Good food. OK ambience

The food was really good. It was a touch too spicy for us even though we had asked for less spicy food, but it had all the right flavours of good thai food. We felt the ambience was a bit too cold to a point where being there made us uncomfortable. I don't know if this was because we were... read more

Baan Thai has pretty good Thai food. I don't like the building the restaurant is located in though. You have to walk through and absolutely disgusting building to get to the restaurant. I've been there twice and both times they were out of egg rolls. However, their food is good. I have had their phad thai and sweet and sour... More

This restaurant is hidden on the 4th floor of a shopping complex opposite to Center Mall on Norzin Lam road. I had to call the restaurant to find it. It is clean , peaceful and well decorated. I was greeted with a hot towel and delicious jasmine tea. The servers are courteous and take time to explain the menu. I... More

I haven't been back to the Baan Thai since it was opened years ago but it's good to know that some things can get better over time. The thai food was rich in flavor and the portions were great! The prices are affordable and the service spot on. I am a fussy foodie but i enjoyed my meal from the... More

Our tour guide took us to this little place called Baan Thai. Apart from the cutest babies that I saw in Bhutan, Baan Thai boasts of really good Thai food. We had an amazing lunch at this adorable place! Also, the set menu looked really delicious! MUST EAT here!
