We go to Bangkok Belly in Norwood Park once or twice a month. Never been disappointed. Their wide variety of sushi is always fresh and tasty. Shrimp shumai is always a winner, as are all of the fried rice dishes. Had the new spicy deep...fried catfish. Excellent. Can't wait to have it again. Nan (the owner) suggested calling ahead to make sure it's available as she won't offer it if she isn't happy with the quality of the catfish. Staff is welcoming and professional. AND, it's BYOB. Always a wonderful experience at a bargain price.More

Solid food with authentic taste. They just had a new sushi chef that can work magic on the rolls and nigiri. The staffs are friendly and the owners are there to give us recommendations on food.

Not sure why I keep coming here. It's really close to home but my advice, go into Park Ridge or Edgebrook. Plum sauce was great and I didn't get served rice noodle pudding pretending to be Beef Pad Thai, this time. Miso soup wasn't even...room temperature, 72 degrees. Can't rate customer service because server was in the back watching TV. The fresh spring rolls were hard and bland. The rice paper wrapper broke into pieces it was so dry. The, inexplicably tough, beef pad thai had too much fish sauce and smelled like a rotten fish tank. Raw pork hide is more tender. I have never received a good meal from them.More

Bangkok Belly, on Northwest Highway just past Raven, is a hidden gem. It's not big or fancy, but the food is excellent, portions are large, prices are modest, and the service is most welcoming. Being a bottle (or two) of wine or beer and some...good friends and enjoy Nan's gracious hospitality.More

We have passed Bangkok Belly a number of times and finally decided to stop for lunch. It is located in the area of Chicago known as Norwood Park, about a block from the Norwood Park Metra Station. It is a small restaurant and it is...B.Y.O.B. Our server, Jaeb, was pleasant and efficient. We ordered one of their lunch specials for $7.00 which included a bowl of miso soup, two crab Rangoon and chicken fried rice. We also ordered a spider sushi roll. The food was very good. The crab Rangoon were completely filled with a tasty filling and looked to be in the shape of a small swan. There was more than enough fried rice and we could not finish it all. The chicken was tasty and tender. The spider roll was very good. Good food for a reasonable price in a nice neighborhood location.More

Very greasy and subpar asian food. There are much better options less than 2 Liya miles away in Edison Park

My grand-daughters favorite neighborhood restaurant and I like it too. Small restaurant with a limited menu. Very tasty Thai food in smaller portions. Fruit smoothies. Very casual with a "neighborhood" feel.

You can do much better for Asian carryout, even in Norwood park. The dishes seemed to be toned down for non-asian palates, and thus lost the melding of flavors that usually provides the essence of Asian food.

Bangkok Belly is a welcome addition to the resurgent Northwest Highway corridor in Norwood Park. Located in what many will recall as the (gone but not forgotten) Phil's Pizza site, this small but pleasant enterprise offers a wide variety of excellent and inexpensive Thai dishes,...and an impressive array of sushi as well. It's also BYOB. Carry-outs are ready in a matter of minutes. Not to be missed.More
