tofu. The menu says that the platter is either steamed or fried. The waiter did not ask me which I wanted.

Maybe it was a crazy off night for them but this was the worst dining experience I have ever had. Service was laughable, waiters didn't know what table was which and we're constantly giving the wrong food to tables. They were out of ice tea so we opted for soda which was flat and warm. Good tasted like their cook... More

We had a large business dinner with a large group and the restaurant did a very nice job putting together a buffet dinner at a reasonable price. Food was very tasty.

I had a modest meal of fresh rolls and stir fried veggies with a yummy garlic lemon sauce with brown rice. Everything was perfect. The service was excellent.

We ordered 3 dishes for delivery this time. Vegetarian red curry, jungle curry with shrimp, and vegetarian drunken noodle.All were fresh and delicious with lots of spice! Price and portions are reasonable. We've order from Bangkok Bistro maybe 4-5 times in the past few months. They always get the order right. Their delivery times vary but usually it takes a... More
