Karachi is not known for best of Thai restaurants but Baan Thai is an exception. From ambiance to food, its all above average. The warm welcome wins your heart and the expertise of order taker and attentiveness service crew all is very good. Menu is carefully designed to serve Karachites who prefer local touch in taste. Prices are fair to... More

This place offers the nearest to authentic thai food. But they probably, to match the taste of Pakistanis, don't cook it spicy enough.

Baan Thai is located on 2nd lane in Zam Zama area of Defense Housing Society. A dinner for two would cost about $25. Their soups are good. Food is good but not great

When I went to Baan Thai (House Of Thai) I was greeted kindly by the service and was treated to a delicious meal that was very affordable. My favorite is the red snapper fish and the Chicken Waan Tons. If you are craving anything, you want to crave Baan Thai! The indoor decor, was very nice and seemed like a... More

Ever since we started dining there we got addicted to it, specially their green curry is matchless. The restaurant is owned by a friend who himself goes to Thailand to bring spices and other condiments during the month of RAMADAN (when the restaurant is closed every year). Their coconut ice cream is the best in town.
