“Great Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Awesome Thai good but they have gotten so busy, service while dining in or for delivery could be a very long wait. They need to hire more people! I liked to get the sticky rice (or "sweet rice") instead of plain rice for meal. Excellent mango with sticky rice for dessert.

“BEST THAI FOOD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

I have been eating here for 13 years and it is still my favorite place to go in the winter. On a weekend we choose which restaurant to go to and this is our favorite. The food is the best, beats Tara Thai by far. The drunken noodles are good, the chicken basil is amazing. The place renovated a couple years back so now they have a nice bar and T.V. The staff is very nice, we have known them for years. I highly recommend to check this place out because once you do, there is no other Thai place you will want to go.

“A great revisit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We used to have dinner at Bangkok Garden every Friday many years ago. Last Friday, a group of us revisited a BG with a new look. The owner remembered us and welcomed us warmly. We ordered our favorite dishes like Crispy fish with chili and garlic sauce, Bangkok Garden calamari, Pad Thai, Chicken Larb, etc. and, of course, Singha beer. The highlight of the meal was sticky rice with mango which tasted better than we can remember. Everything was wonderful, just like the old days! There were lots of new dishes on the menu which we will have to sample on another visit real soon.

Great food. Authentic flavors. Service can be extremely slow. Be prepared to wait.
