Bangkok Thai Cuisine
When ordering a dish at Bangkok Thai Cuisine, you always know what you’ll be getting into. The restaurant classifies its dishes according to four levels of spice: mild, medium, spicy, and Thai hot. The last of these is reserved for those brave diners whose dietary staples consist of jalapenos, deep-fried chilies, and dragon meat. The rest appeal to a more diverse crowd and include highlights such as sweet-and-sour tilapia and eggplant with basil. Despite the menu’s penchant for customization, there’s only one word to describe Bangkok Thai’s dining room: warm. Chairs of rich cherry wood juxtapose spotless white tablecloths, and plants bask in the glow of small red lanterns that hang from the walls.
