The Pad Thai noodles were tough and chewy and the Beef and Veggies were rather blah. The service was okay, but not enough waitress's to go around. Just a painfully average meal.

While on a day trip to Banff we decided to have dinner at a Chinese restaurant. However, the particular restaurant we were going to has moved and the location has been taken over by the Bamboo Garden. Their menu is quite extensive, with Thai, Chinese and Malaysian items being included. We had a mixture of several of them. The best of our choices was the Thai green curry but the others were just OK. The Malaysian Roti Canai was disappointing, with really small portions and the accompanying curry sauce was rather bland. Prices are fairly high but maybe because this is in a very touristy town. The service was really good though so that was a bonus. The waitresses were very attentive and expedient. We'd probably go back again, just in case we'd picked a bad day.

This has a pretty varied menu and has many dishes from other Asian Cuisines than just thai.

So in my opinion it is a great place for dinner / lunch if you are craving something spicy, like we were after a few days of pizza , deli sandwiches and fries.

We showed up late , almost 15 mins before closing time but out server was quiet patient.

Lots of covers and has options for seating large groups.

Prices are comparable to other restaurants in the area

After reading some of the other reviews I'm surprised to read that others were disappointed and had a bad experience. When we were there the food was delicious and the portions were large. Service was a little slow but food was worth the wait as the views filled the time inbetween ordering and arriving!
