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...

Decided to go here at short notice on a Saturday evening during half term with my son who chose it. We've been before but not for a a good few months. We were going out fairly early as he's only 7.....so we turned up by 6:30 but had not booked ! On arrival I could see every table was reserved... More

Ate here on a Saturday night but got there early. All tables were reserved and we thought that may be for appearances. This proved wrong as the restaurant soon filled up and was full by early evening. This did not affect the service we had which was excellent. There were five waiters/waitresses doing an excellent job. We had the set... More

Lovely meal here, very Thai surroundings and interesting owner/waiter! Although we didn't see it we did hear that the owner sometimes does a song and dance routine! Interesting! Food was excellent though so go anyway!

Visited Thai Garden last Friday evening about 5.30 on the spur of the moment. So glad we did. We had a lovely meal. The staff are very attentive and friendly. Will definitely visit again
