We arrived as they were closing up lunch service. The shrimp was suspect, meaning it did not taste fresh. Our server disappeared and over 20 minutes later another server appeared and delivered our check. The restaurant servers were friendly and greeted us with a smile.

This place has been around a long time and now has a set menu. The food was pleasant enough and out friends enjoyed it, but it pretty bland and lacked spice. Still convenint for those staying at the hotel.

We stopped by about 8:30pm, it was about 30 degrees out and sat at the outside patio. Service was quick and friendly. Had the pad thai, the thai spring rolls and a mango salad. It was all quite good, not the best I've ever tasted but not bad at all. the mango was fresh and sweet with a fresh light... More

Very nice restaurant. Décor was out of this world. The food was very tasty and different but was worth the price.

We started w tempura prawns & Thai rolls, for mains muscovy duck & flat iron steak and finished w chai tea chocolate mousse.

Admittedly we only had appetizers and drinks, but the menu wasn't exciting and the service was very slow despite not being busy. We should have known it was less than great when it was super easy to get a patio spot on a Saturday night. Restaurant itself inside was also only about 1/4 filled on Saturday at 7pm

I would give Bangkok Gardens a good mark on looks and service, but the food is only passable. We were meeting up with an old friend and picked Bangkok Gardens as we were hankering after the food we had on a recent trip to Thailand last February. I would have liked to have ordered a Som Tam, but our guest... More

Strolling around the corner from our hotel, we came across a quiet street with several restaurants, including the Bangkok Garden. It was very pleasant being able to eat our supper, seated outside, while enjoying the stunning architecture around us. Our waiter, Jason, was a fount of knowledge about both the menu and the architecture! Besides the usual Thai dishes, we... More

Great atmosphere, good service and a very good selection of Thai dishes. This place is busy enough that the food stays fresh. A popular spot for work luncheons and get togethers. I always look forward to going back and I'm never disappointed. The unique feature is the soup bar with full service. The decorations give it a first class feel,... More

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.
