The food here is authentic & the service is good. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with some lovely Thai pieces. They also do excellent take-aways!

“Great meal and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

We were visiting Paignton for the weekend with friends, out of season and set out to find somewhere to eat, quite late in the evening.
We found the Thai Garden and whilst quiet, the welcome was warm and service very good. The food was great - soups, satay and a fab sausage dish for starters, selection of curries and stir fry's tried by our party and all were very good.
Attentive waiting staff continued to keep the drinks flowing to complete a thoroughly enjoyable meal.

“Tasty authentic dishes & excellent service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

We were pleased to get a table for four on a Saturday night without booking as the restaurant was nearly full - we would certainly advise booking if possible. We were met with a friendly welcome and the staff were really efficient throughout the evening with someone always on hand when needed but quite happy to allow time between courses when requested. We all had the cheapest 'set menu' and this gave us several 'tasters' for starters and two really tasty main dishes, though the quantity was only just enough for four hungry adults. We were able to select any sweet from the menu & pay the small difference in price which was good.
The ambience was excellent - not at all cramped and a nice 'buzz'. The service was faultless and the food tasty. We thought the food was reasonably good value with drinks at typical restaurant prices. We would certainly be happy to eat here again.

“Terrible food with a good service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

I visited here on new years eve. It was busy and the staff were all in fancy dress. The service was really good but the food was not enjoyable at all. We ordered green curry which was sickly sweet, it resembled a dessert rather than a curry, there was clearly ingredients missing, it was horrible. Not authentic at all.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The staff are so welcoming and accommodating. They cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. The food was amazing, hot plates, fast service, good banter, big smiles, yummy, decor attractive and interesting. We didn't book, but got there early so we were able to get a table. Prices sensible too. We will definitely be going back on our next visit to Paignton.
