vegetarians, try the spicy mock duck + buddhas feast

restaurant ambiance and service are both nice. on a bust friday or saturday night, expect to wait. it can also be a bit loud, so during peak times it's not easy to manage little kids. if you're a vegetarian, definitely order the spicy mock duck, but also order the buddhas feast as the mock dock... read more

Bangkok 54 is one of Arlington's consistently highly rated restaurants. It is superb. Prices are moderate. Portions are huge - good combination. We always take home leftovers for lunch the next day. . We live close and I find we are drawn there on cold dismal days for an intimate - warm place to eat and catch up with each... More

I have been to Bangkok 54 many times and each time got out with much satisfaction. This is an example of Thai restaurant with class but maintain the Thainess of the place (unlike many good looking Thai restaurants that cater to the taste and the like of American public only). I stopped by today to visit and got my favorite... More

A previous review complained they were closed and boarded up. That was the grocery attached to the restaurant which had a fire but is also open now. Food, atmosphere and specials anew awesome. Our go-to Thai place.

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
