“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

I love Thai. I had three "hole in the wall" places in Los Angeles that I frequented each every week! I got spoiled. Haven't found anything close around here. One or two dishes here and there, but not across the board good. Thought I'd try a new dish this week. Hardly had any flavor except the sliced green jalapeno's they stuck in there when I requested spicy. Heat and no flavor. The Tom Ka Gai was a 3 and the basil fried rice was 2-3 on a scale of 5. One nice thing is that the place was completely empty so it was quiet.

“thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

A friend and myself tried this restaurant for the first time while visiting Frederick. We both tried the the cashew chicken. The serving size was very big and they also gave us free refills of the white rice. As one of the other reviewers noted, the restaurant can be hard to notice from the main road. They are located in a storefront in a shopping center.

“some better, some best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

My wife loves Thai food and we live in Hagerstown, where there are no Thai restaurants. I didn't feel like driving to Montgomery county or DC so I checked out Trip Advisor for Frederick and picked Bsngkok Thai Kitchen based on the reviews here.

Everything was pretty much true, given that you always have the typical malcontent and the ones that say everything was perfect - I take them with a grain of salt.

I will give my personal observations and star ratings - a 5* being awesome based on what we ate there and what we took home for later. We always do this so we have food to eat, without cooking dinner some nights. Total bill before tip was $44.

#7 kanon jeb - steamed dumpling stiffed with pork and shrimp. wasn't freshly made and bland flavor - 3 1/2 *s

#11 larb gai - spicy - marinated ground chicken and other delicious herbs and spices with 1/4 head of iceburg lettuce to peel and make lettuce wrap, if you want. - delicious and fresh - 4 1/2 *s

#13 yum pla muk - spicy - marinated spicy squid tossed in lemon juice,onions,lemon grass and mint leaves. the squid was very tender (not tough and chewey). The main hero in this dish is the lemon, delicate sauce - dee-lish - 5*s

# 16 ped krob - spicy - simply awesome stir fried crispy duck in chilli and garlic sauce topped with crispy basil p I can't wait to go back there soon to get this - 5*s

#28 gaeng kare - spicy (?) - Chicken in sweet yellow curry with tomatoes, onion and potatoes. Maybe it is just me (although my wife agreed) but this curry was way too sweet was not spicy at all - although it was good enough that we ate it all :-) - 3 1/2 *'s

We will be back - soon!

“Hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

When if Frederick for business I read the good reviews in Tripadvisor and decided to pick up some take out lunch here. I had difficulty finding Bangkok Thai Kitchen as it is set back from the highway in a shopping center and called for directions. Even if they were just opening they promptly answered the phone. ( they are behind the Outback.)
They offered me a drink of water and a seat while I waited, a classic Thai tradition and treated my modest takeout order with importance. The food was great. Satay, steamed buns and curry were in the classic Bangkok tradition. When I am back in Frederick I will return.

“Yummy, fresh Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

I've tried all the Thai restaurants in Frederick, and this is by far my favorite. If you like "Thai spicy", you will not be disappointed!
