“Mediocre Thai in a Dated Setting.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2009

Restaurant looks dated and is in a dated strip mall. It appears quite ordinary inside and, without the wall hangings, could be any kind of mall store. Service was friendly and efficient, but the food was the blandest thai food I have ever had. Most unmemorable. Sauces were glumphy and sort of tasteless. Best dish we had was the appetizer - shrimp rolls which were whole shrimp wrapped in pastry and fried. Served hot with a very good, tangy sauce. However, it was quite inexpensive.

“Delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2009

The staff was super friendly and helpful in describing some of the dishes. I loved the decor, too. But the food was definitely the best part! Very complete menu, fresh ingredients, very flavorful and just overall great! =)

“Rice in the middle of Lobster”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2008

This was the 4th day of our trip and coming from a rice eating family, it was nice to be able to order rice and stir fry veggies in the land of lobster. If you are expecting authentic Thai cuisine, forget about that…but the service was good and like I said before, it hit the spot to be able to eat a bowl of hot steaming rice :)

“Best Thai so far in the area, for sure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2008

I have been on a quest for the last several months to find authentic cuisine for Mexican and also Thai food. I was delighted to be successful on one of those quests by locating the BEST THAI food as of yet!
So far out of 5 local Thai restaurants (extending from Bath to Portland, ME), Thai Garden has definitely won my vote for best around. I agree with another reviewer that their lunch deal is outstanding too.

My favorite dish is the "Masaman Curry" although I have heard that the "green curry" gives the Masaman a run for its money. The "chicken satay" is very tasty, as well.
The restaurant has a good atmosphere with very friendly and quick service. One of the best parts about the menu is that despite the spice level scale listed, from 1 to 4 stars, they are more than happy to accommodate a request for a much spicier meal! We have pushed it to the equivalent to an 8 star - fabulous!

I highly recommend eating here and look forward to my next visit.
