Went to Bahn Thai with some visitors from another country. The food was quite good but the servers made a point immediately of letting us know they were closing in an hour (which was half an hour before the time listed on the web) and then repeating this a couple of times over the course of the next hour.

Found this place while out walking around Fairbanks. It was bigger and nicer in the inside than the outside suggested. Food was hot and very good, and we had great service. I had green curry with seafood and managed to eat it all despite the very large portion size.

Authentic Thai food at reasonable prices. Not licensed. My only complaint is that the servings are too big. Almost everyone in the restaurant were getting doggy bags to take home. Reduce the size and price would make more sense???

Especially helpful if you are vegan or vegetarian to have this sort of choice. But even if not, very tasty thai food. Highly recommended. Casual place so bring the kids...

Bahn Thai is the best Thai restaurant in the city, overall. While some others have comparable food, the service and atmosphere is better at Bahn Thai. This combination puts them at number one in my book. The only thing I don't like is the a al carte rice charge with the meals, which at writing is $1.50 for a small... More

This is a pretty standard Thai restaurant, with the usual selection. We liked the fact that when we asked for Spicy, the food was really spicy, unlike other Thai places where I've eaten!

This place is remarkable - as the high quality of food and service is incredibly consistent. This is, by far, my favorite restaurant in Fairbanks. Delicious food and very friendly service - each and every time. I've tried many other Thai restaurants in town - this one is tops!

Somewhat inexplicably, there are many excellent choices for Thai food in Fairbanks Alaska. Lemongrass has always been super, and, as I have bitingly reviewed on this site, Thai House would be superlative if the service was not bizarre and completely abrasive. But dollar for dollar and flavor for flavor, you cannot do better than Bahn Thai in downtown Fairbanks. Noi... More

We were seated and ordered right away. Others came after us, were seated, ordered and served their meals before we even got our appetizers. We decided to leave, but paid for what we had. Not going to return.

This restaurant is my absolute favorite in Fairbanks. As a thai food lover, I always try to find Thai restaurants when travelling. This one is by far one of the best I have experienced elsewhere than Thailand. The staff is always smilling, willing to go the extra mile, very friendly and attentive. The food portions are more than genereous. If... More
