Having dined in some fabulous thai restaurants both in Thailand and the UK I was torn between rating this establishment as poor or average. In the end I came down with average. I know Burton is not the culinary centre of the world but for some reason I expected a bit more. I had ribs for starters and after biting... More

Called in for a quick lunch on a Saturday. The price was £7.00 for starter and main followed by coffee or tea. The service was excellent with advice given on what dishes to have. The Thai green curry was lovely as was the pork red curry, which was a little hotter. Will certainly be returning and were advised on dishes... More

We were staying nearby and arrived on a wet Saturday night in February, thinking that we wouldn't need to book a table. It was packed! Despite not having a booking, the waiter found us a table and we had a really excellent meal. The choice of dishes was extensive, and the quality was great. The presentation and service was very...

A gorgeous meal, beautiful service. Again, Baan Thai made an ordinary evening into a fantastic one. It's not the cheapest place to eat - meal for two with 1 bottle of House red was £60, but the food quality makes it (virtually) worthwhile. Would have rated it 5 Excellent but for the cost.

I was a frequent visitor to this restaurant when I lived in Burton on Trent 8 years ago. We recently made a trip to Burton and went out of our way to visit this restaurant. I wish we hadn't bothered! The waiter was curt and had obviously never heard the term "customer facing". The starters were ok. I had Thai... More

We have been going to the Baan Thai ever since it opened and every meal has always been fabulous. The food compares well with any Thai restaurant in the country and also with restaurants we have been to in Thailand. The service is wonderful. You only have to get near the bottom of your glass and you'll be offered another... More

Admittedly we were late diners but that is no excuse for bad manners from the staff. Excellent food but very rushed service - if they were prepared to let us in and charge us the full amount for arriving the same time as earlier clients I could understand but they were just rude.

It was the first time we had been and could not believe how good it was, we were in Thailand last year on holidays and this place brought memories of this, The décor is very Thai and the service and menu's are first class too. The price is good remembering you are getting top quality fresh food. We will go... More

I visit Baan Thai for lunch almost every other week with family or friends. They have an extensive lunch menu which is fantastic value for money. The waiters are always very attentive and know mine and my families orders off by heart now. They are so friendly and often ask after my family when I visit with friends. I only... More
