@Bangkok, Kingsland - Restaurant Review

Vibe

Bustling and energetic, with brick lined walls crammed with cosmopolitan images of modern Bangkok. There’s not a stuffed elephant to be seen, and when you’re seated near others in the slim space, it’s a pretty good approximation of dining in the Thai capital.

Service

Warm and friendly from the hip young crew of Thais running this space.

Drink's List

Unlicensed at present, but @Bangkok is soon to have Thai beers like Singha, Leo and Chang on offer. In the interim, try one of the mammoth fruit smoothies ($7). If you’re lucky, when you leave they might give you a voucher for a free drink along the road at The Kingslander.

Highlights

The duck panang curry ($14.50), crammed with breast meat, and surrounded by a sweetish peanutty sauce. Also good is the larb gai (chicken salad $11.50), punctuated with zingy fresh herbs and the zesty chilli burst of cuisine from Thailand’s northeastern Issan province. All non duck- or seafood-mains are just $11.50, and sides are just $4. Try the excellent prawn cakes.

The Bottom Line

Part restaurant, and part convenient takeaways, @Bangkok has excellent Thai food and a funky ambience at prices barely above a suburban food hall.

A Reason To Return

To try @Bangkok’s versions of other classic Thai dishes at bargain prices. Already we’re lining up a few cold Chang beers with the crispy fried snapper or the Massaman curry from southern Thailand.
