First off, if you use the bathroom there isn't any hot water onky cold. It is important to use warm water to kill germs in additiin to washing with soap. In their bathroom you can see the evidence of unclean hand by the light switch which is black on a l7ght colored wall. Next I asked for mild spice and... More

The interior of this place needs help-- pretty run down but I always just get take out so I don't really care. I've been getting take-out from this place for 15-20 yrs. Prices are good, food is very good. I highly recommend the Vegetable Curry (or add Shrimp), or the Pad Thai. Those are my favorites but lots of other... More

We've been enjoying the carry-out for years but stopped for dine-in and were amazed at the food quality and fantastic service in the restaurant's recently updated dining room. We will definitely return for this dine-in experience.

Bangkok Express on Southfield Road is hands down my favorite Thai Restaurant in Metro Detroit. Their pineapple fried rice and shrimp pad Thai are amazing. Highly recommend for people who enjoy authentic Thai food. Location is small but cozy and located in a strip mall so it is easy to miss. Glad I found this gem.

This restaurant has posted that it closes at 9 pm during the week. My wife and I arrived there at 8:30 and were informed the restaurant was closed and would allow us to order "take out". It appeared to have another round of ownership or management. Gone is the Viet General's picture and only a couple of items we found... More

The efficient and kind waitstaff will have your food ready for you in no time, whether you eat in or order take out. The place is a bit shabby, but clean, and the food is excellent.If they offered brown rice, it would be even better. Good place to eat if you're in a hurry, but still want to eat healthy,... More

The first time I went here, I ordered the Pad Ped. It was pretty good but nothing to rave about. The second time, I ordered the Kow Pad fried rice with scallops and it was the best I ever had. I've eaten fried rice at several Thai places and usually the rice is too sticky or dry. This fried rice... More
