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.

Great place to go for Thai food. We came late to our reservation by about 20 mins so they gave us a seat next to the dish table. Kind of annoying but at least there was a wicker wall in between. The Valentine’s Day menu was great, get the pad Thai surf and turf. Fondu dessert. Appetizer or first course seemed small but the entree delivered. Great food.

WE WENT THERE FOR OUR ANNUAL FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO ENJOY YOUR WINTERLICIOUS MENU. IT WAS A MAJOR DISPOINTMENT FOR ALL OF US THIS YEAR. THE PAD THAI WE HAD WAS NOT PREPARED TO YOUR USUAL STANDARD. THE SHRIMPS WERE SMALL AND TOUGH, OVER COOKED. THE CRAB ON THE PLATE WAS THE REASON WE PICKED YOUR RESTAURANT THIS YEAR. IT WAS THE SMALL, LIMP, NOT HOT, LEGS MISSING, VERY DARK IN COLOUR, DRIPPING GREASE WITH EVERY BIT. THE CHEESE CAKE WAS EVEN MORE DISAPPOINTING. I EXPECTED A CHEESE CAKE, NOT 3 LAYERS OF UNBAKED CRUMBS PUT TOGETHER IN A JAR LIKE IT WAS A LAST MINUTE THING JUST TO HAVE SOMETHING TO PUT OUT THERE.

My boyfriend and I went here for Winterlicious. It was our first time and so we were not very familiar with the place. We didn’t know there was a spa next to the restaurant and so after entering the front entrance we weren’t sure where to go. It would have been nice if the bartender near the front desk had greeted us. We were only directed where to go after asking (no big deal). Once we were seated, our waiter came to us and asked if we were ready to order. However, I felt that our waiter was trying to handle the table beside us by offering their bill. So, he was trying to handle two tables at once and it was quite distracting. Anyway, we ordered our food and overall it was okay. I had the Phad Thai but I felt like I’ve had better ones elsewhere. I really liked the plating, I thought it was nice and presentable. Overall, the experience was not what I expected based on reviews I’ve read, and YouTube videos I’ve watched. However, we still enjoyed our time but I don’t think we’ll be coming back.

Excellent had the Winterlicious dinner. Of the 6 courses we shared only the dessert banana disappointed - very oily. Everything else was exceptionally good. The rare duck breast was a bit too rare for my wife but perfect for me.

Winterlicious lunch was just OK. Another time last year individual dishes that I ordered from the main menu were tastier and more of it. The waiter mixed up desserts with another group. It didn't live up to Bangkok Garden's usual standard.

Disappointment...First time at Bangkok Gardens - Winterliscious - and it was a let down. Unfriendly hostess, slow and inattentive waiting - it wasn't even busy, our reservation was for 5pm, really mediocre food. Maybe in earlier years it was better but now the experience is worth only 3 stars.

Great meal with friends I had the Chilli Fish with beans and I chose a side of stir fried eggplant. The food was hot and very flavorful. I normally order the curry but this was a lovely change. Shared the Shiracha chocolate mousse for dessert. A nice evening meal before the theater.
