Little Bangkok in the Strip is a stalwart Thai restaurant that serves up a wide variety of noodles, curries, stir-fries, soups, and appetizers with classic Thai flavors executed perfectly. We recently ordered takeout from Little Bangkok and were pleasantly surprised with the high quality and well-balanced flavors.

A Wonderful Thai Spread at Little Bangkok in the Strip

Thai Spread from Little Bangkok in the Strip

We started with some appetizers – the crispy veggie Bangkok rolls and the tom yum soup. The crispy veggie Bangkok rolls were mini fried spring rolls stuffed with cabbage, carrots, mushrooms, and glass noodles and served with a sweet pineapple dipping sauce. At first we wished they were full-sized rolls instead of mini, but once we started devouring them we were thankful for the portion control.

Spring Rolls

The tom yum soup had hints of lemongrass, kaffir lime, and fish sauce. We just ordered it with veggies but you can also choose to add tofu, chicken, shrimp, seafood, or fish. The veggies were crisp and not really cooked which was a little weird; next time we would probably go for one of the seafood options.

Don't Skip the Seafood Curry

Red Curry with Seafood

Red curry is our go-to curry and the way in which we usually judge new Thai restaurants. We ordered the seafood red curry which had a nice balance of sour, salty, spicy, and sweet, although it was slightly less sweet than what we usually make at home. It had a good coconut milk creaminess.

But what we were totally blown away by was the amount of seafood in it. In addition to eggplant, bamboo shoots, and bell peppers, it was overflowing with scallops, calamari, mussels, and shrimp. Not only that, the seafood was fresh tasting and super juicy and tender.

Pad See Ew from Little Bangkok in Pittsburgh

Pad see ew is another of our favorite Thai dishes, and we tried it here with pork. Wide rice noodles were stir fried with veggies in a sweet soy sauce.

The pork was a little bit overcooked and dry, but other than that we really enjoyed the dish. The sauce was not as sweet as some pad see ew, but that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. We also appreciated the substantial amount of bean sprouts, broccoli, and carrots in the dish to make us feel good about ourselves.

If you're looking for some high quality and delicious Thai takeout, you really can't go wrong with the options at Little Bangkok.
