Thai Garden restaurant does not appear extravagant from the outside. Yet, once inside, the ornate decorations and incredible entrees pleasantly surprise guests. Just inside the front door, a full-size gold sculpture greets visitors and traditional tunes of the Orient fill the air. Lunch specials include an entree, soup and salad. For dinner, one top entree is Masaman (Masaman curry with coconut milk, potatoes, onion and peanuts). Red Curry (consisting of red curry paste with coconut milk, eggplant, bamboo shoots, bell pepper and basil) is also popular. Thai Garden is well-known for it's seafood preparations as well.
I ate there previously, but this last trip was bad. Service was good, but I was disappointed in the food. Chicken satay was fresh, but the cucumber chutney served with it was sliced so thinly you couldn't eat it with a fork and the sauce was lacking in taste. Next came tom ga gai soup. Tasty, but not on the spicy side as we ordered. We then had yum talay (seafood salad). Very disappointed with that one. Sauce was not tasty at all and not typical of that dish. Again, not a spicy as we ordered. It also included a breaded piece of fish with it. I have never seen that before, usually the fish is in little chunks. Our pad thai noodles were clumpy, and again not as spicy as we ordered. I don't think I will be back.
Walking into Thai Garden is like taking a step into Thailand. The smells wafting from the kitchen are amazing. We usually order their fresh rolls with tofu (extra peanut sauce), pad thai w/tofu, pad kee mow (sorry for the bad spelling), and masaman curry with chicken. Excellent service, but can get busy. If you're calling in an order to pick up, always give them a good 20-30 minutes before you show up :)
Excellent place to eat. Decor was nice. We went with our 2 young boys and the wait staff was excellent and accommodating. The food was delicious and the portions were quite big.
We are definitely going back there again.
This is by far the best Thai food in north county. Depending on when you go the service may be a little bit slow, but the food makes up for everything. Make sure to try the pineapple fried rice. We have not found a dish we did not like! Everything has just been awesome. Also, whatever the Thai owner says, TRUST HIM. He knows what he is doing and let him help you choose.
Me and my husband have eaten at many thai food restaurants in the area and stopped when we got to this one, once you eat here all the other thai food places taste dull. The Owner and staff are extremely friendly and talk to us all the time. Most of the ingredients are grown by them and the most authentic
taste is a result of that. Try it once and it will be your favorite, promise!
