We walked in without a booking and the staff got us a table. Friendly staff. Food was tasty - large portions. Presented in a modern way on plastic plates. Good choice of wine. Not super stylish but a good place for dinner.

Disappointing food on this occasion, a very poor thai green curry with a layer of grease floating on the top and about 5 pieces of chicken in there, and no more.. The sauce was still as tasty though, but my tempura veg was cold and soggy and extremely battered making it cold and greasy.. Just a slip in standard from... More

This restaurant was a massive disappointment when we visited on Saturday evening. Our starters of beef salad and chicken satay lacked flavour and seasoning and were just bland. When the waitress cleared our plates and enquired how our food was we said how average it was, but this produced no response or concern... why ask if you aren't interested? Our... More

Have eaten here a couple of times now and food is always delicious! Take out is also great with the food always being fresh and hot.

I recently visited this venue, with a friend who'd recommended the food. I ordered a Pad Thai which was authentic but not to my taste! I found the drinks and food prices generally quite over priced. Service was very attentive and the venue is very lovely inside!

Visited there last night after 2.5wks in Thailand (as if we didn't eat enough there) with my partner and friends, nice atmosphere and very busy. The table was booked online for 6:30pm and we were promptly shown our table, drinks ordered (no Chang only singha) and proceeded to peruse the menu. Good choice but not too much as I find... More

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
