I have visited Lanna thai on a few occasions, each time hoping it will improve. The food is mediocre and with drinks can prove expensive for what you get....

The food is average. We ordered prawns tempura, chicken satay and some pork dish. The chicken satay and the tempura was good, especially the sauce they gave with it. The pork dish was very bad. The place itself looks bit old and needs refurbishment.The plus point is that also serve alcohol . Ambience: 2/5 Food: 3/5 Service: 3/5

This was our first time to this little gem. We were seated in the floor seating section next to the bar. The décor takes you back to Thailand and if it wasn’t for the traffic noise it could well have been. The food was excellent, and you can have a beer and a glass of wine with dinner. Certainly a...

Beautiful Thai setting with the only one in Bahrain to have your feet underground. Great food at great price and above all it is licensed. So if you don't fancy driving to Manama, this is your place.

Don't be put off by the strange dated decor or the fact that it's really hard to park outside of, this is worth it. Really nice food, very friendly and prompt service and decent prices. The fact that it serves alcohol is an added bonus if you drink. And they're very helpful for delivery too.

We lived in Thailand for 4 years, this place is legit! Price is reasonable and they serve cans of beer which is a +++ coming from KSA. Service was wonderful - Thanks!

Lanna is one of the best kept secrets in west Bahrain. Food is great and really good value. Friendly staff. The only fault you can give the place is its a bit run down but in a way that every Thai restaurant you visit in Thailand will be. Also it's one of only 4 places in west Bahrain with a... More

We have visited this restaurant many times and it never really disappoints. It's relatively cheap (30BD for 5) and they serve Thai beer and other alcohol. And pork. Not particularly common in Bahrain apart from hotels. The staff is nice and they also deliver. I was standing outside just yesterday and it's needs a serious uplift from the outside... They... More

This restaurant is probably the first recognised Thai eatery in Bahrain. You sit on the floor in well tables in true Thai fashion. The place is getting a bit 'tire' but don't be fooled the food is still good value for money.
