Bangkok 96 in Dearborn is a non-nondescript restaurant off of Telegraph. At first glance its 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 husband 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.
Definitely recommend eating here for some great Thai dishes. Don’t be surprised if the place is packed, the exterior might fool you. Also, the take out line is incessant. Have you been?
P.S. You can read about their new Frozen Food Line
