It almost blew my head off. The duck red curry with jasmine rice was excellent and if you want Thai food this is the... More

We had been recommended Bahn Fai so we thought we would give it a try. We were first in the restaurant so not a lot of atmosphere to start, but to be honest we did go early so didnt expect it to be busy. The owner Paul is a nice guy and had traditional Thai music playing which was nice.... More

Meal was ok but many others offer same quality food for less. Varied dishes though maybe worth a try for special occasion but will be more expensive than others

Nothing special I have been to better Thai restaurants. The food is not particularly cheap either, however service was good when I visited.

I visited Bahn Fai last night with 14 friends and would highly recommend it! We were greeted by the friendly staff on our arrival and were shown upstairs to our table. The restaurant has a lovely homely feel to it, from the comfy seating to the authentic delicious food with a home cooked vibe. We had a mixed starter which... More

Food was absolutley amazing, we were treated very nicely and appropriately, everything was great! i would highly reccomend this place to anybody looking for something different. Price wise was sort of average, a little over priced for the food but the atmosphere made ip for that along with the service we had. I would definetly go back.

My wife and I have loved Thai food ever since we honeymooned in the country 15 years ago. We have since eaten in many Thai restaurants in the UK but few have lived up to our expectations. A good Thai restaurant will have a wide choice on the menu and the food will freshly cooked and made to order. Bahn... More
