The lunch buffet offers lots of variety - even for vegetarians - a great made to order soup bar, and fresh fruit and custard style dessert. The service is excellent... fine dining scale.

Our party of four enjoyed our dinner at Bangkok Garden. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing. Try the mango salad. It was refreshing and delicious! We also enjoyed the pad Thai and shrimp and pineapple curry. The service was professional and friendly.

Great spot for a date, business meeting, or to take out of towners...this is an elegant, quiet, impressive room where the food is as good as the ambiance. Enjoy an unhurried lunch or dinner in a lovely, high-ceilinged space which feels calm and peaceful.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

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.
