Came here with my son and his girlfriend (12/8/16) glad we arrived early as seated at the window table. The owner understands our sense of humour, and is quick with her witty remarks. Food is variable, something for all. If you really want hot-go jungle, although other dishes with plenty of spice and heat. This small family run business is... More

Fantastic food, great service BUT not very nice atmosphere. Owner (I think) shouting at waitress during service made our evening a bit unpleasant. A bit expensive for what you get...but food was delicious! We may give another chance.

Thank you for your review; please do give us another try. I think you would find me talking to my daughter in our language which does seemed a bit harsh however I can assure you that I wasn't shouting at her. This is a very small family business so sometimes we simply cannot avoid speaking in Malaysians. Malaysians tends to... More

We thought we would try something different but found the food to be very plain and somewhat lacking there are other Thai restaurantsin Dunstable which offer far mor exotic cuisine

Just moved to the area and delighted to have found this little gem in Dunstable. Food was incredible tasty and super choice on main menu or you can have a set menu which is very good value. Service was excellent very attentive and informative and we will definitely be going back as had a lovely evening.

Nor much to say, but THE best real Thai food we have ever had! Been to others nearby, ok, but don't match the individual flavours and textures of Coconut Garden. Thanks to Lilly & Husband.

Feeling hungry and the need for something tasty, we tried this little gem. This was after researching several hopefuls which turned out to have closed down. Dunstable is a little sad these days and this restaurant was at the least promising end of town. We are so glad we made the walk. We were welcomed by a broad smile, nay... More

Just been for my wife's birthday meal with 10 friends. Mostly Malaysian food which is a bit more spicy than Chinese. It's become a regular haunt for us over many years, partly because of the really tasty food and partly because the staff (including owners) are so very accommodating and friendly. Even when you're ordering dishes to be shared between... More
