This used to be fabulous. It was, once, the best value meal in town. But boy has it dated. Its like watching a 1980s sit com: funny at the time, but no longer. The food is ok to be honest. The service was surly and charmless. The decor is.. the same as it was since time began. The loos (my... More

We have been visiting Cowes for a few years now and have never tried the Baan Thai as we had a really great Thai restaurant very close to our home in London. We have now moved to Cowes and, as Thai food is our favourite food, we had to venture in. And we are so glad we did, this place... More

Went with a few friends. The older Thai ladies who served us were just wonderful and chatty. The wine was good and the food was great. Good value for money and would definitely go back and recommend.

Possibly the most unwelcoming restaurant have ever visited . I thought Thailand was the land of smiles if this is the case the lady here was possibly asked to leave the country of her birth only to end up in Cowes . On the good side was the food was tasty, reasonably priced, and served failry quickly. Would I go... More

The ladies who served us were wonderful, so friendly perhaps a little slow but I personally don't liked being rushed. They were a little upset because another large party still hadn't ordered food after being in the restaurant for an hour but they were so friendly, kind and funny with us...you reap what you sow in this life and rude...

We was welcomed by a very miserable older lady , who made us feel like we was intruding, eventually she begrudgingly found usvabtable! This poor old lady appeared hard of hearing, partially sighted, and spoke little English, and was waiting on all the tables single handed , no wonder she was miserable. The food when it arrived was very good... More

We arrived late in Cowes and ended up walking around looking for somewhere for dinner. All other restaurants were full apart from here. The service ranged from one miserable lady who seemed annoyed that we walked in to another delightful lady who was very chatty and welcoming! #confused The food was very average... definitely not awful but certainly not great....

This is the worst place to eat in Cowes by some margin. The food was so bad that it was actually quite enjoyable waiting to see what would be served next. Do not take a girlfriend here or she will thing you are trying to dump her.
