I have been working within a short walk to that restaurant for a while, and have relied on them for quick / healthier food options quite a few times. The menu is pretty good, lots of options there. The food itself is pretty tasty and affordable. The dining room is not very big (maybe 10 tables), but it seems clean,... More

This is the second time I've ordered delivery from Red Chili Garden and I am blown away by the strength of flavours. The price is right, and I will order from them again and again.

Lunch combo: drink, won ton soup, spring roll, chicken thai for $11. Very quick attentive service - Gave a big enough plate as it was very filling. They had a small but nice balcony.

I ordered the Chicken Pad Thai for myself and General Thai Chicken and a side of steamed plain noodles for my boyfriend. The chicken pad thai was NOTHING like... More

By far my families favorite Thai dish is Pad Thai. I ordered, for take out, two Pad Thai's. I actually had to throw it out. It was full of cabbage, wasn't even close to a Pad Thai, I think Thai Express actually comes closer. The staff was very nice, it was a very disappointing meal.

The food is edible but not so authentic. The place hasn't been upgraded since the 1950s. It is a bit dingy but the staff is pleasant enough. It is better than fast places but not by much

Small restaurant in an older house. Clean, decent bathrooms, with some parking in the back. Thai food well prepared. Good selection of dishes. Some alcohol served - beer, wine, limited liquor selection.

Not really classic Thai and certainly not careful to prepare dishes that are traditionally Gluten Free

What an awful experience. The restaurant smelled like grease. Breathing was difficult. We got take-out. Lots of items all terrible. The soup was the worst. Pad Thai noodles were hard rice was hard. Chicken stay was fatty. Very expensive and bad. We would never go again.
