A few weeks ago the Little Bangkok in Forest Hills had its grand reopening. After being closed for remodeling for a great deal of time, the restaurant debuted once more. The Thai food restaurant added diversity to food options in the Forest Hills community. It’s no doubt that the people were thrilled as the restaurant was filled on their re-opening day.

The menu is just one page front and back, but don’t be fooled. There are a variety of options to choose from. However, everything on the menu is Thai food, so there are no chicken tenders to save people who don’t like Thai. The food is delicious and authentic, delivered warm and just off the stove. The appetizers are abundant and held us off until the main course came.

The portion sizes of the main courses are decent which is good because the prices at Little Bangkok are somewhat expensive. The wait for our main course was a lot longer than we hoped for. That may be due to the fact that the restaurant was full. For an appetizer, we ordered crab wontons. They were amazing. I highly recommend them as a starter for your meal.

For the main course, I ordered Sweet-N-Sour Breaded Chicken. The chicken itself was delicious, however, it came with a lot of vegetables so there wasn’t as much chicken as I thought there would’ve been. My mom ordered the Pad Thai which I took a few bites of. It was very good, and I would recommend that over the chicken.

The staff was very welcoming. We were quickly seated and asked for our drink order. Once the drinks came, the appetizer and main course orders were taken. The staff always seemed happy to be serving us and were constantly checking in to see how we were doing. The setting of the restaurant is very cozy as well. The lights are dimmed and the tables are set in a very organized way. The restaurant is very clean and tucked away in a strip mall of the heart and soul of the Forest Hills bubble. Looking around, everyone in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying each other’s company and their food.

Little Bangkok is open every day but Sunday. Monday through Friday they are open 11 am to 9 pm, and on Saturday from 4 am to 9 pm. If you aren’t feeling like dining in, you can also order take out. Catering is also an available option.

Little Bangkok has won the admiration of many with its authenticity and hospitality. Although the wait for food might trickle on, the food itself makes up for it. I recommend that you give this cozy restaurant a visit!
