Thai Chili Gardens is one of a growing number of restaurants in the Provo and Salt Lake areas that believe
the food offered to customers can go beyond the traditional "dumbed down" flavors that have typically been
served in ethnic eateries.
With an upscale decor, Thai Chili Gardens does not have outrageous prices for the food that is offered. The customer is not insulted by long listings of "safe" non-spicy dishes, but a fairly good variety of Thai and Lao food is served. I asked the owner which dishes were Lao, and he said that "all the dishes" are Thai and Lao. Although I recognized some Lao dishes such as Laab salad, I would say almost everything on the menu is Thai.
I ordered Pad King, a Thai ginger dish that is always good but seldom done in a style that I consider authentic Thai. The one here had very vibrant, offsetting flavors, but was really too sweet for my taste. I thought it was very good, but probably not the best version available.
Thai Chili Gardens is definitely exposing Orem to better ethnic food than I probably expected to find here. Keep in mind that if you are a Mormon missionary, you get a discount! I would recommend eating here even if you do not get a discount.
