This establishment has incredible drinks (oatmeal cookie and chambord kamikaze martinis) and the food was delicious also (sampler, fresh garden rolls, and yellow curry). The atmosphere was very pleasant and service was great.
I just had the worst customer service I have ever had while dining at this restaurant. Our server, who is also apparently the manager, was talking on the phone while taking our order. She literally interrupted me in the middle of saying my order to talk to whoever was on the phone. She was very rude and did not seem to care when we told her why we were upset with the service.
This is my first time ever writing a review as I usually don't care enough to go to the trouble, but this place was so terrible that I had to say something. I would neverdineat this restaurant again. The other server seemed nice, however if our server was the owner I do not want to support her business.
update for fabulous Thai food – Went here for a birthday "lunch" in mid-afternoon with two teenagers. They loved the new appetizer of thin chicken and cheese fried together. Two "pad" dishes, pineapple fried rice and won ton soup were all really good and prepared quickly. Owner "V" is very amiable and has been a steadfast contributor to the downtown effort. Try her out for lunch or dinner.
not good place to eat – this place is and waiter @waitress are unpredictable the food not that great guys don't go to tiger.
Raw shrimp with no apology. – My husband and I went to Tigers Garden for our date nite. We ordered our appetizer ...which was some sort of shrimp wrapped in rice paper. My husband bit into the shrimp and it was under cooked. Like the shrimp was still raw and gray looking. We sent the dish back and explained why. Absolutely no compensation or apology was offered. The waitress in fact acted like we had bothered or annoyed her. Needless to say we will not be dining in this restaurant again. I absolutely do not recommend this retaurant!!!
Not Impressed. – The restaurant was really clean, but our server looked to be a 14 y.o. kid who looked to be working at his parents place for the very first time. My wife had teriyaki chicken and it was tough, dry and way overcooked. She also had potstickers, which just looked to be deep fried and over-fried until the point of being dry. As for myself, I had California rolls which were OK, but the shrimp fried rice I ordered tasted sweet and they didn't even bother to pull the tails off the shrimp! I think if we go back, we'll be sticking to drinks at the bar...
Best Thai Ever – This place is so cute and friendly, Best pad thai, and i HIGHLY recommend the Tom Kha soup. Generous portions, fast service, pick up can be done in as little as 15 minutes. When we first moved to Vancouver, this was the first restaurant we tried. The lounge has a cute feel, good martinis and art work. It's a popular place, so seating on the weekends can be tough, parking downtown can be difficult.
If you order 4 store, you might get hot, you might not, depending on who is in the kitchen. I've ordered 2 star and gotten spicy off the chart, and then ordered 4 star on a different day that tastes more like 2 star. I went to California and ordered Tom Kha soup from a different place, and it was TOTALLY different, not good at all. FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS FOOD
Satisfy your Thai cravings – Our favorites are the crying tiger, pad thai and the red curry. The only downside is that you want to eat way too much.
Tasty, with pleasant atmosphere – What a lovely little restaurant!
We had a very enjoyable meal at Tiger's Garden last week. I was hoping the food would be as good as Thai Orchid, and my initial verdict is that it is at least as good. I had an imaginative mixed seafood red curry, which was both different and delicious. The service, location, looks and feel of the place were so comfortable and welcoming that I am looking forward to my next visit. The price is moderate.
Amazingly authentic Thai food right over the bridge! – For my husband and I, Thai cuisine reigns supreme. We've had Thai food all over the country, and that's why we were so excited to find Tiger's Garden in our own backyard. They are located in downtown Vancouver, right across the street from Esther Short Park, a beautiful location! Parking is never much of a problem and the food is amazing.
Try the garlic chicken, the Pad See Ewe, Spring Rolls, Potstickers, or pretty much anything else on the menu, and you will be delighted. They also have an amazing happy hour, which lasts all day Sunday, afternoons from 4-6pm and after 9pm. We often go there and just make a meal of their Happy Hour; that's how much we love their lounge and the appetizers on the Happy Hour menu! All in all, you just can't go wrong with Tiger's Garden if you love Thai food and customer service that is top-notch!
