Pad Thai restaurant at 1170 Chapel Street is my go-to restaurant for Thai food in the New Haven area. Within a short walking distance from Pad Thai, there are several Thai restaurants. I've always swayed my friends from dinning at those restaurants because I've tried all of them and decided that Pad Thai is by far the best for true... More

This is perhaps the best value meal I have had in the US. Just $7 for a truly tasty lunch of duck green curry with rice. I've just got back from Thailand and have been studying Thai cooking and the green curry was authentic. It was so good I went back the next day for the Mango Curry which also... More

4 of us came for dinner and had a fairly good sampling of the menu. In general it was good. Also nice to see a bottle of wine for $20 on a wine list. The waitress was either unfamiliar with the menu or her English was very poor. Maybe both. Either way, I couldn't get some relatively simple questions answered... More

I don't care if you don't like Thai food. YOU WILL LOVE THIS PLACE! none of the food is 'weird' or too different. All the sauces are amazing and they have a very wide selection of non spicy items. I have never had such good food in my life. If you go to New Haven you NEED to eat here.... More

One of the great things about a University town is that it attracts reasonably priced eateries. There are quite a few in the streets surrounding Yale Rep, and my wife and I have frequented most of them: we have seen many performances at the Rep, and it's rather pleasant to 'make an evening of it' by having a simple dinner...

My entire family ate here last night and I am pleased to say that no one got sick. The food was poorly prepared, there were several mixups with our orders, and the bathroom filth should have closed the place down. If anyone in your party has dietary issues I recommend that you look elsewhere. Confusion in the kitchen does not... More

First visit here, not sure about going back. Reasonably priced, friendly if not quick service, good location would be reasons to go back. I don't have a lot of Thai experience but my friend does and she said the food was passable but she wasn't sure she'd go back. I had the Tom Yum (hot and sour) soup and it... More

This was our first visit to Bangkok Gardens, and it will likely be our last. We ordered two appetizers - summer rolls and vegetable dumplings. The summer rolls while tasty, were lightly filled. Most summer/fresh rolls we have had at other Thai restaurants are well filled and tightly rolled. These had little rice, and were mostly filled with lettuce. Some... More

We went there because of the reviews on tripadvisor. Unfortunately we can't agree. The food was okay but not special. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere average.
