“Good affordable Thai in new location”
Review of Bangkok 9

Bangkok 9
Ranked #65 of 127 Restaurants in Sonoma
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We have been regulars at this restaurant, which used to be on Broadway as "599 Thai," since moving to Sonoma two years ago. We go back for the well prepared, tasty selections and the affordable prices. They have been in their new locale (with new name) for a couple months now and seem to have all the bugs worked out. The new locale is a bit more polished than the former site on Broadway. Everything else is the same. Highly recommended for an inexpensive ethnic dining experience in Sonoma.

Formerly 599 Thai, the place just opened. New landlords at the old location necessitated the move.
The new location is much nicer -- bigger kitchen, more room, more tables, and an inviting, softer, darker interior.
It seems that all the old favorite dishes made the transition. And it remains our favorite Thai place in the county.
Great noodle dishes and curries.
A new appetizer is the Bangkok roll -- crispy fried roll with taro root (don't know what that is, really, but the rolls were good) served with lettuce, carrot, onion, whole cashews, glass noodles, and a dipping sauce. Yummy.
Spring rolls are as good as ever.
The sweet and sour is the best -- lots of fresh veggies and meat (or tofu) of choice in a broth. This is what I love about the sweet and sour is that it's not that clingy, sweet, orange goo that you so often find -- this is more of a broth.
Soups are good, especially the shrimp wonton.
Love the salads -- green papaya especially -- and the peanut sauce dressing.
Prices are reasonable.

We were there on their first Saturday night, and the place was packed. So, the place got rather noisy. Also, the service was a bit spotty. For a party of seven, some dishes came quickly and other diners had to wait. I hope this will be rectified. Perhaps the opening was a bit overwhelming. Another factor might be the lively take-out business they do.

Regardless of that, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and knowledgeable about the menu. They make you feel welcome. Water is refilled, dirty dishes removed promptly.

We're very glad that we didn't lose this little gem of a Thai restaurant. Looking forward to many more delicious meals here.
