Even More Fun Playing with Lunch at Bangkok Thai

I can't say enough nice things about Bangkok Thai, 5359 Mayfield Road, Lyndhurst OH (440) 684-1982. In fact, I've said a few of them here and here. It is starting to become a weekly lunch pilgrimage. I can always count on Bangkok for fresh, crisp vegetables and amazing sauces that even make tofu taste like something!

I can't decide which beverage I like better - Thai Iced Tea:

Or Lemon Thai Iced Tea:

I suspect that the latter, which is sans coconut milk, is healthier. And it packs a unique and delicious flavor.

Recent lunches have included:

Pad Thai

This dish was very tasty - and they did not spare the fish sauce! Even the frozen shrimp were palatable (no chemically smells or tastes).

Thai String Bean Curry

This spicy, nutty sauce brought the tofu chunks to life and complimented the crispy green beans, snow peas, and sweet peppers. The nuttiness was provided by a combination of the cashews you can see in the photos and ground peanuts in the sauce. Yum.

Broccoli Stir Fry with Tofu

I asked them to hold the mushrooms and make it *** spicy. It was perfect - redolent of fresh garlic and peppers, with crunchy vegetables to counterpoint the soft tofu.

Bangkok Thai was well attended at lunchtime today, but most of the time, it is pretty empty. So, once again, I entreat my Cleveland neighbors to patronize this tasty, reasonably priced restaurant - you won't regret it!


  1. Thanks for the lunch spot recommendation. Based on your review we stopped by today for lunch and LOVED it!

  2. Bangkok Thai is a wonderful family run restaurant. I eat there often. I can honestly say that I have loved everything that I have tried. Do yourself a favor and give it a try. You will not be sorry!
