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

My wife loved the Chi iced tea, they have dishes that range from no spice to spicy. I ordered a "on fire" noodle dish that lived up to its name, but I really enjoyed it. A few others in our party did not find the spice as enjoyable as me. My wife who is no fan of spice ordered a... More

We liked the food. Their wine list could be better. The place was not crowded but there were a few couples dining.

We were a group of six who went for dinner having reserved a table. On arrival we were welcomed warmly and directed to our table. Service was excellent and there was very little time from ordering your food and it being served at the table - quick service. The quality of food is also very good - one of the... More
