Lovely Thai restaurant in Paignton

My partner and I went looking for somewhere for dinner last night. We had seen Thai Garden earlier in the day when we were out shopping so thought we'd give it a go. The decor inside was beautiful and we were greeted warmly. We opted for set menu B which came with a starter selection (ribs, fish... read more

Friends took us here following their past experience of never being let down on both food and customer service. Thai Garden obviously know how to achieve a balance of being attentive but not over the top. We had booked as this was a birthday celebration but we knew the restaurant was popular. The restaurant is situated in an older part... More

Found this restaurant just around the corner from the Theatre. Really enjoyed the food and there was plenty to choose from.

We returned to this restaurant on Wednesday, having last visited about 6 months ago. We were delighted to find that the food was as good as ever! Very free and tasty. The four of us had the Garden Banquet which at about £26 per head is not cheap. However, we all agreed it was value for money as the food... More

I've lived in Torbay all my life, and no Thai restaurant I've been to quite matches this one. The curries are my favourite, and the staff are just so friendly and always bring a few laughs to the table.

Just moved back to Devon and in the process of finding some good food, this Thai restaurant has some bonuses. Firstly, the food was superb, I ordered an additional dish and asked for it to be prepared like real Thai (very hot), this was no trouble at all. All the dishes were good quality. These people also have an unusually... More

We knew that we wanted Thai food on our first night in Paignton and we originally went in search of Jasmine's but having come across the Thai Garden first (in the rain!) our decision was made. We liked what we saw peering in through the window and we were not disappointed once we went inside. Pleasant friendly waiters couldn't do... More

I went here for lunch with my wife and my elderly dad and stepmum, and we had a delightful time. The £5.95 set lunch is very tasty and ridiculously good value — a starter of chicken satay plus small rib plus spring roll plus dips, and a choice of six mains (I had an excellent pork dish with fresh chilli,...

Came because our 1st choice was fully booked; never again. Large portions here means very poor quality. Food in order: Prawn crackers - disgusting chemical taste; thai salad - mostly same as English salad dripping in watery peanut gravy; chicken satay - rubber chicken, obviously very worst quality meat; tofu curry - deep fried tofu soaked in oil that oozes...
