Ordered food delivery at 8:10 food was delivered at 8:47. Receptionist taking order was nice. Delivery person was prompt and nice. Food was very average if not a tad below par. Wonton soup was way over salted, dumplings were mushy, the meat had little flavor. The soup had no aroma and was rather tasteless. 2-3 on a scale of 1... More

This is my go to place in Bethesda for Thai. Our favorite server, Panny is GREAT. She is friendly, fast and personable. Our favorite dishes are Green Curry w/Beef, Drunken Noodle and Pla Pad Cha (crispy cat fish in a traditional Thai sauce featuring strands of young pepper corns). DELICIOUS!

Our friends wanted to try Bangkok Garden (new to us all) before our movie, so on a Saturday night in old Bethesda we walked in. The small dining room was crowded, but also quiet (no music, no shouting, good acoustics). Our waiter was enthusiastic. Our drinks and food (satay and dumpling appetizers and three different styles of curry) were all... More

This has become my go-to place for Thai food. Never too crowded, fabulous pad Thai (big portion) and coconut soup (complex, flavorful, not too spicy). Decor isn't my favorite, but the food stars here.

This was one of our favorite restaurants to eat at/ get take out from (which we did weekly) when we lived in Bethesda over 20 years ago. We were pleased to see that with all the growth & changes in Bethesda it was still there & still delicious! We ordered our favorites (pad Thai & chicken masa man curry) &... More

My wife grew up in Thailand and she is also wonderful cook of Thai food. We found this place about 15 years ago when her brother visited and they have one of his favorite dishes ("Suk No Mai" made from shredded bamboo shoots and vegetables). Anyway, we live in Tysons and go there as often as we can. As many... More

This is truly Bangkok in Bethesda. Pictures of the Thai Royal Family and carvings of elephants set the stage for the authentic Thai cuisine that is the hallmark of the restaurant.

You won't be surprised here. The quality of the food is good. Tasty and traditional. The overall decor could use a little renovation. Prices are pretty good.
