This is Old East Dallas and downtown's go-to Thai place for decades. Unhurried, calm and not large, it supports readers, students and single diners as well as family gatherings. Tables in a warm brick room.
Full range of noodle and Thai appetizers, ambitious fish and duck meals, well presented and generous portions.
Fresh and authentic. Visitors to Dallas will find a great intro to the East Dallas neighborhood. Inter table conversations encouraged.

Dine in or have it delivered. Everything is great, and they have mastered food delivery. Order is always correct and on time, and the packaging is appropriate for the item ordered. The crispy duck is delicious (but better if you dine in to maximize crispiness)!

Long before Old East Dallas started gentrifying, before Asian fusion cuisine, before internet reviews, Bangkok City was a staple for a working class neighborhood that combined office workers, Viet, Lao and Cambodian refugees, latinos and others. That combined taste, teamed with changing demographics, has sustained an island of calm precise cuisine a good twenty years later. In the age of AirBnB, this is the authentic neighborhood experience we cherish.

Quiet if you want to read, expandable if like us you have grandchildren in tow. Drinks or beer and some corn fritters and spring rolls can be followed by several paths:
Traditional pad thai, noodle dishes of varying heat; rice dishes with beef, chicken or shrimp; vegetarian options; soups and hotpots; and the several "event" meals from roasted duck to a full redfish in spices.

Street parking is usually available without issue. Credit cards accepted. In a town where, frankly, we like our cooks noisy and saucy, Bangkok City provides a smiling professional attention that perhaps makes us, even if it's informal, sit up straight, keep our elbows off the tablecloth and truly enjoy our meal. Be prepared for inter-table conversations, you're among friends!
Most dishes run from $9 to $12 average, nothing is really expensive. Cold beers, lovely teas. To-go service provided as well if you're nearby in the Westin or Marriott. Uber Eats delivery.

We had lunch here today, after 8 years!

The food was still the same tasty food, we had earlier.

The corn patties and Bangkok City Shrimp as appetizer were lovely!

The Massaman curry perfectly complimented the Bangkok City fried rice!

The Pad-Thai and the basil noodles were superb!

The spicy catfish curry had a tangy ginger taste and was awesome!

The service was fast and friendly. The bill was unbelievably wallet friendly!

Will certainly dine here again.

This was my first time to eat Thai food and I though is was good; but my partner-who has eaten Thai for years-really loved this place. I loved that I didn't have to pay to park. The service was good. Nice clean ladies room.
