Outstanding experience once again. Efficient service, delivered with a smile. I had the Satay to start and the Pad Thai for main, and they were exquisite.

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.

On Cardiff’s Cowbridge Road East, Bangkok Café in South Wales is a 12-minute walk from Ninian Park Rail Station. Cardiff Central Rail Station is a 6-minute drive away.

    Food was absolutely delicious. However the restaurant was very busy and we were sat in the area just by the door - this should have been a designated area for people waiting, but two small tables had been placed there. This had the effect that we both felt tense and we certainly didn’t enjoy the claustrophobic atmosphere. I wouldn’t eat there again.

    My partner and I went to the Bangkok Café for my birthday meal. With the demise of our favourite – the Thai House – we decided we would stay with the Thai tradition at the café owned by the same family.

    The less formal style of the Café made the meal very relaxing and the food was delicious.

    We started with Dom Yam Gung – a delicious and spicy prawn soup with lemon grass and galangal. A lovely warming bowl of deliciousness was a great start to the meal.

    We then shared three starters – Bor Bia Sot, Bla Muk Tord and Larb Gai – The tamarind flavour of the Bor Bia was wonderful, the crispy calamari of the bla muk tord was perfect with the chilli sauce and the minced chicken came in lovely lettuce leaves making them so easy to eat. All of them were delicious.

    For mains, my partner went for Bed Grapow, duck with tulsi (thai basil) and chillies with a yellow rice and steamed veg. As with the other elements of the meal the balance of flavours were perfect and the food fresh and crisp. My main course was Gai Yang Som Dam, a roast chicken dish with a sharp and taste som dam salad and sticky rice. I’ve been eating Thai food for thirty years, and I am still surprised by the richness of the flavour.

    Overall the Bangkok Café turned out to be a tasty experience in a simple setting, we will be back.
