Our, May 2010, lunch at Bangkok 54 provided only OK atmosphere, food, and service. The atmosphere is adequate, not too modern or hackneyed. The crispy duck with panang sauce for $16 was a pricey for only an OK dish. The panang sauce was good; however, the duck was chewy and not fresh from the fryer. Also, the duck flavor was hidden by the batter. The Tom Yum soup with three shrimp for $5.25 had good flavor but contained too many raw tomato cubes. The best lunch item was the drunken noodles with pork, which for $8 included a slender spring roll. Though not as good as Tommy Thai in Springfield, VA, the drunken noodles had good flavor and plenty of pork, but was not spicy enough even for American standards. Pros: Good drunken noodle lunch special. Flavorful tom yum soup. Free parking in back. Quick service. Cons: Barely warm $16 crispy duck. Spring rolls that provided more wrapper than filling, No drunken noodles with beef, only with pork, tofu, or chicken.

Good food in an odd location. Definitely worth going once to try it out. The food was very good and the price was just about right.

Bangkok 54 is a very good Thai restaurant, suffering only in comparison to Thai Squares former excellence. BKK54 is a much more refined space, and the food is nearly as good. I really like the crispy pork belly, and the green curry has a nice amount of fire. I take clients here, and even the most cautious eater can find a winner in this menu.

Atmosphere is superb, crowded during dinner time but the lounge - part of the restaurant is also a great place to hang out while waiting for your table. Staff are always accommodating and friendly. Food is the best in town so far.........parking might be a challenge but it's worth going. Their grocery store next door carries all oriental stuff I need so I love it. Don't blame me if I go there every weekend. Yum......Yummm...yummmmm.

This Thai place got voted in 100 best restaurants in Washingtonian Magazine and also in the Washington Post. Come and see it yourself, you will see how wonderful this place is. Personally, I love this place.
