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

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 love this restaurant, and have since I was introduced to it in college. It never disappoints! The staff is very friendly and helpful, and always makes food perfect!

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

My boyfriend and I went out for dinner at the Bangkok house expecting to get similar quality Thai food we have had at the other Thai places in town. The first thing that should have sent us running out of the place was the fact that there was zero guests in the place; the waiters didn't pay a bit of... More

This basement restaurant adjacent to the University of Ky Campus has been a favorite of professors and students for years. The basement atmosphere is cozy and inviting, but the outdoor steps make it difficult for some visitors. The Thai menu is better than the Chinese offerings. The food ranges from tasty to excellent. The Thai iced tea is especially good.... More

Do you like gray noodles? My pad thai was the worst I've ever had. Reused chopsticks give me the creeps. Avoid this place at all coss.
