Fun Date Night

Great little spot tucked away inside small PCH shopping center. It can get pretty busy on weekends. Casual attire but interesting decor and enough closeness to make a date feel imitate within a busy setting. No delivery :-/ however it's worth stopping in for a meal. Attentive, friendly staff.

Food was good but not spicy. We ordered take out. It would have been better to eat in. Fresh vegetables. Steamed. I would have given it 3 1/2 stars if that had been an option.

We read the excellent reviews and were excited for a nice dinner on March 17th. reservations are recommended as the seating is limited. One reviewer had suggested not to be seated near the door (which was open) so we were seated in a back room. the décor in the back room was nice. Our horrible luck would have a group... More

If I had to choose again, I'd skip this place. Linda had a taste for Thai. We did a little research and the Bangkok received pretty good reviews, so we gave it a shot. We called in the order of mixed seafood special with Thai noodles and brought it home to eat. The food was a giant goop of pasty... More

Setting: Located on a strip mall with enough parking space. Interior decor is dark and with enough "kitch" from Thailand. Seating is kind of ok. Avoid the table right by the entrance, you will feel the air + crowds waiting for a table will be staring at your food and your conversation can get difficult. Food: We had noodles, the... More

Reasonably priced for lunch! Large portions and absolutely delicious! Take note there is not a lot of seating. Good service even though they were busy. Parking lot shared with other businesses. Location easy to find.

My wife swears this is the best Thai food this side of Thailand. Traditional Thai food with great service and flavor. Call ahead for a reservation as they fill up quickly with locals in the know.

Though I think Bangkok Bay could up the "hot" in some of its dishes, this is a friendly and relatively inexpensive Thai restaurant with a generous menu. Wait staff are very kind to children and the food comes out in a reasonable time period. I live in a part of the Midwest where good Thai food is hard to find,... More

This is a really nice small Thai restaurant with great ambiance! It's a little pricy, but the food is great and the portions are very large. It's some of the best Thai food I've had and I can't wait to go back, highly recommended!

I had the convenience of staying in the hotel next to this restaurant, and I went to this place multiple times in my three-month stay. They are usually busy during peak dinner hours, so come early or late. I usually order take out myself because the restaurant is not that big itself. Friendly service, clean, cozy. Recommended dishes: Roasted duck... More
