We ordered the chicken Pad Thai. It came to the table smelling like vinegar and indeed tasted like vinegar. We brought it to the attention of the waiter/owner and he challenged us to describe the problem "in your words" so we described it as sour tasting and vinegary. He didn't express any kind of apology or offer us another choice. He took the dish back to the kitchen and brought another of the same thing. He left our original plates in front of us with the original food so we had to ask for clean plates. When we tried the second dish the results were the same. He made no effort to correct the problem. We couldn't eat the food and left most of it on our plates and on the serving plate. He brought the check for the full amount and made no effort to make things right. We have eaten Pad Thai in other restaurants before and we know what good Pad Thai should taste like. The best way to describe the dish we were served is rancid, and the treatment we were given as indifferent. We do not recommend this restaurant.

If you are looking for true to form, spicy Thai food, then do not come here! Don't get me wrong - the food was really good - but it wasn't really what I envision as Thai. The service was good and the restaurant was clean. Prices were a bit high. I had the Pad See-Euw and my friend had chicken and vegetables with their garlic sauce. Both of our dishes were very tasty and we were not disappointed, it just wasn't the spicy Thai norm.

I read the previous reviews and we decided to give this place a try. The food was really bland--nothing special. Very Few vegetables in the pad Thai. We think that they probably played down the flavors for all of the old people. I would definitely not recommend this place.

I have been going to this place for over 10 years. The food quality is excellent. Great service. Even though it is in an older location, the keep it up very well. Never a disappointing meal.

I began eating at Thai Gardens about 13 years ago, and the food has remained consistently excellent throughout the years. The physical space is clean, reasonably comfortable, and decorated nicely. The food is prepared well, presented well, and is highly favorable as Thai cuisine should be, but without the heaviness and overpowering spiciness that some Thai establishments seem to produce. Everything from the appetizers, curries, noodle dishes, and traditional Thai dishes are done with balance and authenticity. There are only a scattering of Thai restaurants in town, and you can’t go wrong with this one. In writing this review, I simply couldn’t think of any negatives worthy of including.
