On business and popped into the Bangkok Bistro - warm welcome by the manager. Excellent food with a large selection from their menu. Would recommend - situated in central Penrith.

Tasty authentic Thai food. Freshly cooked, good quality ingredients and well spiced. Very good value for money. Friendly attentive service. Nice ambience and setting. Popped in on a Thursday tea time around 7pm and was surprised that it was empty, with the exception of one customer who was finishing as I arrived.

We visited Bangkok bistro on Friday evening. The manager was incredibly welcoming and nothing was too much trouble all evening. He made sure everyone in our party was catered for and was able to make recommendations about his menu! The food was high quality, reasonably priced and delicious! All of the dishes were made with fresh ingredients, and were adapted... More

We were on our summer holidays and found this little place, very impressed with the quality of food on offer and the food was excellent and as authentic as my local- no surprise to find out both have Thai chefs. Great cuisine, great service, you won't be disappointed.
