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

Each time I've eaten here was around lunch time. The buffet has a good variety to choose from and is a favorite with the kids. You may want to go early before the lunch rush because it gets very crowded and the wait line for a table can easily extend out the front door.

Atmosphere of the place was very ethnic. I felt like we were in Thailand. They have great variation to choose from. I wish stuff would be more polite and smile. Our waiter never came to ask if we need any refill or something else. Otherwise great place

Ordered the Pad Thai and the Thai spring rolls. Both dishes were excellent! Some Thai restaurants here on the island are a bit seedy. I thought the atmosphere at Ban Thai was welcoming, the tableware and eating utensils were substantial, which I think is a hallmark of quality.

The food was good, the service staff were friendly. Our first meal on Guam and we really did enjoyed the Asian flavors. The Thai noodles were phenomenon, we recommend that dish.
