Came here for dinner last week. Quite busy but the service was well able to cope.
The food is excellent and the portion sizes are huge. Prices are reasonable.
Only problem-my wife asked for a small (125ml) glass of wine. She was refused and even after explaining that she was driving the refusals became more abrupt. She had to make do with tap water.

We love thai food and this is our favourite place to eat in Penrith. The staff are very helpful and polite and its obvious they take great pride, in not only the service,but the fiod they provide. It is of a quality you would expect in a major city and there is certainly nothing to equal it in the local area. The pad thai noodles is one of the best we have ever tasted and the curries are made to a standard rarely found, spicy with a creamy coconut sauce. The restauarant is spacious, warm and invititing. It has been busy on the night we visited, so booking in advance is recomended. They have an extencive drinks menu but we prefare to go with the full thai experience opt for traditional thai lagers to accompany our meals. We are looking forward to our next visit to penrith and Bankok bisro.

I am a thai person living in the uk and visited the Bangkok bistro with my partner and daughter. The food here is very authentic which comes as a nice suprise. This might be the best thai restaurant I have found in the Uk. During our 3 days in Penrith,we went there twice. The owners and staff are very friendly and will cook meals just as you like them.

In Penrith for weekend. Spent almost an hour trying to find somewhere decent to eat on a Saturday night. Stumbled upon Bankok Bistro by chance. It was almost fully occupied by one big party! Nevertheless, they found us a relatively quiet corner. Food was tasty. House wine decent and staff welcoming. Seemed to be one of the better options in Penrith. Recommend
