I just had the most horrible experience at T. Garden Thai. I eat there probably once a week, and am used to their wonderful service and food. But I had a waiter that must be new. He was horrible. He took my plate before I was done. (I was reading, and didn't have my utensils in hand, so I think... More

I had the special #24 on Friday, March 11, 2016 and it was very good! Came with two crab Rangoon's (my favorite)! There was a lot of food for a lunch and so I needed to take the rest home! Keep up the great work!

I am so happy T-Garden is in town. The only consistently good food in Charleston. Can still be greasy but great service makes up for it.

The best Thai food in the Charleston-Mattoon metropolitan area. Especially tasty are the spring rolls - both meaty AND vegetarian - the pumpkin curry, and both the mango sticky rice and the custard sticky rice. The Thai iced tea and Thai iced coffee rock.

We were in town for a couple of days to attend a family reunion. On the way into town, we saw that there were a couple of Mexican restaurants, and two Thai restaurants. We asked the woman at the front desk desk of our hotel which were the best of each cuisine. But when she said that T-Garden was her... More

The staff and owner is friendly place is clean and you get your food fresh when you order it. Never have to wait very long for anything if you do not like it real spicy just tell them and they will cut back. Daily specials are always good.

This restaurant is fantastic. The food is absolutely delicious. I have never ordered something I didn't love, but I am particularly fond of the curries and the pad se ew. Thai is perhaps my favorite cuisine, and I tend to eat thai food in every city I go, and although T-garden is small town, this establishment is one of the... More

I love this place. Anytime I'm in town, I try to stop by. The hours can be odd, occasionally, but it's their business to run as they like. I think it's more around the holidays that I've noticed this and other events the owners have going on that results in the restaurant being closed for a given day(s). Food has... More
