The Bangkok House looks nothing special from outside in a nondescript terrace of commercial buildings. However, its interior decor is unmistakably Thai, with abundant hard wood panelling and the characteristic vaulted ceiling.

The waiting staff were friendly and efficient. The menu offered the usual dishes and it was good to see a page dedicated to vegetarian dishes.

Service was about right - not so fast that you doubt it was cooked freshly but not so slow that it grated.

Presentation and taste were fine and lived up to my expectations without wowing me.

Dining in a group, with the mixed starter platter and a few drinks each, our bill worked out at £25 each.

I used to love this place some years back but it seems to have gone downhill. We visited mid week in the evening to find it deserted so we were able to appreciate the lovely Thai decor. That was the good bit. The toilets were grubby and generally poorly maintained, the food was good enough but a bit on the pricey side for what we got. The starters were just bog standard with the mains a bit better. Why we won't be going back was because of the poor attitude of the manager, starting with a surly greeting. My husband ordered a Chang beer as a treat and thought the first glass was a bit bland. When he ordered a second glass the waitress brought over an opened bottle of a different beer and stated to pour it. My husband asked her to stop as he was not keen on that brand and the manager walked by and said ' next time'. Trust me there will not be a next time.

This restaurant has been my all time favourite place to eat in Oxford since I was 18 (am now 37!) The staff are always friendly and efficient. The food is always good without exception and it is very reasonably priced for what you get. It is so reliable!
Go try!

A large and cosy Asian restaurant. They serve mainly Thai food, but have several Chinese dishes. Good food and warm atmosphere.

Having eaten here a number of times over the years I can say that the quality of the food is consistently excellent. It easily matches meals in Thailand. If a dish is not on the menu - ask them and they'll do their best to accommodate you.

The location is great as well - very central to Oxford and the building and decor are Thai style as well - which is a welcome change from the standard 'cube' !

Price-wise it's not the cheapest place, but nor is it hugely expensive. Budget for about £25 / head for a three course set menu with a few drinks.

It's very popular at weekends though - so you'll need to book well in advance.
