We'd be here a lot more often but it's kind of a schlepp from Chambersburg so we combine it with our monthly or so run to Wegman's. This last visit my husband had a calamari appetizer he loved and the tamarind duck which was also wonderful. I had my favorites - green papaya salad (could have been a bit hotter so next time I'll request more heat) and the yummy Mango Mango Curry. Panang curry is another favorite. Love that Thai basil. Generous enough portions we had leftovers to take home. Wondering what restaurant some of the other reviewers were at because we always have good and attentive service and get our food in good time. Always delight in the fresh cymbidium and dendrobium orchids on the tables, the parasol ceiling and the salt water fish tank. Love this place.

Great food, pleasant setting. Try the lemongrass soup with shrimp! And the vegetarian entrees are delicious. I dream of this place.

To celebrate special events, this is our favorite venue. We have never been disappointed.

The menu is far broader and each item's description is more detailed than "expansive" would suggest. The cooks will do their best to deliver a meal that matches your preferred place on the chemesthesis or pungency scale. Vegan & vegetarian accommodation is offered across the menu. The interval between order and presentation has recently been shortened.

It is obvious that management wants satisfied diners and they go above & beyond to make the experience outstanding.

We shared an appetizer of minced fish. The water chestnuts in which the distinctive flavors & textures of every ingredient were easily recognized. Asparagus & chicken and boneless CRISPY roast duck were the selections and they surpassed already high expectations.

We will return. Bucket list: to experience every menu items. So far just a drop in that bucket!

Our family of 8 got together at Bangkok Wok to celebrate my adult son's birthday. We had reservations, and it's a good thing. There were quite a few large tables reserved on that mid-week evening.

Bangkok Wok's Pad Thai is the best I have ever had. We also loved the Drunken Noodles and the Pineapple Curry Chicken. All of these were perfect to pass around the table to share. And for dessert, the mango and rice dish was amazing.

They don't have a liquor license, but they are eager to bring wine glasses, etc. to your table.

We have tried Thhai food all across the country
Bangkok Wok sets the standard against which all other Thai restaurants are measured. A few have come close bit none have surpassed this gem in terms of taste, quality and service. We typically order 5-6 entrees and share. Focussing primarily on the vegetarian options, we can vouch for the pad see euw, the pad thai, massaman and panang curries, and pineapple fried rice
Fresh mango sticky rice tops of the tastiness! On our latest outing, the first Dish was served in under 15 minuted. You will not be disappointed.
