Reviews for @Bangkok

Three of us dropped in on a Friday night for dinner. I like what they have done with the interiors apart from a mismatch of tables and chairs. It was packed for the duration we were there and the place would fill up with smoke regularly (assuming this was when a sizzler or some other dish was prepared).
We ordered chicken satay and prawn satay to start off and they were excellent. We also ordered our mains (Spicy Noodles, Basil Fried Rice and crying Tiger - chicken) at the same time. Considering the crowd and the constant stream of customers picking up takeaways, they forgot to serve our mains for close to an hour. On enquiry they scrambled to get this rectified and we had our mains in 15min. The food was worth the wait.
My pick of the bunch was the Crying tiger with chicken as the flavour reminded me of Indo-Chinese food. My wife and our friend picked Spicy Noodles as their favourite. The Basil fried rice had a strong basil flavour but complimented the other flavours. I had a Tiger beer to go with my dinner and we also ordered a coconut smoothie (which we didn't like at all as it had a processed coconut water/cream flavour).
The pricing is reasonable considering the location and the quantity.
The bill was $68 but the host was extremely apologetic for the delay with the mains and charged us just $50!!
If you want cheap, delicious and quick (considering our delay as a rare occurrence) thai food with a bunch of people then look no further.

Have come in on a Friday night, really busy, atmosphere is quite squished however nice service so far, when they finally got over lol. The entrees and mains were ordered together, entrees came quite fast (around about 10mins wait after ordering) however mains have taken around 20/25mins after entrees...bit of a wait but the food is nice. Price is worth the food, surprised they don't charge more actually because it is delish. If they were quicker with food output then I'd give a 5.

Super yummy food, a little on the packed side but quick turnover. Staff seemed a little flustered with the crowd but friendly enough and competent where it counts (getting the food to you).

Quick fast and yummy thai food.... We ordered stir fry peanut sauce chicken, sizzling crying tiger with beef, the beef massaman curry and 2 portions of rice and 2 rotis.
The peanut sauce chicken was absolutely delicious and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed it. The roti's were pretty hard to fault also.
The restaurant only lost a point because the sizzling dish wasn't sizzling when served and the restaurant itself is quite cramped, and super super loud but I guess that's what comes with kingsland on a Thursday evening.
Overall, quite enjoyable :)

Been there twice and it does not disappoint! Service was fast and food was tasty. The curries there were really good, same goes with the stir fry. Pretty cool decor as well. It's a shame parking is quite hard to find at times.

I went to @Bangkok with a large group for a BYO dinner. The staff recommended that we get a few things to share but due to allergies and food preferences we opted to get separate meals. The food came out quickly and it all looked delicious. I had the Pad Thai with duck (yum) and it was fabulous. Lots of duck meat and great value for money. I tried the green curry which was very flavoursome but had too much spice for those who weren't used to spice. The basil stir fry was similarly delicious but too spicy for the spice-newbs however they said it was so tasty they made an extra effort to power through the spice. I was really impressed with @Bangkok and would highly recommend it. The food was delicious and so cheap. The staff were lovely and didn't seem to mind a somewhat noisy group. I went back a week later with a small group and we got dishes to share which is a much better option as the mains are very large. For four of us three mains and roti was more than enough and we couldn't finish everything. Their puffy roti was really, really good too. They seemed to be doing a good takeaway trade so I will definitely give them a call next time I want takeaway Thai.

My favorite Thai restaurant in Auckland, hands down! Service is always fast and the staff are friendly, always with a smile on their face and are very accommodating. Their foods are very, very tasty, and authentic Thai. There are selections of stir fries and, soups, salads and curries; their beef Nam Tok salad is exceptionally good, with heap of fresh herbs and the kick from the spices! If you are a fan of pad thai, try their version; it will blow your mind. They serve Singha beer too for an in depth Thai dining experience. They also do BYO, and from experience okay for larger group bookings (but not exceeding 15 people).

Bought a green prawn curry, it was so sweet as if they added condensed milk, our vegan stir fry that was requested not to have eggs got made with egg.
When we went back they offered to add more spice to the green curry, lol, as if this sorted the problem, I don't eat too spicy food.
But never received another option or solution.
Terrible service and food :-(

If you're bored with your local Thai same samey ness, try this place for the real deal - absolutely bursting with fresh flavours. We loved the beef salad and the sizzling chicken was also excellent. Decor is young and fun and the staff are friendly and super helpful. For a full review, go to http://cheapeats.co.nz/bangkok/

Cheap, quick and tasty - definitely the place to go if you're craving for some good honest Thai food out of the city. The server was quick, efficient and friendly. We shared some appetisers - chicken satay sticks and curry puffs and pad thai and pad see ew as mains. Not the best Thai place I've been to, but definitely above average.

Have been here a couple of times now to eat in and the service and food has been fantastic. (Two of my friends said its the best Thai they've had in Auckland). Great curries , spicy beef salad and delicious chicken pad thai. They do take away too, but the food tastes better when you eat in. BYO is $4.50 per person.
Will definitely go back !

I love this place, very affordable entrée/ main meals but the food is always either too salty or sweet. I have been there six times with friends. (even my friends agreed it's either too salty or sweet) I love the service and their presentation of meal. but I always had to drink a lot of water when I dine there. my kids and I love most of their entrees. I wouldn't suggest their smoothie type of drinks, they are really super sweet. (once you try, you will feel wasting your money) but it's cute place for casual dining.

This is one place that open till late! And I really thank @Bangkok for the great food and ambiance.
The food taste great and well presented. Even though we have to wait a little longer due to short of cook staff...its all worthwhile.
And yes...i did try the Panang Curry....awesome (well recommended!)
Group capacity: 10 people max. and you must make reservation.
Love the fusion concept...make the place feel young and upbeat.
Definitely a must go!

I've been to @Bangkok a few times already and the quality and taste of their food never fails to be anything but tasty and delicious. Today my partner and I had the Panang curry, mixed platter - with money bags, spring rolls and DELICIOUS peanut satay chicken skewers - and the Spicy Tom Yum noodle soup. All dishes were mouthwatering. It is a cosy restaurant with a relaxed decor. Service was great as usual not to mention the affordable prices of all the dishes. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Wow, what an awesome experience it was to dine here!
My partner and I love our Thai food, and this hidden gem is hands down the best Thai restaurant we have been to yet - the food is wonderfully presented, the taste is as authentic Thai cuisine as you can get, and the best part? Our mains were $11.50, appetizers $4!
It is the modern Thai dining experience, very classy with excellent service from the staff to match! We now frequent @Bangkok at least twice a month, it makes our trips from Pakuranga worth the drive!

Took my work colleagues here for dinner and absolutely enjoyed it! The food came out pretty quick, especially for a booking of 10 on a Saturday night. I'd have to say the pad thai dish was my favourite but the chicken satay skewers came a very close second. Very very reasonably priced too! I definitely recommend it!

I was at this restaurant tonight with 5 friends before heading off to the rugby at Eden Park. Has got to have been the worst service I have ever experienced. Very long waits for food as the staff were too busy doing takeaway orders to cook our meals. Waited an hour for our mains to come. My meal was so bad I refused to pay for it. Would never recommend this place to anyone.

This restaurant is exactly what you expect, its cute, non pretentious and very reasonable. The service is great and the food is fresh and delicious. The chicken satay was really yummy and a bargain at just $4 for two sticks. Similar Thai food to what you might get from the Ponsonby food court and Food Alley at about the same price but in a much nicer dining environment and presented in a much more appealing manner. This will definitely be my new local.

They've gone for a proper Bangkok theme here, as opposed to just a generic Thai one...
The food here is very authentic and extremely tasty. Plus, these guys are really nice! Excellent range of exotic Thai-style drinks, and beer to come soon I'm told.
Great addition to the neighbourhood.

Great food, fast and super friendly service. Thai food packed with fresh flavour and spice!! Have visited twice, eaten in and take out, both times were met with friendly service even when they're busy.

It has never been my thing to talk about food in terms of value for money as great food is great food in my point of view, doesn't matter if it's $15 or $100. However, I cannot believe it when I come across this cute little Thai takeaway restaurant that serves tasty food, yet can be so inexpensive, especially that it is near Auckland Central.. well this is close enough as it's less than 5km in distance from the City Central, took me around 7-8 mins drive. $11.50 for every main dish is madness for Thai food in the city, and to top it off.. side dish is ONLY $4 each! My first thinking is that there must be a catch to this.. but there really isn't. Food is just as superb and tasty where you can find in any expensive and ostentatious Thai restaurants in Auckland. Forget about silver service, this place is all about quick, tasty and comfort food. The panang curry on rice had a beautiful smooth consistency with just enough spice, and enough sauce to be mopped up by the amazing hot steamy Jasmine rice, and the Pad Thai noodles was just right with the right texture of softness in the noodles. We also ordered the deep fried wings, which proved to be a great side, along with chicken satay sticks. The satay sauce literally was heavenly. It was too much food for the 2 of us, but it tasted so good I ate myself stupid.. I limped out of the place. We love it and would definitely be regulars in this warm cozy place.
