Blink and you could miss it, the Bangkok Café restaurant does little to bring attention to itself, sandwiched between a pastry take-away and a barber shop. But having found the restaurant it is like a brilliant diamond in a sea of glass and paste fakes. The reception is warm and friendly with smiling staff eager to please the customer. The... More

The little restaurant is warm and inviting and the service is very good. The food however, wasn't that wonderful. That said, the two starters we ordered were truly scrumptious, especially the coconut-based soup. Pretty much the best I've ever tasted. However, the Phad Thai main course wasn't great. The whole dish was strangely pink, and the noodles were a bit... More

Having eaten in many Thai restaurants over the years, I can honestly say I've never seen such an original and varied menu. If you're looking for a truly different choice of Thai food then this is the place for you. Service was very good and prices, although slightly on the expensive side, are reasonable for the varied choice.

I've visited the Bangkok Cafe around 10 times now, the food is fantastic, really tasty and is served quickly too. The service is also great and the staff very friendly.

For Thai food this place is the best in Cardiff! Amazing Thai Green Curry- so delicious! Keep going back time and time again. Lovely decor and nice vibe inside. Can't wait to go back! Just one thing.. I wish they served something like a prawn cracker to dip in and soak up their delicious source!

Pleasant cafe type decor and friendly welcome. Food served in generous portions, Tom Yum soup was hot and spicy but a little too salty for my taste. Chicken Satay was delicious. Beef Penang curry was very tasty as was the green curry, both were hot. Will definitely return again to try other dishes from the menu

Have had a takeaway once and ate here last Saturday evening. Had planned to go out for drinks after but we were too full. Shared ribs to start and chicken green curry and beef penang curry for mains. All dishes had so much flavour. The curries were quite spicy, luckily we both love spice - but would be worth asking... More

I have been to this Thai restaurant a number of times, and it's a nice place for an informal Thai meal. Particularly tasty dishes include the grilled beef and the Som Dam salad. However, this time I was disappointed: The Pad Thai we ordered was gloopy, the beef undercooked (despite people at my table specifying "Medium" it arrived more or... More

I popped in on Thursday night to pick up a takeaway and one of the dishes I ordered was the pad Thai. When I got home I was disappointed to discover that there were only 4 prawns. For £8.50 I expected more. What a shame as we have eaten several times at the restaurant and always had good quality food... More
