The food tasted good and the staff was nice, but there are some better places in the area. Its still worth stopping for if you are craving Thai food.

Beautiful restaurant with an expansive menu...tough to decide what to order. I had the lemongrass chicken and broccoli-amazing flavor marinated overnight with this dish. My husband had a chicken and eggplant dish that he could not stop talking about. We were sorry the meal ended..lovely, friendly service. Impeccably clean establishment.

The food is authentic and quite tasty at Bangkok West. The setting is upscale, so unusual for Thai restaurants in the US. The service is sold, and I recommend the pak kra prao, the green curry, and the isarn style sausages. Nice selection of wines for a Thai restaurant, as well.

Nice airy space, friendly staff and delicious food. Yellow curry had super fresh vegetables and delicate flavors. Pork belly on Jasmine rice with fragrant, sweet sauce and pickled cabbage. Excellent dining.

There's so much choice in Santa Monica for all palettes you really are spoiled for choice, however in the week we were there, this is the only restaurant we visited twice, why, because it's good, simple as that, beautiful Thai food, informative and good service, if like Thai food give it a go, hope you agree with me

We've been going to Bangkok for about three years now. I discovered this restaurant just passing by. We'd been looking for a good thai restaurant since we moved to Santa Monica, and had tried at least three others which we did not enjoy. From our first dinner at Bangkok we knew we had found our thai place. My husband loves... More

We first discovered BWT 9 years ago on our honeymoon (from the UK). To say we've travelled a third of the way around the planet just to come back for those Bangkok rolls and roti would be an exaggeration. But only just! It's still some of the best Thai food I've ever tasted. We'll be back there again tonight!

Called in one evening whilst in area. Good meal and very good service. Would go again. Rice dish is huge so only need one between two. If in Santa Monica it's one of the better places to eat.

Very nice menu selection, lots of food and drink choices. I had the green curry and friend had salmon. Reasonable prices, worth a visit

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
