Bangkok 96 in Dearborn

Bangkok 96 in Dearborn is a non-nondescript restaurant off of Telegraph. At first glance, it’s not a place that stands out, but then you notice something, the parking lot is always full. And I mean always. Since my usual Thai spot had recently closed, I needed a new place to feed my Pad Thai and Sweet & Sour addictions.

We started off with some fried tofu and some spring rolls. We never order any appetizers, the plates here are huge, but we wanted to give them a try. I could live without them.

My friend is absolutely obsessed with their Pad Pak. It is umami-rich with a soy-based sauce and delicious assorted veggies. He loves to order it with shrimp.

I decided to customize their yellow curry dish. I added pineapple, shrimp, and baby corn to the potatoes and eggplant. My favorite since then is just potatoes, shrimp, and pineapple in the delicious spicy yellow curry.

The Pad Thai is great here. Perfectly cooked noodles, nutty and surprisingly light.

All the dishes other than the noodles come with white rice.

Bangkok 96 Restaurant in Dearborn – Reviews

The restaurant is located in Dearborn, Michigan. As a food lover, I had the pleasure of dining there, and I must say, it was an exceptional experience. The restaurant has a modern yet cozy ambiance that instantly puts you in a relaxed state of mind. The lighting is just right, not too bright nor too dim, and the décor is simple yet elegant.

The menu at Bangkok 96 is extensive and offers a wide range of Thai dishes. The food is authentic, fresh, and bursting with flavor. I highly recommend starting with the Thai spring rolls, which are crispy and filled with savory ingredients. Pad Thai is a classic Thai dish and one of the most popular dishes at Bangkok 96. The noodles are perfectly cooked, and the balance of sweet, sour, and savory flavors is just right. The Tom Yum soup, a spicy and sour soup with lemongrass, is a must-try for anyone who loves bold flavors.

One of the standout dishes for me was the Yellow curry dish. The curry is made with tender chunks of beef, potatoes, and peanuts and is served with fragrant jasmine rice. The curry is creamy, savory, and has a subtle hint of sweetness. It’s definitely one of the best Massaman curries I’ve had in a while. Another standout dish was the green papaya salad. The salad is made with shredded green papaya, tomatoes, and roasted peanuts and is tossed in a spicy and tangy dressing. It’s a refreshing dish that pairs well with rich and savory curries.

The service at Bangkok 96 is impeccable. The waitstaff is friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu. The restaurant also offers takeout and delivery services, which is a plus for those who want to enjoy delicious Thai food from the comfort of their own home.
