“Imaginative and tasty”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

I went here in a group of people after work. It was recommended by a local and seems to have attracted good reviews
We were seated quickly and there was a good atmosphere. The building is interesting and I wonder if it was once a bank
The menu is an unusual affair, it sort of unfolds like a map. There is a long intro on Thai food followed by many pages of choices, most of which I could not pronounce but there are numbers to help chose. There are set meals around the £20 per head mark, individual dishes seemed to be typically about £8-9
I don't know much about Thai food and the choice was totally baffling, there was too much. So I went for a started of chicken wrapped on leaves and a main course of green Thai curry which I thought would be safe. We also had some crackers and dips
The latter crackers were popular with our group but not to be disrespectful I couldn't tell the difference from a supermarket snack with rather small amounts of peanut and hot dips
The chicken in leaves was ok, I think fried, but the leaves were too tough for me go eat (although a colleague obliged and ate them). The chicken was ok but it was lumps of chicken after all
The Thai green curry was a thin soup with various veg and meat. There were some exquisite carrots cut like flowers
I thought I had taken the safe choice but it was so hot I lost sense of feeling in my lips and left most of the dish
The service was efficient but grasp of English not good. The place was very quiet
The meal came to about £25 a head which was reasonable but I did not really enjoy it. Perhaps returning with one friend I could ask more about the menu and be better informed
I would like to give it a second chance

“Food Tasty, service very good.”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Wanted to try this place for a while now, so we decided just to go and give it a try. We were warmly greeted and the table setting looked beautiful. The place was very quiet, but it was a tuesday evening and the place did fill as the evening went on, but not to a noisy level.
I can never decided what to eat so looked straight at the set menu, i was impressed that there was several set menus not just one for two people. We chose a set meal for 2 at 19.50 each. The wine we chose was off the menu they reccommend wine for thai food.
The presentation of all the food was excellant, it was tasty and authentic, the service was very good, i would like to go again

“atmospheric and tasty”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I love the atmosphere. It was not especially busy when we were there and the service was good, as it has been on previous occasions. The menu is good and the food is attractively presented and appetising. Having travelled in Thailand I find the Baan Thai also has authenticity.

“Cheerful but not especially cheap”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I ate here in a large group which is what the atmosphere seems to lend itself to. The restaurant was full and quite noisy and whilst the set menu for 2 was tasty it wasn't particularly sophisticated. I'd go again at some point in the future - perhaps on a 'leaving do' or on a group night out but not with my partner though lots of other people were doing just that. I think it's a place to 'have a laff'.

“Very slow service”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Food was ok, not great but nothing to complain about. My main issue with this place was the service, it was ridiculously slow and to be honest would make us think twice about coming back here
