“Very Strange!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Much like the review below, I found my visit to the Thai Garden very strange. The food was very enjoyable but it was almost as if they didn't want the world to know they were open. There were no issues at all apart from really rather uncomfortable due to this!

“Something's afoot.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2014

Well Supper last night here was bizarre. All the lights in the bar were out and the restaurant lighting was very low. All tables by the windows were 'Reserved' (although nobody sat there all night) The door was locked and supervised by a member of staff. It felt a bit like we were eating in a clandestine speakeasy! The food was, as usual, good but something was definitely going on.... Almost as if they shouldn't be trading but were?...............

“Surprised they are still trading”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

Given the low numbers of diners we have seen when passing and half the building in darkness I would say this restaurant is on that downward path. Eaten in there once found the food nothing special to write about. Owner rude and abrupt and no better when you phone for a take away. As for the quality of the take away. Again nothing great, quite oily average quality ingredients and not the flavour sensation you expect from thai.

“Open or Shut?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This establishment should decide whether it is going to be open or closed!
It is hit or miss when you turn up and the doors are closed.
How can any person book a table not knowing if the place is going to be open!
The owner/manager is one of the rudest people I have ever known,he does not have a clue about customer service.
His attitude is "I dont care,I close when I like,I open the bar when I like etc"
Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of this place.
There are many good restaurants in Letchworth to eat where you are treated with courtesy and you know the place will be open when you have booked a table.
By the way the food in the Thai Garden is like the manager USELESS.

“Booked, but closed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

I just don't understand, you book a table for lunch, you arrive, and the placed is closed!
You decide if you want to take a chance.
The L'artista at the bottom of the high street took us in and we were well rewarded with a super birthday lunch.
