As I've said I've eaten here on many occasions and never been disappointed. I'm a huge green curry fan and theirs is one of the best i've had and they'll make it as mild or hot as you want as they will with all the dishes. This is a very good Thai restaurant and well worth a visit.

Very good menu and cooking - traditional style Thai (loads of choice and combinations of classic dishes) that is cooked well. Excellent service. Restaurant itself looks a bit dingy with ancient carpets and upholstery. Detracts from the standard of food ?

Visited here in November 2014 and only getting round to writing my review now! Called in here because we were in Ballsbridge and it was raining so didn't want to get any wetter than necessary so, finding ourselves outside the Baan Thai, decided to give it a go. What a stroke of luck that was! It was a cracking restaurant... More

Baan thai has some tasty thai food and has been around for more than 15 years. Prices are a little expensive but the food is worth it. Nice atmosphere, quiet despite frequent hubub outside

I was in Dublin for a short trip and was staying in the Ballsbridge area. I was looking up some reviews on nearby restaurants and decided to check out the Baan Thai. Initially we had walked past the door as it was wedged between two pubs and not clearly visible. Upon entering the establishment I was met with gorgeously ornate... More

Unlike what I'm used to in New York, this Thai food was made out of real ingredients and more expensive. But eating a real dinner after a long day tour was worth the few extra euros.
