“Terrific Thai”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Visited on during C2C trip, I love Thai food and Bangkok Bistro did not disappoint. I tried a stir fry rather than the usual curry and it was excellent, very spicy but just how I like it. All in all I thought it was good value and I would definitely visit again.

“Fabulous takeway food, tasty and well cooked”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

I regularly visit this place to eat in and always have a great meal. Being veggie there are always lots of veggies choices and the service is always excellent, with Nam being efficient and friendly. I ordered a takeaway meal for 6 over the weekend for friends staying with me. They were very impressed with the food, tasty, well cooked and good sized portions. The food was ready and waiting on my arrival. I will be back.

We visited on a Thursday night and we're well looked after. The service was great and the food excellent. All the ingredients were really fresh and tasty.

“Very Disappointing ”
Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Oh dear.....Been here a couple of times before and enjoyed it, but as we haven't been for a while I thought I better check It out on Trip Adviser first, but all seemed well. Thought this would be an ideal venue for a nice meal with my sister and husband who were visiting us from down south. I was very wrong! Although, (I would imagine in response to a previous comment on trip adviser), they had installed an extra heater, I certainly didn't need it as I became increasingly hot under the collar. After an hour and 10 minutes of waiting for our first course, I raised the issue with our very apologetic waitress. It still took another 20minutes to arrive. Our main course arrived 30 after that. In the meanwhile takeaway orders were being taken and collected. The first course was poor, some of the contents were as cold as the plates. The main course was better but still nothing to write home about.
We were offered and accepted a round of drinks being knocked off the bill. Little compensation for a ruined evening!
I do hope for their sakes that this is a one off. You won't be surprised to learn however we will not be returning.
