Food and service is very good, the atmosphere is warm though decor is a little tattered and could use a face lift.

We went to this restaurant on a Friday night. We had reservations, and we were glad we did. You do have to climb up some steep stairs to get to the restaurant, but there are handrails on either side to help you! The atmosphere is pleasant although a little noisy. This might have been due to the very large group... More

Everything was delish. only flaw: we both would have ordered hotter (on... More

This was our first visit to the Squirrel Hill neighborhood and we were very impressed with the vibrant feel to the area. We selected the Bangkok Balcony based on several favorable reviews and they were spot on. I should mention the restaurant is located on the second floor and the staircase is a bit steep. If a window table is... More

This is my favorite of the Squirrel Hill neighborhood Thai restaurants. The green curry is excellent. Their dining room has a nice view of Forbes Ave and is less crowded than Silk Elephant, there are always seats. Take out is quick and easy

We dashed upstairs to this Thai restaurant just 15 minutes before they were to close for the night, and were concerned they would either turn us away or begrudgingly allow us to stay. Instead we were greeted with smiles and courtesy, and made to feel we could eat and drink our wine in a relaxed pace. We had an appetizer... More

I ordered the tofu in red curry. It came with a small side of salad & fried roll. The tofu was cut in half-inch cubes and the sliced bamboo shoots with it looked like they came out of a can. I had been here twice for dinner before and I'd rate those visits a 4. Service was very good, though.

The atmosphere of the Bangkok Balcony is nicer than Silk Elephant because the seating is much more comfortable. There is more personal space and if you sit near the windows you have an interesting view of the street below. I do prefer the menu at Silk Elephant around the corner because it offers more healthy options and they have the... More

I have been here many times over the years. So while my daughter and I were in squirrel hill today, we stopped in for lunch. It is on the second floor on Forbes Ave, the main business district. It is a bit dark, but it is great to sit along the large windows facing Forbes Ave. We had shrimp pad... More
