Thai Garden Restaurant
Thai Garden Restaurant's chefs carefully spice a menu of Thai cuisine awarded Best Southeast Asian fare by Salt Lake magazine in 2006 and 2007. In the dining room, ornate wood dividers stand stark against exposed brick, displaying intricate carvings of animals, workers, and Judd Nelson with fist triumphantly raised. Floor-to-ceiling front windows cast light on dishes of chicken, beef, pork, or tofu coated in flavors such as red curry and spicy Thai basil sauce, and customized to one of five levels of spice. Classic pad thai and pan-fried flat noodles conveniently fill entree-shaped voids in diners' stomachs with fresh sprouts, meatballs, and ground peanuts.
