A group of us met up here for dinner. It was easy to find, great large place. Good service and everyone absolutely loved their food! Slightly pricey for Thai, but well worth it!

Nice location, a little over priced for what you get. The service is a little slow. Food is nice but not outstanding

Great location on the river .. on a nice day .. food is nice enough ., not special, and certainly not spicy ... is there a cooking school attached to this?? Service is dismal .. sitting out on the deck (best spot) you feel abandoned

Good service and great food. This is my third visit and every time food has been good. Wine is a pass and not very expensive. Need an ale on tap. Will visit again.

Description
Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, BangPop is the latest addition to the South Wharf restaurant precinct. Recreating the energy and excitement of Bangkok’s hawker stands, this innovative offering delivers an authentic taste of Thailand.With an emphasis on affordable and casual communal dining, the compact menu constantly acknowledges its street food heritage. Hawker stand staples, such as grilled pork neck and chicken spare ribs, have found their way from the food carts of Thailand to Melbourne’s Docklands and, to ensure absolute authenticity, we are proud to have Yaigum – a Thai stallholder for more than 40 years – will be sharing her Isaan family’s secrets with the kitchen (curry pastes, dipping sauces, marinades and Isaan dishes).Head chef Kam McManamey (previously at Geoff Lindsay’s Elwood restaurant, Dandelion) brings a sense of refinement to the street food offerings, while all the time demonstrating a strong understanding of the importance of flavourful dipping sauces and aromatic condiments. Fun, vibrant and fast-paced – BangPop encapsulates the best bits of Bangkok’s frenetic street scene. Just look at the huge projection at the back of the bar to be transported straight to the heart of the city.
