Superb Thai Food, Very Pleasant Staff

We make it a point to eat here when we are in Dublin. Ballsbridge is where the US Embassy is, nice neighborhoods. Baan Thai is on the first floor up and is a bit dark, but nicely decorated. The food is exceptional and the service is equally good. I can't give you a hint on the menu as we've... read more

Food was pretty tasty. Freshly prepared and well seasoned. Service was average, but in their defense, they were quite busy

We had a lovely dinner, with a very tasty wine and food. I liked shrimps fried and with vegetables. Good choice. Restaurant is quite and very romantic.

We love it. Only pity is having too much crackers so I couldn't finish my main course. Love the sour and spicy soup! The chicken lollipop is also very good!

We ordered a chicken green curry and a stir fry chicken and both were as good as we'd had locally in Thailand, especially the Green Curry! Super stuff! A great Pick! Authentic and Very well made food!

Very friendly welcome and attentive staff. A bit cramped for space but not uncomfortable. As for the food..., superb! Full of flavour and generous portions. We will go again.

Visited here for dinner before a concert in the Aviva! They made room for us without a reservation which was great! Fantastic food and service! Nice little Thai restaurant

I have to look for few minutes up and down the road to find this door compressed by two other places. You have to walk upstairs to the first floor to find the restaurant. The place is quite dark but in summer you get sunlight till late so it's ok. As i sat they brought some chips and iced lemon... More

Visited with my husband whilst staying at nearby Bewleys Hotel. We went for the early bird two course meal @ €18 each. I had the prawn soup for a starter and hubby had spring rolls and for mains we both had chicken stir fry with rice. The service from the moment we went in was excellent - very nice staff... More

Found this gem by chance while staying at Bewleys nearby. Could not fault it. Doesn't look much from outside. Restaurant is upstairs. Was with my wife. We both had the Kalamari for starter. Cooked to perfection. Not the slightest bit chewy. Came with a small amount of salad with the most delicious dressing, slight hint of ginger. Sweet chilli sauce... More
