My girlfriend (Annie), who lives in Dearborn, invited me to accompany her for lunch over to the Bangkok96 Restaurant...She's eaten here ever since they opened their doors back in '96. Even though it was an hour's drive from Toledo, I'm thrilled that I went. I'm normally a 'meat and potatoes' man but recently my lady friend convinced me to start eating high-quality, healthier food. Genevieve (the owner & founder) started us off with some wonderful hot, green tea, a cup of their famous Hot and Sour soup, followed by a 'killer' medley of appetizers...Wow! Next, our main entree arrived. I ordered the PAD TARRAY...Annie ordered the PAD PAK...Both dishes were BEYOND fabulous! To top things off, we feasted on some coconut ice cream for desert...the best I've ever had! You can be sure, I'll be making the Toledo to Dearborn drive on a regular basis! In closing, all I can say is, "Don't walk but RUN to the Bangkok96...You'll be glad you did!"

this is the worst thai resturaunt i have ever been to. I went there after reading all the good reviews and I was shocked when i ate there. I wonder how could people give it 5 star rating . May those who rated it 5 have not really been to an authentic thai resturaunt and dont know how thai cusine is supposed to be . Very linited choice. I went there in a group of 6 people and all of us ordered different dish . But once we were served we felt that all of us got the same thing with different sauces. I ordered vegetable and tofu in basil curry. But what I got was green pepper and tofu in soy sauce. There was no hint of basil in it at all. Another friend ordered shrimp and vegeatable in yellow curry and he also got green pepper and shrimp in sauce. It appeared to us that we were all served green pepper with either tofu, chicken or shrimp in different sauce. All the dishes were lacking the authentic thai aroma. I am very very disappointed and would never go there again.

I've driven past this spot for years, never stopping to try. It's not the most appealing location. However, after reading a number of positive reviews, I decided to stop in. I really like Thai food, and enjoy a couple of other restaurants in Dearborn, so I had some immediate comparison. In short, I don't really understand the fuss. I eat Thai a couple of times a month, and this is pretty ordinary. It's not bad, but it's not that good, either. It's just average, and that's how I rated it. Maybe I caught them on a bad day, but I'll stick with Thai Palace.

I lived in dearborn for several years and ate at Bangkok 96 ALL THE TIME!!! I had and still have their number on speed dial!! I love this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone who is a thai food lover!! I miss not living in Dearborn anymore and not getting to eat there anymore!! I love to visit so I can get the Thai food fix when I do!! :)

I have been to many Thai restaurants and this is the best one I have been to so far. The waitstaff are efficient, the owners are gracious and the food is excellent! The Tom Yom soup is very good and spring rolls are good for starters. For my entree, I have a few favorites: Thai Steak is very thin strips of tender beef with vegetables and a brown sauce; Shrimp Pad Thai--shrimp with egg and noodles; Bangkok Seafood Combo--a very flavorful dish which has red snapper, squid, shrimp, imitation crab, scallops with mushrooms, chinese vegetables and transparent noodles.; Beef Pad Se' Ewew which is beef, broccolli and noodles covered with a brown sauce. Oh, by the way, be sure you know how spicy you can take it here. If you are not sure, get it mild and add spice (which they have on each table) to your taste. They have spiciness from mild to very hot! There are a few more dishes to name here but I am getting hungry now.....I think Thai food is a go for lunch.

Pros:The portions are large, and the food tastes pretty good. N1 and N2 are great.
Cons: The chicken isn't always trimmed the best though, excess fat. The decor is dated, and the booths are uncomfortable.
Lunch is busy, so I try to go later at night. Service is usually pretty good, but on occasion, they do disapear.
