Speedy service, tasty food!

We had not booked on Saturday night and were unsure whether we could secure a table before our gig. We were in luck and seated upstairs. We have eaten here several times and the food and service have been fantastic. The menu offers a wide range of dishes catering to all tastes. If I had to... read more

We don't normally leave bad reviews but feel compelled to after visiting this restaurant. We have eaten in many Thai restaurants across Essex, Kent and London and we have to say this was our worst experience EVER! The food was so bland and tasteless that we had to ask for some salt. The rice which was microwaved was over done... More

We had previously had a tasty takeaway from Bahn Fai which encouraged us to make a booking. We had a relaxing night with the service and food being very good and for a town the size of Maldon this is a welcome alternative to the other restaurants in the High St. Only slight grumble is that the furniture/décor could do...

We had a lovely meal here last night. We ordered a selection of meat and fish dishes from the menu. Couldn't fault the service and food arrived at the table piping hot. There is a good choice of food to order and it isn't overpriced. Nice atmosphere. We will definitely be returning here in the near future.

My friend and I enjoyed a very good meal with friendly service and a warm welcome from this family run business. my friend suggested the special soup listed as hot in taste. He was not wrong. 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

Excellent food and service a good place for a special occasion celebration meal. I would recommend this restaurant to visitors to the Maldon area. Suggest booking at weekends.

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.
