Restaurant details
Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, After-hours, Reservations, Seating, Serves Alcohol
Neighbourhood: Broughton & Calton
Description: Authentic Thai street food served daily (closed Mondays in winter) from noon till 10pm in our quirky little cocktail bar. Enjoy quick, fresh, tasty dishes, "immense" cocktails, beers and some great music in this slightly brash "Thai fast food" environment. Drop in and chill out. Also a great place to enjoy a pre or post dinner drink if dining in the adjoining Port of Siam, Newtown restaurant.

“Only had cocktails but will be back.”
Reviewed 18 February 2014 via mobile

Popped in while waiting to get a table at near by restaurant it was busy and we had to stand but the welcome from staff was fantastic and the cocktails we had were great. We will be back to sample the food which looked good as it went past. Bar staff were fun and helpful.

“Worth checking out!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Went here for lunch today and had a great experience. I ordered the mussels and fish tempura and chips while my friend had the winter salad and pad thai (both off the set menu) and we were really pleased with the dishes. The staff were very friendly and attentive and there wasn't a long wait for the food. We had soft drinks and coffees and the bill was very reasonable (£15 each).
Will definitely be back!

“Delicious food and wonderful staff”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Had a really lovely meal at The Bangkok Bar dining from the street food menu. The satay chicken was lovely with a really zingy fresh sauce and the curry puffs were crispy and sizzling hot. I had a Bloody Orient cocktail (twist on the old Bloody Mary) which was perfect - the lime, coriander and lemongrass made it fresh and different and the bartender got the level of chilli heat just right! Lively and friendly atmosphere - I'm sure we'll be paying The Bangkok Bar another visit before too long. And we've already recommended it to friends!
