We have visited many times. The crispy pad thai is unique. We've never seen this dish at any other Thai restaurant. Another exceptional item is their crab Rangoon.

With the advent of more Thai restaurants in Cincy, Bangkok Bistro just hasn't kept up with the competition or maybe it has declined a little over the years. The food is still good and the ambience is still pleasant and they have great service, but it's no longer the best Thai place in Cincy.

Ignore the review below mine claiming there was "trash" in the food - the "problem" the crabby pants is complaining about isn't worth skipping the restaurant over -but I have to say, the spring rolls were the worst part of the meal - even without a piece of string. My friend loved his Crab Rangoon. I had Thai Spicy Ginger... More

When my daughter bit into her spring roll appetizer, she found a six+ inch piece of string stuck between her front teeth. When I brought this to the manager's attention, I was told that cabbage arrives bundled in string at the restaurant and the string should have been removed before the cabbage was used for cooking (and I was hoping...

If you like Pad Thai...the Crispy Pad Thai is hands down the best I've put in my mouth. They have a great sushi bar and Japanese beers too.

I love Mai Thai in Florence, KY, but for Thai food in Cincinnati? Bangkok Bistro is my favorite. The food is consistently good, but if you are not sure about the spice heat level, go lower than you think. Once, I ordered a 7 and my mouth was on fire! I was sucking on a lime trying to kill the...

We had great service and very good food. The waiter was very knowledgeable and accommodating of our large group of 14, some who arrived late, but he was still able to give us separate checks and get us out in time for our after dinner event! The group seemed to all like the food they ordered.

My husband I were looking for a good/spicy Thai food place when we were in Cincinnati for few days. We came across Bangkok Bistro, and had a pleasant experience dining there. The server was attentive and knowledgable. She let us know about the different types/scale of hot sauces when we told her we love hot and spicy food. Also recommended... More

Reasonably priced, consistently good food. The beer could be a lot colder, however!
