Before the performance of the Paris Combo, at the Berklee Performance Center, friends and I dined at the Bangkok City
restaurant. A nice looking young servers who were efficient. Several of us ordered
various servings of Duck cooked different ways. All were delicious. We shared some appetizers,
grilled chicken , dumplings, brown rice. It was welcoming to see a good wine list. I had a few glasses of a French Pinot Noir that satisfied me

I stopped here on a Friday evening after checking into my hotel nearby. Conveniently located near Mass. Ave. in the Fenway neighborhood, this restaurant was a quick walk from the hotel, and was quite crowded for as late in the evening as we arrived, but the food was quite mediocre. The rice had dried out, and the curry sauce was a bit oily for my tastes. For as much good ethnic fare as Boston has to offer, I'd look elsewhere.

This is the 2nd time that we have been to this restaurant.
What is immediately noticeable is the HONEST friendliness of the staff,
including a woman behind the counter that I assume is the owner.

The waiter, named Mac, had to be one of the restaurant's most popular waitstaff
He was an absolute delight, with his recommendations, explanations etc.
He must have come by 5 or 6 times during the meal to refill water glasses, etc.
With his charm, knowledge, mannerisms, and eloquent speaking, I would have
guessed him to be a university professor rather than a waitstaff person.
You will love this guy !!!

The food is expertly prepared and uses fresh ingredients.
Nothing tasted "off" from what one mentally imagined that it WOULD taste like.
My dish was the Seafood Pik Pow. "Just like mother used to make" , so to speak..
My son got his favorite there again...lemon chicken.
Nicely done with moist chicken, and just the right flavor.
He also remarked on how good this dish was this 2nd time ordering it.

The dumpling appetizers were quite good, and a take-off, if you will, of the Chinese SiuMai.
Could have been "just a bit" bigger, but...that is the only thing that could be improved on.

We had the Mango/Sweet rice dessert, and would say that it was "good to the last drop" !!!
FRESH cut mango slices/chunks without any hint of being old, etc. It was perfect in its texture
and taste, with the sweet rice being equally tasty and sweet.
None of the sweetness was overpowering or artificial tasting.
It was EXACTLY what one would call perfect on the sweetness/desirability scale.

People were thanked by other workers there (that did not serve that particular party), for coming in.

It was a pleasure to see people actually being thanked by multiple people for coming in to eat.

I have to say that I usually don't tip "to the max" (close though), but...tipped "to the max" here for
the great service and perfectly prepared food.
I filed it under "Money Well Spent".

In closing, I just cannot see how anyone could be disappointed with this restaurant.
It certainly was MY pleasure.

We will be back there shortly.

The food here is amazing! We decided to walk over here on a Saturday evening after shopping on Newbury Street after reading yelp reviews. For four people we ordered four entrees and two sides of rice including the yellow curry (the best I've ever had.... ever), the garlic chicken, pad see ew noodles with chicken, and a shrimp entree but I can't remember what exactly it was. Anyways, we almost licked the plate clean because it was that good! The restaurant has traditional Thai ambience. Our four entrees and two sides of rice set us back maybe $60 with tip. Completely worth it.

My wife and I spent a week in a nearby apartment. The restaurant was recommended as a great Thai restauant. In fact, the restuarant posts some positive food reviews, including a past 'Best of Boston' award in the window. My wife chose a standard Pad Thai dish with beef. The beef was tough and chewy. The underlying flavors of the dish were good. My chicen curry dish was above average, with just enough heat to make this interesting.

Our waiter was prompt and courteous, but we did arrive just before the main dining crowd on a Friday evening. Once the restaurant filled with diners, the staff seemed a little stretched to provide prompt service. We had to 'flag' our waiter to get our check.

Would I eat here again? Yes,, but I might try some other Thai offerings first before returning. In other words, the experience met,, but did not exceed my expectations.
