Best Thai food in the entire area! Service is fantastic and Ricky genuinely cares about every detail with the food and drinks. Once you eat here, you will not consider going to any other Thai place. It's a phenomenal experience!

This restaurant has been at the same location for over 30 years. It has "THE" Thai reataurant in Bethesda. The owner Ricky is usually there to greet you and make sure everything is to your liking. I have big parties there all the time, as many as 50 people in nthe back room and they handle it very well. It... More

We had the roasted duck and pineapple fried rice with shrimp and pork. Both were very delicious and well prepared. The duck was very moist, with crispy skin. It came with white rice. The fried rice was also very good - large shrimp and the pineapple tasted very fresh. Service was excellent - best we've had in a long time.... More

I planned lunch with a friend in downtown Bethesda for this past Saturday. She suggested Thai and so I did a little research to find the top-rated - my friend's a professional chef. Looking at Trip Advisor, Urban Spoon and Yelp I kept seeing the same restaurant at the top of the list - Bangkok Garden. So, that's where we... More

I am picky about thai restaurants as a DC resident I am spoiled with abundance of decent thai places to eat. But Bangkok Garden has the best menu so far I have come across. There is a large variety of items that are not usually on menu in many thai restaurants. Service was good and food tasted great. Will definitely... More

Went here for lunch. We ordered chicken cashew and crabmeat fried rice. Both dishes lacked flavor, it seemed like they were missing spices. We were the only diners in the restaurant--- not sure if thats a sign. I don't think we will be returning.

Lived in the area about ten years ago and was just back on business. Stopped here for lunch and the restaurant has been updated and nicely appointed. The menu remains true to Thai cuisine, and the Tom Yum Kai and drunken noodle has not changed in the years I have been away ... It remains phenomenal!

The lunches are indifferent here. However, if you go in the evening, and let the waiter know that you are comfortable with as much heat as they can put in your dishes ("make me cry ...") the chef will provide you with a memorable meal. Definitely worth exploring beyond the usual confines of green/red/Panang curries. Crispy catfish with green peppercorns... More

Nice Thai restaurant that also has a fair number of dishes that I'm more used to seeing on a Chinese menu. Friendly, efficient service. Has local and Thai/Chinese beers. With the more Chinese dishes, it has a wide range of vegetarian options, and it appears that the Thai curries could be veggie (though I didn't ask about whether they would... More
