This is where it all began. In 1983, here at Bangkok Cuisine, diners of metropolitan Detroit were introduced to the mysteries, delights, and taste thrills of Thai cooking.
Every day, Thai cooking excites the curiosity of new restaurant-goers who seek dining with a difference, And year after wear we still serve many of our very first customers Thai cooking perfectly prepared in the true Thai tradition. They come to the restaurant known as "the Mother of All Thai Restaurant" to enjoy the exotic, nutritious, and pleasing tastes of Thailand prepared by master chefs and presented by gracious servers dedicated to your comfort and enjoyment.
Whether you are a long-time Thai food lover or this is your first visit, tell us what you like and we will make suggestions and then prepare dishes to suit your taste. Keep in mind that Thai cuisine will stimulate and excite your five taste senses: sweet, sour, hot, salty, and neutral. These flavors areunique because they bring together ingredients native to Southeast Asia and blend them in the ancient culinary traditions of Thailand's neighbors, India and China.
The fiery qualities of Thai food are well known. But less well known is that you can also select mild and subtle Thai dishes, and soft rice noodle dishes that are satisfying, healthy, and nutritious. For those who enjoy hot or spicy, we mention that the leaf or root of coriander, lemon grass, the fresh leaf and peel of the kaffir lime, kha root (a cousin of ginger with a milder bouquet) and the world's hottest chilies make Thai dining a unique experience.
Flavorful soups are a necessary accompaniment to any Thai meal. Appetizers can be selected to complement and set the stage for the main dishes. A cool and simple conclusion is our house-made Thai coconut icecream, quite refreshing after a meal that has awakened your taste buds.
“Excellent... the best Thai fare I’ve sampled...wonderfully pungent soups and housemade coconut ice cream... all dishes ethnically correct... tempered to the American palate.”
