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

After recently having moved to this area permanently, we have dined here several times and I must say the food is always quite fresh, presentation is well executed and the service has always been superb. You cannot go wrong with this restaurant! And if you are truly fortunate to meet the lovely owner Pron, she will charm you into wanting... More

Even though we have eaten at the Bangkok several times, this is my first review. We started by sharing the Bangkok Spring Rolls and Tom Yum Goong soup. I had the Panang Curry w/ Beef and she had the Hot Basil w/ Scallops both at medium spicy. Everything was delicious. The waiter was pleasant and though is was quiet when... More

Everyone I know in the area speaks very highly of Bangkok - it's a local favorite. My experience has been very average, and I am unlikely to return. I have become partial to other Thai restaurants and this just was not nearly as good. Very subjective, your experience may be better!

My favorite restaurant is local and Chinese. But, for a change I thought we should try this Thai food we have heard so much about. Well, my husband liked it much better than Chinese. I am still Chinese at heart but this was very, very good food. I was really surprised. I thought it would be spicy but what we... More

We go to all the area restaurants and equally enjoy this place because it's clean and the food is very good. The prices are good and the service is wonderful. Nice place to unwind and enjoy the variety of good food.
