“Wonderful Thai restaurant”
Review of Bangkok Grill

It's hard to believe that Covington has TWO Thai restaurants and I like them both. The food and service at Bangkok Grill is consistently good. They will make a dish for you even if it's not on the menu. I love larb and they happily make it for me, even though it's not on the menu. But as good as their Thai dishes are, their "Chef Specialities" are fantastic. I think their Angel Hair Shrimp pasta is my favorite pasta dish anywhere. My friend usually orders the Teriyaki Steak and it is wonderful too. What more can you ask for? Very good food with very good service. The shrimp crisps they give you as you wait for your food are tasty and addictive too.

Everything I have had here is delicious! Especially Rama King with extra peanut sauce! Staff is very friendly and service is good! Have been many times with coworkers and never a problem.

Bangkok Grill is my favorite restaurant in this area. Sam is an excellent chef and Jee is the perfect host. This is truly a family owned and operated enterprise. The Poonpoolpoke's take great pride in their culinary skill and love to share the flavors of their Thai homeland. They will explain the makeup of any dish for you and will modify it any way you like. Take the time to talk with them and you will have a wonderful dining experience. I have never had a less than great dining experience here.

For the absolute best in Thai food, visit our favorite Bangkok Grill on Hwy. 278, Covington, Georgia. Family-owned and operated, the Bangkok Grill offers authentic & highly nutritious Thai cuisine. The Poonpoolpoke Family has been in the business for 40 years & they serve up the most exquisite dishes in their quaint, little restaurant.

Some of our recommendations include the juicy “Pad Khing” offering a choice of succulent meats (although you MUST try the fork-tender beef), with shredded ginger, garlic, mushrooms and bell pepper in a delectable brown gravy. Or sample their superb "Spicy Basil Grouper", pan-fried & topped with a tasty blend of onion, bell pepper & mushroom in a spicy, basil pottage. For the ultimate taste treat, try the meal I am compelled to order, “Maryland Crab Cakes”, a mouth-watering pair of scrumptious & hearty crab patties, enhanced with a delicate red pepper sauce. For the crowning accompaniment, include a bowl of Bangkok’s creamy, blue she-crab soup. Your highly enjoyable dinner will be complete with a fresh house salad of healthy greens, red onions, tomatoes & croutons, splashed with a homemade, full-bodied, ginger dressing.

I would like to leave you with a few surprises, but it's difficult not to rave. Throughout the years, I’ve dined on the most wonderful fare from Chef Sam, his gracious wife, Jee & their delightful Family. The attention to detail is evident, from the delicious Thai iced tea; to the wondrous assortment of soups (“Tum-Yum” is a delectable masterpiece & the “Tomato Bisque” is a splendid twist on tomato bliss); to the nice variety of tender rice & zesty spring rolls; to the luscious entrées. I am especially drawn to the tangy subtlety of their traditional “Pad Thai.” This marvelous dish of sumptuous noodles, stir-fried to perfection w/green onion, bean sprouts, crushed peanuts & a dash of “sweet & pungent” sauce is a celebration for the taste buds.

In the mood for something lighter one day, I ordered a simple dish of stir-fried vegetables. To my utter delight, I was presented with the most fantastic combination of sautéed vegetables I’ve ever had the pleasure of placing in my mouth. The plate brimmed with a savory mix of steaming bamboo shoots, Thai eggplant, bell pepper, carrots, broccoli, mushroom, cabbage & basil, accented with a unique & tantalizing Panang curry sauce, flowing over a heady bed of brown rice. Such is each & every dining experience at the Grill. They meet & exceed all expectations.

Bangkok Grill is closed only on Mondays & is not easily seen from Hwy. 278, due to its location. As soon as you pass Kentucky Fried Chicken on your right, put on your right turning signal. The exotic Bangkok Grill is snuggled down next to Advanced Auto Parts. You'll be greeted by the lovely Jee who will usher you into a cozy, tastefully-decorated dining room, filled with exquisite aromas & the smiling faces of satisfied patrons. Ah, and that is just the beginning of your perfect, Thai-inspired evening of festive fun and flavorful food. Tell them Diane sent you down their lamp-lit path!
