“Thai food does not take centre stage here...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

We went into the restaurant, thinking that the price for the buffet was reasonable, expecting authentic Thai food. When the waiter asked us for our drink order, we felt that the drinks were overpriced. We decided not to order drinks, but the "boss" came to inform us that a drink order was necessary with the buffet. (One small soft drink accounts for 16% of the overall price). We felt it was not fair that we were pressured into ordering the drinks.

We decided to be magnanimous and put that behind us, and proceeded to help ourselves to the food. Thai food clearly did not take centre stage here, there was sushi, vietnamese wraps, salad bars, but extrememly limited variety of Thai food.

The rice was partially uncooked, the vietnamese wrap was plain revolting, with all sorts of raw vegetable tastes coming together to form a real nightmare. Sushi was crunchy (not supposed to be) and the fruit salad was pure fat.

Please, please, go and try Thai garden, so that you know what to avoid in the future.

Regards,
Chanun Uthaiwattananon

“Good food, stressful environment.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We took the buffet. The place was very full up and it is clear this is an eat fast, get out, restaurant. There was very little space between tables so we had to really squeeze in. However, the service was friendly and quick, and the food (buffet) was excellent. The veggies were fresh and nice, and the meat and fish courses were tasty. Too much deep fried in my opinion, would have liked some more variety there. All in all good food, fair price but very noisy and cramped.

“Lively Thai Restaurant with friendly staff and great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

I've been here several times. It's probably the best Thai food in Aalborg right now. I like it for the large selection of fresh food, including barbecue, sushi and salads, and for the lively athmosphere and friendly staff. I've been there with my kids who love the place, staff is very attentive towards children. Prices are very reasonable, many young people visit this place to go out and have a good time. Not a place for romantic dinner, but absolutely great value for money.

“Good value, friendly, and reasonable quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2011

Because you can select the raw ingredients and have them cooked for you whilst you wait, this buffet style restaurant offers fresh and wholesome cuisine at a very reasonable price. The preprepared buffet food is also well presented, and tasty. Service is friendly and efficient, and the decor whilst not being luxurious, is perfectly acceptable and clean. A good refuelling stop at a decent price point.
