Having lived in Thailand I can safely say this is one of the better Thai restaurants around. It's quite small and tables are packed in to maximize numbers, but you won't be disappointed. I've been here at least five times, albeit for lunch, but have sampled a different dish on each occasion. The presentation and flavour were always to a... More

Whilst not real Thai food (most foreigners only have tourist food when abroad and that's what they get at home) the food here was excellent in terms of quantity and quality. European size portions with delicious Southeast Asian flavours. The service was very attentive and friendly. I will be back..

Waiters accommodated a very last minute reservation and were very honest about which dishes were not fully vegetarian (because of fish paste etc)- so top marks for catering for all requests. But I wasn't blown away by the food and every dish I had, I have had better elsewhere. Sad because I was really hoping for exceptional food given the... More

A cosy restaurant with very pleasant staff. Service was very quick and friendly. As noted by other reviewers, the food is amazing. Really well priced, especially for Dublin, the menu is extensive and the food both looked and tasted fantastic with generous portion sizes. A must visit.

The food in baan Thai is always spot on. Perfectly judged spice wise , full of flavour and generous if a little quickly delivered. The restaurant is not plush and tables are tight but the food is the star . We will continue to return for the best Thai in dublin

Fantastic food at very reasonable price. Two courses for 20 euro in Dublin. Seafood soup was excellent as was the Jungle Curry which was nicely hot. Very good service to boot. Highly recommended

I walked by this place every day and only noticed it after friends pointed it out. As it was rumored to be as good as in Thailand, we were eager to try this place. We walked in on a Tuesday night, without making a reservation but this was no problem. The place has an authentic feeling and good atmosphere. Only... More
