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. I suppose I should have been vigilant and made sure she crossed all the Ts and dotted all the Is but I was paying more attention to... More

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

Not impressed. The service was good. The food was spicy but tasteless. I do not think will repeat. The location was excellent.

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

The Bangkok Bistro at Ballston, similar to other restaurants in the area, is on the ground floor with both indoor and outdoor dining space this time of year. The brisk breeze of an autumnal evening bearing through the caverns of Arlington pushed inside for our meal. The waitstaff is very friendly, attentive, and helpful, and took the orders for drinks,...

Dined here alone while staying in Arlington on business. I'm very glad I ordered their signature entree wasabi-encrusted sea bass - a thick piece of fish cooked to absolute perfection, in a tasty and zingy crust that's perfect for sopping up the delicious and slightly sweet ginger sauce. Comfortable place with friendly service on the side of Ballston Commons Mall... More
