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

The restaurant is a little way from the main hustle and bustle but definitely worth that extra effort to get there. It was busy but not oppressively so and a very nice atmosphere. We had no reservations but we were fortunate that there was one table available. The food was excellent and they were able to accommodate a few minor... More

It's a small restaurant with only a few seating. However I did see a large group there celebrating birthday. We were 5 of us including 2 kids. We had to wait there for sometime as the place was full when we entered and sadly for us when we called to check if seats were available they said it was but... More

We selected this establishment for a business dinner and had a reservation which was honored. There is a wide menu selection and the wait staff is patient with regard to deciding just how hot one desires the spicy dishes to be. We chose several and shared them all, accompanied by a couple of beers. The only downside, there was no... More

The food was excellent and the service very good. The meals came out very quickly. When we asked for a dish to be changed slightly they had no issues with changing it.

This place is solidly okay. Some things were great, others fine, but overall okay to good - if I could add a half star I would. The Bangkok rolls were essentially rolled salad with a sweet and mustard dipping sauce - eh. The fried calamari was good and tender but the portion was small. Bizarrely the tuna sashimi was really...

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.
