Very Happy with Baan Thai in Seaside

Every once in a while we have lunch at Baan Thai in the University Plaza in Seaside. It is our favorite Thai restaurant, and we have always had an outstanding meal at modest prices. We like it so much that sometimes we take friends there, and we have had small groups there for a birthday lunch.

My wife and children had dinner and it was not disappointing. I liked how clean the premises was for a Saturday night. But make sure you don't go too high on the spice scale. Medium is plenty. The portions were generous and we all left full with a bag of leftovers for later. I would recommend Baan Thai in Seaside... More

This restaurant is convenient to the Embassy Suites hotel in Seaside/Montery but it is tucked way back into a corner of a little nondescript strip of stores in something called University Plaza. if you find it you will be happy. Service was excellent and food was great. We'll definitely go there again when in the neighborhood.

Came for a quick lunch. It's fast, friendly and oh so delish. Only gave it 4 stars as it is a dive and needs a bit of cleaning and remodeling.

I have been loving this restaurant for about 17 yrs. It was the second thai place I had ever been to. All my thai friends eat there and that should tell you something. The food is outstanding and truthfully I compare any other to them. I have never had a bad meal there and Tom and Jum are so gracious.... More

This was an awesome restaurant! It's in a corner of a strip mall so it is a bit hard to find. The atmosphere is nice but plain. The food was amazing. I got chicken pad thai and it was phenomenal!!! My friend got it too and loved it. My mom got the basil chicken and said it was good. Next... More

The ladies are always welcoming and take very good care of us whether we eat in or take it to go. The food is always delicious and lunch menu is a great deal. We eat lunch there quite often.

Baan Thai is by far the friendliest place in Seaside. A quick smile and mostly quick service greet you during the busy and not so busy times. I Love love love the pumpkin curry with the red rice, or the coconut milk Tom Ka Gai in a hot pot. My next favorites are the "street noodles" pad Thai, with a... More

This place has very consistant quality but sometimes runs out of items on the menu. It can get pretty busy but the service is quick. I love the soups and the shimp wrapped like little baby buntings in wonton wrappers. For a long time it was called Barn Thai due to a signage spelling error. We still call it that.
