Decided to drop into Bangkok Cafe on the off chance last Saturday for an early dinner after a busy day and no lunch. The staff were really accommodating and managed to squeeze us into a restaurant that got really busy, really quickly! The food and service were both excellent. We ordered too much, but everything on the menu looked really... More

Been to Bangkok Cafe 5-10 times now and it never disappoints. Extremely tasty Thai food that is well priced with a friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

What a very pleasant surprise the Bangkok Cafe is. The girls who served us were lovely, and dressed in Thai style clothes. We were a party of 6 and we all had different things. Not one person found any problems with the food, and the vast menu means you could visit a few times and have a different taste experience... More

Such a vast menu you could come here multiple times, order something different each time and thoroughly enjoy it every time! 6 people, 4 starters, 3 sides ALL couldn't be faulted.

Visited this restaurant 2 weeks ago with my boyfriend, after reading all the reviews we were looking forward to trying this restaurant. Although my food was nice, it was nothing special especially for how expensive it was. Also I wasn't a fan of the atmosphere, they appeared to be trying to be authentic and modern at the same time but... More

I say for a treat because it 's a bit more expensive than where we usually eat. With starter and main being around £17 plus drinks, we always seem to spend loads here but it is delicious! I love that the dishes are served up with pickles, chutneys and interesting side dishes as well as rice. It's all really fillling... More

My girlfriend and I went here on a Thursday night. Restaurant wasn't too busy, greeted by a welcoming waiter, food was served quit quickly after giving order. Restaurant decor is nice and clean. Overall nice food, good atmosphere, decent price and good quick service.

We arrived in probably the coldest night of the year, so far, but the welcome was really warm. One of the party is a bit of an expert on Thai food, having "holidayed" in Thailand on a few occasions. The rest of us ranged from fairly familiar with the cuisine to rank novices,like me and my partner! Ushered quickly to... More
