“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Nothing spectacular as such, but really ok for Cotonou standards. For example very nice springrolls. Steady good quality.

“Good Thai but slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a nice restaurant, elegantly decorated, with good ambiance and food. However, the service can be painfully slow at times. The price is also a bit high but not unusual for an expat restaurant.

“As good as Thai food anywhere else in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Run by a Thai family, Bangkok Terrace is the real deal. It's as good as any Thai food I've gotten in the U.S. or in Europe. (Admittedly I've never been to Thailand.) You can set in a nice outdoor area or inside, in air conditioning. Everything is excellence, but personal favorites are the pad thai and the dish that comes in a pineapple (there's a photo in the menu). It can get kind of pricy since you order rice separately too, but it's worth the splurge. For reference, pad thai is around 4000cfa, most main dishes are around 5000cfa (with an additional 1500cfa for rice), etc. My only complaint is the wait time. It can take up to an hour to get your food. But that's pretty standard anywhere in Cotonou.

“Consistently good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

Some of the best thai curries outside Thailand; food is consistently good-be it the signature thai dishes or the soups & starters; service is quick & attentive with the affable owners making sure everyone is comfy;
There's a choice of outdoor seating-nice & cheerful or an airconditioned indoors; in a city with few good eating out options, Bangkok Terrasse shines bright!
