“Some spice in the cooking oil makes it hard to breathe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Maybe it was chili in the cooking oil but it was hard to take a full breath while we sat in the restaurant. Also, the place is filthy and the service is super slow. The food tasted pretty fresh and was nicely flavorful and spicy. I especially liked the mango curry and the scallion pancakes.

They really need to clean and update the interior. And the prices are ok but not great.

“Excellent Thai option in Cleveland Circle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

I've been to the restaurant in Cleveland Circle, which is a great bargain. The menu includes a wide variety of options, with terrific lunch specials. The portions are large, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is consistently good. I particularly recommend some of the traditional noodle dishes.

“What a gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2009

Considering it's prime location near Boston Common, Bangkok Bistro is surprisingly reasonable. Great curry dishes at a reasonable price. Most meals were in the $10-$15 (less than half the price of other restaurants on the same block) and were generous in size.

“Good for takeout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2009

I thought this place was great for takeout, thought it was dingy and dark on the inside, so not sure if I would have sitdown meal there. The staff was friendly, big portions of food, reasonably priced. I will definitely eat here again!
