Heard so much about this place and had to try it. This Thai restaurant was everything and more. Outstanding food !!! My wife and I were extremely impressed with the freshness. We will be back soon!!!

The ambience and quiet atmosphere of the restaurant was a plus. The Pad Thai and Sea Bass were served promptly, was tasty and hot as in temperature. The servers were pleasant and unobtrusive. I would recommend this restaurant.

Great ambience, good service, convenient location, but the food was very bland. I ordered a three chili pepper entrée and was told it was not really that hot but they could spice it up. It was still not spicy. Both our dishes were bland. Our server Jeremy was very helpful, and pleasant.

Nice decor and attentive service. The food was decent. Creative names for the dishes which made the food more interesting e.g. 'Demon's Dare' instead of 'spicy thai beef'. Dishes are overpriced though - would probably only go again if there was a promotion or discount of some kind.

The food was average but the service was pretty fast. You got quite a bit of food and the ambience was nice. The decor was amazing and great if you want to go on a date.

They have an extensive gluten-free menu. Or waitress also had the chef adjust another dish so it would be gluten free.

The buffet has enough variety for lunch. What I most enjoyed was the request-to-order Thai soup. The lady was very nice and provides good suggestions. Our two servers were also very attentive and personable. We were slightly disappointed about our table location. We were smacked right beside a big retirement party and it was quite a noisy experience to say the least. We thought we could have been accommodated on the 2nd floor, where it is a bit peaceful or the party could have been there while the rest stayed downstairs. In my opinion (and because of the noise), I see a lot of customers leave and not bother with desserts or coffee. Perhaps the host(s) could have planned this a little better.

My wife I and went to this restaurant for dinner. The service & food quality were excellent. The set menu let us try several dishes even though it was just the two of us.

This is my second time visiting Bangkok Garden and it was as enjoyable as the first visit. The food was very tasty, great spicing/flavour and nice presentation of the meal. The staff is very friendly, attentive, diligent and accommodating. The lighting in the restaurant gives a nice ambiance to the place (not too bright or dark). This is a great place to visit whether on a date or spending time with friends!

We visit Bangkok Gardens often, because of its tranquil oasis-in-the-city atmosphere, and (usually) excellent food and service. On our most recent visit, last weekend, however, we ordered one of our favourite dishes, the steamed ginger fish -- and were disappointed. Instead of the fresh fish that has usually been served, our rainbow trout turned out to be frozen, without the delicate flavour and texture of the fresh fish.

We asked the waiter to pass our critique on to the manager, and hope he did. This is a high-standard restaurant that shouldn't let itself down by cutting corners. (It's also not that far from the St. Lawrence market, where some of the best fish in the city is easily available.)

This isn't the first time we were disappointed in this dish, which began on the menu as a delicious fillet of fresh salmon. That, for a time was replaced by farmed tilapia, a very unhealthy choice that we avoided. We had high hopes that the trout would be a return to its original form.

Otherwise, the restaurant is as charming as ever, with outstanding and helpful service. It is also one of the few in Toronto where you can reserve a table on a weekend, and spend a relaxing evening in lovely surroundings without having to shout above obnoxious music or compete with people at nearby tables out-screaming the din.

We ended dinner by sharing scoops of creamy coconut and mango ice cream and choosing from their bevy of exotic teas.

We hope by our next visit that the fish is back to its fine standard.

This is my second time dining here, I do enjoy it and it's close to the Ed Mirvish theatre. The only thing that I had an issue was that I had asked for a mild dish and it was very spicy. The waiter had overheard me making this comment to my friend and asked if it was too spicy. I said yes, but we had limited time because we were seeing a show. I ate my food, but didn't enjoy it as much as I knew I could because it was really spicy!!!

The food was good, the service excellent. A little pricy but it is downtown.

We were seated in a dark corner next to the fire door although the restaurant was virtually empty. The service was friendly and efficient. We ordered 4 dishes, but the table was so small that we had to shuffle the plates for the entire meal just to fit them on the table. The pad thai was very good and the best dish of all the ones ordered. The mango salad was awful. The mango was cut in french fry shapes and so unripe that it was not even half eaten. We complained to the server who said he would mention it to the chef. We never heard anything further. The pattaya grilled chicken and steamed ginger fish were tasty, but not something we would order again. The food is not as good as in past experiences, but the ambiance remains romantic and charming.
