I love Thai Food and the food and pricing is good here. Try the Noodle Salad, Tom Kha Soup, Som Tum, and Gai Yang to make a memorable meal. Service is friendly and efficient

We arrived late on a Sunday evening, around 9 pm, but the menu posted in the window said they were open every night until 1:30 am. It became clear almost immediately that this was a place for take-out, not dine in. They were unfriendly and the vegetarian option(s) was one paragraph on the last page. We just didn't like the...

Nice spice, friendly service. Obviously a favorite With "locals" as I observed a number of people greeted by name.

Only tried a few dishes: seafood w basil was spicy but basil makes it really enjoyable. Stir fired veggie, have not had one comparable one for a while, we ordered it wo tofu. Yellow curry, not spicy at all, v coconut taste. Thai iced tea was too sweet, should have asked for less syrup. Overall, good value

I like to visit this restaurant because it is clean, inexpensive, modern setting just like a good restaurant in Asia. Last time I went there with my daughter (13 years) and my friend, my friend and I had noodles (different kinds) and my daughter had a yellow curry, we also ordered appetizers chicken wings (with crispy fried spinach (?)), and...

We have been to this place many times and never were disappointed. Our absolute favorite is the seafood thai basil. Also the chicken with green beans, the salmon curry, and the pad see-ew (we prefer it with beef) are good. And don't forget the sweet sticky rice with mango as a dessert. The staff has always been friendly, service is... More

I've been going here for years, the food is consistently fresh, and the service is fast and friendly. It has a loyal lunch and take out crowd, also they conveniently allow parking in the hotel lot behind the restaurant. Their parang curry is spicy and deliciously addictive.

I'm no fan of Berkeley. It's a diaspora of retired hippies cum stock traders, numbskull college brats, and angry documentary filmmakers. The food however is very high IQ and makes living here almost tolerable. Bangkok Thai is the best Thai in town and one of the best I've had anywhere. It's a "real worlder" place as in it's not owned... More

We decided to try a Thai restaurant which was near us in Berkeley,California. It was conveniently on a main drag - University Avenue. The food was wonderful, and we pride ourselves in comparing Thai food wherever we go. The service was friendly and we were served quickly. The ambience was authentic Thai and relaxing. I would recommend this restaurant if... More

We had Tom Yum Goong (Prawn Sour Soup) Bankok Spicy Fish, Garlic Prawns and sticky rice. Just 2 of us. Lots of good food! Unique flavors to every dish .. you know how sometimes it can all taste...
