Dispite pleasant staff, food was very mediocre. Watery sauces , rice with little or no flavouring or seasoning. Staff chewing gum waiting on. Really not a good idea young children waiting on. Sadly will not be returning.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times but the ambiance, service and food just gets better at each visit. The welcome is exceptional and the menu caters for all tastes. Definitely the restaurant of choice for anyone in Penrith.

Ordered a Jungle Curry to takeaway. Beware - this is not curry. It can only be described as a tasteless soup of crunchy vegetables. The soup has a water like consistency, unlike curry which generally had a thick consistency. Yes there are some chilli spices in it, but it tastes very bland.

Without a doubt, the best restaurant in town. The new décor is fab, great service, delicious authentic Thai food, cosy atmosphere. All the staff are so kind and welcoming. Very reasonable prices too! Really is worth the visit.

One of the best - if not *the* best - restaurants in Penrith. The food is excellent, fresh and unpretentious - the coconut rice is particularly good. It all comes with friendly and attentive service.

The food was really good we had a mixed platter to start which was decorated with flowers made out of vegetables. I then had the Masaman curry which was lovely and creamy. My partner had the sweet & sour stir fry. All round a fantastic experience

Visiting the Bangkok Bistro under new ownership, we were pleased to find that the quality of food and friendly service met the same high standards that we found on previous visits. The food is delicious and the new owners are very welcoming. A great choice for an evening out in Penrith.

Food was lovely, really nice. We enjoyed all of our food and it was a really good price. Our waiter was lovely and helpful. The restaurant was very cold and so our food soon got chilly. There was gas heaters on. The table we chose to sit at, when we got closer was swamped with water and a mop leant... More

Amazing thai food in a tucked away spot. We were super surprised and extremely pleased to enjoy some fabulous authentic thai food on our coast to coast cycle ride. As we married in Thailand, we were delighted to be transported back on a wave of nostalgia and great tastes! Thanks Eugene and Nam for a delicious treat and really friendly... More
