Loved their pineapple fried rice and pad thai...Fast service and friendly staff. Didn't enjoy the seafood tom yum soup though- it's lacking flavor.

A Victoria institution! Food at both locations is excellent. We usually do take out from Fort Street location and it is always fantastic. The Pad Thai Goong is the best I've ever had. Had lunch recently at the downtown location and it was excellent. Had one of the lunch specials which consisted of many large prawns, squid, peppers, spinach, rice... More

I live in Thailand and when visiting Canada I"m always hesitant about eating in Thai cuisine restaurants. But Baan Thai was a delight with some Thai inspired dishes that were meant for Western tastes and served in large portions. The service was efficient and charming. The restaurant was popular and noisy so I couldn't have a private conversation but this... More

Six of us gathered for an early diner before a show and I would say there were six very satisfied and well-fed guests. There seemed to be only one person serving and taking cash when we arrived. She was amazing. Pleasant, unflappable and apparently she has six hands because she did it all and we did not feel neglected even... More

We had made it to Baan Thai for the first time back in 2003 and continued patronizing the place whenever we were staying in Victoria. Dinner and lunch were always great. We usually picked vegetarian food from the menue and were never disappointed. Lunch included a starter and rice isn't a side order. Waitress was always alert and the service... More

The staff are very friendly! The food was pretty good, we just got Pad Thai take out. It seemed like the prices were a bit high, and the portions were a bit small compared to what I'm used to getting around Seattle. Not bad though!

They serve really good Thai food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is good and they are easy to find with several locations in Victoria. I also use their take out regularly.

I like this place, probably the best of the Thai places in the Capital. I even like the weird dish-water soup stuff you get: super peppery, lots of celery and a bit of carrot. Absolutely delish. Staff: seem nice. Service: seems quick. Food: seems delicious. Location: seems structurally sound. Value: seems reasonable. BUT: Don't order out on New Year's Eve.... More

I have not been to a Thai restaurant for a while, generally finding the portions small and the menus pricy. Baan Thai made me rethink this position. The portions were excellent and the prices reasonable. The blend of spices pleased both of us. We especially like prawn curry soup: great taste, a good-sized 'small' bowl and VERY BIG lightly poached... More

Went for a quick bite to eat..was on the list of restaurants from our hotel, also was chosen because it had lot's of gluten free options, which we needed. Left full and happy, waitress was friendly and efficient. Will return.
