Been eating here since around 1997, and never disappointed with any of the entrees. Choose your noodles, meat, veggies, you can't go wrong.

My granddaughter loves this place. My first time here. Comfortable, warm and relaxed atmosphere. Granddaughter has not tried sushi. Our server was very nice and helpful in trying to find a sushi she would like. Dynamite roll was very good. Sad to say she didn't like it. She had crispy Pad Thai, I had regular. Both were the best I'd... More

He knows the menu and all the sushi, and how to describe the flavors of each dish. Hes good!!! Anyway I would recommend this place to anyone who likes... More

Bangkok Bistro is now closed. In its place is a Mexican restaurant, which might be better than the Thai one. We've eaten there once, and the chicken soup was excellent -- a bowl full of soup and big chunks of chicken. The rest of the meal was also pretty good.

We have visited many times. The crispy pad thai is unique. We've never seen this dish at any other Thai restaurant. Another exceptional item is their crab Rangoon.

With the advent of more Thai restaurants in Cincy, Bangkok Bistro just hasn't kept up with the competition or maybe it has declined a little over the years. The food is still good and the ambience is still pleasant and they have great service, but it's no longer the best Thai place in Cincy.

Ignore the review below mine claiming there was "trash" in the food - the "problem" the crabby pants is complaining about isn't worth skipping the restaurant over -but I have to say, the spring rolls were the worst part of the meal - even without a piece of string. My friend loved his Crab Rangoon. I had Thai Spicy Ginger... More

When my daughter bit into her spring roll appetizer, she found a six+ inch piece of string stuck between her front teeth. When I brought this to the manager's attention, I was told that cabbage arrives bundled in string at the restaurant and the string should have been removed before the cabbage was used for cooking (and I was hoping...

If you like Pad Thai...the Crispy Pad Thai is hands down the best I've put in my mouth. They have a great sushi bar and Japanese beers too.

I love Mai Thai in Florence, KY, but for Thai food in Cincinnati? Bangkok Bistro is my favorite. The food is consistently good, but if you are not sure about the spice heat level, go lower than you think. Once, I ordered a 7 and my mouth was on fire! I was sucking on a lime trying to kill the...
