Dinner was pretty good ... I would not order Thom Yum soup again - it did not taste like any other I've had and I have it quite often. Panang curry was blah, pad Thai was good. Took 50 minutes to get our food and when we ordered, we were the only ones in the restaurant besides a couple almost... More

My wife and I went to Bangkok Bistro for lunch. They have a pretty good menu and a good lunch special. We hit them right at the lunch rush, so the food took a while, but the service was pleasant. I'd definitely come back.

A delivery person came to our door and, in barely-understandable English, more than once demanded a personal service fee, walking away once with the food to prove his point. This in spite of the fact that the restaurant imposes a delivery fee. He at last relented, but not without a stern warning not to provide repeat business.

Red curry had too much of coconut milk. It was missing the major flavor. Tom yanggoong was not even close. The noodle dishes were ok. ..... 2.5 star

I walked into this place for the first time, I expected to have an average experience at best. It was spacious and empty with generic décor. Much to my surprise, the food was well above average with plenty of spice. The service was excellent, and attentive. It may have been slightly influenced by my young children, but by then end...

This restaurant has good food. It's Thai. Try it. Location is great. Arrive at restaurant at 6:59 and you'll get parking right outside or a block down the street. Street parking is controlled on certain times.

Number one reason I went to the trouble of reviewing was that the manager thoughtfully accommodated our special request. Delicious food (ordered Thai BBQ and Pad Pik Khin Beef). Although the waitress was not Thai, she told us what the Thai people order from the menu. Even though there were many people there and music playing, there are cozier seating... More

Visited this Thai restaurant after learning about it through a restaurants.com voucher. Overall the experience was good. The food was tasty and plentiful. The server forgot our tea and we had to ask for water refills, but she was working alone on a night when the weather was bad and the place was a bit slow. We will try again... More

I placed a take out order for 4 entrees. The coupon on the web page says a free appetizer for orders of at least 2 entrees. When I asked for two free appetizers, I was told I could only have one per order. I pointed out that I would just call back and make two separate orders, one under my... More

Overall the food is average and the service is a little slow, but it is convenient to the Ballston Mall and the staff is friendly. The price is also fair. I had the noodle soup which was pretty salty. Beware, when they say something is spicy, they mean it! The slaw appetizer is spicy indeed!
