We've been eating at Bangkok Oriental for many years. Hidden in a strip mall that has seen better times, this restuurant is well-maintained in terms of its comfort and appearance inside. However, it is the food that will get you hooked. I think their Chili Basil Chicken is outstanding. Earthy aromas, gorgeous to look at and just enough spice, this dish will scream authentic to those who love Thai. We've tried to con owner out of the recipe but he just won't give it up! We also love their Panang curry - really excellent. I'm especially grateful that it isn't the gloppy overly thick curries I've tried in other local Thai restuarants. Superb. You can, of course, try it with your preferred protein choice or just on vegetables. Don't overlook the soups, appetizers, and desserts. Can't tell you how much I like the Tom Yum in the winter (or anytime)! Candy apps are nice. And the mango and sticky rice is perfect in season. Don't forget to try their Mai Tai (it is one of the best I've had). Did I mention that you can have a really high quality meal that includes drinks, appetizers, main course, and dessert for less than anywhere in my town of Annapolis. Yep, definitely worth a trip to Pasadena.
