The original owner sold the business to one of its former employees who is from Thailand. The new restaurant is called Thai Thai Bistro

Upon arriving at Bangkok Thai (the sign reads Thai Thai on the outside), we beat the dinner service so there wasn't much of a crowd... We were greeted by one of the waitresses who showed us to our table with the menu. There were many choices for dinner but we did notice that there were only non-alcoholic beverages to choose...

Every time I go here, the waitresses and bartenders have smiles on their faces and are very kind. I also appreciate the vegetarian and vegan options, and that you can substitute tofu (cooked to your liking) for pretty much anything. :)

Bangkok Thai offers quite a varied menu, so much so that even my husband, who is a very picky eater and is usually only happy if he has just a piece of meat and a carb on his plate, was able to find several items that he likes. For Thai food affectionados, you will have a hard time deciding what... More

The Bangkok Thai Bistro 's food is much better than its companion restaurant in Colonie. When I mentioned that to our waitress she said that she gets told that all the time. The atmosphere is mixture of old, funky and modern. When we entered the restaurant the bar area had a vaguely lingering scent of cigar and cigarette despite being... More

The service is always friendly and the food is good. I enjoyed the drunken noodles and duck. The space is dark and dated. I would recommend it,

I recently went there for lunch with some co-workers. We were the first people in the door and seated when the restaurant opened at 11:30. We ordered our meal at 12:00 and at 12:35 still had not gotten our meal. When the meal arrived about 12:40 I had it put in a take out carton because I had to get... More

Have eaten here a number of times and have tried several of the dinners - all excellent and fresh. I have no idea how to determine how authentic the food is, but it seems comparable or better than Thai food I have had elsewhere.

Excellent array of choices; food beautifully prepared and presented. The wait staff is pleasant, available when you need them but they do not hover. We stayed longer than usual and were not pressed to leave. Decor is welcoming but not overdone. Try one of their signature mixed drinks. Great pre-theater dinner. (Proctor's Theater is just down the street.)
