    Remains one of the best Thai restaurants in the city. An extensive and varied menu with selections not found in other Thai restaurants. Authentically spiced. Both the emerald and warrior curries were outstanding. Great service by my waitress. Made me feel like a VIP.

    We came across the Bangkok Garden website and were intrigued enough to reserve our table on line. We were greeted with a smile and shown to a private area of the restaurant. The waiter was great. He was attentive without being annoying and didn't mind that we took forever choosing our entree. The appetizer for two was just awesome but we were told to be careful with the peppers. Yes they were hot. We finally decided on duck and the ginger chicken and they were just wonderful. Total cost with drinks, wine and tip about $160. We have spent more elsewhere and not had as nice an experience. Only one small thing though. The lighting was poor making reading the menu difficult.

    Friendly prompt service. Very pleasant decor with many decorative touches which makes you think of Thailand. Food presented in authentic Thai style with all the characteristic flourishes. The food is slightly less spicy than it would be in Thailand but for the average North American taste, it is probably wise and the wait staff are always willing to provide nam prik".

    The Bangkok Gardens was an average dining experience, the food was good, presented well. The ambience was somewhat predictable, dated and dark. . We also felt the particular area we were seated was set too closely to our fellow diners...if you can hear every word of their conversation and yet they are speaking in a normal volume ..you are too close. The major complaint we had was the washroom facilities...if you have ambulation issues I would not recommend this particular restaurant.. you must travel around fellow diners, find the heavy exit door, go down 2 flights of stairs to the adjacent building (Elmwood Spa) go through their basement door to find 2 singular ladies washrooms, challenging if in a hurry or have ambulation issues.

    I haven't been to Bangkok Gardens in a few years (I used to love it) so I didn't know if the quality level would be the same. I wanted a special place for a nice mom-daughter dinner and I was not disappointed! The restaurant is beautiful, exactly as I remembered it, the food was outstanding and the service was perfect. Annie, our server, was cheerful, very amicable and just a happy person. We really had a great time. We'll make sure we won't let years go by before we visit again.

    Our "gang of four" (we've been meeting for 25 years!) loved the delicious and generous 1/2 price appetizers and $5 pints of wonderful beer. We had a window seat on the second floor - the service was Juan-derful (it was his first day on the job). We'd definitely go back again! Location was excellent - close to the main hub of activity on Yonge but here it was quiet and peaceful. It is also near the big hospitals so a better and exotic alternative to burger fare.

    My colleague and I first discovered this lovely restaurant when they advertised their half-price 'Happy Hour' menu. The cocktails and food were excellent so we've gone back for other occasions. The staff are very friendly and professional. The ambiance is wonderful, too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

    For my first time eating Thai it was delicious. The waitress was fun and happy. The restaurant has lovely decor and very spacious feeling. I had the shrimp & sugar cane appetizer... It was great. The pad Thai entree was so good. Lastly the chocolate mousse for dessert. I will definitely come back! Hope this restaurant will be part of the Winterlicious lineup as well!

    a very beautiful restaurant, GREAT place for a date or a goup of friends for casual dining. it was really busy on the night i went so service was a rather slow, and the food served was sitting under the heat lamps for a while, as the pad thai was very dry on the surface when it was served... but the flavours were there, it was DELICIOUS.... i will go back again to try the food during NON rush times...

    I was going there with my friends for summerlicious, but were told that all the food on summerlicious menu were actually served in the buffet,and it is the same price. We tried the buffet. I've been to Thailand many times and I will have to say the food is just ok. It is lacking of character in a sense that once you finish your food, you don't recall any of those that you just tasted. I'd say it is a place more for a quick lunch with your colleagues than a place for a romantic date. Considering the price and the 15% off coupon you would receive, I might go back for the buffet lunch. It is certainly better than the food court but I would not recommend it to anyone who is really into trying a great Thai restaurant.

    I ordered the vegetarian options from the summerlicious menu. The Thai rolls for apps were good. The tofu entree was just ok....dry and nothing special in flavour. The desserts were a letdown. My chocolate mousse was average and my husband's sticky rice was just bad. I would order off the regular menu next time to give it a fair opinion. The portion sizes were fine.

    People welcoming you are inviting and so kind. Service is also outstanding. We went there to try it, we had never been there. We thought summerlicious was a good way to do so! But for the same price, you have access to the buffet with similar or identical menu… and of course all you can eat! It also offers you the chance to taste more dishes. Everything was great!

    The Summerlicious menu was a great representation of the regular menu. There were plenty of gluten free options, vegan and spicy dishes. I think my only complaint is that I never wanted to stop eating, so I had very little room for dessert.

    I went to both the summerlicious and winterlicious here, both times I did not like it. We got the pork tenderloin salad, curry chicken, and Thai beef as main entrees, it was blend and we finished half of it and threw away the rest. The appetitizers were tasty, we got the wings, shrimp and mussels. For dessert, we had a bad experience with the rice pudding and stuck with the safer choice - chocolate mousse and it was adequate. I wouldnt come here again unless it's for their lunch buffet. Service was extremely slow.
