Good but pricey

I was attending a conference in Columbia and I am a lover of good Thai or Vietnamese food. So I gave Bangkok Gardens a try. Had the Coconut curry at heat level three. I should have went to the Thai level of heat. It was good but had too many bamboo shoots in it for my taste. I felt at... read more

Food was good. Service was poor. Management and server treated me as if I was taking them away from their conversation. I was one of only three tables. If I go here again, it will be takeout.

We have been frequenting Bangkok Gardens since they came to Columbia. My husband and I love good Thai food. This restaurant has atmosphere, the bar a good selection, wait staff very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, they have tweaked the soup we love and put potatoes in it. We will go back but not for the soup.

This is our restaurant of choice whenever we are in Columbia and since we love Thai food, and I am gluten intolerant, we gravitate to Bangkok Gardens, which provides gluten free options. The food has been good and service has been good except on two occasions. On those two occasions, the waitress was very flip about the gluten free menu... More

For a Thai restaurant they have managed to avoid the "mass produced" rut that many Thai restaurants fall into. The menu offers many variations of Thai favorites. Wait staff are familiar with the nuance of each dish and strive to serve exactly what customers are looking for. The food is freshly prepared and hot when it gets to the table.... More

The food here is tasty, although far from genuine Thai. Most of the menu items have the names of Thai dishes, but that's where the similarity ends. This food is best thought of as Asian fusion. However, if you want genuine Thai food, think about alternatives.
