Toronto's First Thai Restaurant
Housed in a landmark historic building, Bangkok Garden introduced Thai food and culture to Toronto over 40 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: sweet, hot, sour, salty and bitter. From fiery stir- fries, to exotic soups and curries, there are several gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options to suit every taste. Our contemporary renovated bar offers Thai Tapas and a beverage menu including exotic Thai cocktails and martinis, a large selection of international beers and an extensive wine list.
Bangkok Garden today
The main dining room is lushly decorated in teak imported from Thailand. A gently flowing river, with a small school of fish and stones collected from the banks of the famous River Kwai in Kanchanabari province is guarded by Naga, a 150-year old solid bronze protective dragon serpent from the home of a prosperous Thai merchant.
Several pieces of statuary throughout the restaurant reflect popular Thai mythology. Furnishings and artifacts were chosen or designed specifically for the restaurant and imported, with special permission, from Thailand. This includes the teak temple bells and the hand-painted blue and white porcelain tableware.
In October of 2013, a renovation transformed the bar & lounge area into a vibrant space for guests to enjoy a selection of Thai bites paired with exotic cocktails and martinis. The new interior with its bright colours and contemporary ambiance is a wonderful contrast to the warm teak interior of the main dining room.
