Highly recommend the pad thai here, my wife and I loved it! We really enjoyed a restaurant that had Thai Select Premium standards. Everything tasted better and was so relaxing after having a couples spa treatment next door.

If you like Thai food, you may enjoy it. The buffet includes salad, spring roll, chicken, fish, noodle,rice and make-your-own noddle soup. The reason I gave only an average rating is that I don’t like curry or spicy food.More

The place is showing it’s age and the food is tasting the same from one dish to another. For a $17 buffet there should be more variety and flavour. Plus the lineups for food are long and crowded. This place needs a makeover. It works...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

Description
Housed in a historical building, Bangkok Garden introduced Thai cuisine and culture to Toronto over 30 years ago and is one of only four Thai restaurants in Toronto to be awarded the Thai Select Premium designation from the Thai Consulate - recognizing the authenticity of the food and outstanding service. Acclaimed as one of North America's premier Thai restaurants, Bangkok Garden serves authentic Thai food based on the Thai principle of balancing the five tastes. In addition, our cuisine caters to many dietary restrictions. From spiced stir- fries, to fresh rolls and curries, there are several gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options to suit all. Our bar lounge offers exotic cocktails, martinis, wine and a large selection of international beers. Open for à la carte and buffet lunch Monday to Friday, and dinner Monday to Sunday. Reservations recommended. Private and semi-private group dining available.
