2.5 miles north of the San Juan/Grand County border, a new restaurant opened up recently serving up fresh and delicious Thai cuisine, Japanese specialties and Sushi.  Located a quarter of a mile from Spanish Trail Road (Moab Golf Course, The Moab Man Rock Art Site, Steel Bender ATV Trail), Bangkok House sits high on a hill with a grand view of the La Sal Mountains. 

The owner,  Venus Varunun, and her staff immigrated from Thailand to Salt Lake City, Utah and introduced Utahns to Thai cuisine.  Now they have brought the recipes of their homeland to the Moab area (Grand County); and San Juan County residents would enjoy the experience as well, since it's right across the border.  The restaurant has table seating in the center, while booths line the walls; the ever busy Sushi station is in the rear.  The staff are very friendly with bright smiles and attentive attitude; your happiness is their goal.  I was there for lunch and felt very pampered and well cared for; a culinary spa experience in a way.

A skilled Sushi Chef who loves his artistic work.

Open seven days a week, at 11am (4pm on Sunday), the lunch menu consists of Thai specialty items or a Japanese style Bento box.  The Bento box consists of a main menu item, choice of Sushi roll, Gyoza (a type of fried dumpling) and choice of Miso soup or green salad with ginger dressing.  I chose Pad Thai with Shrimp as my main meal item; stir fried rice noodles with ingredients including egg, peanuts, shallots, sprouts, tofu, and a choice of meat.  The Shrimp Tempura Roll was so good, if I had had room, I would have eaten two of those easily.  I did order two Sushi Rolls to go, the Rainbow and the Playboy, which I highly enjoyed at home for my dinner.

The dinner menu is more extensive with appetizers, soups, salads, huge variety of Sushi rolls, Thai and Japanese specialty dishes.  There is something on the menu to please anyone’s taste preferences; even a grand dessert such as deep fried ice cream, or deep fried bananas with ice cream…oh so decadent!

This is Asian cuisine at its finest; you will find yourself making excuses just to go back and try another dish.  By the way, all the menu items are made up fresh; sit back, relax and enjoy the experience! Thinking of something exotic for your next reunion, reception, birthday party or family celebration; Bangkok House can accommodate you.  Give Bangkok House a try and expand your culinary horizons.
