Excellent sushi and service, plus GF options

Tried Baan Thai for the first time in February and was incredibly impressed. For a restaurant that boasts a very large menu, the meals were delicately prepared with nuanced flavors and huge portions. As a gluten-free and vegan diner, there were also lots of options (a nice perk). Service was also... read more

I've been coming here for over 6 years and I've always had great meals here. Compared to other Thai restaurants in Waltham, this is probably the most authentic, from their noodle dishes (i.e., Pad Thai and Pad See Ew), Siamese Eggplant, to any of their curry dishes. Their prices are within the range of other ethnic restaurants in the area... More

Baan Thai is conveniently located on Main Street, more or less across from City Hall. It offers decent Thai food as well as sushi in a pleasant setting, with good service. The menu is extensive, portions are good-sized, and the prices are reasonable. We came at lunch and had several dishes, all of which were pretty good but bland -... More

We stopped here without knowing anything about the restaurant - just passing through the area and were in the mood for Thai. It was very good! The lunch specials give you so much food for a reasonable price. Soup was great. Entrees were very good too. Restaurant was almost empty when we were there (a bit on the late side)... More

I was visiting from South Carolina and was up to try something different. That was Saturday night and all the places was full including Baan Thai. Very quickly they find as a table for four. We all order different meals but every one was delicious. Service was outstanding. Prices very reasonable and the most important qualify of the food outstanding.

Baan Thai is one of our favorite Thai restaurants in the area. The prices are reasonable, quality of the food is superb, and the service is excellent. The crispy pad thai is out of this world delicious.

I've been to this restaurant a few times but only found out about their lunch boxes this time around. For $12 you get an entre choice, a salad, 2 fried dumplings, 2 spring rolls, rice, a Tom Yum soup, and fried bananas for dessert. It's worth every penny.

I'm in love with Ban Thai's duck green curry. Generous portions, beautiful plate presentation. Cholly wants to make sure you're happy.
