Excellent food

Amazing food! Really authentic and when you ask for spicy dish you will get SPICY food! I had Penang Beef Curry! So good! We will definitely be back! Atmosphere is good, and staff is efficient. Recommend!

We had lunch at the Bangkok Bay Restaurant while staying in Redwood City and liked it so much that we had dinner there that same day. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and very pleasant. The service was great and the food, which was healthfully prepared, was really tasty and plentiful. We will eat there again on our return visit... More

wanting something different from all the Christmas dinners, I was looking forward to this family-esque run restaurant, given the photo of the crown princess of Thailand along with the the resto owners/staff/family gracing you as you enter the establishment, one tells thyself that ahh yes this place will be authentic and good. Service was pleasant, the elder gentlemen did have... More

We were seated promptly and our orders were taken aa soon as we put our menus down. Our appetizer- satay- came out quickly and was good. So far so good. Two of four entrees came out. It took another five minutes for the rest of the meals to arrive. The catfish was completely overcooked. The eggplant was bland. The prawns... More

We've never actually eaten in the restaurant, but have done the take out for years now. Although it is not traditional Thai cuisine for most of the dishes, the food is really good and consistent. We have never been disappointed with our order.

Very friendly owner who makes you feel at home and recommends their very tasty dishes to you. Curries are very reliable, and good selection of appetizers, and on occasion Northern Thai dishes that are more unusual. A very good restaurant. Closes a little early at 9:30, but then everything in Redwood City does.

I ordered food for delivery through Bangkok Bay's website (serviced by Order Ahead). The food arrived hot and it was some of the best Thai food I've had. Perfectly spicey at spice level 1, lots of pumpkin and lots of veggies (I am vegetarian). I also had the pineapple fried rice which was great. We got the dessert "triple delight"... More

What a wonderful surprise! We've been driving by this restaurant for 18 years and just popped in last night for the first time. Fresh and flavorful...we enjoyed the red curry with chicken, the yellow curry chicken, the angel wings, the drunken noodles with beef and the honey glazed grilled pork. Great staff, welcoming and attentive.

As soon as we entered this restaurant, we knew the reviews on Trip Advisor were correct! The restaurant was packed with people not only at the tables but people who were waiting for takeout. I love Drunken Noodles with tofu and yes, they made it for me very spicy. My partner had Tom Yum soup and a minced chicken dish.... More
