Still the best Thai in Utah. – I am glad to see Bangkok Thai open again at its new location. Much bigger space but still the same great food. Service was a little slow but the food was well worth the wait. I am willing to wait for food that good.
THE OWNER IS A WACKO – Every time we go here it is a joke. actual comedy.
Tonight the power went out for no reason
Their waiters are frazzled while being bossed around by the owner who is so up in everyone's business it is a riot. The place is usually empty.
And what a negative nancy the guy is too.
ALSO ITS FREEZING. he says the heater is on but i think he is just cheap . but you will stay warm by the fire place because it takes ten minutes to be seated.. why? the owner is in outer space.
People dine in this resturant with their coats on.
They never have dumplings so dont order them.
No complaints about the food
Bankok Thai Delay – Atrocious service. It was almost hard to believe that there could be such a lack of concern. It was not busy. The manager was so far out in space that he did not recognize that there was any problem with our table or any of the other diners that were waiting. I refuse to give it another chance.
First time experience in thai food reataurant own by ?????? – - great service
- dishes decoration is very good
- not even one person in there is thai
- owner is not friendly
- food have no taste , even they try to put all thai ingredient but there is no taste of thai food
If you ever eat thai food before , you wont need to go to this restaurant ...........
new location not as good as previous Foothill Bangkok Thai – I wanted to like this new Thai food location like the original Bangkok Thai in Foothill Village, but a lot is missing.... portions are smaller, food is very average, but worst of all is the very poor service, and a feeling that "nobody cared..." Maybe with the huge influx of Thai food in Salt Lake now, it is too difficult to find a good Thai chief now... heard rumors that owner, Dennis was not easy to work for and that may be the reason why the staff was not so concerned about the service offered... there are much better choices in Salt Lake City now.. very sorry to have an old favorite slip so much...
Bad Service – Foods not bad - Service is terrible. Always understaffed, long waits dinning in or picking up.
Owner is "too busy" to deal with customer when there's two groups in the restaurant.
great food but terrible service – When I first walked into this place, I was shocked to see that there was no hostess. I have been to bangkok thai 3 times and every single time i go, nobody is there to greet you and we end up waiting over 10 minutes to even get acknowledged. And this is when there are less than 4 tables in the whole restaurant. They really need to hire a hostess, instead of having the manager run around trying to seat people. I suggested this to the manager and he said they have problems with people calling in sick....not that this actually addressed my concerns. The server switched the level of spiciness in my and my boyfriend's dishes, mine ended up being extra spicy instead of medium, which prevented me from eating it comfortably. the server blamed this on the cook.
The reason i keep coming back is because their food is truly delicious. I always get a curry dish and they are very flavorful, different spiciness, and have a variety of vegetables, which i like. the ambience is so-so. Mainly i think the food is commendable, which is why i am willing to put up with the awful service.
Consistently Wonderful – I was introduced to Bankok Thai by a friend when it opened after relocating. I had never tried Thai food before and was skeptical. Since then I have gone back at least once a week and have tried everything on the menu. I have yet to be disappointed. The staff is usually very prompt and friendly. My food has almost always been perfect and is fixed quickly if requested. Try the Panang Curry - my favorite.
Excellent Thai and friendly service – Bangkok Thai Talay has amazing food. They get busy sometimes, which is a good thing. However the staff are always professional and very friendly. At their busiest, it is best to either go without time restraints, or wait for a less busy time. This is the only place I consistently get Thai food. Between the time the Foothill location closed and the new location opened, I tried many other places. I found one in Yuba City, CA that is pretty close. Now that Bangkok is open again, we go there at least 3-4 times a month, sometimes more. I like most everything on their menu. Though tastes vary, my favorites are: Red Curry with tofu, the coconut broth soup, tofu cakes in chu chee curry, the seared scallops and tuna, panang curry, evil prince, evil princess, and drunken noodles. Okay, there are probably more but these are excellent. I am not a thai iced tea fan, but my friends say theirs is excellent. If you are unsure of what to order, ask Ben or Dennis to give you a hand, they will be very happy to assist. Since they have reopened, I went back to one of the local places that was 'pretty good' because it is closer to me, and it was just not the same. Bangkok Thai is now and again the only place I go in SLC for Thai.
p.s. they are so good, that even with gas as bad as it is I drive up from Sandy even if I have to get carryout.
plain atmosphere but good food – I'm compelled to write because of some negative reviews. I liked the food and the service here and will go back.
