Bangkok Golden Restaurant Review: Finding a restaurant serving Laotian food should not surprise anyone familiar with DC’s metro area, with its dozens and dozens of ethnic communities. What should be surprising is this: Bangkok Golden, a small Thai restaurant, has become a magnet for intrepid foodies who want to enjoy one of Asia’s least known and most exotic cuisines. You will find Thai dishes, of course, but also appetizers such as Lao spicy sausage (reputedly the favorite of a long-ago Lao ruler), shrimp cakes with Lao curry, and Lao curry puffs. We can recommend what follows, too --- the curries, grills and steamed dishes. But for those with an ever-curious palate, the best dish is the Lao crispy rice salad, filled with layers of flavors and textures. Lunch buffets available daily; dinner buffets, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
