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.

We always enjoy the food at Bangkok Garden and continue to return. I think they are a little short staffed. Once we placed our order the food arrived in good time. We just had to wait about 10 minutes after we sat down before the waiter returned to take either drink or food order. I think that could be improved. As I said the food is excellent.

We were all disappointed with the service. Its understandable that on a Tuesday night it was very busy for 2 servers. However, it was very clear that the two were avoiding interaction with our table, as they were both attending and conversing with all the others. Handling such a large group of people on a busy night while understaffed is understandable. However it was absolutely unacceptable with the lack of communication and attentiveness there was with our table compared to every other from what we observed. As most of our group had already arrived promptly, we just had a few others who were unable to attend and one who was running late. Everyone was ready to place their orders. And yet there was no server to come check up on us for a whole 20 minutes. By the time we did place our order, and when the food did arrive, it was very disappointing to see how generic the food was compared to the price. Our gathering that night was to celebrate a birthday, which is why we brought our own cake. When we gave the cake to one of the staff to handle when we first arrived we were not informed of a "cake fee" or a fee regarding outside food and HOW MUCH it was either. Not until the end where it was about to be served. it was very understandable to have a fee on bringing outside food, but at least inform us of how much it would be. In the end every guest was charged $3 on top of the 18% gratuity fee. We did not even have to option if one person was willing to pay for the whole fee. What if one person were to pay for the whole table? How would that determine the outside food fee? If it wasnt for the mandatory fee, do you think we would even tip at all or even that much with this sort of service? We never even got the chance to clarify any questions or concerns we had regarding the cake fees, or how we wanted the bills split. It felt extremely rushed for you to receive our payments. It honestly does not matter if the service was poor on the off chance, but if you expect us to pay such a high quantity, its expected the same for the quality.

I come here for dinner often and love it, so was really interested to try the lunch buffet. Was it ever disappointing. The lovely fresh dishes served at dinner just don’t seem to make the transition to mild, bulk-produced chafing dish food. Also, the wait staff completely ignore you at lunch. I had to get up and find a waiter both to get some hot sauce and to get the bill. Avoid this place at lunchtime

My girlfriend and I made reservations here for brunch for her birthday. Please keep in mind this is right below Elmwood Spa and we also booked our massages that day. After our massage, we went downstairs to confirm where the Bangkok Garden is located and the person at the front advised us that he couldn't find our reservation but can still take us to the restaurant. This employee walked us across the hallway and opened the doors for us (as we were still in our robes) and felt instantly uncomfortable as we entered the restaurant. We were seated by the managers (somewhere secluded) and was later on advised that we were at the wrong restaurant. This was an uncomfortable situation for both parties but could have easily been avoided by being up front with us. The managers at the Bangkok Garden allowed us to come in and have a table and as soon as we started lining up to eat, we were questioned as if we were lost and were at the INCORRECT restaurant. It was our first time at Bangkok Gardens and never had the chance to even try the food because we eventually had to leave, due to the DRESS CODE that we never knew of. It was supposed to be my girlfriends birthday celebration and it was her first time at the spa. We booked a table at the Terrace afterwards but I just want to say how humiliating it was and workers really need to work on their communication with each other.
