We enjoyed enormously our pre theatre dinner with amazing friendly service and attention to detail. We ordered a variety of dishes, which contained wonderful flavours throughout. I highly recommend the Thai Garden for its uniquely intimate surroundings with kind, friendly faces serving the most delicious food.

When you have time and you enjoy the best authentic tastes of Thailand, this is the place to go. A superb full menu, charming décor, and Min and his staff give great service with the occasional floor show. Thoroughly recommended.

Situated in a quiet city centre side street with free on-street parking after 6pm, the Thai Garden is a cosy little restaurant with unfailingly friendly and courteous staff. The menu includes the usual favourites (mixed starters, red and green curries, noodles and stir fries), all freshly prepared and packed with flavour. If you've never tried Thai cuisine before, it's a... More

Relatives down for the weekend again and although we tried to promote other Thai restaurants in the area the Thai Garden in Paignton was the only option! So despite our best efforts we had to eat through a range of succulent starters, five different rice dishes from a choice of nine, various noodle dishes and share main courses from Satay... More

We were visiting Paignton for the weekend and decided we were in the mood for Thai food. The Thai Garden was on the outskirts of the town and is not too big, although there are plenty of tables, so we decided to book ahead. We were glad we did as the restaurant filled up very quickly after 7.30pm. We decided... More

My husband took me to The Thai Garden for my birthday treat and a treat it was. The food was so tasty, I've had Thai before but this was by far the best I've tasted. A wide variety of dishes and if you didn't know what to order the staff were keen to help you make a choice based on... More

What a wonderful evening we had at the Thai Gardens last night. We were a party of 15 and we were made very welcome. We had already made our choices from the extensive menu in advance and when we arrived table plans were drawn up and the correct meals were delivered to each person by name, a really efficient service....

I visited this restaurant with a large group of ladies for a birthday party. It was my first experience of Thai food and I was very happy with it. Thai Gardens have a very extensive and inexpensive menu which our party took full use of. Without exception the food was well presented by attentive staff and most enjoyable. On a... More

Had a veg platter for starters and really tasty. Main courses equally tasty and including three beers and two Yasmine teas bill was very reasonable given the quality of food. Definitely recommended!!!'
