“Terrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

Greasy meals, cold and dry rice, vegetables swimming in soy sauce. Wake up guys, dramatic decor and good service do not suffice to create the illusion of having a good dinner.

“Didn't live up to recommendations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

My husband and I love Thai food and our concierge recommended Thai Garden during our week long stay in Lucerne. We found the service to be fairly slow and were not impressed with our dinners. It was a very expensive meal and for us, did not live up to our expectations.

“ranks with great Thai food anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The dining experience in Thai Garden starts with a dramatic room with great decor and authentic music and continues with warm, attentive service. But the food is what you'll remember most -- start with the Tom Kha Gai or Tom Kha Jay -- these flavorful, rich soups rank with the very best Tom Khas I have had anywhere. The pad thai and curry dishes are also excellent. A good wine list and Singha beer make nice complements to the meal. Were this restaurant back home in California it would be a frequent stop on my restaurant itinerary

“Great ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were received warmly by the restaurant manager, though the room was beautiful, it was way too dark, to walk down the staircase.
Food was good, but nothing exceptional.

“AUTHENTIC THAI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

i thin these people worked really hard to create the ambiance and the feel of sitting in Thailand .

the music played was thai

and to top it all they served THAI BEER SINGHA

food us excellent and absolutely authentic THAI
