Good and Bad

We went there for nice dinner during winterlisious 2012. Overall restaurant is very busy but cozy and romantic. Our server was running around in hurry and as a result during entire evening mixed up who ordered what, since it was only two of us it was ok to switch. Food Overall was very good: My appetizer was yumm and so is my the other person, soft deep fried calamari was excellent. Chicken skewers were moist and sauce was perfectly spicy. For the main dish disappointment arrived, all main dishes come with rice and stir fry. Stir fry was the WORST I have ever tried, super hard giant pieces of cabbage+ raw zucchini made it unpleasant both on taste and texture. Main dish of red curry was excellent and rice was perfectly done. Basil beef was amazing (properly the softest piece of beef I have ever tried in my life). Desserts were good too my mango-chocolate mousse cake was heavenly and banana fritter had amazing crunchy but sweet coating on it .

Hidden gem, good thai food.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Not sure if the owners are authentic Thai, but the food is very tasty, especially the banana fritters. The portions can be shared between two people. My favourite dishes are: the seafood pad thai and thai pineapple fried rice. You should go.

As a party of three, we ate here in Oct. What a wonderful experience! Everything ordered was super fresh and attractively served. I would recommend the appetizer sampler, which can be altered for more than two. Spring rolls, calamari, a sort of sushi and more with great dipping sauces. I had the Basil stir fried shrimp with baby basil leaves and adjusted to medium heat. My son ordered the shrimp fried rice - beautiful meal with the rice nice and spicy. My husband had Bangkok Noodle a seafood entree with tons of scallops. Not a crumb left on any plate. We had lattes (could have been hotter) and a great martini. The decor is wonderful - serene and artistic with very nice lighting. Service is very good - was surprised that the waiter always deferred to the men first, both in ordering and serving. No problem, but not used to that. He should have known it was my decision to go there. Very reasonable prices in relation to other Elm Street restaurants.

best deal for authentic Thai food in an upscale AYCE restaurant. Visited with a large party and were seated at a long table. Decor is upscale, hardwood floors throughout, statues and mirrors, staff is well dressed and very helpful. Extensive variety of delicious Thai food to please carnivores and herbivores. Will definitely re-visit and recommend to others.

Service was attentive but a trifle slow. Food was outstanding: stuffed peppers and calamari as appetisers mains with shrimp and beef, and beef skewers. all delightfully seasoned and spiced. Atmosphere was there but not outstanding. When l the clients were talking, it was trifle noisy. We would definitely return again.

The restaurant was very accommodating and allowed us to bring a few simple decorations to tape up as we were celebrating a co-worker going off on maternity leave. Really appreciated that they placed us in a corner and let us bring that stuff in - thank you! Buffet is always delicious!

Our waiter, Eakalak, the young man from Chiang Rai, Thailand, was absolutely outstanding. I have lived in and studied Thailand for more than 20 years, and Eakalak epitomizes all the graciousness and kind-heartedness that makes Thailand one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

Everything was good - I had already filled this out in the restaurant but I'm happy to submit few ratings here. Everything was first class. The service was somewhat slow but that wasn't the fault of the waiter - he had a lot of tables and he was alone, but he was excellent otherwise. It would have been nice to know that there was a washroom off of the bar - I didn't know and followed the signs in the restaurant and I wound walking down and up two flights with difficulty. The decor in the dining room was very pleasant and the lighting was very good - just right, not too bright and not too low. I hadn't been to Bankok Gardens for many years and always liked it. I was happy to return for Father's Day - perfect for my husband.

Restaurants National "Eat What You Want" Day in Toronto

One of the first Thai restaurants in Toronto, Bangkok Garden does Thai food authentically, making their dishes based on the Thai principle of balancing the five tastes: sweet, hot, sour, salty and bitter. So if you can’t get enough of curries and noodles, soups and salad, wok-fried rice, you should head to Bangkok Garden. The lunch buffet is a great way to experiment and try different dishes. Or stay for dinner and choose sophisticated selections such as Cornish Hen and Lemongrass, Lemon Seafood Soup and Emerald Curry of Chicken.
