This restaurant remains one of my favorite Thai restaurants ever. They must be doing something right because they've been in business for decades. Service is fast. Prices are reasonable. The cook is willing to prepare extra hot food while most places don't believe me and tone the spices down. I always order noodle dishes and have never been disappointed. The... More

This isn't the best Thai food I've ever had, but it's close. People love the place because the food is good, cheap, and fresh. Shrimp is good, so is Pad Thai. Great value.

I'm just getting ready to walk to the Bangkok Cafe, my favorite place, for a late lunch. Here's what I love about the restaurant: you place your order and it comes out quickly and is delicious. Orders are large. I can't stress that the orders come out fast, which is a blessing. Today I am getting the Tom Yum Gai... More

Gotta love a place that can serve really good, spicey Thai within 10 min of placing your order. The service is friendly and attentive (especially if you're a regular) and prices reasonable ($7-10/entree). Never order spice level over moderate--even mild is tasty for most dishes.

The inside is very small and doesn't look like much, but the food is excellent. I get carry-out from here all the time too. If you call ahead, then you don't even have to wait for your food.

Good thai food. So many people working on the kitchen. I would say the could improve the cutlery and the tableware, but whatbyou get for what you pay is aftually very good.

Some of the best Thai food around. Distinct, delicious flavors permeate nearly every dish. Prices are relatively low, service is fast, and staff (owners) incredibly friendly. Atmosphere could be a little better, sure, yet there is something great about it the way it is (Flaming woks behind the counter a regularity). An all-time favorite for many.

THE BEST THAI PLACE IN DETROIT! Nuff said, been going there for over 15 years.

I love supporting local business and compared to the other Thai restaurant in Ferndale this one is a gem. Maybe I'm a little too western, but I enjoy the traditional Thai dishes from other places (even chains) a lot better.
