I love going to Baan Thai. Definitely a treat, as the food is consistently excellent. I have nothing bad to say about the service or space, but it's the quality and freshness of the food that has me going back time after time.

Very nice- Enjoyed a recent evening meal on our way through Manhattan. Atmosphere is casual and food was fanatatic. One hint- food is very spicy - their medium spicy is more like very spicy in other Thai restaurants. Ask for mild unless you're brave!

Open until 10 p.m. during the week and right next door to our hotel; I was surprised at how yummy this restaurant was! We had green curry with tofu and some kind of tamarind shrimp and both were very good, as were the crab rangoon which were tastier than most. We got ours to go and it was hot and... More

Had lunch here with my family as we were taking a road trip in Kansas. The food and service were good. Prices are a little high for the portion size and there are no weekday lunch specials. We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews. Sounds like this may be the best Thai restaurant in Manhattan.

We've eaten a a lot of thai places. This place was ok at best, and the service was not good at all. The server barely spoke 3 words to us other than asking what we wanted to eat. We may go back if we really want thai food.

While spending a weekend in Manhattan, we had a dinner at Baan Thai. It was a good dinner and I was pleased with the selections. They have Thai standards like Pad Thai, Pad See Eew, various curries, and other stir fry dishes. My husband and I are vegetarian and this place had many choices and they were receptive to making...

We were walked by several times and not a word spoken. They were not packed so that seemed rude. The server was at our table 3 times...The whole time. But the food was very good. So either we went on an off server day or they just know that the food is good enough you will come back.

The food was okay, not wonderful and the wait staff was less than friendly. We had high expectations. And they were not met.

Baan Thai is absolutely the best Thai food I have ever experinced! They have a daily special that I highly recommend if you want a taste adventure. We always start with hot and sour soup and then usually go with the featured special. Sometimes the wait is longer than desired, so go only if you have plenty of time.! The... More

We drove by here on a Friday night but it was packed. We tried it for an early lunch on a Saturday and got seated right away. Hubby ordered the "angry cowboy". I had the pad see ew (not sure of the spelling). His was yummy but oh so spicy. Mine was mild with a wonderful smooth sauce. The portions... More
