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

One of our best meals in Thimphu. The food was delicious and very authentic and the icing was the lovely welcome and service that we received during our meal.

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!

This place is hard to find (it even took my son a couple tries before he knew we were climbing the right set of stairs - and he had eaten there before). It was worth the climb for the good Thai food and service.

This is not Bangkok, but you can probably get a better pad Thai than you can whip up at home. Very good green curry and greasy spring rolls last time I went.

Baan Thai is on the fifth floor of a shopping building, a little hard to find. Good Thai food in Thimphu. Excellent basil chicken, green coconut curry with chicken and egg plant, and Thai spring rolls.

Thimphu, the small capital of magical Bhutan, is wonderful and a real experience. However, with locals almost exclusively feeding on Ema Datse (cheese, chili and rice) Thimphu is not a gourmet capital by any means. So where to go? there is a very small handful of places such as the Baan Thai on Norzin Lam, the main street. if you... More

This is an authentic Thai restaurant, on the fourth floor of a nondescript building in downtown Thimphu. My partner and I enjoyed a fresh papaya salad, vegetable pad Thai, and vegetable spring rolls, and all three dishes tasted freshly prepared and delicious. Prices are very inexpensive. For a welcome break from the food available in the tourist hotels, I can... More

The food is very good so if you would like to have a chicken curry without bones in it, this is the place to be. If you get seats next to the window, you have a very nice view over the city as well (they are on the 4th floor, so you can oversee the area). Now they are quite... More
