Hopefully they change the name to Dharma Garden here on Insider Pages otherwise no one is going to find it. Dharma Garden does mock "meat" very well and has a wide range of dishes. Connected to the restaurant is a Thai gift shop and the waitstaff all wear traditional dresses. Sometimes they can be off on the timing of the dishes so one arrives much earlier than the other and other times we have been served dishes that are way too spicy even after specifying that we only wanted it "medium spicy" so beware. The vegetables are always very fresh and the rice is really cooked well.

This is our favorite restaurant in the city. It is by far the best Thai we've found and at a good price. The atmoshere is unique and fun, but the real star is the healthy food. All dishes are vegetarian or seafood and we've yet to find a bad dish there. The stand-out appetizer is the Chive Dumplings, and the Red Curry is scrumptious. It's BYOB with no corking fee so drink up.

Pros: Healthy Food, BYOB, Authentic and Spicy

Cons: Service, No Parking

This is a great place to go if you're wanting something fresh and healthy to eat. Since they've opened, they've improved their dishes [it seems they used to burn their noodles] and have some original takes on standard dishes. The pad thai is full of fresh crunchy shredded vegetables. Service isn't always great -- they'll serve one person at the table and not the other for 5 minutes -- but everyone is friendly and willing to offer suggestions.

Pros: great for vegetarians, inexpensive, very fresh food

Cons: no soda or liquor, hit-or-miss service, ingredients vary

This city bristles with Thai noodle shops, but Dharma Garden is very different and truly special.

The cuisine is authentic and imaginative. With her eye for fresh, seasonal produce, the chef uses such unexpected items as pumpkin and serves her curries in a coconut (which is part of the dish.)

No meat is served, only fish and seafood, and the owner has a philosophy behind the dietary choices, including all manner of fruit juices and teas.

The restaurant itself is convivial and festive, with tropical decorations and an adjacent gift shop.

But mostly, the food is great, plentiful and cheap, dished up with great friendliness and panache. Usually Ning will throw in something extra that "you must try." Every time I eat there, I learn something new. One word of caution: when the menu classifies a dish as "spicy," she really means it.

The owner is friendly and chats with guests. Tranquil setting, and large portions of healthy, but still delicious food!
