One of my favorite places. The restaurant is always attractive and clean, and the food is very good. The staff is excellent -- they remember us and know what we want and are friendly and fun to talk with. I highly recommend this restaurant.

It is hard to know where to start when singing the praises of Bangkok Restaurant. The ambience is great--beautiful Thai artwork and hand carved furniture. The rooms are well lighted and clean. The service is polite, friendly and accomodating. Most importantly, the food is outstanding. We have been to many Thai restaurants on the East Coast and this restaurant tops... More

The customer is always treated like a VIP and the food is as fresh as it gets. The owner/head chef comes out of the kitchen on breaks to meet and great like you were a long time friend or family member. Moreover, her Thai food is the best I have ever had in a Thai restaurant. My favorites are traditional... More

Had lunch here with spouse. A nice change from where they use to be located. We shared the Fried Spring rolls. I had the Vegetable soup. We both had the Bamboo Shoots, me with chicken and spouse with beef. Chai tea was good, and for dessert we had coconut ice cream with pineapples. I thought the service was great. Meal... More

Stopped by with family for a quick bite. Service was prompt and friendly. The food wasn't authentic and was quite sweet for tai as well as it seemed that all of the seafood and meat was in the freezer for some time Not a do-over

This restaurant has a beautiful Thai design interior and décor. The prices are very reasonable, however, the food lacks authenticity. They obviously cater to a sweet American taste. We ordered two soups. Mine lacked spice and my wife's lacked taste. She ordered the Massaman curry and both of us were stunned when the server brought them to the table. The... More

The Bangkok has beautiful decor that feels very relaxed. The service was great, the waiters and waitresses really care about their customers and want them to feel welcomed. The food is great as well, good size portions and reasonably priced!

We've eaten here twice, one time there was a 2-piece band there playing. Quite nice atmosphere. The food presentations are fabulous, portions generous, and they even have take-out that can be pre-ordered via phone. (if you have the menu - or try here: http://www.menupix.com/menudirectory/menu.php?id=1901248 ) They participate on restaurant.com - so go there to get some certificates.

The food was surprisingly delicious and the decor was very nice. Quite busy for weekend lunch but the waitress was very friendly and pleasant. Would definitely return.

We love Asian foods but my husband has been put on a very restricted low-salt diet and many restaurants can't or won't accommodate this request but Bangkok was very happy to recommend and prepare a wonderful meal for us. I had the yellow curry and my husband had a stir-fry with snow peas - just delicious. We were treated to... More
