“Original owners Visith and Yupin Laohapant had aspirations of coming to America to share their love of Thailand and Thai food. Visith, a successful restaurant owner and chef in Bangkok for many years moved his family including his wife Yupin, his two sons, Ricky and Aud, and daughter Angsana to America in 1980 to begin fulfilling this dream.
Bangkok Garden opened its doors for the first time in 1983 with a mission to serve authentic Thai food, and to share a little piece of their country with American customers. On the menu you will find recipes that have been passed down through generations made today the same way as many years ago. While dining, you will find various pieces of Thai art and craftsmanship displayed in the restaurant.
After more than 30 years, Bangkok Garden has become a mainstay in Bethesda, MD, and its mission of serving authentic Thai food has not changed. The restaurant is currently managed by Visith’s and Yupin’s three children, and if you stop by for a visit, you may even see Yupin still walking around, greeting guests. Whether you are a long-time customer, or looking to visit for the first time, we look forward to serving you and thank you for visiting our website.”
