What You'll Get
The best part about eating Asian food is the confidence that comes with knowing more than one billion people tacitly support your culinary decision; the second-best part is that their bakers can see the future. Enjoy a fortunate feast with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $15 worth of Thai and other Asian cuisine at Bangkok Restaurant on Macarthur Boulevard.
Bangkok's menu is much like its namesake city: colorful, fun to explore at night, and almost impossible to drive through. Ambush your sleeping taste buds with an appetizer of four spring rolls ($3.99), fried wonton ($3.99), or fried sweet biscuits ($3) washed down with egg-drop soup ($2.50) or a sweet yum yai salad ($7.25). Bangkok's entrees run the gamut from spicy to non-spicy to curry, and its cuisine wanders further afield in Asia than just Thailand. An order of pad pet brings the jungle heat with chicken or pork ($9.15), and the kang kua curry artfully offsets its spiciness with the sweetness of crushed pineapple and coconut milk ($8.99–$10.99). For a dish that strikes the tongue's three major pressure points, try the spicy sweet and sour chicken ($9.15), or take a walk on Bangkok's mild side with its delectable pad thai ($7.99–$9.50, or $7.95 for lunch). A lunch menu sports an array of salad, noodle, and fried-rice dishes to fuel bodies for afternoon climbs up rickety corporate ladders.
Since its colorful décor doesn't overcompensate with a lot of ornately ornamented elephants or multi-story Buddha statues, Bangkok sets itself apart from the culinary competition with an attentive wait staff dishing out fresh-made smiles. The restaurant's laid-back atmosphere provides a comfortable setting in which diners can put jaws through their paces while teaching fingers to tap out jazz standards in Morse code.
- The food is very good, especially the egg rolls. The food has to be authentic from a true Thai native. – happyme4, Citysearch
- This was the best Thai food experience I have ever had. I drug [sic] my Thai boyfriend along with me, and he said it tasted just like his Mother's food, if not better. – a Yahoo! Local contributor
