“Wonderrful Homecooked Thai and South east Asian food”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The restaurant is in an Oakland neighborhood. The clientele is from the neighborhood. The food is great and the service is good. The food is tasty and it tastes like it is home cooked. The favorite is the sampler. the beer is Lao and is only $2.50.t

“early dinner”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

So surprised the restaurant was almost completely full at 4pm. While service is a little slow, the quality of the food makes the wait worthwhile.

“Great local gem for authentic Thai and Laotian food.”
Reviewed November 23, 2010

Champa Garden is one of those great local budget-friendly restaurants that serves excellent Thai/Laotian food. I love the rice ball salad as well as the larb. The ginger catfish is also a favorite. The neighborhood is a little dicey and it can get busy at dinner time with extended waits, but this is a good family-run restaurant. They serve Navarro wines, which is one of my personal all-time favorite wineries and the Alsatian varietals pair really well with the food.
