Recommended by the Guardian, Bangkok Café summons excellent Thai cuisine to Cardiff through a perfected blend of Thai herbs and spices. Complete with a chic bar area, Bangkok Thai restaurant also flaunts an electrifying décor.

Boasting locally sourced ingredients, the Bangkok Café menu includes a delicious fillet of lightly battered trout, cooked in a red curry paste, as well as mouth-watering Welsh lamb cutlets marinated in Thai herbs and spices with a piquant sauce. A selection of popular Thai curries includes the spicy roast duck red curry, along with a mild golden pumpkin and white radish curry with a cucumber relish and vegetable tempura. The Bangkok Café noodles, with prawns, squid, pak choi, baby corn, spring onions and a hint of curry, are also a flavourful favourite.

Boasting bold green and red leather booth seats, Bangkok restaurant complements these with glossy black furnishings. Adopting a sleek mirrored wall and mood lighting, Bangkok Café Thai restaurant in in Cardiff creates a cosmopolitan vibe.

    Ver good food with vibrant Thai flavours. A wide range of dishes for all, several of our group have visited Thailand though not me. Excellent friendly service, swift without being in any way pushy that enabled us to dine comfortably before going to Wales v Irelad rugby.

    Slow and inattentive service. Starters flavourless as was green curry. Stir fried chicken very spicy but no depth. Mushroom soup had no mushrooms! We won't be back.

    We were impressed with our first visit to this restaurant, decor is retro and created a different ambience. The food was excellent, well presented and flavoursome. Service was attentive without being overpowering. We will return.

    Very welcoming staff, huge menu choice, very efficient service. The chef even changed beef to chicken for my husbands main course. The food was delicious and the flavours really good. Will definitely be going back.

    Jungle curry is lovely and can highly recommend the deep fried veg. Nice atmosphere. I was slightly disappointed with the use of plastic plates and bowls etc
