Delicious!

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... read more

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...

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.
