Best Thai in Atlanta – I spent several months in Thailand basically eating myself into a Thai coma. I have spent years since then trying to find something that compares. Little Bangkok is my home away from home. The most authentic curries, and spicing. I feel as though I'm back in Bangkok. The lunch specials with the spicy soup are cheap and amazingly good and filling. My favorites are the Pad Thai, Panang Chicken, Tom Kha Soup, and I hear the masaman curry is fantastic. Other noodle dishes are great as well.
Awesome – This place really is a hidden find! What a deal for lunch! You get probably the best hot and sour soup I have ever had to start, and whatever you want from the lunch menu with rice for like 6 bucks after tax! My boyfriend eats here with his co-workers a few times a week and all the waiters know them and are so friendly. The pad thai is the best in Atlanta, the panang is awesome...even though I have to say that Mali's in the Va. highlands is my favorite, and the pad see ew is great too! Very authentic flavors, not americanized like some other places in ATL. They used to serve oranges after the meal was finished, but the last few times I've been they didn't do that. The service is always super speedy at lunch too. We went once for dinner and it was still really good, but its just not as cheap, which is almost half the fun! You definitely leave here full and happy, except that everyone is right, the parking is a little bit of a challenge.
Great Budget Thai! Mild To Thai Hot! – This little hole-in-the-wall on Cheshire Bridge, has become a well known jewel. This happens to be one of our favorite luncheon spots. Super clean and efficient, the menu offers both Thai and Chinese. Stick with the Thai. The Green Papaya Salad with Beef Jerkey, is out of this world. If it's on the menu, and you like it spicy, this is the food to get. Soups are very good also. Especially the Tom Yom, with shrimp. Here again, you can get it Thai hot. Massaman, Yellow, and Red Curries are outstanding. Budget prices, for great homestyle Thai. Parking is terrible.
Bad service, okay food – Little bangkok boasts of the best thai in atlanta. They have a limited thai menu and the rest is chinese. The thai food itself is okay, apart from red curry nothing really stands out. The atmosphere is more diner-like than anything else. Go there for a one-time experience.
The service and courtesy is lacking. I understand that service is not one of the strong points of any south-east asian restaurant but i was disappointed.
Now this is a Thai resaurant – Usually a restaurant that offers both Chinese and Thai food does neither well. This one does both very well. Service is quick, food is fresh, hot and spicy (to taste) and the prices are the best in town for such great food. Both the decor and the food are authentic Thai, even the music and the wait staff are Thai. Lunch and dinner are always busy, and the only reason this place doesn't get a perfect score is that there is virtually no parking at all. Otherwise it's a don't-miss.
I almost don't want to recommend.. i don't want to have to wait for a table! – Sparkingly clean restaurant serves up Thai and Chinese delicacies at very good prices! Favorites include the Thai dumpling appetizer, any Thai soup and any spicy dishes either Chinese or Thai! Doesn't get much better than Little Bangkok!
Tried it first time tonight with wife who is critical of Thai restaurants - we loved it – Everything we had - spring rolls, soups, curry dishes - excellent and very light on the wallet. Thai tea a little too sweet - only complaint.
Service was outstanding.
This will be our Thai mainstay.
Customer of 10 years very dissapointed... – Have been a long standing customer for YEARS. The rude, disrespectful waitstaff is clearly stressed. The very friendly service and welcoming environment are sadly missing from this once fantastic family owned business. There was a misunderstanding about the order on June 18, 2005 about 5:15 pm or so. The bellowing out about the change in the order was noxious, immature and shocking. A removal of a vegetable due to allergies was the only request. In the past, such a change was ALWAYS met with kind service. The water fellow adopted the most hateful, inappropriate, intimidating attitude complete with slamming of water glasses onto the table after refilling. I asked that the rude comments stop as they were effecting the tables around us. Owner was not on premisis... I believe she would have been very upset if she had seen the interatction of her staff. I will stop by this week and discuss the obvious change in environment. Get a grip. There is competition for great Thai food and kind people in Atlanta. This is my last visit to this establishement for a dining experience. My guest was also shocked, we are both in service professions... I would not have a business if I behaved this way toward my clients.
An Atlanta Standard – Arguably the best Thai food in Atlanta. You may have a long-ish wait to get a table, but after that the service is usually very fast. The food, in my experience, is ALWAYS great.
My only complaint is that I wish they'd replace the front door so that it opens outwards. Opening inwards, it consumes about a third of the tiny waiting/cashier area which is commonly packed with people.
Oh, and parking is a royal pain.
BUT, it's all worth it... the excellent food wipes away all parking-, waiting- and crowdedness-related tears with the first mouthful. YUM!
Great soups – I love the soups here, sometimes I just get a large bowl and have that as my meal ... the hot and sour soup might be the best i've ever had, but the Tom Kha and Tom Yum soups are equally good. The menu has a nice variety and the food is always delicious and fast, friendly service is a plus. Place can get crowded and there is virtually no lobby to in which to wait, but the wait is never long and it's always worth it.
