“Always a good evening”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We dine at Balicana often. A taste of Thai food, prepared to your degree of heat. The food is excellent and the service is personable. The location is poolside in Los Corales and very nice.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Had dinner here...outstanding! Huge servings, and excellent flavor. Price comparable to others in area. Great service. Wonderful atmosphere..you know your are in the tropics when visiting this restaurant. Surrounded by a pool, palm trees ocean breeze, beautifully manicured lawns with a laid back atmosphere. This was actually our second time at Balicana.

“Excellent Thai Food & Ambiance”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

This Thai Restaurant is found in "Los Corales" in Playa de Bavaro, located in a quiet area next to a pool which create a nice, relaxed atmosphere. The furniture and architecture feels a bit typical caribbean, not Asian themed. The menu has the most of what you would need and the quality & taste of the food is on a high level. And to a relative good price. Recommended!

“Really nice food, ambiance and service...”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

To be honest I have had never tried Thai food before. So I went with my girlfriend and had a great time there. Nice alternative music, nice environment, and really nice service. The staff was very helpful and came every once in a while to see if everything was ok. Mosquito's repellent when asked for help? Checked. Nice suggestions about choosing this or that? Checked. Patience waiting for me? Checked. My girlfriend asked for a Chicken Mee Goreng and I asked for a Beef Massaman Red Curry after trying Balicana's special entree (spring rolls, tempura vegetables, shrimp spring rolls, and chicken satay mmm...). Everything is recommended. Price is fair compared with the quantity and the ingredients of the food. They also have economic combos at noon...
