“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

I read about the Bangkok Bistro on TripAdvisor and was looking for a place to eat convenient to Arlington National Cemetery. We went for lunch. Parking is nearby in the mall garage for $1 - remember where you park! My friend ordered the lunch plate salmon. It came with a spring roll, rice and a Thai salad. I ordered the teriyaki chicken which came with a beautiful presentation of steamed veggies, a spring roll, rice, and a Thai salad. We ordered Thai tea a large glass which was almost to pretty to drink and tasted as good as it looked.
Service was excellent and the lunch menu was a good value. The Bangkok Bistro deserves the number one rating of restaurants in Arlington, VA.

“Great food / atmosphere / services”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

I went there with my family during my latest trip to USA and we had very good experience. Foods were great, service was excellent. Would suggest "phad thai" (fried rice noodle in thai style), "bangkok bistro samplers", "papaya salad with prawn" and "fried squid legs". All dishes taste like what we have here in thailand. So, all guests shall enjoy thai foods with authentic thai taste here.

“Reviews are right; great neighborhood place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

We got the appetizers sampler and crispy duck. Yummy and fresh. My drink needed a refresher and instead they made me a new one. Super polite staff and very good quality food; we'll be back.
