“Owner one of only two tables there!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is always a little worrying when the owner is eating front of house in a chefs hat !
We booked and as the web page said we took a bottle of good wine.
We waited for 5 minutes at the entrance as the owner/ chef looked at us but did not get up from her table.
Eventually she went into the kitchen and a lovely young lady showed us to our table.
We were then told we could not byo.
That was ok and we perused the menu and wine list.
The owner / chef became quite agitated and rude and made comments about us to her friends.

We decided we would be better spending our money elsewhere!
There is no ambience and the attitude does not lend itself to a good culinary experience.
Looking at other reviews from people who went one step,furthur and actually ate there I would give Bahn Thai a big miss !!

“Christmas party”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Food was okay. Nothing to write home about. Drink service was almost non existant even though there were virtually no diners there. I won't rush back

“Disappointed at quantity and quality.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Poor portion size was backed up by poor quality of the food. In addition massaman beef was overcooked, vegetables over salted. After an extended waiting time for takeaway we were let down.

“Great food, nice decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

Hidden away in the Alatai this is an under-patronized restaurant. Good range of choices that are well prepared and presented. Service is appropriate. Price is good.

“Yes please....a little hidden gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great food..good service..very friendly staff...we used to go to the previous location in Cullen bay...better location and atmosphere there, but they have had to do their best...same chef...same ambience..minus the water nearby....we had water cres and barramundi, local, was great, a bottle of wine, steamed rice and vego spring rolls ...really good, intimate, but too hidden!! We must frequent this place more before everyone goes bananas on it....we will be going again for sure...
