Best Thai restaurant on Guam

Whether it's lunch or dinner, you can't go wrong with Ban Thai! Their lunch offers a variety of food at a reasonable price, but come early as they do get crowded for lunch. If you've never tried Thai food, this is the best time to try out their dishes to find out which dish you prefer, as they... read more

My first 2 choices of beer were unavailable. "Only Singa" she said. The Lemongrass chicken was so good, almost excellent. My wife had the Basil chicken and it wasn't like any basil chicken I have ever had in the past.

I was presently surprised with Ban Thai. First of all, I am not the biggest fan of Thai Curry, and in several restaurants I have been to the entire place permeates of it. A friend was moving off island, and this was the choice for lunch, but it did not have any smell at all to it! I was also... More

The lunch buffet was from 1030-1400. For $11.95 the food was good. The staff were friendly. My only complaint was that it was packed.

Stopped in here my last night on Guam. Didn't want to be too adventurous with 24 hours of flying ahead of me so I stuck with the classic Pad Thai. I got the medium sauce since I do eat a lot of spicy foods, but don't like my face to be numb from the heat. This was a good (or... More

As is the case for many establishments in the Tumon bay area, this is another restaurant that pleases the masses. However, if you are a genuine Thai food aficionado, you will be disappointed.

No complaints about our visit. The food was good. It was reasonable and plentiful. We ate around 5:30 and had no difficulty getting a table. The place is popular and tables filled up rapidly.

The food was great, though it was very crowded and the service was a little slow. We had cocktails, and they weren't very strong but they were okay. I had the cashew chicken and it was amazing!
