Bangkok Express, Argyll & 99th, Edmonton

Anybody been? Was just in there and had pad thai, panang curry, and thai bbq chicken with coconut rice. A small side of green papaya salad served with the bbq chicken was awesomely sweet/sour/salty and refreshing.

Friendly Thai staff (at least they were speaking Thai to each other, so I assume...). LIGHTING FAST service - with street food being so prominent in Thailand it's not surprising they've mastered the art of quick preparation. Decor is limited to some Thai travel posters on otherwise bare walls and some nice tropical plants. But this place isn't trying to be that kind of restaurant. It's all about the food here, and they probably do a lot of their business as take-out. Limited selection on the menu (this is presumably how they keep things speedy) but the handful of dishes probably encompass 75% of all the Thai dishes typically ordered in Edmonton anyways. And it's cheap too. No dish over 10 bucks.
