A staple of Calgary's Stephen Avenue: delicious, authentic Thai food in a cool and original atmosphere. The buffet lunch is good but lacks the quality of the a la carte menu. Also, some poor wine and hit-and-miss service.

The ambiance is typicly Thai. I took the coconut soup with shrimp and it was an amazing soup. It was a quietly night I think the serving could been better !

To say this place was sad is an understatement. The welcome was univiting and we wished we had followed our instincts and left. There was no atmosphere and I can't believe how disinterested the staff were. Our starters of spring rolls which were tasteless and chicken satay which were ok. Our main course of chicken and pineapple and beef masaman... More

Warm design, good service, delicious and well priced. The fresh spring rolls were generous in size and light like a salad alternative. The small coconut soup is too small. So order large next time ;-)

There are not many Thai restaurants in the downtown core that are reasonably priced and good food to match. Rose Garden has been in Calgary for 10 years so the menu is fairly extensive and there is lots to choose from. Food portions are large compared to most. Ginger chicken could feed four. Curries can be tuned to match your... More

It is too bad that TA doesn't allow for half ratings. This place is definitely better than the 3 would indicate, but not quite up to a 4 star rating. We went at lunch time in the past week and probably confused them a bit.. I had the buffet and my wife, who is seafood allergic, ordered a chicken dish... More

Great food, great sized portions...good service. Have never had a bad experience in here! Curries can be done in different levels of spice, very accommodating of food allergies

This place was packed for the lunch buffet - a good sign in a competitive restaurant market on Stephen Avenue. An $18 buffet is not out of line, considering the overall quality of the food. Everything was plentiful, hot, and tasty, though the calamari and pad thai were more average than anything else. If you want a quick Thai meal,... More

We needed a celiac, no shellfish, no soy and no dairy meal. Our waitress worked with the chef and was completely helpful to make sure the sauces all met our requirements. The food was delicious and our many criteria did not mean we had to limit our palette.

What a great little place tucked away upstairs. The food is awesome and authentic. Two of us enjoyed the lunch buffet and were able to experience the different types of food. The buffet included the incredible Papaya Salad which one of our friends ordered too. The rice salad rolls were tasty. For a lunch buffet we did find it a... More
