When I'm in Dublin for an international rugby match, we always seem to end up here after the match (and a few pints, as you do...). They are amazingly accommodating, sometimes for groups of up to 12 of us. Food is good, service very friendly and forgiving.

Turned up without booking early on a Thursday evening and were lucky to get a table. Or so we thought until they opened the upstairs room a little later. Anyway I suggest that you call ahead to reserve a table. Interestingly, most of the other diners were Thai, methinks from a conference or similar, and they were clearly enjoying the... More

I have been living here in Ballsbridge for 3 years now. Since I am from California, we have unlimited selection of Asian cuisine to choose from, not only that they are delicious and authentic. I have visited Baan Thai several times now and every time it's amazing. The staff are attentive, respectful and sincere. They are also Thai! The food... More

To have such nice food in walking distance of the hotel was great. I went with my two surly teenage boys who enjoyed it immensely.

Had a Dublin Office lunch to wish one our friends a fond farewell as she's leaving us for greener pastures. As always the lunch is good and the dinner better. I always leave this place feeling happy, no matter what way I felt pre-lunch/pre-dinner. Lovely decor, great ambiance though can get very noisy as it's a popular restaurant, superb food... More

Ate an early meal here on a Friday night. A little disappointed that they only offered Singha or Chang beer (Thailand is not known for national beer), but all was fine after that. Ordered the tempura shrimp starter followed by Tiger Prawn stir fry. All this was great. Shrimp were large, and they gave me four. Plenty of cashews and... More

We had not heard anything about the restaurant but googled for a thai restaurant in the area. It was a little bit difficult to find it at first but once we spotted the sign we were positively surprised by a nicely decorated restaurant with good food and friendly staff. Would return if in Dublin.

This was excellent from start to finish. Fabulous food and the staff were lovely. Don't pass this place! From someone that does a lot of cooking, there is no salt and pepper on the tables. That's for a reason. It's not needed! Mega!

Absolutely delicious dishes, impeccable service, and a lovely atmosphere, at VERY reasonable prices. I only wish I had been able to sample more of their amazing food. The low lighting and dark paneled walls make for a clubby, sophisticated feel; well-behaved children will do fine, but this is not a place for raucous family gatherings. My husband and I started...
