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

We ended up for dinner at the Bangkok Bistro in Ballston because our first choice was unable to seat us without a reservation. I had been at the same location a few years back when the restaurant had a different name. I do not know the history, whether the restaurant just underwent a name change or has altogether different owners,... More

I have eaten at Bangkok Bistro many times, dine in, take out and delivery. They have a wide variety of dishes and everything I have had has been good. I really love their fried tofu appetizer, and I am by no means someone who generally enjoys tofu. They give you a free entrée on your birthday, and if you dine... More

I was a big fan of Bangkok Bistro's Prospect Street location in Georgetown. That restaurant no longer exists (was sold to another owner), and the Bangkok Bistro in Ballston is a low-quality version of its Georgetown sister. Specifically, the quality of the food is uneven (though usually disappointing). The noodle dishes tend to be bland and gluey, and although the... More

Good food, very nice location, restaurant is very well maintained. The food is very tasty and comes with all the extras you expect. Highly recommend this to others who like or want to try the thai experience.
