My wife is from Thailand and she approves of this restaurant, need I say more. It is probably more like a 4.5 stars (what is 5 star?) - but given the rating system of Trip Advisor- where an average good is a 4 - I have to give this a 5. I also think it is better than most non-New... More

I love Thai food and when a friend and I decided to eat dinner at Little Bangkok recently, I looked forward to satisfying my green curry craving. Unfortunately, there were only two green curry options on the menu – one with vegetables and one with fried rice. I chose the one with vegetables. The menu described the dish as eggplant,... More

This location is very convenient for a quick meal. However, the customer service is very poor. Ordered a curry which came basically w/out curry sauce. While most THAI places serve a "curry" in a cream curry base this restaurant offers very little sauce w/ their vegetables and meets. Upon ordering extra sauce, I am told the charge will be $...

This restaurant faces the parking lot in the back of the strip mall where it is located. Service is very attentive. The décor is nondescript. Unfortunately, the food was average and not particularly flavorful.Tom yum soup was just OK, and the 3 dishes were had were skimpy on the meat and tofu. The basil eggplant had very little tofu, as...

Little Bangkok has become our favorite go-to place for Thai food. The food is consistently good from one visit to the next, although sometimes you get a little more spicy heat than you ask for. The Pattani is my favorite dish. The mound of vegetables are steamed perfectly and you can add shrimp or chicken if you want for a... More

Have been here for lunch and dinner on three occasions. It is one of the best Thai restaurants we've been to. Don't be fooled by size or the fact it is tucked away off Cascade Ave.

Best Thai food in the greater Grand Rapids area. Period. Consistent every time, and they will customize the spice level to your preference. The chicken pad Thai, pad Austin, and shrimp fresh rolls are my personal favorites.

We have always enjoyed this restaurant. The food is good and the heat level is accurate. When they say "hot" they mean it. So if you cannot tolerate spicy then stick to mild heat level. Whether you order a rice or noodle dish it will be good and full of Thai flavors. This restaurant in Forest Hills is always busy... More

Of all the Thai restaurants in Grand Rapids, this is about the only one where you can also get a beer. We went here on a Saturday night and were pleased to see a busy place, but not so busy that we weren't seated right away. I had curry pad Thai, my daughter had drunken noodles, and my wife had...

I think this is one of the best restaurants around. I ordered green curry kow pad on fire and it just blowed my mind. Couldn't handle so much of spice. I love spicy food and this took me to next level!!!
