“Ok food”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I have had lunch here a few times and have at times found the food a tad bland for my liking. The servers were always very prompt and polite.

“Best Thai in Halifax”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We've tried every Thai restaurant in Halifax, and for us, this is the best. On this particular occasion we were not happy with the service. It took 45 minutes to get our food. We were the first in the dining room and the last served. Our servers excuse was that they only had 2 cooks working, but that didn't answer why we were the last served....

Anyway, the food was as always excellent. We had the spring rolls for an appetizer, which was good. Our main fare was the Cashew Chicken, Pad Thai with prawns, Spicy Beef, Mixed Veggies and Jasmine Rice. Quite the meal for two, but we knew we'd get an extra meal out of it to take home. The food was fresh and spiced perfectly for us. Other Thai restaurants in the city seem to rely on frozen veggies, but Baan Thai always has fresh, well cooked ingredients.

The nice thing about the ambience is that it's quiet. It has some charm that Talay Thai doesn't have. It's a good place to have a quiet dinner and doesn't feel like an assembly line.

We were slightly miffed at the delay in receiving our food and thought there should have been some compensation, but I reduced the tip accordingly.

Price including one glass of wine, a beer and tip was about $80.

This restaurant was recommended to me by friends and it did not disappoint. The food had delicious flavors and just the right spice/heat for me. As well the service was timely and polite.

“My favourite place to eat”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

My huband and I both have celiac disease and can't eat gluten. Baan Thai is our favorite place to eat. No matter what food item on the menu we choose they let us know whether they can alter the recipe to make it gluten free or not. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The spicy noodles are my favorite!!
