Thonglor Thai Bistro has garnered rave reviews in its early days, with a five-star rating out of five reviews on Yelp.
E. C., who was the first Yelp to review the new spot on September 27, wrote, "Went in for a few appetizers, larb, fried chicken, papaya salad and fish cake. The fish cakes are the best! I like the food -- not overly salty."
And Yelper Carlos P. noted some expected issues with slow service, but added, "The satay was very good... Price was very reasonable."
