Little Bad Kok – Like one of the other reviewers on here, I too wondered if those writing the many positive reviews and myself both dined at the same restaurant.
We went around 9PM on a Friday and were seated immediately. A good thing. The store looks like a nasty, little, hole-in-the wall on Cheshire Bridge Road with terrible parking, but we thought,
"OK, cruddy looking on the outside just may mean good things on the inside." It didn't. The sign in the front window stating, "Do not leave valuables in your car." was a bit disconcerting as well.
The place is small and noisy. No problem, if the food is good I can overlook almost anything. It wasn't. The fresh basil roll with shrimp that we both ordered was like plastic with a sickly sweet, almost
of jam consistency, peanut sauce. The Tom Ka Soup had an orange color that I have never seen in my many years of eating Tom Ka Soup. (Was it Halloween in Thailand?) The Bangkok Chicken and the
House Lo Mein we ordered was of equal quality to that found in an Asian take-away in any shopping mall food court, at double the price. Next time if I want mediocre Asian food I will save myself some
money and eat at Panda Express.
One wonders from the many positive reviews of this restaurant and the many really mediocre to bad food establishments in the city, that perhaps the residents of this area just don't know good food.
Best Green Curry on Earth – Been coming here for years and never had a bad moment or a bad meal. Prompt professional service. Excellent thai cuisine. Small, intimate environment. Ample booths and a few large tables for groups, perfect for conversation, lingering.
Once inside, a neighborhood favorite – This particular stretch of Cheshire Bridge doesn't look like it would be home to a comfortable, friendly, family-run restaurant (and, during peak hours, you might find yourself spending a few extra moments on the outside looking in while parking or waiting for a table to open up) but once you're seated you'll settle in and (likely) enjoy your meal. Any kind of meal. The kitchen succeeds on both the Thai and the Chinese sides of the menu and can please pork aficionados (I recommend to moo shu pork) as easily as vegetarians (pad see ew with tofu). Bring a friend, steal off each other's plates, and raise a glass of plum wine to your shared good taste about what tastes good.
Awesome-brought my childhood back! – I grew up with Thai friends who introduced me to the best Thai restaurants in Hawaii. This restaurant brought me back! The mango coconut rice dessert was perfect, just past green mango how we love it in the aina. The spring rolls and peanut sauce make my mouth water even now when I am full and satisfied. Chicken satay comes with awesome fresh cucumber dish. And they have green papaya salad!!! It's not on the menu but I asked for it, and it was awesome. They had fantastic banana lumpia for dessert. The chicken larb was strong to my cousins who I was visiting, but I liked it on my rice. They serve the yummy sticky rice too in the little basket. The Thai iced tea was good and the waithelp told me where I could shop for some. Pad see euw (Spelling?) was so good with beef and bok choy and bean sprouts. they accomodated recipes not on their menu with my desriptions for an extra dollar. And they didn't bat an eyelash when my cousin and I walked in with eight kids between us. I love to share good food with my kids and people who don't look horrified as soon as I walk in get an instant 5% extra tip from me on top of normal tip. The finished plates kept disappearing without my noticing which I always appreciate. We ordered more good stuff I just can't remember it all. Will definitely return again and again. Will show up early again as it fills up fast. Decor inside made me feel like I was back home too...
Best Pad See Ew in ATL – I used to live in Austin, TX and fell in love with the dish Pad See Ew at a restaurant called Madam Mam's. Since I've been in Atlanta for 3 years, I've tried about 10 different versions of this dish and am happy to say that I have found the winner: Little Bangkok. It's almost a bad thing that it tastes so good at this place because it is SO ADDICTIVE. There is something about what they put in their food that will make you crave it.
This restaurant is a hidden gem. You would never think that behind that Cheshire Bridge hole-in-the wall facade is a fabulous restaurant. The wait staff was very quick and nice. Our meals were wonderful and hot. All-in-all we had no complaints. Granted, I've only been there once, but I will bet that it becomes a staple.
I was very specific, I can't have MSG. Ate here anyway- told OK.... A few hours later, came down with a migrane. Spent the whole night in the bathroom floor. Some of us can't handle MSG. These Asia restaurants need to learn- this is something serious for some of us!!!! Don't trust them, even if they say it's OK. They don't seem to care enough. Shame on them.
This is some d$mn good food – Great for lunch, entrees under $6. They get you in and out. I frequent this place and I always get my food in less than 10 mins, after ordering it. Friendly staff. Great food. Diverse menu. Dinner entrees under $8. Great portions, even during lunch. Great flavor. Authentic.
!!! The Goods:
Chicken Fried Rice,
Lunch prices are under 6 dollars but credit/debit card charges have a $10 minimum.
Lunch comes with sweet and sour soup. If you dont like, make sure you ask for wonton or egg drop instead.
Chinese lunch entree comes with eggroll, so you dont have to order a side eggroll!!!
Great experience – My first impression wasn't much, parking was very limited. Once inside the hospitallity was incredible, service from our waiter was so pleasant, he made us feel like he wanted us there. We asked for a recommendation from him, which we went with... I had the coconut flavored soup....YUM!!!! and also the dumplings... Our entrees were the Basil steak and Panang Flounder.....Don't miss out on the Thai Tea...Awesome place and we'll be back.....
Worst Thai Food – The Coconut soup and Nu Nan Tok was the worst I ever tasted. The soup was unlike anything I've ever tried. The Nu Nan Tok was burnt and very spicy when I had requested it mild. If you have ever eaten at Annie's Thai Castle or Surin you would see why I was disappointed. Never to return again. Wasted money and I'm still hungry?
