“The Best Thai Food in South Florida”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

One of our favorite places for years, worthy of driving from anywhere to enjoy another meal with the friendly family run, 20+ yr owners. Unless you arrive extremely early for lunch or very early for dinner, this place has such a loyal following, you will always see a crowd.
Location is a small retail strip, right next to an IHOP.
DON'T allow the location to define the food!
Incredible homemade peanut dressing for salads, tom kha and tom yum soup that makes any drive worth it, every curry dish has been outstanding, the volcano chicken is cooked and seasoned perfectly. We've tried half of their seafood options and were always impressed with each dish.
Not to stop there, they even offer a sushi bar that is always busy too...and their rolls and sashimi have been excellent each time we tried the non-thai options as well.

“The best mom and pop Thai food in town.”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is the best Thai restaurant I have ever visited . You are greeted lovingly by a member of he family and as if you were family, taken to a non pretentious but clean dining room and professionally served by a great team. The food is always fresh and meticulously prepared and it has remained consistently good though my many years of eating here. The Tofu Soup is a must, as are the mini rolls, the house salad with the best peanut dressing anywhere, and you must try the Royal Duck Basil. Everything is cooked to order and you are asked the degree of spice for your dish and offered a spice tray if you need to adjust the flavors, although its hardly needed. The Masaman is also a great choice, or the Padtai or the sweet and sour Red Snapper. Have to go now and make my reservation. Ask for Tan or Joy and they will insure your visit here is memorable. Have a great bite!!

“Off the beaten path place, best Thai food in Miami!”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

I have been dining here with my family since I was first introduced to the place by a Thai friend. The food is always excellent, fresh and delicious, and the portions are very generous. The service is excellent as well. We are warmly greeted by the owner (this is a family business) every time we visit. We have visited several other Thai restaurants. Some have been fancier and pricier, but none come even close to the taste and the quality of the food at Bangkok City.

“The best sushi hands down in the area!”
Reviewed May 19, 2011

I love this place and the lobster roll is out of this world. i like the interior its got a home feel to it. Never too busy. Servers are all sweet and very friendly however it seems like they need a busboy or some other help. Bottom line: You cant go wrong with this place.

“Great Food. Needs remodeling”
Reviewed October 10, 2009

This is a great restaurant for locals. The best food in the area. They have both Thai and Sushi. Friendly and family friendly staff and service. They have beautiful Buddha statues and a calming fish tank. Great sushi too. But it needs remodeling and music that reflects the exotic flair of their food.
