Staff are authentic and very polite. Food is lovely and very chillie hot! I love hot food so it wasn't a problem. They did say if we didn't want it so hot they would adjust it.

Been several times over the past 18 months. Food and service excellent. Very tasty. Recommended. Smallish but that helps with the atmosphere. Need to book though to avoid disappointment.

Six of us went there for their lunch time specials, which were good value for money. We were quite happy with the food and the services. Staff was friendly; we would definitely go back there again.

We have visited Bangkok Lounge many times over the years and always enjoyed it. On this occasion, the staff seemed preoccupied and almost uninterested. ( In the past service was excellent). The Penang curry was well flavoured but some of the duck was tough. A...More
