“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

The papaya salad and tom yum Kung were amazing! Also ordered a whole deep fried fish in some spicy gravy, yummy but was too spicy for me. Spice lovers would love it! Whatever we had was good!

“TOP THAI”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

There are lots of places to get Thai food in Kathmandu. However, if you’re in the market for good Thai food, Baan Thai is the best bet.

This Thai eatery has two locations, one on Durbar Marg, the other in Thamel. On a recent Saturday afternoon, my wife and I headed to the Durbar Marg location for lunch. It was a beautiful October day and from Baan Thai’s 5th floor (4th for almost everyone else) location, we could see into the Narayanhiti Palace and over the Yak & Yeti Hotel.

As we frequently find on Saturdays, we had the place to ourselves. Baan Thai’s menu has a wide assortment of Thai dishes and is notable for what it doesn’t have – Nepali set menus, Thakali or the like. It wasn’t our first lunch at Baan Thai and we went directly for a red chicken curry. We also ordered Thai noodles with fresh vegetables and spicy sauce.

Moments later, we could hear a sharp sizzle from the kitchen as the chef started our lunch. For 10 minutes or so, we watched the traffic come and go on Durbar Marg. Families crossed the busy street with bags and bundles for the upcoming Tihar holidays. For us, people watching in Kathmandu is entertaining in and of itself.

Lunch arrived steaming and aromatic. The red curry, prepared in a coconut milk base, was exactly as we remembered from a recent trip to Thailand. The vegetables and noodles were spicy with the unmistakable flavor of oyster sauce – a good complement to the curry. Both dishes were proof that Baan Thai is a top destination for great Thai food in the Nepali capital.
