Loved the soup and lunch buffet on Saturday. Favorite dishes were thai chicken soup, papaya salad, green curry. Nice ambiance with indoor and outdoor seating. Good options for vegetarians too.

I had the green curry, which had good flavor and lots of shrimp. Service was kind and attentive. My friend had a huge portion of fried noodles which she enjoyed. The ambience was ok, kitschy and comfortable. If you have a craving for Thai, this will satisfy, if you're looking for something special and fun, maybe try another place.

Found this charm while looking for something to eat in Tumon. If you like Asian food, that`s it -- a reasonably priced beautiful Thai food buffet restaurant. Thanks that hard working lady near the counter who serves hot soup. Go early to avoid the crown!

Went there with some coworkers, just looking for something different. The setting is really cool with a deffinate tune to the Thai food being served. I ordered the red curry and it did not disappoint! Service was on par. I ordered some homemade Thai sausage to try as I do love some good sausage and it was delicious!

The food was amazing! The service was just OK, while they were a bit slow since it was busy it was the fact that they forgot to bring my meal that was the kicker. I went with a group of friends and they brought all 4 of their meals but forgot mine that I was splitting with a friend. We... More

Oh my gosh the bartender has so much personality. Was dining solo and asked to be seated in the main dining area. My food came and I began to eat but was interested in all the excitement coming from the bar. My table was the closest to the bar, only a few feet but separated by a partition. I asked... More

I read about Ban Thai on Trip Advisor and I am so pleased that my wife and I made the walk down the Bay from our hotel to dine at this gem. Everything we ordered was fantastic, perfectly marrying spicy, sweet and savory elements in each dish. The Tod Mun Pla were absolutely phenomenal and I am craving them again... More
