Very good food matched with excellent service, I will 100% be back good to see independent family run businesses doing well. The food tasted very fresh and with a real mix of well balanced flavours I have tasted lots of Thai food from many different restaurants and this is by far the best. Keep up the good work

Picking the family up from Paignton beach demands a stop-off somewhere and by chance on the way to another known restaurant, we discovered the Thai Garden. Like most Thai places it is family owned and run and this does show in the service and attention to detail. We opted for the Menu D at 27.50 each, but a smaller set... More

We were staying in Paignton for a few days and decided to visit the Thai Garden restaurant. Never having tried Thai food before, we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised from the moment we entered the restaurant as the staff were extremely polite, friendly and efficient . The food was well-presented, hot and delicious.Unfortunately we were... More

After a disappointing experience at another Thai eatery in Paignton earlier in the week, we were very pleasantly surprised by the high quality of the food in Thai Garden Restaurant, and the friendly service. We didn't have a reservation, yet they fitted us in on a Friday night as walk-ins. We ordered Panang chicken curry, red duck curry, massaman beef... More

We had a takeaway from Thai Garden and on collection the waiter was chatty with my two sons. Food was nice and tasty. However the duck was cold and with mots of Thai/Chinese there never seems to be enough pancakes for the duck! Nice enough and would probably order a takeaway again.

We thought this to be our own secret until we started to boast of it to other visitors only to find that it is everyone's top venue.

We ate here on our last night in Paignton and it was definitely the best choice we'd made all week. We didn't book a table but were welcomed like old friends, both guys that were serving were extremely friendly and attentive. I've been to Thailand previously and my partner loves Thai food so we both have high expectations. Thai Garden... More

It's always a good sign when you see actual Thais operating a Thai restaurant. Having been to Thailand many times, I hold a high standard for Thai cuisine and Thai Garden did not disappoint. It was delicious and reasonably priced; would highly recommend it! Portion sizes were a good size and the menu quite extensive.

Attentive service and a tasty meal! Be warned- the sticky rice is very sticky! Reasonably priced and attractive surroundings.

Good atmosphere and nice food with good, friendly service. In a quiet part of town but close to train and bus stations.
