I had the Tom Yum soup with shrimp, and the hot Thai beef salad. Both were excellent. The soup was a bit sweet for my taste, but the ingredients we fresh and tasty. I should have ordered it a bit hotter than I did, and...will next time. The salad was spot on. Just like I prefer it. Having spent a lot of time in Thailand, I am picky on selecting Thai restaurants, and was very satisfied with Baan Thai. I will return. Also, has the Thai beer and it was tasty and cold. My server was very sweet and friendly.More

Baan Thai is a wonderful place for Thai food in Lawrence. I visited there with my colleague for lunch on a Wednesday, and was delighted with the special of the day, which was Red Curry (I had it with Tofu). We shared an order of...Porkbelly bites appetizer; we thought the bites were a bit over-cooked and were a little too chewy. Both indoor seating and outdoor patio seating are available. Baan Thai is located on the busy Massachusetts Avenue, and finding parking could be an issue. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch visit to Baan Thai. Highly recommended.More

I had yellow curry Beef, fried potstickers and cucumber salad. The flavors were nice and distinctive from other cuisine. The potstickers were were delicately assembled and tasty. The cucumber salad is tiny and more of a mouth refresher than a bowl of greens. I am...not really rating the restaurant atmosphere or service because this was take out to eat at home.More

Yeah, you can go to the brew pubs, but you can't get Thai food, a quiet sound level and craft brewed beer at half the price except at Baan Thai. We shared the spring rolls (so-so) and chicken curry, which was well flavored and full...of chicken -- would actually have preferred more veggies. The service was friendly and excellent.More

My wife and I both had the Pad Thai. Mine wasn't hot enough so Leo, or server, brought the "spice bowls" and I brought mine up to a "runny nose" heat! Leo was great!!

I ordered the Khao Soi! Truly delicious soup. The service was friendly and food was hot and fresh. The bowl is large and it’s a full meal for a someone with a big appetite.

I was in Lawrence on business and the breweries were all pack so I found this place while walking down the street. I ordered one of the noodle specials which I would describe as pad thai with less peanuts and some other upgrades. It was...amazing- it was spicy, but not too spicy. It was a good portion and it was reasonably priced. I also had the soft spring rolls which were also great. I was pleasantly surprised to get such good thai food in the midwestMore

The waiter was very friendly and helpful in poiniting out items that were within our dietary limits. They have a delicious variety of healthy foods that vegans, vegetarians and gluten free people can enjoy. Delicious!
