“Service could do with improving.”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Great food, never had Thai before so why not give it a try. Only problem was service, I got another tables food, the waitress was not exactly friendly. Face like a slapped *****

But we had the correct food it was great, and evan with poor service it is worth a visit.

“Lovely food - appalling service.”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Can't fault the food, but the moody waitress who served us with what can only be described as a death stare, really needs to cheer up or get another job outside the service industry!

Lovely food, well cooked, hot and spicy. Recommend the food if you can tolerate a frankly rude waitress, who missed out on what would have been a good tip had she smiled and been polite.

“Best Thai Food in Iceland !”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

The place doesn't look like much, but we go here at least once a month just for the thai food - the menu has many dishes so there is plenty to choose from. Everything we have tried so far, has been very very good.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

From the outside Ban Thai did not look anything special and once inside it seems somewhat homely so the expectations were not that high. I'm glad to say that when the food arrived I was impressed by the quality of the food. It was probably the best Thai restaurant that I had eaten in for a while.

“Smells Great! Taste is different from Thailand!”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Walked past on several occasions and the smell is divine. Small cosy restaurant, typical Thai dishes although tasted quite different from the true authentic Thai food. e.g. the Thai Green Curry was very sweet. Had a quick glance in the kitchen to see that was Thai cook so may be they just adapt slightly for the local taste?

Reasonable price for expensive Iceland.
