We were in the area, yelp had a few very high ratings for this place, we decided to try it out.
Food: We ordered wonton soup, seafood soup, dumplings and twin action. The wonton soup was very tasteless, the vegetables in the soup were completely uncooked (raw) and the dumplings were tasteless. The seafood soup was spicy, had 2 scallops and 2 shrimps with lots of uncooked mushrooms. The dumplings were quite tasty and were probably completely home made. The twin action again contained uncooked veggies but the curry was ok overall.

Service: The owner was the only one person taking orders and serving about 10 tables. We got water in about 15 minutes, food in about 45, and decided to pay directly at the counter (rather than wait another 20 to get the person's attention). I had to wait for about 10 mins to get his attention for getting hot sauce. Well, I paid 10% tip because I was quite unhappy with the poor service and pointed out the same when he asked why.

At that point, the owner said: "Well you are not American, so you don't give good tip." Another person was signing the check at the counter, he pointed to him and said, "Thank you sir, you seem like American citizen".

We walked out at that, sure will not go back.

This place is always sure to please your pallet. I've never had a bad meal here. The seating is very small, so this place cannot accomodate a large group, but its very nice for an intimate meal with your loved one, or a quiet place for girls night out. The Thai Tea is amazing!! and the pad thai is the best in town :)

The best Thai food in New Hampshire; we have never had a bad meal here!!

We have been frequenting Bangkok Café for several years. Each time we are in the North Conway area we make sure that a stop for lunch at the Bangkok Café is scheduled. The owner is very nice and has a great sense of humor. On top of that his food is amazing! The Drunken Noodles are wonderful, spicy and the portion size is enormous! Two of our favorite dishes are the Orange Chicken and the Fried Dumplings. They are so incredibly fresh and tasty. The orange Chicken is a very lightly pan fried chicken in a very nice and light orange sauce, not the expected heavy sticky sauce that many places use.

If you enjoy Thai food or just something a little different, you need to stop into the Bangkok Café. Don’t miss it when you walk down the street, as it is small and unassuming. You can find it directly across the street from the Snowy Owl Inn and/or 1 block up from Zeb’s.

Nothing especially great. But pretty decent.
Drunken noodle was a bit wet, not enough basil.
Red curry had right taste, but a little thin or watered down.
WIll note that i dod forget to ask for extra spicy, but he didnt ask either...

Fried rice was good.

Yes to no crowds, got in right after leaving storyland at closing time.

This is a small unpretentious restaurant right in the middle of the town with delicious Thai food. Try the drunken noodles as well as the dumplings. You won't be disappointed. We also had some vegetarian dishes that were delicious.
