I've visited the family run Thai Garden a few times over the last 3 years, and every time I walk away satisfied. They have a big menu with plenty of choice. A friend's wife is a strict vegetarian and she says they have a great selection for her, which is very refreshing.
This last time I had one of the set menus (like most times before!). You need two or more people to share these. They are great value and the perfect way to try different things. The starters are a variety with satay chicken, Thai fish cakes plus a couple of other things with the obligatory pretty flower shaped carrot. Always feel a bit guilty eating that, it's so cute.
We got the feast without the soup, so we went on to main courses. Plenty of fresh, tasty food. Beef, chicken, vegetables in the separate dishes with some rice in a pot. Everything is served in authentic crockery and cutlery. Good sized portions which are not bland, and more than enough for those sharing.
The set menu comes with a choice of deserts and Thai tea. By the time you finish you've eaten quite a bit, and it arrives at great value, which ever choice meal you go for. Service is efficient and friendly, with more drinks arriving promptly. I love the Chiang beer! Very crisp from the bottle.
All in all, I've never been disappointed with the Thai Garden, and definitely prefer it over the more expensive and 'generic' Thai Orchid, which isn't such good value. Will always be going back - it helps all our friends love it too!
