Decent food, place a bit smelly

Came late to get some takeout. While I was waiting I noticed that the place isn't very clean (not very dirty, but somewhere in between). Food is pretty good though. I'd recommend take out. A pity they don't have fresh juices, coconut or real mango juice would have been nice.

We stopped by for dinner at the end of the year. The dining room was cozy. We were seated promptly. There were two servers working that night and the restaurant was less than half full. The food was mediocre - not as flavorful as we hoped. Service was a bit slow. I asked the server if the BBQ chicken is... More

This place is not bad for lunch. They are pretty fast with the food and the food is pretty tasty. Nothing exceptional, but worth stoping for a quick lunch if you are in the mood for Thai.

This place used to be our favorite Thai place when we lived in Palo Alto. Our last visit was very disappointing. One dish good (chicken curry) one so-so (pad-thai) and one bad (plum-sauce beef). This time it was way worse than the other Thai options in town.

We ate outside which, unlike most restaurants in Palo Alto, was in the backyard rather than on the street. The food was very good: shared Coconut Milk soup with combination seafood and had one of the specials, Mango Shrimp. Both had a hint of spiciness that gave flavor without overwhelming. The presentation of the Mango Shrimp was nice --very colorful... More

There are a few Thai restaurants in downtown Palo Alto. This restaurant is one of the better ones. However, because it is one block away from University, you can usually find a table here relatively easily. Their duck rice noodle soup is really good. Definitely give it a try if you are in the area and have a craving for... More

Lunch was pretty fast, the food was good, not exceptional. Good for a quick lunch at work. I had the eggplant, was a bit oily for me. Work collegue had the roast duck noodle which he thought was great. Maybe i'll try that next time.

A separate menu for vegetarians - very extensive. Great service. The complimentary vegetarian soup is peppery and light. My tofu dish of son-in-law was perfectly prepared and nicely balanced. Would definitely go again.

I visited Bangkok Cuisine with another colleague that I was taking a class with and I was blown away by the quality of the food. All the food was cooked to order and used extremely fresh ingredients. They happily accommodated our request that they create "authentic" Thai food for us as they would eat it themselves. We had the Forest... More
