The Pad Thai was so good!! My son had the fried duck and it was also good! My son says he eats there often. I also tried Thai ice tea for the first time, it was pretty good. The service was a little slow, but the waitress was very personable. The place was packed when we went, though, so that... More

My wife and I took our nephew to Bangkok 54 for dinner. He was just in town for a couple of days. He's been to Thailand a few times but said he never had Thai food in the U.S. I selected Bangkok 54 based on its location and TripAdvisor reviews. It was easy to find and even better, had its... More

I ordered the Pad Thai with Shrimp, Spring Rolls and Thai Tea takeout delivery and everything was delicous. The service was timely and friendly. I look forward trying other dishes from their extensive menu especially the spicier options. You will not be disappointed. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Arlington.

We are in VA to visit my son who is stationed near by and decided to try some thai! Had the yellow curry with chicken and Panang all was pretty tasty! The restaurant was clean and service was good!

Ate here the other night. There's a small dedicated lot behind the restaurant - if you wait long enough, you should be able to squish into a spot. Spaces seem to turn over quickly as the place does a bustling take out business. I walked in the back door from the parking lot and probably close to ten people were... More

I appreciate that no matter what time of day I come here, I can always get a table even though it looks very busy. It's busy for a reason, their food and cocktails are consistently delicious. I have yet to eat anything I haven't liked. Parking is a struggle, tight, small lot behind restaurant and service is average. Fortunately there... More

Enjoyed a great meal with our son. He had heard about Bangkok 54 and wanted to try it. Wow! What a menu and variety of dishes. I enjoyed their Stir-fry Broccoli with Veggies while he loved the Pad Thai. Fantastic atmosphere, location and prices. A must go to when you're in Arlington, VA.
