Lamb and potato curry was excellent. Son in law eggs were unusual but delicious.

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.

    I had the jungle curry and it was delicious! One of my favourite dining experiences in Cardiff to date. Can't believe I'm so late to try it!

    The first time visit for us,
    The welcome from the staff was excellent..
    The decor was very good, bright , comfortable ...
    The food was excellent and the house wine was very good. , really enjoyed it.
    The only criticism we both had was the plastic plates and dishes, would have liked the food on china plates.

    Wide range of Thai dishes. Clearly a busy and popular place to eat.

    Duck and basil stir fry was amazing. We ordered an extra pad Thai as well which was very nice.

    Excellent food and service

    The food is brilliant! Tasty, very generous portion sizes (enough for a hefty doggy bag) and quick to appear. The restaurant feels spacious when you consider the size of the place and it is comfortable. The only thing i would say is if you're looking for a place where you can take your time, have a chat and spend more than a few hours there then its not ideal as there is a quick turn over of table. But i guess that is testament to the success of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend Bangkok Cafe, especially the king prawn starter and noodle soup!
