A family-owned Lexington institution

Bangkok House has been in the same location near UK for years, and that is a testament to how good the place is. The basement location is nothing fancy, but the food and the service are outstanding! Today for lunch my wife and I split a Shrimp Tom Yum soup, then she had the Chicken Lo Mein and I... read more

This place has been a favorite of mine since I was a child. The pad thai is absolutely fantastic! The people who work here have always been so precious. Very authentic and consistently wonderful. Try the spring roll!

The food was excellent- we had an egg roll, the beef Penang curry and the chicken Tom Kai Khai...the taste was spot on with the fresh herbs. So why just three stars? 1. Surly service - there was an older lady who looked like the proprietor and she could hardly work up a smile and wanted to charge me for... More

Bangkok house is a cute little eatery located underneath of Campus Cafe. I have ordered take-out from here before and the order has always been correct, delicious, and quickly ready for pickup. The vegetables along with the dish always seem very fresh. The staff is very polite as well.

I have visited Thailand over 50 times in my life and I always look for a place that has great food that tastes very Thai. Bangkok House was excellent and had great food that truly reminded me of being in the Land of Smiles. I love the Green Curry Chicken.

I have eaten here many times on trips to Lexington--it's right across from the University of Kentucky. Very nice place--my favorite dishes are Pad Thai and Cashew chicken. Very tasty dishes, service is quick and the service friendly. It's a great place for a quick lunch if you're on campus. Reasonable prices--for any budget.

I have been eating at Bangkok at many years. It is a family run business and a very nice environment. I have eating many things there but my favorites are the yellow curry, assorted vegetables and their sweet and sour chicken.

I have been eating here since I was in college in '95. This privately owned and family run Thai restaurant is incredible. Everything I have ever tried is great. The owners (and their college-age help) are always friendly, efficient and attentive. The one con would have to be parking. Located on UK's college campus, with only 3 designated parking spots,...

This is the best Pad Thai around by far. I have a friend that has been to Thailand and he hands down thinks this is the best place and I have to agree just on taste. Great place to grab a meal on campus and it is always great. I have gone so far as to buy THREE orders between... More
