This use to be the only Thai place in town, so.... They are definitely the original Columbia-icon-Thai joint.however, I have had multiple visits where the noodles weren't cooked all the way through. I'll still rate this place high though....the green curry, Phat Thai, and village rolls are to DIE For!

Wow, I'm amazed by all the raving reviews. Honestly, it wasn't disgusting just wasn't great either. I came her for lunch as recommended by a client. I was sorely disappointed. I get that almost all Thai restaurants are not alike but seriously how do you serve soupy Pad Thai. Plus because I ordered a Thai Iced Tea they included complimentary... More

One of the best Thai restaurants I have ever been to. They use fresh vegetables and are flexible oh the heat levels. Last night we tried the Combo Vegetarian Platter. All of the items were delicious! One of my favorite dishes is the Drunken Noodles.

Went here for my parent's anniversary, it's their favorite place to eat at in Columbia, and I was blown away by how amazing the food, and atmosphere was. We even got to chat to the owner for a little bit, who is an extremely nice guy. All-in-all it's an amazing place and I always recommend it to people who are... More

Just had another amazing meal at Bangkok Gardens in Columbia. Fresh taste, with the right amount of heat, and generous portions. We particularly like the lettuce wrapped spring rolls.

Peanut sauce phat Thai was best I've had in last 5 Thai restaurants and nice variation to pad Thai. Very nice atmosphere and worth the stop.

The food and the place are good. But from a Thai perspective I'd rather call it fusion Asian food than Thai food.

Simply the best Thai food in Columbia. I end up eating here at least a couple times a month. I have never had a bad meal, the service is always great and the prices are good. They also give you huge portions which is important to anyone who loves Thai food because day old cold Thai is unbeatable. If you... More

In my book this is simply the best Thai food in Columbia. The food is excellent, the portions are huge (day old Thai food is the best!), the restaurant is clean and inviting, and the staff does an excellent job. It is located right in the heart of downtown Columbia right off of Ninth Street and is perfect people watching... More

During a visit to Columbia, we had lunch at the Bangkok Gradens. Located near the campus of MU, the restaurant offers a relaxed atmosphere with a welcoming staff. The menu selection is varied with a number of curries, pad Thais, noodles, hearty Thai soups, and appetizers. I ordered a Green Curry with a selected spicy level as ordered. It was... More
