Sad Decline; Once Was Great – This USED to be our favorite Asian restaurant. This was the place we took our friends from out of town. They USED to have the BEST sesame chicken I have ever had. Sadly, their quality has declined recently and the food went from outstanding to substandard. What an unfortunate disappointment.
Aurora's Worst Asian – The prior negative views pretty much cover it. If you want good Thai or Asian food in Aurora, check out Thai Basil. It's in the same area and the food is cheaper and way, way better.
The service is even worse, which adds insult to injury. Avoid this place!
Thai Garden is Thai Basil – Note that Thai Garden has the same menu/logo as Thai Basil with other locations in the metro area. Looking at some of the prior reviews I was surprised to see such negativity. Many of the dishes are Americanized Chinese dishes, but they do have some good choices. All and all, the food is much better than most strip mall asian food (and even Panda Express! - see prior review). I have been eating at Thai Garden/Thai Basil at least once per month for 9 years. The Siracha Beef, Thai Fried Rice, Pad Thai and the Curry dishes are all very good. Stay away from the seafood dishes and the crispy duck.
such of a rip off! – nice enviornment but horrible food. i love thai food very much, and i have dinned in many thai restaurants, this is one found unappreciated. the thai spice soup is way too much salt than you can digest. so is the pad thai is heavily sauced. services is great, however the waiting time is terrible. spending 45mins wainting for something that weren't even edible, family got frustrated, that was such a bad experience. not to mention how unpleasant the foods are, things are over priced. it doesn't worth a penny to dine in. it is a failure to represent thai food, shameful!
Worst Thai food I ever Had- – We tried this place because we live close and LOVE thai food. Tried the Pad Thai. I realize all places make Pad Thai a little different but this was totally unedible. It was by far the worst Pad Thai I have ever had. I do not recommend thia restaurant based on this one meal but I really think Pad Thai is a basic Thai dish and if it is gross the rest of the food can't be that great either. So, I would say cross the street to Panda Express. I know it's a chain but you know you will get good asian food.
My gas is still working its way out – Okay,
Let's get this straight. If this is supposed to be an example of Asian-Fusion, then i am not at all a fan of this food concept. The food here is overly saturated, and down-right heavy. If its sweet then you feel like you've just ingested a pound of sugar. If its salty, then you are guaranteed an unwelcome exploration of high sodium in your bloodstream. It is unlikely that I will return to this establishment as it is so far from Thai food that it is hard to claim it as any type of food but a Dinty Moore special of third rate heavy gravy plastered over what could be noodles.
On the bright side, the service is pleasant and the restaurant workers were quick to serve and were very willing to substitute or help out with fixing any problems one may have with the dishes. However, in the end my indigestion and unsatisfied taste buds have won out and declared this a monumental one stop that I don't care to repeat.
