“"Best place to eat in Sheffield"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. I have recommended the restaurant to a number of friends who are now regulars. Not only is the food always of such good quality it is also excellent value especially the lunch time menu which is not restricted with minimum choices but a wide range of starters and mains even for us vegetarians. My favourite tho. Is the superb Sunday lunch buffet - again excellent selection of freshly made and very tasty food. Service is always friendly and efficient and the smiles are genuine. The atmosphere is fine and appropriate for all occasions. Good wheelchair access. We visit this restaurant because we love the food not just because we are hungry.We also visit in groups for celebrations and this restaurant is equally appropriate.

“Authentic thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've been many times to baan thai.
Enjoying their food always.
On a recent visit to thailand we were pleasantly impressed to find out that baan thai in sheffield gives authentic thai food. Excellent quality and very attentive tae staff.
The only comments i feel need attention is that the lighting to way too dull and it is sometimes really chilly even if you are seated next to a radiator!

“Great food, good service and a nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

I LOVE this restaurant. Evening menu meals are great if a little expensive and cooked to your liking (traditional Thai hot please!)
What I really want to advocate is their Sunday lunch time buffet. All you can eat for £11 and it is amazing. Everything is fresh, starting from the spicy salads, soups and beige fried starters (prawn toast spring rolls 'mystery vegetables' etc with dips) to the main courses and collection of Thai sweets.
My favourite starters are the carrot and peanut salad and tom yam soup although the other coconut soup with tofu and veg is very nice as well.
Mains are generally a green and a red curry, a seafood dish with green beans and the biggest mussels, a massoman (spelling?) curry, fried veg, noddles, boiled and steamed rice. All very moreish, although you will struggle if you indulge in the starters as much as I do.
For pudding there is fresh fruit, a coconut 'soup' with either banana or these slightly soft pumpkin balls (must be dried, if I understood the waitress correctly)
Service is great with a smile and the old bank that this restaurant occupies gives the place a colonial air I dont know if this is good or bad, but I could with little imagination imagine myself in the middle of Thailand while sat there.

“Taste of Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Delicious, fragrant, authentic Thai food! The crispy boneless fish is particularly tasty. We lived in Sheffield for 4 years and this has to be the best takeaway food in terms of quality in Sheffield.
