Beautiful interior coupled with tasty Thai food makes this place a must go when downtown! We enjoyed the sample platter for two which showcased six different appetizers and a healthy Mango Salad... Pad Thai is one of my favourites and I was pleased with my dish. Best of all was the very large and tasty shrimp done better than any... More

Recommend by a friend, Bangkok Garden did not disappoint. Extensive list of choices on the menu at reasonable prices. Good for a social meal or business meal.

Best Thai food in Toronto. For a very reasonable price, lunch buffet is great. Different food everyday that could satisfy vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Place is very clean. Ambiance is elegant and classy. I go there very often with my group from the office.

This restaurant has some of the best Thai food in Toronto and the ambiance is beautiful too! I've been here a few times and every time the food and service has been great - whether in a group of 2 or 8. My favourite dish is the red curry, it comes in it's own pot over a candle holder to... More

I enjoyed the small but nicely done lunch buffet. The selections were not many but the quality was good. The place has lots of paneling, statuary and a fountain and easy on the eyes. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Would go back.

Went here with my sister and a friend based on the friend's recommendation. A great choice. Decor is very nice. Service was very good. Food was fantastic. We shared the tiger shrimp and calamari appetizers. I had the Two Friends which was a very tasty and spicy chicken and beef dish. The others had cashew chicken and the basil scallops.... More

The service was excellent. The decor was nice. We have looked forward to eating here for quite some time. We have tried to make it for summerlicious/winterlicious but never have. Since we were in town, we decided to have dinner here. The food was pricey (as expected) but the taste was disappointing. The mussels were fresh but had no flavour.... More

In addition, our cuisine caters to many dietary restrictions. From spiced stir- fries, to fresh rolls and curries, there are several gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options to suit all. Our bar lounge offers exotic cocktails, martinis, wine and a large selection of international beers. Open for à la carte and buffet lunch Monday to Friday, and dinner Monday to Sunday. Reservations recommended. Private and semi-private group dining available.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
