The food at this Restaurant used to be okay, but now it has really dropped to poor. The food was never amazing as it is not authentic Thai food, they serve frozen pre-prepared (and possibly pre-bought) starters, frozen chips and use chilli flakes instead of fresh chillies. None of the ingredients are very fresh either, if at all. We have... More

This place is really nice for lunch. You might want to reserve your table as it's always busy, especially on Fridays. Very good food, nice atmosphere and good prices.

Fancied something a little different and we used trip advisor to get some reviews. We liked the review from this restaurant so decided to give it a try. Food was lovely and fresh and the portions sizes were very big. Both of us order the homemade curries at different strenghts and wow....you have to go and try for yourself. The... More

Ok so its the only Thai in Ballincollig these days, but it's still very good. We went here one friday when we had no other restaurant booked and it was late(ish). No problem getting a table as most of the business seems to be take away, the restaurant itself was fairly standard neither too big or too small with the... More

I am a Vegetarian and got the pad thai noodles they were unreal!!!So tasty and the portion was huge! The flavours were amazing... More

I've always had lovely meals here. The place is spacious and clean, usually no problem getting a parking space, the waitresses are friendly and efficient and the food is great..although a little pricey. I've never been disappointed here. Be careful of the really spicey dishes though...because I think they ARE just that...VERY spicey....I go for mild dished myself.

I've been to this restaurant many times and the only dishes that is nice are the curries. The chips served as a side are unfortunately frozen, which is very off-putting as it doesn't take long to make homemade chips. The red, green and spicy rich curries are all nice, but there is no place for pineapple in Thai curries. When... More

Banna Thai's green curry is the best I've ever had - EVER! Their version is my favourite dish in the whole world and I have lost count how many times I've ordered it as take away over the years. The vegetarian version is packed with a huge variety of vegetables and tofu (if desired) - and there's an even healthier... More
