Best Thai food on Guam.

I have eaten here several times, the food is worth the horrible service. Fresh ingredients decent portion size. Authentic cuisine. You can order it from no spice to Thai spicy. Excellent food!

Enjoyed the lunchtime buffet here. Had to wait a few minutes as the place was full. There is lots of choice; help yourself. I began with the soup which was good but VERY hot so beware! Whilst my wife and I had a beer our friend chose the iced tea which proved to be very sweet. However overall the food... More

We loved Ban Thai. The food was fresh, pretty tasty and the portions were generous. Good wine selection and good prices, indoor and outdoor seating and a very friendly staff. We lingered for a few hours and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Top choices were the papaya salad, red curry, fresh spring rolls - beef salad was a bit disappointing but still... More

We ate their after 8 pm and we were lucky to get a table. If you like spicy food, do not order medium, but rather hot. We ordered medium hotness and it was too mild. It is a very relaxed atmosphere. We ate inside with the air conditioning, but the table outside were more popular.

One of my favorite Thai restaurants. It's a buffet, it's delicious and affordable! I just wish it was a little closer to my office.

We ordered takeout food from here and were very happy with everything we ordered. The Pinang chicken curry was amazing! We also loved the Thai omelette, pad thai, green curry, fried rice. Although we were taking out, the service was very good. The staff offered a seat and some snacks while we waited and supplied us with extra disposable plates... More

Recommended as the most popular Thai in Tumon, the food was mediocre. The retro atmosphere was pleasant, but the air conditioning blew directly on ours and most of the tables, reducing the comfort of sitting through a meal there.

Sitting in my office chair longing to be in Guam. Why? My favorite Thai food anywhere. Ban Thai is amazing. Penang Cicken Curry. Mango fried rice, stuffed chicken wings. But alas I'm 7,000 miles away. If you are in Guam you will be doing your tongue and tummy a favor by eating at this restaurant.

This was my family's favorite Thai restaurant on Guam. There are admittedly many choices and favorites vary by personal taste, but this is a good restaurant in a great location on Guam. I've eaten Thai in California, Washington DC and other places in America between the two and Ban Thai matches my Thai experiences over the years. Tourists and locals... More
