I eat here 4 days a week and never get tired. Great spot if you love Thai or if you want to try a new restaurant but don't know where to go.

Visited Baan Thai after a K-State football game. We had no wait and we were seated immediately, although the seating area is fairly small and limited. The food was delicious. We ordered the Gang Gha Ree, Pad Thai and Crispy Garlic Shrimp. All dishes were above average and the portions were of good size. Service took a little long, but... More

I love Thai and have eaten it all over the world. This place is quite good. The service is attentive and the portions are so big you could reasonably consider sharing. A couple things for the owners to consider. It would be nice to have a lunch menu with smaller portions and prices.

This Thai restaurant gave us more generous portions than the other two I have tried. One was in Tennessee the other Missouri. The food was good. I ordered a fried rice dish and my daughters ordered the curry and an appetizer sample platter. All the food was good. The only thing I was very dissatisfied with was the pot stickers.... More

I would move to Manhattan just to eat here daily. The portions are huge...big enough to share. I am addicted to the green curry. Wait staff is kind, greets you with a smike and very helpful. The egg noodle soup is perfect. Roti melts in your mouth. And don't forget dessert!

Thai restaurant with delicious, always fresh meals. While not authentic, their crab rangoons are the best I've ever had. Their curries are delicious. I've eaten in Thailand and this is pretty darn close. Service is fast. Only negative is the small size of the establishment and seats on the west side can get a bit warm in the late afternoon....

Baan Thai has the best Thai food in town, and beats some of my Denver go to's as well. Rich and creamy Tom Kha soup, fantastic Pad Thai and delicious Satay! Their Pumpkin Curry is especially good if they have it as the special. Great service, friendly people and lovely ambience as well.

Visited whilst staying with relations in Manhattan. Bit sceptical this small town serving proper Thai food would be any good. I'm a pretty harsh critic having lived in the Far East previously. Flavours were good and strong and the Green Curry was very authentic except for the added zucchini. Just took that out so no real issue. Recommended if you... More

Read the TripAdvisor reviews and thought we'd give it a try, as we pass through town. Whoa! This is a wonderful Thai restaurant! Great flavors -- nice and spicy -- perfectly cooked veggies..... I plan to come back here the next time in Manhattan.

Good food, friendly fast service (I ordered take away). I had basic pad thai (not adventuresome but a good benchmark). Good for on the road.
