This is a popular spot for lunch and dinner. The food is tasty, lunch portions smaller and cheaper, and service is fast, sometimes more focused on speed than customer attention.

Very nice employees. Great portion sizes and prices. Comfortable atmosphere and seating. Place setting at each seat then your entree is served on another dish, therefore you're not eating directly from the serving plate. Makes it great for sharing and 'cleaner' for taking home the left-overs.

On a Tuesday night its not crowded so its easy in and out. Crispy Duck can be ordered mild or spicy. I got mild and it was just right. Rice comes on the side. Looks average on the outside but somewhat upscale on the inside. Great waitstaff keeping an eye on what you need.

I had the Spicy Mock Duck-absolutely delicious! The best seitan I have ever eaten. I highly recommend any Vegan to give it a try. All 3 non-Vegans that tasted it raved about how delicious it was as well! Great ambiance and the Hibiscitini was great as well. 🌟🌟🌟🌟✨

The food at Bangkok 54 is very good - but it's the very cool, very interesting decor and interior design that keeps us coming back. The servers stay at the restaurant for a long time - many have been working there for years. Everything I've eaten has been tasty and every guest I've brought to Bangkok 54 has been impressed...

I was at the restaurant with my family. The TV was on and there was a hunting show with a lot of killings and animals being slaughtered. We asked the hostess to change to another channel and she said she would but never did. Our waiter was really good and the food was delicious but the carcasses on TV was... More

This place is a block from The Salsa Room , so a nice place for a bite to eat before dancing. I had a tasty Cosmopolitan at the bar while my friend had spring rolls in peanut sauce. I like the quiet atmosphere.

I was here years back and had it in mind as go-to for Thai food when in DC area. It was as good as I remember. We ordered pad Thai with tofu, pad see ew with shrimps, curry duck, fried rice and the crispy pork with basil. For dessert, we had the sticky rice with mango. The mango wasn't as... More

I was really surprised by this restaurant. Walking to it, it was unimpressive from the outside. The restaurant is co-located with its small Thai store, and Thai fast food area. Arriving from the north end of the building, you pass both, and they have their own entrance. The sign over the restaurant door was not working, so I was somewhat... More
