Fab food, attentive wait staff and quick service. Great variety of vegetarian choices too. Are there on a busy Saturday night in a party of six. Will go back

I've driven by Bangkok 54 dozens of times, and been next door for movies at the Arlington Drafthouse, but the exterior never appealed to me. So when looking for a lunch place around Columbia Pike and Glebe Rd. it was not the first place that popped to mind. But it will be from now on. Well prepared food, an interesting... More

Lick the plate good. The waiter recommended the 54 fried duck and it was awesome, and spicy. He also recommended the Pad Thai - very tasty. The sweet and sour was just the right mixture. We don't care for fired tofu and would not order that again. We will eat there when in DC.

I have visited this place several times over the years and have never had a bad meal. The service is usually quite good, though I have primarily been for lunch. The menu is extensive and has plenty of options. Enjoyed the pad kee mow on my last visit (my usual dish at Thai places). The small parking lot out back... More

I've been here a few times with my husband and have never had a bad meal. In fact, I've never had anything I didn't completely love here. The service is always great, attentive and friendly. Food is fantastic and atmosphere is great. Love Bangkok 54!

As a family, we are in the process of searching for an alternative to Chinese cooking, a staple for so many years. Thai food has moved to the top of the list with many similarities to Chinese, but major differences in sauces and dishes. The search for excellent Thai restaurants has uncovered a number throughout the Washington Metro area, particularly... More

What a great restaurant I have experienced!!! I really love the service they offer my wife and me very much. The restaurant itself was very nice and peaceful. The food was fantastic and tasty. I'm glad to have this best time in Bangkok 54.

Great food. Four of us enjoyed four different entrees plus appetizers; we were not disappointed and there was very little to take home. Great service. People were tripping over themselves to help us. The only bad part of the evening was that it was very loud in there and difficult to hear our dinner companions speak. We'll definitely go back,... More

Great variety on the menu, we had the dumplings which where among the best I had, followed with a Pineapple Fried rice out of this world. My wife had the special of the day, a rockfish that she shared with my daughter and it was exquisite. Great service, nice decor and atmosphere and to seal the deal a parking lot... More

The food was excellent. The service was great. The only downfall is the fact that the portion size is a little small and not your normal US portion size.
