From the front of the restaurant you may not fancy going in as it is a bit dated, along with the interior decor, but the service is quick and friendly. The food is great as well, we ordered a green thai chicken curry and a red thai beef curry both being served at the heats we specified. Large portion sizes and one rice is enough to share between two allowing for a reasonably priced meal!

We were in Calgary for the Magnetic North Theatre Festival and wandered down Stephen Avenue looking for supper. The front of this place confused us until we realized that we needed to walk up a long flight to stairs to find the restaurant. The stairs looked a bit dingy so we were not too sure about the place . . . but climbed up to give it a look. At the top we realized how full it was so decided to eat there. The interior looks pretty typical for a Thai place, what was lovely was the uniform the staff wore, very classy blouse and skirt combination. The menu presented a nice variety so we ordered a couple of dishes and some rice for with the meal. When the food arrived we were really impressed, the servings were a nice size, looked really good and tasted just as good. There was not an overwhelming amount of salt in the food which we find some Thai places tend to over-do. When the bill came we thought they had missed charging us for the rice since it seemed lower than we thought it would be. All in all, a nice little place with good food and reasonable prices. We will be back.

Been to the Rose Garden about 4 times now. I always make a point of stopping by when in Calgary. Great food, good value and good service.

Good food and great location. If you like it hot, request the chopped green chiles. Fantastic flavor and heat!

At the top of a steep flight of worn, carpeted stairs, this quirky little restaurant offers up small portions of pretty good food. The fried spring rolls were not the best, however - much too small and slender and lacked flavor. Because they were so small, there was barely anything inside them. The phanaeng curry beef dish was actually pretty good, although the beef was a little tough and the portion extremely small. The sweet and sour pork dish was, again, very small, but tasty, on par with similar dishes in other downtown Thai restaurants. We did enjoy the rice cooked in coconut cream. The service was pleasant, but quite slow for a restaurant less than half full at 6:30 p.m. mid-week. We may return, but we'll be seeking out other more satisfying Thai restaurants first.
