Fantastic!

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... read 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...

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!

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
