Timber Gardens has to be one of London’s most exciting fusion restaurants. Offering a melange of Caribbean, African and Asian cuisines, this Croydon restaurant in the Broad Green neighbourhood is the largest of its kind in the area. Picking the best from the Far East and the West Indies, Timber Gardens’ London Road restaurant is a stylishly appointed place to explore colourful and aromatic dishes from a carefully curated menu. Here, exciting food is matched by enthusiastic, friendly service.
From Ghana to China and back to Jamaica, Timber Gardens offers diners a journey through some of the world’s most exotic cuisines. Fusing Asian, African and Caribbean ingredients and cooking techniques, the range of dishes here is unmatched by any other London restaurant. Dishes such as Ghanaian fufo and tuozaafi, Jamaican jerk chicken and smoky Chinese stir-fry converge on Croydon’s Broad Green in Timber Gardens’ opulent restaurant down London Road. There’s so much to try it’s best to ask for the wait staff’s recommendation – thankfully the team here are just as world-wise as the menu.
Timber Gardens works closely with local suppliers and organic farmers to bring only the freshest produce to their London Road, Croydon kitchen. Thankfully London’s a melting pot for the Asian, African, and Caribbean diaspora, so locally sourced ingredients are fully able to be incorporated into authentic dishes. That said, where necessary, Timber Gardens are also known for importing the more esoteric goods they need to ensure that your dining experience is as it would be if you were eating out in Beijing, Kingston, or Accra. Broad Green locals treat Timber Gardens as a landmark on their culinary maps – if you haven’t experienced this incredible fusion restaurant yet, book now.
Always amazing, great atmosphere and very tasty food. I could go and eat in timber Gardens every day. Staff is always polite and respectful. Palm wine is amazing
Very spacious place with delicious meals, excellent customer services. Easy to locate venue. Very easy parking with African music played along side. A place to have meetings and spend time with friends and families.
The food tasted rather pleasant, it is a nice place but a little empty. The staff member we met was friendly however the service could be faster.
I took my friend out, to celebrate her birthday and this was my first visit. I observed that the decor was very old fashioned, dark brown flowery carpet, dark brown tables and chairs and old light fittings. Majority of the menu was 'not available ' and the hostess did not know anything about the wines available. On a positive note, I ordered jollof rice and fried tilapia and it was DELICIOUS!! Huge great portions! So, I think this is definitely a place that has potential, great central location and someone can cook! Please invest more in the business to provide a better quality of customer service, as I would like to encourage your success.
Live band was brilliant but most of the items on the food menu was unavailable. There should have been more staff serving, it took ages to get served.
Very welcoming place.. Food is great we enjoyed ourselves. Service is excellent. Available parking. Accessible, generous food portions, I will definitely visit the place again
Good atmosphere. but poor service. food wasn't great. only two waitress was on duty on a busy day which means you have to wait longer for your food.
The service was bad , not customer focuses at all. We were left waiting for a long time to pay for the meal, have our plates cleared and had to put takeaway food into the containers ourselves because the kitchen staff were 'busy'! For the expensive prices, we expected much much more. We won't be going back there but wil instead go back to Asafo in Brixton Hill whose food taste delicious and provide excellent service!
We waited too long for our food. The waiter could have been more friendly. The food could have tasted better and prices are too extortionate
