I never get tired of this place! It has an awesome coconut chicken & pumpkin curry that is very filling! I almost always order that along with a Thai iced tea and fresh rolls! If you like Thai, this place has delicious food, great prices, and great portions for the price! Park on the street or the lot behind Dunkin... More

I love coming to Bangkok Balcony and have been for years. You can find the usual suspects like Pad Thai here, but the menu is full of exciting dishes waiting to be explored. Service is always very attentive and prompt. Plus there's a great view on the bustling Forbes street downstairs!

Food and service is very good, the atmosphere is warm though decor is a little tattered and could use a face lift.

We went to this restaurant on a Friday night. We had reservations, and we were glad we did. You do have to climb up some steep stairs to get to the restaurant, but there are handrails on either side to help you! The atmosphere is pleasant although a little noisy. This might have been due to the very large group... More

This was our first visit to the Squirrel Hill neighborhood and we were very impressed with the vibrant feel to the area. We selected the Bangkok Balcony based on several favorable reviews and they were spot on. I should mention the restaurant is located on the second floor and the staircase is a bit steep. If a window table is... More

This is my favorite of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood Thai restaurants. The green curry is excellent. Their dining room has a nice view of Forbes Ave and is less crowded than Silk Elephant, there are always seats. Take out is quick and easy

We dashed upstairs to this Thai restaurant just 15 minutes before they were to close for the night, and were concerned they would either turn us away or begrudgingly allow us to stay. Instead we were greeted with smiles and courtesy, and made to feel we could eat and drink our wine in a relaxed pace. We had an appetizer... More

I ordered the tofu in red curry. It came with a small side of salad & fried roll. The tofu was cut in half-inch cubes and the sliced bamboo shoots with it looked like they came out of a can. I had been here twice for dinner before and I'd rate those visits a 4. Service was very good, though.
