Bangkok Pavilion Restaurant in Overland Park, Kansas has the only Thai buffet in metropolitan Kansas City. The large selection changes from day to day, but my favorite items include the yellow curry chicken, Thai orange chicken (lightly battered boneless chicken breast in a flavorful orange sauce), and the Three Kings Mushroom (three kinds mushrooms from Asia sautéed in garlic brown sauce). At only $7.29 Bangkok Pavilion has one of the best, high quality lunch bargains in Overland Park.
In the evening, the large menu makes choosing supper difficult. Over 90 items, with most entrees priced about $11-14. Bangkok Pavilion offers the spicy items with 5 levels of "hot," from mild to "can you take it."
Bangkok Pavilion was opened in 1987 by Waawwadee Wathanacharoen. The current owners, Jessica and Davis Chaoung took over the restaurant in 1991. Following a fire in 2005, Bangkok Pavilion was closed for about a year, but they came back better than ever.
Bangkok Pavilion is open seven days a week, with the buffet available 11AM-2:30PM Monday - Saturday (11-3 Sunday).
Just west of Metcalf, across from Metcalf South Mall.
