“One of our favourites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We really enjoy the whole Bangkok Lounge experience - from the warm welcome to the tasty food. The restaurant is clean and the staff are extremely polite and welcoming. Personal touches such as wine recommendations and taking the time to engage with customers does not go unnoticed. We have eaten here 3 times and will definitely come back. The food is consistently good and presented beautifully. My only criticism is that once you sign up for their email alerts they send you some good offers - money off / discount. You must remember to print these off before your visit as the restaurant does not accept them by showing them the voucher on your on you phone.

“Firm favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have had many enjoyable meals here since it opened about five years ago. The food is some of the best Thai food I've eaten anywhere in the UK - it is consistently excellent. The staff are very friendly and genuinely pleased to see you - nothing is too much trouble. We arrived yesterday (a Monday) in the early evening, normally a really dead spot for most restaurants. I was surprised to find that the restaurant was already half full which is a really good sign.
We ordered one of the the set meals for two from the menu and a bottle of reasonable priced NZ sauv.blanc which was excellent. Both the starters and the main dishes were predictably excellent.
Cost with wine, water and coffees was approximately £68

Tip: Join their mailing list and every month you'll be emailed vouchers for £10 off a bill of £50 or more for two people, and £20 off a bill of £100 for four. Pity I left it pinned up in my kitchen...

“Very good food, disappointing drink service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Came here as a group and found the food to be of an excellent standard on the whole. Mixed / shared starter was particularly good. Only disappointment was the drinks service. When ordering a beer I was asked if I would want a pint. Pint comes out with half a bottle of beer. Why not state clearly there are bottles? Also a friend asked for some water and was given a 1.5ltr bottle without the option to take the smaller bottle. Really left a sour taste in the mouth as these issues spoiled the experience

“Deserves its high rating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Visited here with my girlfriend for a change based on good Tripadvisor reports and weren't disappointed. The welcome was warm and service excellent and friendly throughout. We started with a sharing tureen of tom yum gai which was fragrant, flavoursome and spicy - just as it should be with the lemon grass and galangal underlying the chilli heat. I had a chicken jungle curry which was very tasty but might be a bit hot for some with a side of pak choi and my girlfriend had a beef Thai salad which was surprisingly good - spicy with lots of fresh crunchy veg in a marinade sauce that was almost like a hot and sour sauce. All of the food just exuded freshness with plenty of crunch along with the delicious flavours. It's as good as I've eaten in a Thai restaurant. I thought the food prices were pretty reasonable, 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 sides and rice for just under £20 a head though the beer was a little pricey at £7 for a "large beer" (which seemed to be 2 x 330 ml bottles). We will be visiting here again soon.
