The exterior of the restaurant is also decorated with teak carving, especially the front doorway which is covered by an elaborate carved teak roof. The entry area is dominated by a huge carved teak cashier counter beside which is a waiting area composed of a group of upholstered carved teak armchairs and a sofa grouped around a coffee table. Throughout the front of the restaurant several wooden display cases showcase a variety of exquisite art objects ranging from delicate tea sets to two large ceramic angels imported from Thailand. It is Nimit’s wish that her guests experience a lush Thai decor while they relish the authentic Thai cuisine that her restaurants offer.
The cooks at Bangkok Thai Cuisine are Thai, and the servers are Asian men and women clothed in traditional Thai attire. The menu features seventy-three items ranging from such traditional appetizers as fried wontons and spring rolls to a variety of soups and salads, fried rice, six kinds of curry, and traditional a la carte dishes such as Broccoli Oyster Sauce and Sweet and Sour with chicken, beef, or pork. The close proximity of the Gulf of Mexico allows Nimit to offer thirteen seafood entrees in addition to five noodle dishes which allow a choice of chicken or shrimp. In addition, Bangkok Thai Cuisine offers seven vegetarian entrees and a group of special entrees, such as Special Panang Curry with chicken or shrimp and Mee Krob Laad Nah with chicken.
In the interest of following the guidelines of the American Heart Association, which recommends a diet low in sodium and cholesterol, Bangkok Thai Cuisine uses no animal fats and no MSG and allows guests to substitute brown rice for the traditional jasmine rice. This approach to healthy eating coupled with the tangy blend of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavors used to enhance the taste of the best and freshest foods makes Bangkok Thai Cuisine an adventure in fine dining. It is no wonder that the restaurant has been named the Best Ethnic Restaurant in Mobile for five years in a row.
