“Homestyle Thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

An old fallback favorite and perhaps the original Thai in the area. I've been coming here for years. I've tried other restaurants that are more innovative and upscale but I always end up back here. The menus shifts with the season but the pad thai..curries..and sticky rice with mango are constant. Service is good. Decor is homey. The lunch specials are reasonable. Byob if so inclined.

“Way to Slow!!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Bangkok is a great Thai place, however the past 3 times we have come it has taken 2+ hours to get 1 course. The main waitress always says it's because we have 2 cooks. Well every place has 2 cooks so don't complain and get our food. Were going to take a break and let them clean up their act.

“Remains my favorite Thai anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

I have the good fortune to live near here. I've been to Thai restaurants in major and minor cities all over the country and this is my absolute favorite. The menu keeps improving and never stagnant while keeping all the good stuff. Soft shells crabs (in season right now) were delicious. Heat if desired is adjustable. Service is almost always good but can get hectic when it's busy. Never disappointed.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

One of my absolute favorite Asian eatery. Food is authentic and very savory.
We were mesmerized by the tropical fish as well.

“Better get there before noontime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Bangkok Wok has a very nice menu, reasonable prices and very good service. Portions are large and satisfying. My favorite is pad thai chicken and when I order it, there is no need to supplement with soup or egg roll (however those dishes are also quite flavorful). The restaurant tends to be crowded at lunch, so showing up before noon or after 1:00 is a best bet.
