Amazing!

I cannot express enough how much of a wonderful surprise Bangkok Garden is. Thai food is my favorite and I have been painfully disappointed in many of the restaurants in the DC area. This place has amazingly attentive service and the food is near the best I've ever had. What wonderful curry!

I like this place better every time I visit. The food is really nice and the servers are friendly. The ginger chicken remains my favorite dish. They do a nice mango sticky rice for dessert. The restaurant interior is ok, but the table at the front has a not-so-nice view of the adjacent alley. The only significant drawback is that... More

You can always tell if they serve authentic Thai when there are mainly Thai clients. All the staff is Thai and it is fairly busy, at least at 6 pm on Wednesday evening. Nothing fancy with respect to the decor, but the menu is thorough and covers a wide range of Thai cuisine. They are careful to mark the really... More

We were hungry when we got there and wolfed down a lot of different Thai staples including chicken satay, avocado and peanut curry with shrimp (must try), pineapple fried rice, chicken with basil and chillies, and pad thai. Each and every dish was perfect. Service was fine, and the ambience is nice enough. Prices were mid-range, but the food was... More

I was very disapointed at the takeout dishes we received form this restaurant. Although i called 2 hours ahead the food wasn´t ready. The chicken, rogan josh and shrimp dishes came with virtually no meat. The restaurant was filled with people so maybe the food served on location is better. I dont recommend takeout here.

We go there with my colleagues once a week. The food is tasty and sufficiently spicy. Service is always great and friendly. We usually share a Tom Ka or Tom Yum soup, then go for a main curry dish. Everything I tried, I would eat again.

We stayed with friends in Bethesda. I wanted Thai food, they recommended Bangkok Garden, it was wonderful. We shared the crispy whole fish for an appetizer, then shared a green curry, pad Thai, an a red curry with beef. It was all excellent. I can't wait to be back in the DC area again - we will go back!

We have eaten at this restaurant many times and I must say I have never had a bad meal at this establishment. The service is always great and the owner and staff are very friendly. Its been around for years and I understand why. I recommend the crispy whole fish with hot chili and garlic sauce if you like seafood,... More

We go here ALL THE TIME! The food is great and the service is outstanding. We usually start out with Tom Ka soup with shrimp. For the main course dishes we go for the Thai Green Curry with Beef, Red Panang Curry with Chicken and Thai Fried Rice with Pineapple (they serve a GREAT version here). Parking can be challenging...
