“Excellent Thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

The food is excellent. We've been in this place many times and are never disappointed. You will need to book a table though as the place is really tiny (it's hard to get a table for more than 3 or 4). The service is quite good but lacks organisation (you might get your main dish 15 minutes before other people at your table...)

“Charming little corner in Barcelona and OUTSTANDING food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

We had been wanting to dine at Bangkok Cafe for a long time and it is always fully booked. So yesterday Tuesday we booked a table for two. The place was packed - seats 30 at most. So charming and homey. The street/alley of the restaurant seems like a fairy tale. Once inside, we tasted some of the best food we've ever had. Everything was delicious - the steamed dumplings (we chose the shrimps and the pork ones), the sweet-sour chicken, the hot duck, the Pad Thai with shrimps - you name it. The place was full of non-Spanish or Catalan speaking clients which makes us think that locals haven't yet discovered Bangkok Cafe!

We will come back for sure (we even walked home it's so close!)

“Best Thai Restaurant outside of Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Champoo y Nung are amazing. The restaurant is small and cozy with an amazing atmosphere. The food is authentic and made with tons of love. The owners are from Chaing Mai in Thailand and have done everything to bring their culture of food to the people of Barcelona. The Pat Thai is amazing, the Som Tam, as well as soups, Tom Kai Gai is our favorite. Upon entering you are always greeted with a smile and a family style welcome. On numerous occasions, they have even made sticky rice or other special plates when we've called to give notice. My favorite restaurant in Barcelona.

“Great Thai Great Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

This little place blew us away. My wife is Thai and we eat Thai whenever we travel. Seldom do we find a place like Bangkok Cafe. We own a Thai restaurant so we know.

The food is delicious. The price is right. Make sure you have reservations even if you plan to arrive late.

Order the local cava with dinner!

“Great authentic Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Was recommended this place by a friend which oversold the place a bit too much. So my expectations were a bit high.

Regardless I'll give the place a solid 4 stars and I'll be returning next time I'm in Barcelona.
