Description and review of Bangkok@12 Thai Restaurant located in Downtown Sacramento at 12th and I Streets.
A friend and I recently dined at Bangkok@12 Thai Restaurant prior to attending a performance of Falsettos at the Community Center Theatre. Both of us have patronized Bangkok@12 previously, but it had been some time since I was last there.
Bangkok@12 Thai is a small restaurant with consistent, freshly prepared food. The staff is always welcoming and the service is good.
I know from experience that Bangkok@12 Thai does a very good lunch business and it pays to get there early if you don’t want to wait to be seated. My experience during the evening hours has been there is no difficulty being seated immediately.

I arrived a little bit before 6:00 p.m. and ordered a glass of the house white wine to sip while I waited for my friend to arrive. The pour was generous and the Happy Hour price was right at $2. Note: All beers and selected wines are $2 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. An extra bonus – I noticed immediately that the quality of the white wine served had improved since my last visit.
While I was sipping my wine and looking over the menu I observed a number of patrons picking up take-out orders. Based on dress they appeared to be downtown office workers picking up dinner on their way home.
When my friend arrived she ordered a glass of Bogle Old Vine Zin ($8) to drink as we looked over the menu. It was not long before we each decided what we were going to order. I should also make mention that Bangkok@12 Thai has an extensive vegetarian menu.
My friend ordered the Spicy Green Curry with Chicken (green curry in coconut milk with bamboo shoots, bell pepper and basil) ($11.50). I opted the Spicy Eggplant with Shrimp (eggplant, bell pepper, onions, basil in spicy garlic sauce) ($13.50) and a side order of Brown Rice ($1.95).
It did not take long before we were served, and we had plenty of time to relax and enjoy our dinner as we caught up on the latest news.
As we left, we both agreed that we would have to return to Bangkok@12 Thai for Happy Hour in the near future.
