In A Word ........ Refined

So unassuming. The atmosphere is very special. The food of high quality. The service as good as it gets. Four of us enjoyed a pre Theatre dinner and I would highly recommend the Thai Garden for a lovely meal out.

A trip to Paignton now seems to come with an obligatory meal for three (2+1) at this small family run restaurant. On e might find a less expensive venue in the town but we return here because the quality is consistent and the welcome always warm. The menu is not too large which is an advantage and one can ask...

Just returned home from another great evening with my wife at the Thai garden. It really is amazing how consistent the food and general ambience is. We've been coming here for many years now and have always been welcomed like it was our first visit. The value for money remains very competitive when compared with other restaurants around Torbay, but... More

I absolutely love this place, I have visited a few times over the past couple of years and the staff are unfailingly welcoming and helpful. The food is gorgeous and there is a wide range to choose from, I like hotter Thai food and the Jungle Curry is spot on - nice accompanying rice dishes with other sides. Decor is... More

The staff are very helpful and amusing; they always have one liners, it was like being in a comedy show. Very funny, but not offensive. The food was superb. I was surprised that thai fish cakes were not on the menu; but they are, just called something different. The Thai Gardens is a great place, great food and great ambiance

I eat here fairly often and am never disappointed. Both the food and the service are excellent. The waiters know what I drink and also what I usually order. The food is always hot and well presented. The set lunch is very good value and there is the ordinary menu to order from as well. A very pleasant lunch here... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Paignton. The welcome is very warm and genuine. The food is reasonably priced and tasty. For some reason the restaurant is often not full, so no need to book. Just turn up and enjoy the food and service.

We had a starters then, Curry, Stir fry and shared noodles and rice. The portitions were perfect size. One of the best Thai restaurants we've been to. Would recommend... More
