“One of the very very best in Harrisburg area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I had heard many recommendations before going last night on a stormy mid-holiday weekend, and the place was packed and the food was sensational and the service prompt, friendly, courteous. This is a go to restaurant. Wonderful Thai food.

“Yummy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I love this place. There is something about the slightly tacky atmosphere but friendly stuff that hits the spot. It also has very friendly menu for vegans.

“Best Thai in South Central Pa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

My in-laws, son, husband and I went last night. Started off with the Tom Ka Kai coconut chicken soup and Thai slaw. The crunchy, fresh slaw is a nice accompaniment to most of the entrees. The soup has chicken, mushrooms, lemongrass, cilantro, and ginger. It's a party in your mouth with every bite! Love it! Followed with the Chicken Pad Thai, the special which was Red Snapper, and the Masaman Curry with grean beans added. Bangkok Wok has never, I mean never, disappointed us. That says a lot as I/we can be hard to please. They use the best ingredients including fresh meats, seafood, herbs and vegetables expertly prepared which makes for a divine eating experience! The flavor combinations just explode in your mouth. Finished the meal with some of their pineapple and coconut ice cream and creme brulee. Again, homemade and delightful. It is obvious that the employees care about your dining experience and are very eager to please as is the owner!

“Strip Mall Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I first visited Bangkok Wok in the mid-1990s. I do not know why I don't go more often. Every time I visit, I am reminded of how good and authentic this place is. The owner is hands-on and cares about the service and the quality of the food. The specials are particularly yummy. The decor is one-of-a-kind, with everything brought here from Thailand. Extensive menu with everything you'd expect to find. Do not be fooled by the exterior--strip mall blahness. Go in and feast your eyes, nose, and tummy on the area's best Thai food.

“Best Thai in Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

If you like good food and are less concerned about atmosphere, the Bangkok Wok is a great place. Several Thai places with newer and/or nicer digs are around, but they just do not compare when it comes to the food itself. I usually meet the family here for lunch once or twice a month.

Favorite - Drunken Noodles with Pork and don't hold back on the spice!
