Since my wife is a vegetarian and I could kill a cow with my bare hands, it's often difficult to find new places that offer a selection we can both enjoy. Bangkok Kitchen was able to satiate both of our palates.
Small place. GREAT thai food.
There were a lot of customers coming in for to-go orders, but only a few customers in the dining area. Immediate seating and phenomenal waiter.
An exhaustive menu of thai offerings. Was difficult to pick which item to try. The fried tofu appetizer was excellent. The pad thai was perfect, and the serving size was huge.
We'll definitely be going back.

The Bangkok Cafe is EVEN BETTER! same family! you should check it out. http://www.yelp.com/biz/bangkok-cafe-northwood
stomach grumbles, haven't had thai in a long time. Will definitely check it out. Any fish or curry dishes there you recommend?
I've only been there once, so I haven't delved too deep into the menu. I've heard the curry dishes are great. I've also heard the fried duck is amazing -- not seafood, but just giving a notice.
Maybe upso has tried a seafood dish at the cafe that he will recommend?
BK is awesome! I've eaten their every other week for almost 5 years.
Try the Gang Pla Dook - fried catfish fillet simmering in red curry with cococnut milk, eggplant, bell peppers, rhimzone, lime leaf, and basil
It so rocks!
I saw that on the menu. I'll have to give it a try soon.
I recommend the catfish as well
Sensor and upso, tyvm :) know where I'm going this weekend.
Is the food spicy? I have not had Thai before but sounds good. I just don't like a ton of heat.
I love spicy. I am going to try this place out asap. You guys have sold me on this.
You can ask from no heat to extra hot. I usually get medium or hot, though hot makes me sweat. Heat can very from day to day, depending on who's cooking.
Some items can't be ordered with no heat (I believe items with curry), but most can.
I guess I am going to have to try it then. I have always wondered about Thai food so, I guess I am in! (:
I enjoy hot food, but there's something I've noticed with Thai: sometimes the heat comes from whole hot peppers mixed in with the sauce or vegetables. If you bite down on one, you'd better have a big glass of water handy. Now I pre-emptively look through the entree and remove any large pieces of what look like peppers to me. They may be fresh and green, or dried (red or blackish).
Another amazing Thai place in Toledo is Rose Thai on Monroe St, formerly Bangkok Grill. I go there every couple of weeks. I love the Basil Chicken (Pad Bai Ka Prow), Phanaeng Curry, and Bangkok Chicken, the chicken satay and Tod Mun are great appetizers. They'll do any dish with no heat to thai spicy. They also have great service!
I love both the Rose Thai and the Bangkok Kitchen. I live right behind the Rose Thai so I go there every couple of weeks as I can afford it. At Bangkok Kitchen though, their idea of "medium" is way too hot. I like things with a little kick but I have to ask for things mild there.
I don't know if I'm spelling it right but my girlfriend told me she had cumofsomeyoungguy the other night and said she enjoyed it!
Got the medium-hot catfish curry last night. Excellent -- just the right amount of hot and the fish was nicely fried. Thanks for the recommendation. My wife stuck with the pad thai, which is always a winner.
