It seemed to be some kind of a cheaply decorated Chinese restaurant. The waiter did not know where the bathroom was located, did not bring the required cultlery,... More

If you've decided to go to baan Thai then its best you head to their branch on 26th street. The one in Dolmen mall, Clifton, reeks of a disgusting smell. If that's not bad enough, the waiters at this branch are unconcerned with what you require, and the food is quite average as compared,to their other branch. Avoid this place!... More

The owner of the original Zamzama start-up was known to us and often confided about the pains he had taken to import chefs and genuine Thai spices for the cuisine - which was the secret of the restaurant's success. Unfortunately, it... 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.
