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

Visited here with a last minute booking after hearing great things. Went for the diced chicken lettuce wraps which were lovely to start with which was lovely. Followed by the sea bass with sticky rice, with a Singha beer of course. Food arrived within 5 minutes of ordering which was great. Service was also very good. Would definitely recommend.

This was our 2nd visit to Cardiff and based on other reviews, we popped into the restaurant expecting great food. Unfortunately, the experience wasn't great. We ordered a starter of mushroom toasties and a smoked meat dish which was revolting. The staff very kindly exchanged this for ribs which were lovely. Next, thai green curry and red curry with duck... More

Blink and you could miss it, the Bangkok Café restaurant does little to bring attention to itself, sandwiched between a pastry take-away and a barber shop. But having found the restaurant it is like a brilliant diamond in a sea of glass and paste fakes. The reception is warm and friendly with smiling staff eager to please the customer. The... More

The little restaurant is warm and inviting and the service is very good. The food however, wasn't that wonderful. That said, the two starters we ordered were truly scrumptious, especially the coconut-based soup. Pretty much the best I've ever tasted. However, the Phad Thai main course wasn't great. The whole dish was strangely pink, and the noodles were a bit... More

Having eaten in many Thai restaurants over the years, I can honestly say I've never seen such an original and varied menu. If you're looking for a truly different choice of Thai food then this is the place for you. Service was very good and prices, although slightly on the expensive side, are reasonable for the varied choice.

For Thai food this place is the best in Cardiff! Amazing Thai Green Curry- so delicious! Keep going back time and time again. Lovely decor and nice vibe inside. Can't wait to go back! Just one thing.. I wish they served something like a prawn cracker to dip in and soak up their delicious source!
