Buffet Lunch

A very good spot for a buffet lunch. The place was packed but we found several seats at the bar which perhaps proved to be a blessing in disguise. Probably eight different dishes to choose from plus two types of rice. Everything tasted wonderful and was very filling. Dessert was fried bananas or... read more

Me and my wife's favorite food is Thai food. So a friend had reffered us to this restaurant a few weeks ago. Like my title says "why haven't i found this place before". We are locals and passed by this place many times. Our first experience was excellent. We've been back a few times since. The buffet choices is good... More

I have gone to this restaurant many times in the past, and I had never been disappointed. I am a usual customer, sometimes coming in 3 days in a row. That's how good the food was. Recently, the food hasn't been delicious anymore. I ordered take out and the employee that took my order didn't even know the dishes on... More

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
