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

Food and service was excellent,....started out with fried prawns, then ordered pineapple fried rice with shrimp, mussaman w/ beef, and white pepper fish! All were delicious! We ate at the bar because of the drink selections and atmosphere! Food here is better than in U.S. Or Japan (my experience),...many say better than in Thailand! Service was also excellent! We thoroughly... More

Great food and price! Food area needs to be bigger it gets crowded. When getting your food you need to lower your plate, stand top is too low. Servers are quick.

The lunch buffet is good. Really like the lumpia and the fried bananas but they run out really fast and are slow to replenish the bananas. Gets really crowded at lunch so get there early. Like other reviews the staff are not friendly and the service is not great.

By far, one of my favorite places to experience and taste Thai food. The staff, service, delicious food made this one of my favorite places so far in Guam. We did not have reservations but were seated quickly. Casual dress is fine. By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you!

The serving per menu is relatively big and could be shared by 2-3 persons. It's a cozy good place even good for small group meetings.

We were very impressed with the Spring rolls and soups in this restaurant. The place was doing a roaring trade on a Wednesday night and was voted best Thai food in Guam 2015. Service was friendly and reasonably fast. Portions were good although we weren't impressed with the curries. They don't have kids menus but there are definitely things on... More
