The food at Baan Thai is very good. Authentic, best i can tell. The tables and seating are closer than I prefer. Only Thai place in town. So if you want Thai, it is recommended.

We arrived at 10:45 a.m. this morning. I anticipated that the restaurant would not open until 11:00, so we were pleasantly surprised to find it open. We were promptly seated in a very comfortable booth by a pleasant young woman. At this early before noon, we were the first customers in the store. By 11:30 a.m., a dozen people had... More

Lunch on a Saturday was delicious and efficient. They have good soft spring rolls. Shrimp in their dishes all have tails left on, which seems unusual when they're breaded and covered in sauce (as in, meant to be eaten with utensils rather than fingers). Our server was speedy. $70 for 4 people without alcohol.

Great, authentic Thai food. Staff acts as if it's a treat took serve you. Really enjoy eating here. Food ranges from mild to very spicy, so something for every taste, and if you're unsure they have a key in the menu to show what is and isn't spicy.

Not sure why everyone is raving about this place. I've eaten here several times, and every time was the same: it's okay. Not great, not bad, but average. The menu is extensive (translate: lots of boxed ingredients). The waitstaff wants to give good service. The atmosphere is decent. I would call it Thai Food for the American Palate. :-)

We tried spring rolls and Tom Yum (Hot and Sour Soup) for our appetizers and both were very good. We ordered Stir-Fried Snow Peas and Baan Thai Drunken Chicken and they were very good companion dishes that complemented each other in taste and texture. Service was very good!

Stopped in recently for dinner while traveling through the area. What a great stop! The service was fantastic at our table (although I'm not sure a nearby table had the same experience with their staff member). The basil wings were yummy. I had the crab fried rice which was fantastic. Nice fluffy rice with crab meat. My husband had a... More

This was a nice place to have lunch during the work week. Ample parking and prompt seating made it hassle free. The portions were pretty large for lunch but it was a bit pricey for a mid-day meal.

Great place to try some tasty Thai food! Started with their sampler platter which had some great options to share (perfect for 2), Tom yum gah, Panang curry with shrimp. All very tasty / the Thai hot is VERY hot so watch out. Finished off the night with a Thai iced tea! Yum!
