Came here by accident. Was looking for another Thai restaurant that will remain nameless ;-) The service was a bit slow but there was only one woman waiting on all the tables on her own.

But other than that the food was good. We had the #10, #46, and #2... you will have to check it out to see what we ate.

The food was good and the price was right. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Firstly, just to confirm this review is of Bangkok House Thai Cuisine restaurant at 20 Stone Pine Road, in Half Moon Bay.

After a bad experience at a Chinese restaurant in San Francisco, we found this wonderful restaurant thanks to a car GPS which lists restaurants of various types (although no reviews).

The restaurant appears to be in a residential neighbourhood in Half Moon Bay area which we stumbled across by chance one night on a San Fran vacation. From the outside the place looks very up market and open, with lots of plants and water features. There were also a couple of cats waiting outside. It was not clear whether they belonged to owners of the restaurant of were just admirers of the odd scrap of food, but nonetheless a good sign.

We ordered a mixture of dishes suitable for 2 adults and a couple of young children. The staff were very friendly and helped us choose dishes which our kids ended up eating (rare). The menu is well organized according to food type, and the prices seem really good compared with other Thai restaurants we'd been to.

The food ordered included: Pad Thai Noodles, Red Curry Beef, Barbeque Chicken and Honey Roasted Boneless Duck, with Jasmine Rice. All dishes were extremly well prepared and unbelievably aroumatic. The beef was incredibly tender and the portion sizes were very generous, meaning we all ate well without spending a fortune.

The staff didn't seem perterbed that we entered the restaurant late in the evening, just before another larger group left (being the last remaining clients at that point). The service was prompt, friendly and helpful, and the owners and waiting staff were conversational and wanted to offer local advice, as well as being interested in where we come from.

There is a note on the admin desk that made us a little cautious. This stated that excessive food landing on the floor as a result of kids might attract a 15% surcharge. Thankfully our kids were extremely well behaved, although I cannot imagine this restaurant ever excercising this penalty on anyone other than the most mindless customer.

I stupidly normally give tips for only standard service, which seems to be the norm. In the case of this restaurant, even if I was the world's worst tipper (short of never tipping), I'd have left a gratuity at this wonderful restaurant. Needless to say we expressed our pleasure with a healthy gratuity here, and if we ever return to the Bay Area and we're within an hour of this restaurant, we'll be booking a table.

Most sincerely recommended.
