Description: Simple, yet adventurous. Thai Garden is about fun, fresh food that combines the best of Asian favours. We think we’ve hit the trifecta of good Thai: fast service, friendly staff and fresh ingredients.

The overall impression of this place is spotlessly clean, tidy, friendly, and efficient. It is an absolutely safe place to have a family, group, or business Thai meal. OK, there is a but coming ..... it almost has the air of a chain or franchise image, where the all the quality boxes are undeniably ticked, but somehow it cannot be called a real Thai experience. The dishes we chose were definitely dumbed down to meet what they assume is the kiwi palate, but perhaps that was just coincidence of choice. This could well be regarded as Thai or generic Asian food for beginners or the unadventurous, and in that way, clearly is sucessful in meeting a market need, but I think infuture I will be heading for the places frequented by those who call Southeast Asia, home.

We have had dinner here twice now and really enjoy the food. The service is quick and efficient and the food is very good. One of our party is gluten and dairy free and they said they could easily change anything on the menu to cater for this. Thank you it is not often we hear that.

Have eaten here 3 times now, and on my last visit i had the best meal of them all.Maybe it was my choice of food this time, as the previous ones were not so good. I enjoyed the stir fry it was very tasty and the service was very good.

My only negative comment was being rushed at the end of the night to finish our drinks and leave, it was only 10pm on a friday night,

Excellent food, very tasty and a very good size meal. Thai Temple does do take-away meals as well, but we have found that these meals are not nearly as good value as having the meals at the restaurant. Lovely decor, and staff. Have been there lots of times and each time the food is excellent!
