Reliable Thai

Food is always good, a little more expensive but worth it. Very nice atmosphere and good service. A little difficult to get take out due to location.

I ordered takeout online (which is so convenient). The restaurant looked very nice inside. My spicy veggie fried rice was excellent. I also had a papaya salad and it was just ok. I've had much better. Overall, it was a decent experience and I would definitely give it another try.

Bangkok West serves delicious and freshly prepared Thai food although portions are not large and prices are somewhat higher than an average Thai restaurant. Service was helpful and friendly when we ordered take out. We enjoyed chicken satay, yellow curry which was at a perfect level of not too spicy, a delicious pad se eau, and refreshing kale and tofu... More

Admittedly, this gem is a favorite of mine and everyone I bring. There are plenty of items beloved and suitable for each person's dietary restrictions, food allergies and sensitivities. Every menu items is plated beautifully. Many dishes include a medley of vegetables, often comprised of broccoli, bok choy, carrots, baby corn, bamboo shoots, sauted onions, red bell peppers, and green... More

In terms of service, we were seated in 5 or so minutes, but nearly 15 until we had water. Our server was polite and efficient with taking our order, and brought our drinks quickly. It was 20 or so minutes before the food came. In terms of food, it was okay. The curry with tofu was nice; the pad se-eau... More

The prices are a but high, but if you want high quality thai food, this is a good place to go. Noodle dishes, vegetable dishes, soups, appetizers, all got rave reviews from our party of eight.

I had the filet that was good overall. I am not a big Thai food person, but I went with a friend and it was good. The soup was excellent, but I can not remember what I ordered. Egg rolls were also delicious with the dipping sauce. Parking is on the street or at the library across the street so... More

If you like your Thai food then you have to give this place a try, the food is delicious and such good value for money. Some of the best Thai food I have tasted was in Thailand, the food I had at Bangkok West was equally as good. The only issue I had was with the duck pancakes as there... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
