Bangkok Alley Restaurant Review: Bangkok Alley’s downtown location --- one of the independently owned restaurant’s three Memphis branches --- caters to both the business lunch crowd and those wishing to enjoy a nice evening meal before hitting the entertainment district. Although most of the dishes would be classified as Thai, there is a fusion element to the restaurant. For example, the Thai dip appetizer (ground chicken cooked with tomato, chili and herbs) is served with Indian naan for dipping. A variety of regionally named sushi rolls (try the “Memphis” with shrimp tempura, crab, mayo, eel and cucumber) stand alongside the traditional Thai curries. The decent wine selection includes some organic options. For dessert, try the mango pie, a flan-like cheesecake served with mango sorbet and sweet coconut milk. The dining room is small but sophisticated, and the entrées are attractively plated.
