Diner Reviews
  • "I have been there many times for group lunches and the restaurant accomodates groups well. It ranges from quite quiet to quite noisy if there is a large group. The food is consistently good but the wait staff could be more attentive to whether persons eating from the buffet wish drinks or the cheque."

  • "Have been there a few times. Still as good as usual"

  • "Went for a late lunch. Was greeted by the bartender who was friendly and helpful, and our waiter was attentive. It appeared that several teak forests went down to furnish the interior, which kept the ambience warm and cozy even though there was little natural light filtering in. The menu offered an impressive variety, but I had read that the buffet was not to be missed, so I went that route. I was not disappointed. Especially liked the "soup bar" with chef to make your very own noodle soup to order. A good mix of vegetarian and meat items on the buffet, so I had to try them all! Vegetables were crisp and curries light and delightful. Will definitely go again -- and soon."

  • "We had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves. Buffet as always, was well prepared and presented. Overall, we had a wonderful meal and really can recommend it for group meals."

  • "The selection of dishes available on the buffet provided a great choice for satisfying the taste of each of the guests who joined me for our business luncheon. The Thai theme provides an array of rich flavors and textures to satisfy. The soup bar provides an opportunity to create customized versions of noodle soups spiced and flavored to taste. The dessert bar provided a broad selection of sweets to top off the meal."

  • "It offers one of the better buffets in town. A lots of variety and, overall, the food is very good. It has a clean and pleasant ambiance."

  • "The quietest restaurant, presumably because of the Teak. Very beautiful with great service. The bar/lunch bar was the best part way back in the 2000's when I worked a few blocks away, but I've not been to the new version. I'm old and just go for lunch, now. Great place and you can book a big table for a meeting and you can hear! I actually did this in 2011 at the holiday season, before I retired! Everyone raved about how good the meeting was. Not too many restaurants that can say that today. In many restaurants, if you are three seats away, you might as well be on different planets! Keep up the good work."

  • "The restaurant had several promotions to draw in customers and then nickel and dimed us on the bill - we had a gift card and they considered that a 'discount' so we couldn't use it and also receive a sale price on anything - they even acknowledged they had messed up the marketing but refused to budge or honor their offers - seemed like a poor way to increase business or make customers feel valued!"

  • "I've always loved Bangkok Garden for its tranquil lovely ambience and great service, as well as excellent Thai food. It still has the first two, but the third is slipping. I and a friend usually go once a month, and both of us love the steamed ginger fish. On our last visit a couple of days ago, it was no longer salmon but tilapia -- a fish not recommended for human consumption. The accompanying veg was soggy. The waitress offered to get us something else. But the fish dishes were mainly deep fried and apparently also tilapia. I know this is a cheap fish but Bangkok should be a cut above. My friend's chicken salad was as good as ever, but I gave up. I'd like to return to the Bangkok, and am hoping in the future things will take an upturn."

  • "We really enjoyed our lunch at Bangkok Garden. The food was tasty - need more non-vegetarian options though. It would be nice to have non-veg spring rolls, non-veg pad thai and noodles. The meat curries and dishes were good. There were so many vegetarian options, but please think of adding more non-vegetarian selections too. Female manager seemed a bit abrupt. The servers were wonderful!"

  • "I've been several times over the years and the restaurant never disappoints. Price is great and food selections very good. Buffet always stocked and LOVED the 1/2 price bottles of wine at my last group lunch. Everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks"

  • "Have eaten in this restaurant for the previous couple of years and really enjoyed the food. This year the spicy beef salad was not the same as I remember, but very nice with an appropriate amount of spice. I enjoy spicy Thai foods often. The emerald (green) curry was very disappointing - not at all vibrant. It was more like a chicken stew. I will not return as there are many other Thai dining options to be explored. The total tab with tip and two moderately priced glasses of wine was over $62.00 - quite high for a mediocre dining experience."

  • "Overall a good experience. I went with my family around 6pm prior to a nearby show that began at 7:30pm - we asked for speedy service (all dishes and the bill brought out at once)) and they were more than happy to oblige. Due to the time constraint on our end, our experience was rushed and so we did not get to fully enjoy ourselves properly. Will definitely go again and give it a proper chance."

  • "I understand they have been around a long time however I had dinner there on Feb 24th for the first time. The food was great and the service excellent. Also, the cost was very reasonable. In addition at the end of the dinner they issued 10% discount vouchers...nice touch!"

  • "The restaurant was convenient to the Mirvish Theatre which was ideal as we had tickets for an 8:00 p.m. performance. Our waiter made sure our dinner was well timed without being rushed. Top marks all around!"

  • "If there is an option for the buffet menu or winterlicious. Choose the buffet. The food from the winterlicious menu was awful. It was as if they just took the food from the buffet and plated it nicely for you. My sister and I both could not finish the entree. The padthai had a bad flavour and the red curry had no flavour but bamboo shoot flavour. We took one bite from the dessert (coconut tapioca) and could eat no more. The texture was gross and it had no flavour. I'm sure the waiter noticed that we hardly touched our meal but didn't offer us the buffet option. If the only difference is the desserts, then I rather opt out and enjoy the more varied food."

  • "Had dinner on valentines day and ordered off their set course menu. Still took 2.5 hours to finish dinner. The server was very nice but the long wait and the fact that the food was just okay would make me think twice about going back."

  • "As title stated the food quality is ok with the price itself I would expect more than just an ordinary dish. However the restaurant is very good and unique but just dont expect much from the food itself."

  • "Fantastic food! We had three in our group all different dietary requirements which wasn't a problem as the variety was vast! The grilled sea bass was so tender and flaky just as it should be. All of us enjoyed our meals. However if I could make one suggestion - it seems our waitress was too busy with the other tables in our section that night - which is understandable seeing as it was Valentines. BUT, once she served our mains we didn't see her until 45 minutes after our plates had been cleared! By the time we got the dessert menu, which we had to ask for, they were out of the panacotta. Which wasn't a problem as we thought " okay let's order something else " to which the waitress responded " that will take 20 mins". We left instead."

  • "Horrible serivice. Had to wait for over an hour for the apps to come then another 30 mins for the entrees. There was barely a waiter Very disappointed overall considering it was for valentines day and assumed the service should be better then usual. The 'stir fry vegetable on tofu' turned out to be Bok Choy and tofu..personally not a fan of Bok Choy I thought it would have been mixed veggies. Flavour were good. Finally when packing up the food. I barely touched one of the curries because I was full after horfing down my meal so fast cuz I was so hungry after the long wait. I got my takeout bag and I saw about 1/4 of my original it came back in the same small size container, but watered down so it could fit in another one the same size"

  • "ZERO STARS! hostess was very rude, we were 10 mins early for our 8:30pm reso, hostess was just like " your early sit down over there till 8:30!"... When we did get our table and waited bout 8 mins for our server to come over to greet us we asked if we can order and the server said ok i will be back in 2 mins. 2 mins turned to bout another 8 mins. (We sat upstairs and our server kept disapearing downstairs) (we can hear the next table beside us complaining about his disapearing act and was fustrated waiting on the server for the bill) it took 45 mins after we ordered to get our nuke warm food. Food was not authentic thai food at all! Would not recommend my worst enemy to eat here!"

  • "Nice ambiance for business discussion (everyone needs a break from steakhouses once in awhile right?) or a romantic dinner as diners are quite reserved and quiet. Tables are spaced apart nicely. We were seated upstairs and I was worried that service would be less attentive, but that was definitely not the case. Our waiter was attentive and checked up on us at a appropriate frequency. We ended up eating from the Winterlicious menu as it was less overwhelming than the full menu. The dual rolls were a tasty combo of the savoury crisp spring rolls complemented by the cool refreshing salad rolls. I had the chicken laksa which was very flavourful and had nice thick rice noodles."

  • "Decided to order from the Winterlicious menu which was a mistake as clearly they're only set up for self- service buffet."

  • "After an amazing Winterlicious lunch last week, my partner and I decided to find another "hidden gem" to try this week. We booked the Bangkok Garden for lunch hoping for another fine dining, luxurious experience. We were slightly coerced into choosing the buffet option, being told it was a better deal with more options. However, we found there was a longer wait and you were forced rush through the line to accompany patrons behind you. The food was luke-warm and lacked many of the main components (i.e. missing the meat). Often trays were empty by the time we got to them (i.e. Red Curry which was what I originally wanted to order) and was not refilled by the time we exited the line. We couldn't be bothered to wait again in the line."

  • "I enjoyed the food. Chicken Laksa was a bit on a spicy side for me (a bit too much so it was difficult to taste the food properly), but it is Thai food! I don't know why I expected it to be less spicy. Spring rolls and banana fritters (served with mango ice cream - delicious!) made up for it though. I giving the overall experience 4/5 only because we had to wait for our food more than usual, although I can't say that there were a lot of people."

  • "I came here for Winterlicious with my friend on a Monday night. The restaurant wasn't busy or overly crowded which i liked. My experience was pretty much very positive until after our desserts had arrived. Me and my friend was catching up on good old times when our waiter brought us our bill without us asking for it. I thought he wanted us to have it so we could complete a survey before we were ready to leave. Five minutes later he came back with a credit machine when i never asked him for or did I put down my credit card signalling him to bring the machine over. I was really disappointment and felt like we were being rush out of the restaurant when there's no line ups at the door."

  • "I left a special request when making a reservation, asking Bangkok Garden to write "Happy Birthday Mom" on a plate of dessert for my mom's birthday. This did not happen. The appetizers were served inconsistently, with my sister having one chicken satay skewer less than the rest of us. Thai ice tea was way too sweet. Overall, I wouldn't come back."

  • "After three services tried to talk us out of ordering of the winterlicious menu we went with the buffet (which was the same price). Lots of delicous vegetarian options and relatively healthy desserts at the buffet. Service though was sparce. Hard to find someone to order drinks, get chop sticks, and pay the bill."

  • "A friend and I came to Bangkok for winterlicious and got the chicken satay as the appetizer, seafood curry pad thai as an entree and chocolate chai mousse for the dessert. It was wortb every penny. Beautiful ambience, the service was good and again the food was delicious. Best thai place so far!"

  • "I took my wife here for dinner for her birthday and we both loved the experience. The food was great, the service was great, and it had a very calming/relaxing ambiance with excellent service. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a couples dinner or even a for a nice night with family or friends. We had the winterlicious menu which was very reasonably priced, but the regular menu I would say is mid-priced for a nice restaurant like this."

  • "The restaurant is conveniently located to the Mirvish Theatre. Our waiter was knowledgeable and gave advice when asked. The drinks arrived very quickly, but we did not feel rushed. Once we had decided what to eat, I was impressed that the level of attention to us did not change as it could when all of us ordered from the Winterlicious menu. The presentation of the appetizer, main course and dessert was very pleasing to the eye, the food was warm and delicious. We were very pleased and plan to eat there again when we are in Toronto."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "We went to Bangkok Garden because they were the only restuarant that offered Laksa on their Winterlicious menu. Since we has been on the quest to find the most spicy food in Toronto, we went for it. We were not disapointed. The Laksa was delicisous and spicy! Strongly recommend to try it out. The appertizer and dessert were very good too. Overall we were very happy to pick Bangkok Garden for its Laksa."
