I've been visiting Bangkok West for almost 20 years now. Still a beautiful ambiance and despite of change of ownership, still quality food. Elegant setting, gentle music and lovely staff.

As frequent travellers to Thailand we were very impressed with the authentic tastes of this restaurant. Staff are extremely friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. Dinner consisted of 5-7 dishes which were all fresh and very tasty and the desserts as well. Prices are mid range. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

I was desperate for a curry, and chose this place based upon its Zagat recommendation. The food was fine, hit the spot, but was very basic. The interior was fine also. Nothing spectacular but clean and pleasant. I enjoyed the food, but overall it was v dry average and no different to most other thai restaurants. Maybe that is a... More

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.

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.
