This place is a real find; not for the decor but for the food. The cook used to cook for Thai royalty and has not lost her touch. it is simply the best Pad Thai and Panang I have ever had across many Thai restaurants.

Take you taste buds and cash and enjoy...on the drive home or to the hotel you will be saying, "wow that WAS great."

I live in the area and eat here often. The little restaurant is run by a husband and wife with no other staff, and its not unusual to wait 30 or more for your food. This is not the place you go when you are in a hurry, or looking for any atmosphere. This is where you go to enjoy the best Thai food in the Walla Walla area. The peanut sauce and curries are exceptional. Try the squash curry. It's extraordinary. They have takeout, too, but if they are busy, they will turn away your order. Really, it's kind of an off-beat place, but worth it, and it's kind of refreshing to go somewhere that they are not just cranking out food the the fastest way possible. Be patient, and enjoy the food.

The whole family went for a birthday event including elderly parents. Word on the street in this small town has always been that the food is good and the service is lousy at Bangkok 103. But we like Thai food, and we tend to be long-suffering folk when the service droops a little. So we had gone a couple of times.

On our last visit--and what will remain our last visit--we ordered everything mild. The food was extremely salty. And one of the vegetable dishes was fiery-spicy, too hot even for the most cast-iron stomachs among us. We asked that the server take it back and bring us a fresh dish, made at the mild level. The dish was taken (with a dour attitude), but was shortly returned to our table ... exactly as hot as it had been before, same food. "We're not going to make a new dish," we were told. In other words: Just eat it.

There is no excuse. We have not returned.

We've spent a year traveling in Thailand, and have eaten at many Thai restaurants in the US. The food at Bangkok 103 is some of the best we've had. Rudy, the cook, is Thai and used to cook for royalty in Thailand. She makes everything from scratch and uses different pans when she cooks vegetarian food. She also doesn't use fish sauce in vegetarian food.

The atmosphere and the service could be better, but the food is great!
