Just ordered from this Thai Restaurant and I must say that Bangkok on Greenville is better than the Bangkok on 75 and Walnut Hill as their packed with more flavor. I ordered the Tom Yum Soup which was so delicious where as the Bangkok on 75 had no taste whatsoever. Bangkok on Greenville also has more selections such as the Green Tea Ice Cream I love. I think I will be ordering here from now on. I can't wait to try the other selections such as the volcano shrimp.
The scenery here is pretty great, not shabby at all. Looks like they've done something new with the restaurant. We started off with with fried shrimp, imperial rolls and chicken satay, they were all just right, especially the peanut sauce!! I love it! Their orange chicken (Sure, its Chinese but they can pull it off!) was great, i had to steal some off my boyfriend's plate! The cashew nut chicken was yum too! It wasn't as sweet as the last Thai place i went to so it was great! My boyfriend's parents had different versions of fried rice and they dug into that dish like they never ate before! I tried a bit of their plates and one was real spicy, i can't handle the spice but the vegetarian fried rice was great!

As a conservative estimate, I have eaten at 25 Thai restaurants over my life. It is by far my favorite ethnic food and I seek out new restaurants whenever I travel. I believe I have found the best, most authentic and flavorful Thai food available at Bangkok City @ Greenville. The Satay chicken, thai spring rolls, imperial rolls and thai dumplings were delicious. The Pad Gra Prow, Thai style, which is made up of ground chicken, peppers, bamboo shoots, basil, carrots and seasonings, stir fried together with a fried egg on top was exceptional. The pad thai, crab fried rice, volcano shrimp and other dishes I cannot remember were also all great.
The wait staff, hostess (hi Mimi) and owner (hi Joe) are all friendly and personable and happy to make suggestions based on what you like. If you don't see what you want, ask and they will make it for you. Since I was only in Dallas for a week, I only got to eat at this great restaurant twice but I cannot wait to go back and try something new.
Go to Bangkok City @ Greenville, ask for some authentic thai food, and bask in the warmth of the tasty, friendly experience.

The food was awesome and affordable. The papaya salad, tom yum soup, and pad grow prow (ask for Thai Style w/ fried egg) were tasty and very authentic.
Our server was great and really helped up pick out items we would like. The host stopped by our table a few times to offer suggestions as well. It was fun talking to them. It was a little bit of Thailand right here in Dallas.

Ok, so how do you mess up rice if you are an asian restaurant? I mean I've eaten TONS of jasmine rice and it has never been what I would call 'wrong' . This jasmine rice was a disaster! I t was like a college kid made it - the wrong way! Icky, sticky rice. Had to throw most of it away. Sorry, but that is not a good sign for an asian restaurant , thai or otherwise. The curry was actually ok. I mean every other thai place I've been in Dallas is better....but it was ok.

I order delivery from this place and the food was always good. I love this place because its open on holidays, last Monday which is memorial days i decided to take my family out here for dinner and found that the decor is very warm and inviting ( don't be fooled by the outside appearance ). We ordered the tom yum soup , papaya salad, red curry was Amazingly good...:) we love it and we certainly be back.

Ok, let me start by saying that I have been driving past this restaurant for YEARS, and have never stopped in. This was definitely a sad oversight on my part. I stopped in today for a bite on ym way home, and was pleasantly surprised. From the outside, you would not think that you could get more than a few people inside, let alone a full kitchen, but when you walk in the restaurant opens into a very spacious and attractive open floorplan. Now, any time I go to a Thai restaurant, I must have an order of corn patties. Being allergic to peanuts, I cannot have the traditional sauce, but I love the corn patties themselves with the sweet chili sauce. I must say that I was a bit disappointed with the corn patties at Bangkok City. The flavor was very nice, but they were a touch harder than expected and had too much breading for my taste. I also ordered the beef and noodle soup. This soup was phenomenal! I have recently started eating beef again after many years as a vegetarian, and am therefore very picky about the beef I eat. This soup had incredibly tender and tasty beef, and the broth was scrumptious. I am normally not a huge fan of cilantro, but found the perfect amount in this soup to set off all of the other ingredients and truly bring them all to life. I think I will make this restaurant a regular stop for the soup alone. I cannot wait to go back to Bangkok City and start working my way through the rest of their wonderful menu. Definitely a restaurant I would recommend to anyone!

I ordered from here because it's close to my house and on the way home from work. It's just as good as Royal Thai (don't hold me accountable for the rest of the menu because I really only base this on the only Thai dish that I eat--drunken noodles). Plus, I think it is a little cheaper than Royal Thai. Don't be scared by its outside appearance - I was for a while!

I really love this place and i want to come here and be one of their usual customers. The spicy foods on their menu are just to die for if you are one of those people who love to eat spicy food like i do. I enjoyed the spicy papaya salad and the Pad Kee Mow was really good too. I got there pretty early so i got a nice parking spot near the front of the restaurant. Wish i lived near by so i could get it delivered.

The waiters were friendly and always checked on me when i needed something. I would come back again every week, just for that. The prices for the food wasn't bad either, it beat the other restaurants that i have eaten at and the Manager was excellent at checking if we were doing okay. The Pad Thai was just the way i wanted it, I asked for it not to be a little spicy and they made it the way i wanted it. The Tom Yum soup was also really good, compared to the other Thai restaurants that I've eaten at, It reminded me of the time i was in Thailand, on the beach.

1st of all, I'm Thai. I've eaten at many Thai restaurants in Dallas, and although I do find most of them bland and not authentic (almost any Thai will tell you the same), they're usually ok, and I know people like that kind of food, so I keep my mouth shut. However, after trying out Bangkok City today, I had to register at Citysearch and post my 1st review just to point out that this is the WORST Thai food I've ever had.
Let's start with the Pad Thai, the staple of Thai fare. It was noodles and ketchup. Pad Thai often has ketchup as a COMPONENT of the sauce, but I've never seen anyone try to pass off ketchup as the sole ingredient. If you like this Pad Thai, you also like McDonald's food and shouldn't be allowed to post reviews on the internet.
Pad Siew was stunningly bland. Pork was dry.
Chicken Satay -- HOW do you mess up Chicken Satay? -- was incredibly dry and did not have any curry on it. Maybe at 1 point it was marinated in curry, but it appeared they removed all the curry before cooking.
Imperial rolls (soft rice paper wrapped veggies and shrimp) - horrible. Absolutely no taste, even the shrimp.
The highlight of the meal was the complimentary egg roll, which isn't even Thai.
Liberal overuse of carrots. The imperial roll was 25% carrot, and the main vegetable in the Pad Siew was carrot -- I've never even seen carrots in Pad Siew, much less as a main ingredient. Carrots are dirt cheap -- that's the only reason I can see for so many. Shame on them.
My take out order, consisting only of the foods I listed, took FORTY MINUTES
So my point is, if they screwed up one dish, ok, but they screwed up EVERYTHING, and I only ordered the most common Thai-American foods that they should know how to cook well, consistently. So they must always cook like that. The only good part of the experience was that I got the parking spot right in front of the door. Also they offered me a glass of water while I waited.

Parking is tight, but the food and service is well worth it. Order the popular Thai noodle dish, Pad Thai (#46) or the Basil Noodles (#47) with a glass of Thai tea, of course. If you're not greeted or served by Joe. Ask for him. Him and his restaurant crew are definitely aimed to please!

Ok ...this place is good BUT! Before I discuss the But I will tell you this place is CLEAN, and GREAT SERVICE. The but is because the food is not only not authentic it's not really that good. We got the coconut soup and that was ok, but the rest of the food was really not good. In the SPICY Thia fried rice they put hug chuncks of green pepper instead of chili pepers. The Basil noodles was just pad thia with a couple pieces of basil. Overall 1 star....not good food. They need a new chef here --everything else was awesome.

My wife and I had lunch here and it was good. I ordered the beef pad thai and my wife ordered a curry dish. We walked away full and happy. The place was sort of empty, but there were a lot of take out orders happening. I thought the dining room was above average, but nothing flashy. The only tricky thing is the parking is a little tight here and limited along Yale. Keep an eye on that.

This is literally the best Pad Thai I've ever had. Granted, I've never been to Thailand, nor have I sprawled the U.S. in an attempt to sample every Pad Thai made available to willing consumers, however, I have tried various Thai restaurants in Dallas as well as several other cities. This is hands down the BEST Pad Thai I've ever ingested. The Pad Thai at Bangkok City achieves a great balance between sweet and savory. The other items on their menu are excellent as well, but I am the unofficial Bangkok City Pad Thai proponent.

Alas, my search for good Thai delivery will continue unrewarded. I was so excited to find a 5-star review for a Thai restaurant 2 miles from my house, but I doubt I'll be ordering from Bangkok City again anytime soon.
For $40, my girlfriend and I got the Tom Kha Gai soup, a 5-pc dumpling appetizer, the Pork Pad Kee Mow, and the Gra Pow Duck with sticky rice.
If there's one thing this place DOES do well, it's appetizers. The Tom Kha Gai (coconut soup with chicken and mushroom) and the dumplings were both outstanding. I may stop by and grab a LARGE CONTAINER (apparently, Citysearch has a problem with the word p o t) of that soup to-go the next time I get a craving. But the starters were pretty much where my amazement ended.
The $13 ""chef's special"" Gra Prow Duck was a real let-down. I normally love duck, but not when it's breaded and fried (which the menu did not say). This is a terrible way to serve a meat with such a great texture and natural flavor. It was accompanied by little more than white onions, which did not save it. Also, they charged me an additional $2 to upgrade to sticky rice, which I didn't take more than two bites of. It was a cold, solid mass in its container by the time it made it to my door.
My girlfriend was equally unimpressed by her pork entree. The pork, which is normally the most tender of the three main meats in Asian food, was dry and chewy. Neither of us finished our meals.
I wanted so badly to like this place. If the total had been maybe $25-30, I may have just thought, 'At least I got what I paid for.' But it wasn't, and I didn't.
Oh well, at least I know where to satisfy my Tom Kha Gai cravings.
