Spicy, fresh, and recommended

I am not an expert on authentic Thai cuisine but this is good food! The space is very nice and accommodating but the food is truly the star. Great flavors and all freshly prepared (hence the need to make time for this spot). Always packed and popular. I've tried a number of different dishes and... read more

Having been tasked by a well-known German-born Thai chef in Las Vegas to sample the Thai restaurants in Columbia, I made Bangkok my first stop. Pleasant enough surroundings, but it took almost an hour for food to arrive (granted, this was Saturday, and they were busy.) That would have been OK, but the food wasn't. The chicken satay was two... More

Went there for lunch. knew that they are slow at getting the food there, so we got there at 11:30. Got the drink and knew to order the food then. It would have been a longer wait if not. Got the #9 Nheu Phat, Paht Nam Mon Hoy, or Kai Paht Kratiem (picked the one with garlic sauce) with a... More

Went for a business lunch, and although there was a long wait, it was worth it. Soups, veggie rolls, and pad thai was all delicious. Worth the wait, though more expensive than other Thai options available.

I was in Columbia alone on business and sat at the bar. The bartender was chatty and engaging. When I asked about their Asian whiskeys, the owner chimed in and was very knowledgeable. The bar has a unique selection. The food was excellent (and I've traveled extensively in Thailand). It's not dogmatically Thai, but unique and fun. Everything is prepared... More

I took my daughter and her family here for a family celebration, and the hour wait for food was a bit long in my view, particularly with a 3 and a 5 year old waiting for their food. I had curry and it was just okay. I wanted chicken panang, but they did not have this dish, so I settled... More

My wife had chicory coffee that she really liked. I had laph with with and it was tasty and an excellent dish.... More

I frequent Bangkok Gardens and anything I have ever tried has been great however, my personal favorites are the Demon Chicken and the Phat Thai with peanut sauce. I would highly recommend either of those dishes.

Very spicy foods, good that they have vegan options. My friend enjoyed it more than I did - had a curry, thought it was delicious.
