Baan Thai is our reliable take-out whenever we want something delicious and comforting. Duck green curry and Siamese eggplant are our stand-bys, and I adore the black rice pudding dessert. The restaurant itself is OK but lacking in atmosphere, so we end up doing take-out most of the time.

There were 6 non-active tables in this small, dull, Asian/Sushi restaurant on a Friday evening. I watched the server who was supposed to wait on us repetitiously: answer phone calls, clean already clean tables, go to the back several times, talk to staff, and look at her phone, and continue to completely ignore me and my mother for about 10...

I have not had better Thai *food* in this area of Massachusetts than at Baan Thai. Notice the stress on the word food. We've been twice, once as a couple and once as a family. Parking is on the street for about 5-6 cars up to 2 hours or there is a paid public car park behind the restaurant. The... More

I have frequented dozens of Thai restaurants as we typically enjoy Thai food. The food here was very tasty & well prepared, however, I think the portion sizes are less than generous. The dumplings for example are very small & there are not many in the appetizer order. Otherwise, I found the owner to be both present & pleasant and... More

I had the crispy pad thai and I must say it was the best I have eaten anywhere. My wife had the siamese eggplant and it too was fantastic. The dinners were a great value at $11.95. We also had the steamed dumpling appetizer, which was also very good but they were on the small side and we thought a... More

Tried Baan Thai for the first time in February and was incredibly impressed. For a restaurant that boasts a very large menu, the meals were delicately prepared with nuanced flavors and huge portions. As a gluten-free and vegan diner, there were also lots of options (a nice perk). Service was also quite good. Lighting is a bit bright - I... More

I've been coming here for over 6 years and I've always had great meals here. Compared to other Thai restaurants in Waltham, this is probably the most authentic, from their noodle dishes (i.e., Pad Thai and Pad See Ew), Siamese Eggplant, to any of their curry dishes. Their prices are within the range of other ethnic restaurants in the area... More

Baan Thai is conveniently located on Main Street, more or less across from City Hall. It offers decent Thai food as well as sushi in a pleasant setting, with good service. The menu is extensive, portions are good-sized, and the prices are reasonable. We came at lunch and had several dishes, all of which were pretty good but bland -... More

We stopped here without knowing anything about the restaurant - just passing through the area and were in the mood for Thai. It was very good! The lunch specials give you so much food for a reasonable price. Soup was great. Entrees were very good too. Restaurant was almost empty when we were there (a bit on the late side)... More
